When fans think of Baywatch, some of the first names that come to mind are Hasselhoff, Pamela Anderson, and of course Carmen Electra. Despite being on the series for 1 season, she made a name for herself as one of the biggest stars among the large cast of the show. 

Electra looks back at her time filming on the sandy shores of Los Angeles fondly. In an interview with Wendy Williams, she even mentioned that she would be open for a potential reboot of the series.

"I would do a reboot, absolutely. I’m down. I’m down to do it,” said Electra about returning to Baywatch.

The series did receive a recent adaptation in the 2017 Baywatch film starring Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron, which had mixed reviews from audiences. Currently, the show's future on the big screen seems to be in question, but that doesn't mean it can't go back to its television roots in a new reboot. 

Electra only has one hesitation in returning to the famous beach, and that's the water itself.

“It does get a little dangerous in those waters, though. I mean, to be honest, we would shoot scenes and we’d jump in the water and the stunt coordinator would run over and say, ‘Listen, there are sharks in these waters, so just do your best.’ And we’re trying to swim, and I don’t know anyone who wants to necessarily randomly swim with sharks."
