While Baywatch may have bombed at the box office, I’m sure men all over the world will be hoping for a sequel just to get another look at these gorgeous ladies.
So we decided to pick out some fun facts about the stars of Baywatch and maybe you’ll decide to go watch it again in cinemas to help with ticket sales…haha!
Kelly Rohrbach as C.J. Parker
Kelly Rohrbach who plays C.J. Parker is an avid golfer. Kelly was encouraged by her Dad to pick up a club at the age of 4, and she hasn’t stopped swinging since! Kelly even ended up attending university on a golfing scholarship!
She pressured producers to give her Baywatch character a personality saying she wasn’t interested in playing the hot-girl role.Not content with playing a bimbo, the actress suggested a few changes for C.J. who was written as eye candy but was made a modern girl.
Kelly Brook was rumored to be in contention for CJ Parker at one point, along with Kate Upton and Charlotte McKinney, but Brook later denied the rumor, though Upton and McKinney remained silent. The role later went to Kelly Rohrbach
Alexandra Daddario as Summer
Alexandra Daddario was cast as Summer after she beat out Nina Dobrev, Ashley Benson, Alexandra Shipp, Shelley Hennig, Bianca A. Santos, and Denyse Tontz, who were considered for the role.
She dropped out of high-school for her first TV role. Originally she was cast in All My Children only for a short term, but the producers liked her so much they kept her in.
Her father, Richard Daddario, worked as part of the U.S. Department of Justice in Moscow, Russia. In 2010, he was appointed as the New York City Police Department’s Deputy Commissioner for Counterterrorism.
Today, her family hold great responsibility for maintaining law and order in the Big Apple.
Ilfenesh Hadera as Stephanie Holden
Ilfenesh Hadera once considered DJ-ing. She says she went to DJ school at this place called DubSpot on 14th Street. She adds that she loves introducing people to new music.
She lived with her parents until she was 30. She says financially, it lifted a huge burden, and that allowed her to focus in a way that she wouldn’t be able to otherwise. No shame in living at home. If it propels you to where you need to go, you do what you’ve got to do.
She prefers the subway over Uber. According to her, it’s just the fastest way to get around the city.
Baywatch is playing in cinemas now
