The much-talked about Baywatch movie starring Priyanka Chopra, Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron will pay a “sweet homage” to actor Pamela Anderson’s iconic character CJ Parker.
Anderson, 48, played the bubbly lifeguard in the original TV series from 1992 to 1997 and was thrilled to get a call from producers asking her to take part in the new movie, which stars Dwayne Johnson, Zac Efron and Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra, reported Female First.
She introduced the world to "CJ Parker" and became one of the most iconic characters of a generation - for the most successful TV show of all time. A pleasure to welcome (as gorgeous as ever) Pamela Anderson to our #BAYWATCH cast. We couldn't have made this movie without you. Welcome home. Thrilled you had a blast with us! #BAYWATCH MAY 19, 2017. #PamAnderson #OS #OriginalSmokestack
“They called me to be in the film, and it was kind of a homage and a sweet thing for them to do. [But] I shouldn’t give too much away! Dwayne is the sweetest guy, he’s so sweet in person. I guess I had met him plenty of times, but I didn’t remember,” she said.
The film will release in May 2017.
