American actress and former Miss Teen USA pageant winner, Shelley Henning, who was running for the role of the female lead star in Paramount’s movie Baywatch, along with six other female Hollywood starlets, has lost her chance of being a leading lady alongside Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron. The role went to another talented and sexy actress Alexandra Daddario.
Several media outlets confirmed the news that the former beauty queen was fighting for the role of female lead for the new movie along with six other candidates, which included top candidates such as Ashley Benson (Pretty Little Liars, Spring Breakers), Alexandra Daddario (San Andreas), Nina Dobrev (The Vampire Diaries, The Perks of Being a Wallflower), Shelley Hennig (Teen Wolf, Unfriended), Bianca Santos (The DUFF, Ouija), Alexandra Shipp (who will be playing Storm in the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse) and Denyse Tontz (Big Time Rush, Dog with a Blog). But unfortunately, our Teen Wolf favorite Henning could not get the role.
The actress, who is well known for her roles as Stephanie Johnson on Days of Our Lives and for her starring role in the CW series The Secret Circle as Diana Meade, was said to be quite eager and excited for the movie. It was also being said that the casting directors were quite impressed by her in the audition and she was up for the role. But, it seems, Daddario had the X factor that impressed them even more.
Dwayne Johnson, who announced his involvement in the movie more than a year ago, would be playing the main character along with 17 Again star Zac Efron and Horrible Bosses director Seth Gordon. The story and screen play is written by the Friday the 13th’s Damian Shannon and Mark Swift. The film is said to be a comedy which might or might not star the former cast member of the hit Baywatch series Pamela Anderson and David Hasselhoff.
While Henning was vying for the role in the upcoming 2017 movie, it had been rumored that the hot and beautiful actress, aged 28, was dating one of the cast or maybe crew members from the movie itself. She was said to be having an romantic affair with her secret boyfriend from the movie, where she was supposed to be cast. Some even say that the reason behind her auditioning for the role was that someone involved in Baywatch. We really can’t confirm this rumor right now, but if it is indeed true then we’ll ultimately find who the lucky man is.
Henning is currently playing the role of Malia Tate/Hale in Teen Wolf series and she also has several great movies like Ouija and Unfriended to her credit. So, there’s no need for her to be sad. And we think you guys should cheer up and prepare yourself to see bikini clad Daddario flaunting her sexy physique and toned feet on a beach.
Henning has an estimated net worth of $1 million dollar and you can follow her on Instagram.
