Brande Roderick

A native of Northern California, Roderick always knew she wanted to become an actress. She began her acting career in San Francisco working in a number of independent films and commercials. With newly acquired experience and confidence, she headed for Los Angeles. Within one year, she landed a guest-starring role in the famed Aaron Spelling drama Beverly Hills, 90210.

Luck came Roderick's way once again when she was asked to audition for a small role on Baywatch Hawaii. During Roderick's screen test, executive producer/writer Frank South felt she hit it out of the park and gave her the starring role as Leigh Dyer. In addition to her work in Baywatch Hawaii, she has also had guest-starring roles in Just Shoot Me, Jesse and The Love Boat: The Next Wave, in addition to a string of national commercials for products including Snickers, Mentos and Dr. Pepper.

Having only been in the entertainment business for a short time, Roderick has worked steadily in television and film. Already in the can are the feature film Dracula II: Ascension, in which she stars opposite Jason London and Roy Scheider, and the upcoming television movie Baywatch: Hawaiian Wedding, which will air in February. Additionally, Roderick's momentum has given her the opportunity to produce and star in an independent film, Miss Castaway, written by Bryan Michel Stoller. Roderick is also exploring her writing skills and is currently putting together her first television pilot.

In 2000, Roderick was selected to appear in April's issue of Playboy magazine and, in 2001, she was named Playmate of the Year.

Roderick currently resides in Los Angeles. When she is not working, she likes playing softball, hiking in the canyons and bowling.
