Her love for the arts came naturally, as her father was a well-known playwright, actor, director and novelist, so its not hard to understand that by the time she was eight, Cuban-American Elizabeth Pena already had designs to become an actress. Born in New Jersey and raised in New York, her parents, who opened off-Broadways Latin American Theatre Ensemble, were more than encouraging. Elizabeth attended NYs High School of the Performing Arts and found occasional work in repertory theatre and in television commercials. Her film debut in the independent Spanish-speaking feature, El Super, started her on a long line of feisty, rebellious characters that showed plenty of attitude. During the early 80s, she played everything, from a knife-threatening waitress to a disco queen, as she waited for her big break. That big break came in the form of the hugely successful comedy film, Down and Out in Beverly Hills, co-starring Bette Midler, Richard Dreyfuss and Nick Nolte, in which she stole many scenes as the sultry, politically-minded maid, Carmen, who lusts for Nolte. This propelled her to move to Los Angeles, where she continued to spice up both the big and small screen, including the part of Ritchie Valens stepsister-in-law, in the well-received biopic, La Bamba. Honors also came by Elizabeths way, when she received the Independent Spirit and Bravo awards for the film, Lone Star, and the ALMA Award for Tortilla Soup. On TV, she hasnt found the one series role to thrust her front and center. Co-starring roles in Tough Cookies, I Married Dora and Shannons Deal were short-lived. She is married and has two children.
