Belinda arrives at 2015 Billboard Latin Music Awards presented by State Farm on Telemundo at Bank United Center on April 30, 2015 in Miami, Fla.

Mexican singer and actress Belinda is swimming into Hollywood. 

The star took to social media to share news of her joining the cast of Paramount's Baywatch, starring Zac Efron and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. "Excited to join the #Baywatch movie and have fun with The Rock, the baddest/coolest lifeguard you've ever seen." Belinda also shared a photo of her landing in Savannah, Georgia, where production is taking place. Other scenes of the reboot will be shot in Miami.

The 27-year old Mexican actress is no stranger to the spotlight, beginning her acting and singing career at age 10, starring in telenovelas such as Cómplices al Rescate and Amigos X Siempre. In 2006, she crossed over to the English market thanks to Disney when she starred in Cheetah Girls 2 alongside Raven-Symoné and Adrienne Bailon.

The child actress-turned-recording artist released her debut solo record by the age of 14, selling more than 800,000 copies worldwide. She's since then released three more albums: Utopia (2006), Carpe Diem (2010) and Catarsis (2013). Just last year, Spanish producer and singer Juan Magan featured her on his single "Si No Te Quisiera."

Baywatch is set to debut in May 2017.
