“I did an actual rescue when I was shooting a scene out in the ocean and the cast member just couldn’t — this was a guest star — couldn’t stay in the water that long, so I had to literally…carry them back to the shore,” she related, noting that the show didn’t use stunt doubles “unless there was fire or high jumps.”
As for who should play the tall, sensible, helicopter-phobic Stephanie (who is allegedly in the script), Paul told me she’d need some time to ponder the issue: “I should probably think of that, cause I’m sure people will ask me that question,” she said. “You’re the first person to ask me about the movie.”
And yes, Paul is open to a cameo: “Oh listen, shooting the television series was so much fun, I would be more than happy to get on the beach again for sure.”
“Baywatch” is expected for release in 2017.
