Brainy role for a beauty
Calgary Sun, may 28th, 2000

SASKATOON - From sandy beaches on the set of Baywatch to a dark industrial building in Saskatoon's south end, actress Nicole Eggert says it's all the same. "There's not much difference between Baywatch and filming a movie in Saskatchewan because you're doing the same thing - acting," said the 28-year-old Los Angeles woman who started her career in a Johnson & Johnson shampoo commercial when she was only five.

Eggert is currently in Saskatoon filming Murder Seen - a thriller about a psychic woman tormented by the chilling details of a mysterious kidnapping on her college campus. Eggert, who also starred in the movie Anything for Love, plays the brainy and beautiful botany student Zoey Drayden, who receives a distressed phone call from a woman pleading for help. The call evokes haunting dreams of the woman's abduction, which she takes to the police and eventually turns her into the prime suspect. "This is a different character than I've ever played before," said Eggert, adding she was quite attracted to the movie itself. "It's an interesting movie. It's not your shoot'em, kill 'em, love 'em movie; it's about something else." The former Baywatch actress co-stars in the $2-million movie with Callum Keith Rennie (eXistenZ, Hard Core Logo) who plays Detective Keegan and actor Timothy Bottoms (Man in the Iron Mask, Absolute Force) who plays Detective Stepnoski. Saskatoon actor Kent Allen takes a leading role in Murder Seen as kidnapper and madman Ivan Stark.

The movie is scheduled to wrap up today on Broadway Avenue after filming a car crash scene. Eggert said she's looking forward to going home with her daughter but the last two weeks have been enjoyable. "It's peaceful, quiet and relaxing up here. The air is so clean. I sleep really well."
