Her first role was a small one, playing “Pretty Girl” in E.T., where her big moment was kissing Elliot, the film’s (human) protagonist. After making a splash in her nautical pictorial for Playboy, the angelic actress and model joined the cast of Baywatch in 1989 for two years, spending much of that time defending her status as an often scantily clad sex symbol. After Baywatch, Eleniak nabbed notable roles in films like Under Siege, Chasers, A Pyromaniac’s Love Story, Beverly Hillbillies and Bordello of Blood. Eleniak has also appeared on TV in shows such as Brooklyn South, Fantasy Island, CSI: Miami, and Desperate Housewives.
