Bio

Eliza Dushku is an American actress and producer best known for her television roles as Faith on Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1998-2003) and its spinoff series Angel (2000-2003), as Tru Davies in Tru Calling (2003-2005) and as Echo in Dollhouse, from 2009-2010.

The daughter of an Albanian-American administrator father and Danish-American professor mother, Dushku was raised with ambition in her blood. At the early age of 10, she was discovered by casting agents for the lead role of Alice in the film That Night.

She co-starred with Alan Rickman and Bill Pullman in Bottle Shock, a drama about the birth of the Napa Valley wine country.

In 1993, Dushku landed the role of Pearl alongside Robert De Niro and Leonardo DiCaprio in This Boy's Life. The following year, she starred with Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jamie Lee Curtis in True Lies, opposite Paul Reiser in Bye Bye, Love and alongside Halle Berry in Race the Sun.

After high school, Dushku returned to acting with the role of Faith Lehane on Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Though initially planned as a five-episode arc, the character became so popular that Dushku stayed on for the entire third season and returned for a two-part appearance the following season.

The remainder of her original story arc was played out in the first season of the spin-off Angel. Repentant and rededicated, Faith returned as a heroine in a number of later episodes of Angel and in the last five episodes of Buffy.

Dushku resides in Los Angeles.
