Pamela told ET Canada in an interview, “They called me to be in the film, and it was kind of an homage and a sweet thing for them to do,” said the PETA activist. “[But] I shouldn’t give too much away!”

Pamela Anderson's role as CJ Parker in the original TV series was her claim to fame. The series lasted from 1992 to 1997, and Anderson's character was one of the most popular on the show. CJ Parker's interests included "crystals, meditation, and dream interpretation".

Dwayne, 44, previously announced that Pamela would be starring in the movie with an Instagram post: "She introduced the world to CJ Parker and became one of the most iconic characters of a generation — for the most successful TV show of all time. A pleasure to welcome Pamela Anderson to our #BAYWATCH cast.

David Hasselhoff, who played one of the main protagonists on the show, is also starring in the movie according to this Instagram video that Dwayne Johnson posted.

The film is set for a May 2017 release.
