Nicole Elizabeth Eggert (born January 13, 1972) is an American actress. She played Summer Quinn on the television series Baywatch and guest-starred in the premiere episode of The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! in 1989.
I was very young at the time of the show’s premiere, but I caught plenty of reruns as a little kid. I certainly remember this episode from back in the day, watching Nicole on my little tube TV. Now that I have kids of my own, it’s been great rediscovering the show with them. I thought that it would be nice to reach out to Nicole, now over 30 years after her episode aired, to see what her experience was like working on the show.
