      Brenda Bakke

      Brenda Bakke

      Highest Rated: 58% Hot Shots! Part Deux (1993)

      Lowest Rated: 15% Gunmen (1994)

      Birthday: May 15, 1963

      Birthplace: Klamath Falls, Oregon, USA

      This classically attractive stage-trained performer has spent a significant portion of her film and TV career playing "bad girls" and other women of rather questionable virtue. Bakke began acting as a teen in local productions in her native Portland, OR before making the move to Los Angeles to attend the American Academy of Dramatic Arts. After more stage work, Bakke entered films inauspiciously with a supporting role in the teen sex sequel "Hardbodies 2" (1986). This set the stage for her early feature career as she appeared a series of low-budget genre quickies geared toward video and cable. The reasonable spoof "Hot Shots! Part Deux" (1993) represented a breakthrough of sorts as Bakke played an initially sympathetic romantic interest of Charlie Sheen. The ho-hum actioner "Gunmen" (1994) found her supporting Christopher Lambert and Mario Van Peebles. Bakke was a likeable party girl in "Tales From the Crypt Presents Demon Knight" (1995) and barely registered amid the violent goings-on of "Under Siege 2: Dark Territory" (1995).
