Her film debut was a small part in E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial (1982). She later starred in the films The Blob, Under Siege, and The Beverly Hillbillies.Life in Hollywood sure was tough in those days!
Erika Eleniak was born in Glendale, California.
Eleniak's first feature-film role was at age 12, in the 1982 film E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial as the girl kissed by Elliott in the classroom scene. Her 10-year-old costar, Henry Thomas, told People magazine that he disliked filming the scene: “When I had to kiss the girl, I had to do it two times! I don’t like girls."
Eleniak was once engaged to her Baywatch co-star Billy Warlock, who had played her love interest on the show, as well. Eleniak married Philip Goglia on May 22, 1998, but after just six months, the marriage ended in divorce. After filming Snowbound in 2001 in Calgary, Alberta, Eleniak became enamored of the city. She began dating Roch Daigle, a key grip who worked on the set. She had wanted to leave Los Angeles for years and found commuting to and from Telluride, Colorado, difficult. She purchased a home in Calgary, where Daigle lived. The two eventually married. 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, and ended in miscarriage. Eleniak later became pregnant again and gave birth to a daughter.Some NSFW from the glory days.
