Before They Were Stars: Michelle Williams on “Baywatch”

When Dawson’s Creek was at the heat of its popularity, it’s safe to say that most fans thought that Katie Holmes was going to be the breakout star who achieved the most success, but many years later, it’s Michelle Williams who’s just garnered her second Academy Award nomination for her performance in Blue Valentine. It’s all the more surprising when you consider that she made her acting debut at the age of 13 with a small role on Baywatch, and this may be the first time anyone’s ever used the words “Academy Award” and “Baywatch” in the same sentence. You can see her in the opening scene of this episode, and you know she must be a talented actress since she has to pretend she’s not absolutely enamoured with “The Hoff”.
