Mom, Pro-Am Ballroom Dancing Champ, Baywatch Babe, Austin Powers Fembot & Playboy Playmate
Playmate alumn, actress and model Barbara Moore has wowed Playboy subscribers as one of the most popular Playmates of all time. Barbara was introduced to Playboy’s US readership as the publication’s Centerfold for the month of December 1992.
Moore is an ambassador for Beauty Saving the World (BSW) and was interviewed in this segment (below).
Model-turned-actress was cast in the coveted role of lifeguard in the NBC hit series Baywatch. Now in syndication, the program is one of the most viewed in television history, and “Baywatch Babes” now include a roster of many glamorous icons with male and female fans on multiple continents.
While Moore has earned the distinction as a notable alumn through ambassadorships with two of the most iconic media entertainment brands in the world, her on-camera credits can’t be overstated. Beginning her acting career with roles on Primetime TV, she diversified her filmography with mega-feature film credits like her role as a fembot in the super huge Austin Powers (Mike Myers) franchise. Installments of the spectacularly outrageous and successful box office hit propelled Playboy Playmates like Moore and a selection of feature celebrity models, also with dual credentials (e.g. Cindy Margolis), to unprecedented heights in global popularity.
Clearly, the fembots have added to their respective followings by association with the International Man of Mystery. Barbara jokes that her fame as a fembot now rivals her popularity as a Playmate. The current wherabouts of Moore and her cohort of blonde and lethal operators, are chronicled in this press update: http://uproxx.com/hitfix/the-fembots-of-austin-powers-where-are-they-now/
But her appearance in the outrageous spy comedy is just more indication substantiating just how an affiliation with Playboy catapults one to remarkable fame. And all this follows an entirely different career aspiration, which serves as a testament to her ambition and discipline. After Playboy, the model, actress and spokesperson became a professional ballroom dancer and instructor. And on top of that she was a two-time Pro-Am Ballroom Dance Champion.
