LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: David Charvet might be as far away from Hollywood as can be, but his good deeds are still getting the limelight. The 'Baywatch' alumnus had stopped by the side of the road in Malibu to help a woman who was trapped in her Prius after a car accident. The former actor-singer, 51, was pictured with his son Shaya, 14, helping the victim.
The French-born actor, who is known for his perfect abs and fun performance as Matt Brody in the '90s show 'Baywatch', has two children now- Heaven Rain, 15, and Shaya, 14, both of whom he shares with his ex-wife Brooke Burke, 51. They got divorced in 2020. The actor and his son were amongst a group of helping hands who had come forward to help the woman.
At the scene, Charvet wore a black puffy Nike hooded coat with blue jeans and a black cap that read, "Heroes Motors." His beard is closely trimmed and undyed too! Charvet’s son Shaya was seen wearing a zip-up hooded coat with black pants and white trainers. They stood together as they lent a hand in the mini-rescue operation.
This appearance comes after Charvet had spoken about willingly giving up a career in Hollywood to focus on his family, earlier in the year. He has been out of the spotlight for a long time. The former actor-singer talked to Page Six about his reason for staying away from the prospect of a glitzy career away from Hollywood. He said, “That means that you put your kids to bed every night and you wake up (when they wake up).” He then went on to add, “Before I had my first child I was traveling for five years in 42 countries doing concerts for my music. There’s no way I could do that again. I had to find a different meaning to my life.”
I didn’t want to go and take a TV show that was in Canada, I didn’t want to travel to Europe to do my music. I wanted to stay home and I wanted to be a good dad. I wanted to be there for my children every single day.”
But what has Charvet been up to since giving up on his Hollywood career? Building houses, that’s right! The 'Melrose Place' alum has gone on to become a contractor who builds homes. He is a partner in the Jonas Builders group, a residential contracting company in Los Angeles that builds around 10-14 homes every year.
