Erika Eleniak (born September 29, 1969) is an American actress, Playboy Playmate, and former model best known for her role in Baywatch as Shauni McClain. Her film debut was a small part in E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial (1982). She later starred in the films The Blob, Under Siege, and The Beverly Hillbillies.
Erika Eleniak was born in Glendale, California.
Eleniak's first feature-film role was in the 1982 film E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial as the girl kissed by Elliott in the classroom scene. Her first film role as an adult was as Vicki De Soto, a victim of the creature in the 1988 horror remake The Blob.
When she was 19 Eleniak appeared in the July 1989 issue of Playboy in a pictorial with a nautical theme. That same year she began a recurring role in the TV series Charles in Charge as Charles's girlfriend Stephanie Curtis, and also won a role on Baywatch as female lead Shauni McClain, which she played from 1989 to 1992. She also played Carrie, the high-school girlfriend of Jesse (John Stamos), in "One Last Kiss", the November 16, 1990 episode of Full House.
In 1992, Eleniak returned to film acting, playing a Playboy Playmate hired to perform a striptease for the captain of a U.S. Navy battleship in Under Siege. In the film she is described as "Miss July 1989"—the month that Eleniak was Playmate of the Month in real life.
She had a starring role as Elly May Clampett in the screen adaptation of The Beverly Hillbillies in 1993. The next year, she starred in the Dennis Hopper-directed romantic comedy film Chasers with William McNamara. Eleniak shot another movie with McNamara, Girl in the Cadillac (1995), and starred as identical twins in the interactive 1995 video game Panic in the Park. She continued to make more independent films until 2003.
Eleniak appeared on the reality television series The Real Gilligan's Island in June 2005.
Eleniak has suffered from weight issues. At one point she was underweight due to an eating disorder and was once hospitalized for laxative abuse. By 2006, she was overweight and participated in the fourth season of VH1's Celebrity Fit Club.
In 2006, she appeared on 80's Movie and Music Fest Cafe, a British comedy podcast on iTunes, in which she discussed her career with presenters Ross Dyer and Julian Bayes. She gave a lighthearted view of Baywatch and her challenge during filming of Celebrity Fit Club.
Eleniak was once engaged to her Baywatch co-star Billy Warlock, who had played her love interest on the show, as well. Eleniak married Philip Goglia on May 22, 1998, but after just six months, the marriage ended in divorce. After filming Snowbound in 2001 in Calgary, Alberta, Eleniak became enamored of the city. She began dating Roch Daigle, a key grip who worked on the set. She had wanted to leave Los Angeles for years and found commuting to and from Telluride, Colorado, difficult. She purchased a home in Calgary, where Daigle lived. They two eventually married. Eleniak became pregnant in 2005, but six and a half weeks into her term, the pregnancy was discovered to be ectopic, which required emergency surgery, and ended in miscarriage. Eleniak later became pregnant again and gave birth to a daughter.
