Erika Eleniak (born September 29, 1969) is an American Playboy Playmate and actress best known for her role in Baywatch as Shauni McClain. She also starred in the films E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial, The Blob, Under Siege and The Beverly Hillbillies.
In 1989 when Erika Eleniak was 19, she asked Ferguson to put her in contact with a Playboy photographer. As a result, Eleniak appeared in the July 1989 issue of the magazine in a pictorial with a nautical theme.
Eleniak married Philip Goglia on May 22, 1998, but that marriage ended in divorce. After filming Snowbound in 2001 in Calgary, Alberta, Eleniak became enamored with the city. She also fell in love with Roch Daigle, a key grip who worked on the set. Having wanted to leave Los Angeles for years and finding commuting to and from Telluride, Colorado too difficult, Eleniak purchased a home in Calgary, where Daigle lived. Eleniak became pregnant in 2005, but six and a half weeks into her term, the pregnancy was discovered to be ectopic, which required emergency surgery days later. It ended in miscarriage, but Eleniak soon became pregnant again. Her first child, daughter Indyanna, was born in January 2006.
