Eliza Dushku Biography

Dushku was born in Watertown, Massachusetts, the daughter of Philip R. Dushku, an administrator and teacher in the Boston Public Schools, and Judith “Judy” (Rasmussen), a political science professor at Suffolk University in Boston. Dushku’s father is Albanian American and her mother is of Danish and English descent. Dushku attended Beaver Country Day School in Chestnut Hill, and graduated from Watertown High School. She was raised a Mormon, the faith of her mother (though she is not actively practicing).  She has three older brothers: Aaron, Benjamin (Ben), and Nathaniel (Nate), the latter of whom is a model and actor. Her parents divorced when she was still an infant. In 2006, she visited her father’s family in Albania after being personally invited by the prime minister. While there, she also visited Kosovo and received an Albanian Eagle tattoo on the back of her neck.

Eliza Dushku Bio

Dushku came to the attention of casting agents when she was 10. She was chosen at the end of a five month search throughout the United States for the lead role of Alice, playing with Juliette Lewis in the film That Night. In 1993, Dushku landed a role as Pearl alongside Robert De Niro and Leonardo DiCaprio in This Boy’s Life, a role that she said opened a lot of doors. The following year, she played the teenage daughter of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jamie Lee Curtis in True Lies. She also had parts as Paul Reiser’s daughter in Bye Bye, Love, as Cindy Johnson with Halle Berry and Jim Belushi in Race the Sun, as well as roles in a television movie and a short film. Dushku described Whedon as “my favorite genius … favorite friend … big brother … and the only person out here I’ve ever wholeheartedly trusted, because he’s never let me down.” Dollhouse  was renewed for a second season. The producers cited their confidence in the strength of Joss Whedon’s fan base and high DVR numbers as their reasons for keeping the show. FOX cancelled Dollhouse on November 11, 2009. The show officially wrapped filming on the second and final season on December 16, 2009.

Dushku was the voice actor for contract killer “Rubi Malone” in the action video game Wet, alongside fellow actors Malcolm McDowell and Alan Cumming. Dushku secured exclusive rights to make “The Perfect Moment”, a film based on the life of photographer Robert Mapplethorpe and enlisted the help of Ondi Timoner. Dushku provides her voice for Noah’s Ark: The New Beginning and will also appear in the film Locked In set for release in 2010.
