Eliza Dushku Fast Facts:
  • While accompanying her actor brother to an audition when she was 10, she tripped on a flight of stairs and sustained a bloody nose; her dramatic reaction to the injury caught a casting agent's eye.
  • Beat out thousands of other hopefuls in a nationwide search to win a lead role in 1992 drama That Night; it was her film debut.
  • Her mother briefly put a stop to her acting career—which included roles in True Lies and This Boy's Life—because she didn't like the way her teenage daughter was behaving.
  • After finishing high school, returned to acting with the horror-drama series Buffy the Vampire Slayer, on which she played misfit slayer Faith. 
  • In honor of her father's Albanian heritage, she has a tattoo on her back of the double-headed eagle from the country's flag.
