Though Erika Eleniak starred as Steven Seagal's helper in well-received 1992 action hit Under Siege and as one of the upwardly mobile southern transplants in The Beverly Hillbillies (1993), hers subsequent features failed to match her box office success with Seagal. After the failure of Dennis Hopper's Last Detail (1973) re-tread Chasers (1994) and the romantic fantasy A Pyromaniac's Love Story (1995), the actress worked steadily in B-films and TV movies, playing starring roles in the horror flick Tales From the Crypt Presents Bordello of Blood (1996), TV's Heatwave (1997) and ne Hot Summer Night (1998), and action movies The Pandora Project (1998) and Stealth Fighter (1999).

      Before Baywatch, she had a recurring role on Charles In Charge. That's where I fell in love.
