Baywatch spent its nine seasons launching the careers of a bunch of many other swimsuit-clad babes, from Sofia Vergara to David Spade. However, we may not remember them as they only featured in one or two episodes.
So which actors boast a Baywatch credit on their resume? Here are more stars you probably didn’t know who made a cameo on “Baywatch”.
Alexandra Paul Then
Before acting, Alexandra Paul was busy being a model. She started acting with small parts in the TV movie "Paper Dolls" (1982). This role was soon followed by a role in the horror movie "American Nightmare" (1983).
Paul has slowly started getting parts that were more meaningful, including roles in the movies "American Flyers", "Dragnet", and "8 Million Ways to Die". She soon landed the role of Lt. Stephanie Holden on "Baywatch" in 1992.

Paul spent five years on the set of "Baywatch", parallel to which she starred in other productions, like "Death Train", "The Paperboy", "Nightwatch", and "Spectre" (1993-1996, respectively).
Paul appeared for a brief stint as Terry O'Brien in a few episodes of "Melrose Place", and made a guest appearance in "Mad Men". With a great sense of humor, Paul also parodied her "Baywatch" role in a cameo she had in one of the deleted scenes in the movie "Borat". If only that scene would have made it to the final cut!
Michael Newman Then
Michael Newman was originally hired on Baywatch as a consultant, and he was the only real lifeguard to ever feature on Baywatch.
Michael played a character with his name and began making appearances on Baywatch in 1989, before finally becoming a series regular in 1996.

Michael based many of the real rescues he had as a professional lifeguard to make the show's rescues look as realistic as possible. After left Hollywood behind, Newman resides in the Pacific Palisades with his family, where he currently sells real estate.
Sadly, Michael Newman was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease in 2011 after seeking medical advice concerning a tremor in his hand.
