In 1974 Karen joined a theatre group and 3 years later moved back to New York and studied with the Lee Strasberg Institute. In 1978, she made her major film debut in National Lampoon's Animal House (1978) and Hollywood took notice. Her next big break came in Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981) where she created the role of "Marion Ravenwood". Karen also debuted on Broadway in 1982 in "Monday After the Miracle, The". After a few small films, including the underrated Until September (1984), directed by Richard Marquand, and other stage appearances, she made the successful science fiction movie Starman (1984).
