Baywatch babe Yasmine Bleeth began her career as a model at only six months old when she was cast in a commercial for Johnson's Baby Shampoo. She played opposite Buddy Hackett in her first film, Hey Babe (1980) when she was only 12, then landed the role of Ryan Fenelli in Ryan's Hope (1985?89). After a couple years in another soap (One Life to Live, 1991?93), she landed her signature role as Caroline Holden on Baywatch (1994?97). She left the show to take on more serious work, and has since done television movies (Crowned and Dangerous, 1997; The Lake, 1997; It Came From the Sky, 1998) and films (BASEketball, 1998).
