Erika Eleniak’s career got off the ground in the early ‘80s when she was still a child. Eleniak had a small part in the film E.T. She would stay in the entertainment industry as a model and was actually the Playboy centerfold model for the July 1989 issue. There is no question that shoot helped earn her the role she became famous for on Baywatch.
Eleniak played the role of lifeguard Shauni McClain from 1989 to 1992. After that gig ended, she stayed in show business acting in films like Under Siege, and Chasers. She’s still in the business but most of her film roles lately have come in made-for-television films.
