New Direction for Re-Wirement (Not Retirement!)

Today, Elizabeth  is pursuing her creative interests by helping film students as an actor, having played a wide variety of roles including grandmas, a cougar surfing the net for young men, a tough executive, a news journalist, a compassionate psychologist, a homeless junkie and an aging stage actress making a comeback.  She also performs paid roles for TV commercials (Living Spaces, Mauzy Heating and Air Conditioning) and short film projects. Her goal is to give back to the creative community, learn about the film industry and have fun.  Her biggest takeaway thus far is that acting is challenging and memorizing lines is HARD!  Her respect for actors has gone up 10 fold!

Check out sample clips of a few of her films and commercials here.
