the tomboy when she was a little girl. Rumor has it Eliza has also studied

movie career in the movie "That Night" at the tender age of twelve, playing
Alice Bloom opposite Juliette Lewis. She has starred with such notable players
as Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert de Niro as well Arnold Schwarzeneggar in such
major motion pictures as This Boy's Life & True Lies, respectively. More film
work from the nineties included the Hallmark TV movie Journey, the Paul Reiser
flick Bye Bye, Love and Race the Sun. She began to get older roles, able to
look a few years beyond her true age.
After graduating from high school, the then-17-nearly-18 year old Eliza auditioned
for television series Buffy the Vampire Slayer and won the part of Faith,
a Slayer much more troubled than Buffy. The role began in the fall of 1998
and was only supposed to be a short stint, but actress and character soon
won over the cast, crew and audience. The role became a recurring one and
continued throughout the 1998-1999 season (the third year of BtVS). She has
since had guest starred on various episodes of both BtVS and its spinoff Angel.
She steals every scene she is in.

second billing as Missy, a tough tumbler turned cheerleader. The movie held

in the top ten for a few months' time. With four new films opening in 2001
