- For the American television and film actress, see Carole Ita White. For the British actress, see Carol White.
White was born in Deal, Kent in 1950 but raised in Ghana. At the age of five she was sent to a boarding-school in England, then later to a convent in Belgium, an experience she described as repressive but one that helped shape her future career and fuel her interest in modelling. She became a model at the renowned Lucy Clayton Modelling Academy, but quickly decided that this career was not for her. Instead she became a booker and in 1970 joined London model agency Bobton’s, where she stayed for 7 years looking after the early modeling careers of Jo Wood, Andrea Dellal and the Bond girl Tania Mallet.
