Before becoming an actress, Texas-born Angie Harmon was a successful child model who later walked runways for Calvin Klein, Giorgio Armani and Donna Karan in her early 20s. In 1995, Harmon met actor David Hasselhoff on an airplane, and he subsequently cast her as the female lead in "Baywatch Nights," despite her lack of acting experience. Angie appeared on all 44 episodes of the "Baywatch" spin-off before it was canceled in 1997, and landed her role on "Law & Order" a year later.-XFINITY Entertainment Staff
