Alicia Arden is an experienced actress and model, who is famous for her appearances in such TV series as “General Hospital” and “Baywatch”. She is also in the spotlight for claiming that she was one of the victims of Jeffrey Epstein.
Early life and family
Alicia Ann Marie Arden was born on 17 May 1969, in Las Vegas, Nevada USA. She holds American nationality, and her zodiac sign is Taurus. Alicia has always been intrigued with the movie industry, as her mother, Laura Velgos, worked backstage in the sphere.
She sometimes took Alicia onto the sets of various movies, so she could see the process of film-making, and young Alicia was mesmerized. Her father managed their family bakery which he inherited from his own father, but Alicia made her decision – she was not going to be a baker, she would pursue her dream of becoming an actress.
Alicia matriculated from her local high school in 1988, and then enrolled at the University of Nevada. She also attended several acting schools and courses to develop her drama skills, though she hasn’t given any detailed information on that.
Acting career – first steps
Alicia’s career began with minor roles in 1986, appearing in such films as “Heat” and “Bad Influence”. She landed the recurring role of Lucy in the popular TV series “Baywatch” (1989 – 2001), sharing the screen with Pamela Anderson, David Hasselhoff and Jeremy Jackson. At the beginning of ‘90s she took her mother’s surname, Velgos, and was credited in the movies and series she appeared in as Alicia Velgos. She participated in the TV film version of the popular series “Red Shoe Diaries” (1992), played the role of Angie in “Caged Hearts” (1995), and landed the role of the girl in the video in “Trojan War” (1997).
When she was cast as Cathy in “Lovers and Liars” (1998), she permanently resumed her name Alicia Arden, then from 2002 to 2004 she played Theresa Carter in the popular series “General Hospital” (1962 – 2014).
Further acting career
She continued getting minor roles in such films as “Prison of the Dead” (2000), in which she played Kat, “Vegas, City of Dreams” (2001), in the role of a strip club waitress, and “Violent Blue” (2011) playing Cara. Among her latest works there are the role of Angela in “American Nudist” (2011), the part of Veronica in “Blue Dream” (2013), and as Tiffany Mairzey in “Micky’s Summer Resort” (2014). In 2015 she played her latest role of Alicia in the comedy “She and I”, and hasn’t appeared in any other movies so far. However, she is assigned to several future movies, such as “Treasure Hunt Massacre”, “Oh Boy!” and “Enemy Within”.
On her Instagram account, she shared that she would love to get an Academy Award, though she didn’t have any significant role to even be nominated.
Along with her acting career, Alicia is quite successful in her modelling endeavors. She’s appeared in multiple TV commercials for such brands as Costco Tire Center, Firm A Face, San Miguel beer, and many others. She is also often featured in various magazines as a part-model – one of her latest works is for Dr. Oz magazine, in which her eyes were photoshot for the commercial of eyes drops. She’s also appeared in the print ads of TightMaster along with Suzanne Sommers. Alicia has recently been featured in the Palm Springs Life magazine.
TV shows appearances
Alicia likes to appear in various TV shows as a contestant. Thus, she came to the “America’s Got Talent” show to impress the judges and the audience with her dancing performance, while her mother accompanied her in playing the accordion. Unfortunately, Alicia’s stripping to her swimsuit didn’t impress the judges, and they all eliminated the duo from the show.
Later Alicia participated in a special movie filmed at the popular event Comic Con. Alicia came to the contest in the costume of Princess Leia, and got into the movie “Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan’s Hope”, directed by Morgan Spurlock.
One of the most memorable appearances of Alicia on TV shows was her dancing and gymnastic performance in “The Ellen DeGeneres Show”: during the commercial break Alicia stood up from her seat and performed an improvised dance with some yoga and gymnastics elements. Ellen then showed the whole dance on air, and gifted Alicia a gym suit. The video of Alicia’s dance was also posted on YouTube, and gained almost 200,000 views. Alicia likes sharing the link to the video, posting it in the comments to her photos on her Instagram account.
Patreon page “Alicia Uncovered”
At the beginning of 2019, Alicia created her profile on Patreon to share her nude and semi-nude photos with her subscribers. ‘I have always been an exhibitionist, but I have always restrained myself for fear of damaging my mainstream career. But life is too short, and I don’t want to have regrets never having explored this side of my personality’, she wrote in the overview to her Patreon page. For $15 per month her patrons get sets of her explicit photos on a weekly basis. Alicia calls this projects the most personal one for her, however, she admitted that Patreon provided her a safe space where she could be as free as she wanted.

Controversy with Jeffrey Epstein
In 1997 Alicia visited the local police station accusing Jeffrey Epstein of sexual harassment; he had introduced himself as a talent scout who was searching for new models for “Victoria’s Secret” brand. Alicia was not the only female who accused Epstein of sexual harassment – not only actresses such as Jennifer Araoz and Elisabetta Tai, but also more than 30 underage girls were reported to have been abused by Epstein. Lawsuits against Epstein started appearing in 2008, but Jeffrey always found a way to dismiss the case, as he had good lawyers and many influential and powerful people among his friends. He always got support from the current President of the US Donald Trump, Prince Andrew, Bill Clinton, and many others.
However, on 10 August 2019 Epstein was found dead in his prison cell, as his guards left him without attention for some time, and he used this opportunity to commit suicide (in fact it was his second attempt).
Appearance, clothing style
Alicia has long dark brown hair and green eyes she is very proud of. She is 5ft 5ins (1.65m) tall, and weighs around 124lbs (56kgs); her vital statistics are 34-27-36, and she constantly does a lot of yoga and stretching to keep fit. As to her clothing style, living in warm Florida, Alicia prefers light dresses and T-shirts with shorts. However, her outfits sometimes cause a big buzz on the media. She once visited the ceremony of the Golden Globe in a light green dress which didn’t cover, but on the contrary uncovered the lower part of Alicia’s back.

Earlier, in 2015 Alicia had a bra-less photoshoot in provocative and explicit jeans which had no fabric on Alicia’s derriere. Her photos in those jeans caused a long discussion on whether women should wear such trousers or not, but the creators of the clothing piece revealed that they were inspired for the commercials for such jeans by the movie “So Fine” (1981), so the idea was in the air for a long time already, and they just made what was invented decades ago. Alicia enjoys this kind of attention to her personality, and doesn’t lose a chance to show off.
Net worth and salary
As of 2019, Alicia’s net worth is estimated to be around $1 million, while her monthly salary is reported to be up to $200,000, as she is working hard as a model and actress, though she doesn’t get many major roles.
