Playing EXCLUSIVE: 'Baywatch' Villain Priyanka Chopra Dishes on Her Favorite Memory of the TV Show

Priyanka Chopra might be a bad girl in the Baywatch movie, but she also happens to be a huge fan of the series.

"My favorite memory about Baywatch is the music," Chopra told ET. "That was my favorite part. It was like my calling. And to watch everyone run in slow motion."

Unfortunately, since she's a villain in the upcoming movie, Chopra won't get her own slow-motion beach scene.

In the movie, based on the popular '90s TV show, the 33-year-old actress goes toe-to-toe with Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron, who play lifeguards.

Johnson spilled a few details about the plot in a recent video posted to Instagram.

"There's a villain who's got a gun pointed at me, but it's not just any villain and it's not just any person," Johnson says in the video. "There's only one woman in the world who could handle this kind of pressure."

"Because evil never looked so good," Chopra chimes in, popping up over Johnson's shoulder.

Chopra's fans know her best for her role as FBI recruit Alex Parrish on the ABC series Quantico, but she admitted that her TV role didn't make it any easier when preparing for Baywatch.

"My role in Quantico doesn't help me as Victoria at all," she said. "[Victoria] doesn't get her hands dirty, because she has a manicure. She's like, 'Somebody else does all the dirty work.'"

Baywatch opens May 19, 2017.
