From “Baywatch” To Playboy Babe! Actress Erika Eleniak Spashes Onto My “2021 Sex Kitten Countdown!”

Celebrating A TV Legend!

There are times when a single role makes you an Icon, and for Actress Erika Eleniak, that was her turn on the cult TV series “Baywatch!”

Along with Pam Anderson, Erika wore this red swimsuit into TV history – and had a wildly provocative career around it as well!

My “2021 Sex Kitten Countdown” has her career highlights!

Erika Maya Eleniak was born on September 29, 1969 in the Los Angeles suburb of Glendale, California.

Erika began acting when she was ten years old.

Her first film role was in 1982, when she was credited as the “Pretty Girl” in the classic film “E.T.” 

Her Mom wanted her to have a normal childhood, so she put off pursuing her dreams until she graduated from high school.

Almost immediately, fame came calling!

Erika joined the original cast of the TV show “Baywatch” in 1989 and splashed around for the first two years…while also showing up in more provocative outlets as well!

Erika was featured on the cover of Playboy and was the Playmate of the Month in July 1989.

As these stunning photos show, the camera loved her, and the Photographer captured her beauty and personality in equal measure…

After her turn on “Baywatch”, Erika starred in such films as 1992’s action thriller “Under Siege”, and “Chasers” from 1994:

She also appeared in “Pyromaniacs: A Love Story” and “Bordello Of Blood”:

The Actress ended up working on all sorts of projects across film, TV and stage.

Since 2012, Erika has been teaching acting with the Antonio Sabato Jr. Acting Academy, where she serves as Director…

Eleniak also teaches acting to children in recovery for substance abuse and behavioral issues as a form of therapy.

Bravo to this iconic Actress for a great career and worthwhile endeavors off screen as well!

And let’s not forget another Mainstream Star who “bared all”:

Barbara Bach married a Beatle, was a “Bond girl” but she also did a provocative Playboy photo shoot as well…click here to see more of her provocative career:

Sadly we recently lost another great “Bond Girl”:

Tanya Roberts had a great career, and yes, she loved to bare all as well!

Oh, and back to Denise’s breakthrough role: “Starship Troopers” was directed by Paul Verhoeven, who also made this film:

That’s right: he gave Elizabeth Berkley the chance to bare all in “Showgirls”!
