Watch the video: “Baywatch” – What became of Pamela Anderson’s predecessor Erika Eleniak?
In the role of Shauni McClain, Erika Eleniak delights numerous fans in the cult series “Baywatch”.
From 1989 the actress embodied a leading role in the lifeguard series.
Her serial friend, actor Billy Warlock, also becomes her partner in real life.
After splitting from her co-star, Eleniak left the series in 1992.
And makes room for a “Baywatch” newcomer: Pamela Anderson.
After her “Baywatch” exit, Eleniak achieved another success in 1992.
She stars alongside Steven Segal in the action film Red Alert.
The success of “Baywatch” and “Alert Level: Red” cannot be followed in her subsequent projects.
Despite numerous TV and independent productions, she was denied another hit.
In 2009 she appeared as a coach in the German talent show “Germany’s Next Top Model”. The occasion: A “Baywatch” shoot.
Apparently Erika Eleniak still hasn’t had enough of the cult series, even decades after she left.
