Hailed in the March 1997 issue of US
Magazine as part of "The New Young Hollywood," Donna D'Errico
is making a splash in her second season on the popular syndicated show
Baywatch. D'Errico is enthusiastically suiting up for All American
Television's international hit, after simultaneously starring in
Baywatch and "Baywatch Nights." "I was thrilled to
receive the honor of working on two television shows at once,"
D'Errico comments. "It was the kind of opportunity every actor
hopes for, and now my attention will be focused on training for the new
D'Errico's second season of Baywatch
finds her character, Donna Marco, fascinated by the adventurous heroism
it takes to be a lifeguard. Like Mitch Buchannon (David Hasselhoff), she
has the utmost respect and admiration for this day-to-day, life and
death job. This season, however, Donna will turn up the heat by stepping
on a few toes while trying to rise through the ranks as a lifeguard.
In high school, D'Errico excelled at
mathematics and was considering an accounting career before she decided
to make the move to Hollywood. Having been bitten by the comedy bug at
an early age, D'Errico is now a favorite on shows like "The Tonight
Show" and "Entertainment Tonight," largely due to her
effervescent personality and quick wit.
A Georgia native, D'Errico is also a
nature enthusiast, enjoys homeopathic philosophies and participates in
Master's Competition swim training on a weekly basis. D'Errico enjoys
the quiet life at home in Malibu with husband Nikki Sixx of Motley CrŸe
and their four children. "Our home offers an escape that is like
heaven for me to nurture our family and to retreat from a hectic travel
schedule. It's like a personal sanctuary where I can regain my balance
and stamina," says D'Errico.
