Spotted at age 10 when she and her brother auditioned for a commercial and accidentally tripped at the stairs that broke her nose, half Albanian-half Danish Eliza Dushku paved her way to stardom as she acted like a drama queen. Born on December 30, 1980 at Boston Massachusetts. Being the youngest of three brothers, she grew up in a Mormon family with parents who are both professors.

She attended high school at the Watertown High School. She planned to pursue her English course at Suffolk University but stardom snatch her away.

That stint open doors for her as she stared alongside Robert de Niro and Leonardo di Caprio in This Boy’s Life. She landed on other projects such as True Lies, Bye Bye, Love, and Race the Sun. Not only that, she also appeared in television films and short films.
After her few years break, Eliza landed as the sexy and crooked Faith in the Warner Bros. show Buffy the Vampire Slayer starring equally hot and sexy Sarah Michelle Gellar. Her part is originally written for five episodes, she lasted the entire third season and reprise her role in the two-part episode in season four. Faith returned as a heroine in Angel opposite David Boreanaz. Being an effective actress in a sociopath role, she became an icon of some criminals.

The following year, she made The New Guy opposite DJ Qualls and her reunion film with Robert De Niro via City By the Sea. Then followed Kevin Smith’s film Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back together with hot Ben Affleck, equally hot and sexy stars Shannon Elizabeth and Ali Larter.
