As soon as Michele Maika won the coveted role of Rick Schroder's love interest on NYPD Blue (in 1999), she knew that nude scenes were in her future. "My manager called and said, 'Guess what? Your bare butt's going to be on NYPD Blue!'" Maika later recalled. But the actress didn't meet Schroder until the morning of their first scene together—in bed. "It was pretty hilarious because it was like, 'Hi, Rick, nice to meet you. Let's get naked!'" she recalled. "I knew they couldn't show too much of me, but they sure showed a lot more than I thought they would."
