Biography for Elizabeth Berkley

When Elizabeth was 5, her parents enrolled her at Detroit Dance Company. Loving dance, young Elizabeth began to take part in several ballets, including "Swan Lake", and in 1983, she starred in some musicals (sometimes singing in Italian). Her screen debut was a role in the TV movie Frog (1987) (TV). She then got work as an extra in some TV series: "TV 101", "Day by Day", etc. In the summer of 1989, she was in L.A. and auditioned for a role on "Saved by the Bell" (1989). She got the role and became a TV star. After 4 seasons she left the show to try to break into cinema. In 1994 she filmed 4 movies, including Showgirls, and continued to guest star in very popular TV shows, like "Diagnosis Murder". At the same time, she was studing English Literature on a college in California. After Showgirls, she signed with United Talent Agency and then filmed some Hollywood films with small roles (The First Wives Club, 1996 and Any Given Sunday, 1999) and starred in some indies (The Taxman and Last Call, 1999, The Real Blonde, 1997). In 1999, Elizabeth performed onstage in London as Honey in "Lenny". Her performances in "Roger Dodger" and "Moving Malcolm", two indipendent movies released in 2002 and 2003 impressed the critics. She made her Broadway debut in "Sly Fox", in February 2004, three months after her marriage with New York artist Greg Lauren.
