David Charvet (born David Franck Guez; May 15, 1972) is a French singer and actor.
He won a green card through the Morrison visa lottery in the early 1990s. Until recently, Charvet lived in his native France, where he toured (among other parts of Europe) as a singer. Charvet and Brooke Burke Charvet (not to be confused with fellow Baywatch alum Brooke Burns) have two children together: a daughter, Heaven Rain (born January 8, 2007), and a son, Shaya Braven (born March 5, 2008). Brooke Burke Charvet already had two daughters from a previous relationship. They married on August 12, 2011 and reside in California.
Charvet (using his mother's maiden name as his professional name) caught his big break in 1992 on the American television program Baywatch as Matt Brody and remained with the series for three full seasons, until 1995. Charvet appeared as Craig Field on Melrose Place from 1996–98. Between 1995–99, he appeared in Seduced and Betrayed, Derby, Angel Flight Down and Meet Prince Charming. Charvet left acting in 1999 to concentrate on his musical career.
In 2006, he returned to acting in a movie directed by Roger Christian called Prisoners of the Sun which was only completed and released in 2013. He also appeared in the film Green Flash released in the US on July 14, 2009 as Beach Kings. The same year, he was a contestant in ABC's summer reality show The Superstars (2009 edition) and came in 3rd with partner Lisa Leslie. In 2010, he was a contestant in the French reality show La Ferme Célébrités (French version of The Farm). The show was broadcast on TF1.
In June 2010, Charvet joined The Blue Seals, a non profit organization aimed at providing a rapid response to environmental emergencies, focusing on oceans preservation, and is member of its Board of Directors. The non profit works on raising awareness on the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, helping French company Ecoceane's ships designed to collect floating waste and hydrocarbons to take part in the cleaning.
