Eliza Dushku (/?d??ku?/; born December 30, 1980) is an American actress, model, and producer. She is best known for starring as Faith in the supernatural drama series Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1998–2003) and its spin-off series Angel (2000–2003). She also had lead roles in the Fox supernatural drama series Tru Calling (2003–2005) and the Fox science fiction series Dollhouse (2009–2010), for which she was a producer.
Dushku had starring roles in various films, including True Lies (1994), Bye Bye Love (1995), Bring It On (2000), Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back (2001), The New Guy (2002), Wrong Turn (2003), On Broadway (2007), The Scribbler (2014), Jane Wants a Boyfriend (2015), and Eloise (2016). She has also done voice work for numerous video games and animated films.
Eliza Dushku was born in Boston, Massachusetts, the only daughter and youngest of the four children of school teacher and administrator Philip Richard George Dushku and Judy (Judith Ann) Dushku (née Rasmussen), a political science professor. Dushku’s father was Boston-born, of Albanian heritage, with his parents coming from the city of Korçë and her mother, from Idaho, is of Danish, English and Irish, and remote German, descent. Her parents were divorced before she was born.
Dushku’s mother was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and she and her three brothers were raised as Mormons. She attended Beaver Country Day School in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts, and graduated from Watertown High School.
1992–1997: Beginnings and breakthrough
Eliza Dushku came to the attention of casting agents when she was 10 years old. She was chosen in a five-month search for the lead role of Alice in the 1992 romantic drama film That Night. In 1993, Dushku landed a role as Pearl, alongside Robert De Niro and Leonardo DiCaprio, in the drama film This Boy’s Life. The following year, she played the teenage daughter of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jamie Lee Curtis in the action spy film True Lies.
She had roles as Piper Reeves in the short film Fishing with George (1994) and as Cat in the television film Journey (1995), as Paul Reiser‘s daughter in the romantic comedy film Bye Bye Love (1995), as Cindy Johnson in the comedy drama film Race the Sun (1996).
1998–2002: Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Eliza Dushku planned to attend Suffolk University in Boston, where her mother taught, but her agent asked her to submit a videotape audition for a show starring another of his clients, Sarah Michelle Gellar. After reading the script, Dushku rushed to a local Claire’s to purchase dark makeup and other appropriate accessories for the part, Faith on Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
When she began her work on that series, Dushku was still a minor, and had to receive emancipation to work the production’s long hours. She later recalled with amusement that the judge who handled her emancipation case, who was an avid fan of that show, jokingly said that she would sign the emancipation order if she could get a signed photo from Dushku.
After completing high school, Eliza Dushku returned to acting with the role of Faith Lehane in Buffy the Vampire Slayer, a Slayer much more troubled than the main character, Buffy Summers. Though initially planned as a five-episode role, the character became so popular that she stayed on for the whole third season and returned for a two-part appearance in season four, after which the remainder of her original story arc played out as part of the first season of the Buffy spin-off series Angel. Repentant and rededicated, Faith returned as a heroine in other episodes of Angel and in the last five episodes of Buffy.
As an unwelcome effect of her portrayal as Faith, Eliza Dushku was inundated with fan mail from legions of prisoners. She said:
I’ve been getting fan mail from maximum security penitentiaries and death row. What are the authorities thinking of in playing a show with young teenage girls to Death Row inmates? They write everything – disgusting things that you don’t even want to know about. And they send me pictures – “Oh, here’s a picture of me before I was incarcerated!” – and there’s some guy sat on the sofa with a bottle of beer and a moustache, and a big gut. It’s so creepy. Way more creepy than Buffy.
In 2000, Dushku starred in the hit cheerleader comedy Bring It On. She followed that up with Soul Survivors, reuniting her with Race the Sun co-star Casey Affleck. In 2001, she appeared in The New Guy with DJ Qualls and City by the Sea with Robert De Niro and James Franco. The latter film garnered attention from a wider adult audience and several good reviews. The same year, Kevin Smith invited Dushku to be a part of Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back.
