Ask Alexandra – September 1999
I was so glad that you did Melrose cause I missed watching Baywatch, and getting to see my favorite actress, which would be you, do what she does best. I was a little curious as to if you were planning on ever going back to Baywatch for an episode, or were planning to do any other major TV appearances any time soon? You are an awesome actress, and a great role model. It must be great being able to help and support the organizations that you do. Keep on smiling !
Thank you for writing. I am not going to do any Baywatch appearances, because I had such a wonderful time for those 5 seasons, and I think just coming back for an episode or so would be a letdown. Also, the season that is presently shooting in Hawaii has a COMPLETELY different cast than I worked with only 3 years ago. The only actor still there is David Hasselhoff (whom I adore), and even he, I think, is only doing the first 7 episodes of the season (don’t quote me on that).
It wouldnt be the same without Hobie and Caroline and Cody and CJ and Logan and Mitch!!!!! (Although I am a fan of Michael Bergin’s, and I am sure the new cast is wonderful).
The next projects I have slated to appear on TV are Kid Cop (apparently on this month on HBO and Showtime, but again, don’t quote me on that. The webmaster always knows more than I about when my projects are airing), and the project I shot in Australia this summer. That one doesnt have an airdate (even it’s title, GreenSails, will be changed), so keep logging on to this website for more info!
I would love to do another one hour ensemble series, as I have really loved doing the ones I have starred in : Baywatch, Fire Co 132 and Melrose Place.
Thank you for your support.
This is so wonderful to be able to ask you questions. I am one of your biggest fans. You are just so cool. I really admire all your work for the environment. I think I will start taking my own grocery bags to the supermarket and of course recycling too! Here is my question: what kind of suggestions would you give to those whose dreams are to become a successful actress just like you? All my entire life, I have been dreaming about becoming an actress. I am looking forward to reading the answers and hopefully you will give some great tips.
Thank you so much for doing your part to save the planet! Every step counts so much, believe me.
As for becoming an actress, here are my suggestions:
Another good book to read is Michael Shurtleff’s Audition and Bobby Lewis’s Method or Madness. I hope this helped, and good luck! Alexandra
I recently saw an E! special on your home and was very impressed by your attention to the environment. My husband and I are working to raise our own environmental awareness. We are looking to build a new house soon and are very interested in the bamboo flooring that you have. We love the look of hardwood, but as you pointed out, it is not very e-friendly. I have searched and searched and cannot find a source. Can you give me information on how to find it? Until then, keep up the good work.
I think that it is great that you are considering bamboo instead of hardwood for your home. Ian and I love our bamboo floors. After calling around, we went with Ron Caso, because he had the best prices, the best bamboo and was very professional. He works for Plyboo America and his number is (315) 687-3240. He will send you a choice of samples in different stains and different glosses. If that company doesnt suit your needs, then try the Mintec Corp. in Towson, Maryland. The rep I spoke to from Southern California is Michael Simco at (949) 458-8333. Also check out the web under keyword “bamboo”. Good luck! Alexandra
