Bio

Liza Weil is an American actress best known for her role as Paris Geller, best friend and occasional adversary to Rory Gilmore, in the television drama series Gilmore Girls, from 2000-2007.

She has guest-starred on The Adventures of Pete & Pete, ER, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and The West Wing.

Although she was born in New Jersey, Weil spent much of her childhood traveling throughout Europe with her parents, who had their own comedy troupe.

When Weil was 12, her family settled in Pennsylvania, and her mother began taking her to New York for auditions. At 16, she began traveling to the city alone for auditions.

Her first acting jobs came in regional theatre, summer stock and off-Broadway plays. She then moved to New York City to pursue her dream full-time.

She began doing student films at Columbia University, which led to an audition for an independent film called Whatever. Weil landed the lead in the coming-of-age drama and made her film debut.

Her other film credits include Stir of Echoes, opposite Kevin Bacon, and Dragonfly, with Kevin Costner.

After shooting Stir of Echoes, Weil moved to Los Angeles, landing memorable guest starring appearances in ER, as the wife of a murderous schizophrenic patient, and The West Wing, as an intern responsible for leaking a White House staffer's drug and alcohol problem.

In 2001 she appeared as a rape victim on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.

Weil participated in the intensive Sundance filmmakers' lab, workshopping Scar, which was written and directed by Teboho Mahlatsi, opposite the South African cult star Ronnie Nyakale.

On stage, she starred in a production of Proof, and had the great pleasure of working with her father for the first time.

In 2014 she began a starring role in the legal thriller series How to Get Away with Murder as Bonnie Winterbottom, J.D., an associate attorney in Annalise's firm.
