She once said the advice her father gave her was, “He taught me to do my homework, to always practice. That’s how you get where you want to be.” As Karsen got older and pursued a more serious acting career, she was able to act alongside her dad in season three of his show Shades of Blue.
Most recently, she also appeared in Teenage Badass and Hubie Halloween. Karsen has also modeled, most notably for Brandy Melville who noticed her when she was just 14. She said, “Brandy Melville approached me when I was 14 and wanted me to work for them, but I couldn’t at the time because you have to be 15. Pretty much the day I turned 15 I went and got my work visa and showed up and said, ‘I’m 15 — I can work!’ and they hired me.”
At this time, Karsen appears to be grieving in private as she hasn’t posted anything to her social media accounts. Sending Karsen and her family our condolences on the loss of a true Hollywood legend.
