The drama series ‘Baywatch’ took viewers by storm in the 90s and got a total of eleven seasons. The last episode aired in 2001, but fans will probably never forget the tanned lifeguards and all the drama that unfolded.
Another star that fans will remember is David Chokachi (54). The now 54-year-old actor landed the role of lifeguard Cody.
I had no experience
Chokachi had no acting experience when, aged 27, he was cast in the series in 1995, according to Danish Image magazine.
Chokachi had actually done some modeling work, as well as having an education in political science.
When he stepped into the role of well-trained lifeguard Cody in the hit series, he almost became an overnight star. According to Billedbladet, the actor has found that the better shape he is, the more scenes he has landed in the TV series.
In 1999, however, the adventure came to an end, when Chokachi chose to leave “Baywatch”. Subsequently, he had a few minor roles in other series but never achieved similar success as he had while a part of the drama series.
Here’s how it looks now
Today the star is 54 years old and according to the film’s website IMDb he is still an active actor. In 2022, he had roles in ‘Trail Blazers’, ‘As Long As I’m Famous’ and ‘Adeline’.
It also seems like the star, even after her ‘Baywatch’ heyday, has been concerned with keeping herself in good shape.
