Eliza Patricia Dushku (born December 30, 1980) is an American film actress, who has appeared in several Hollywood movies such as True Lies, Bring It On, and Wrong Turn. She is also well known for her acting on television, such as her recurring appearances on Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel as Faith, as well as the main character in the series Tru Calling.
After completing high school, Dushku returned to acting with the role of Faith, a Slayer much more troubled than the main character Buffy. Though initially planned as a five episode role, the character became so popular that she stayed on for the entirety of the third season and returned for a two-part appearance in season four, after which the remainder of her original story arc was played out as part of the first season of the Buffy spinoff series Angel. Repentant and rededicated, Faith returned as a heroine in a number of further episodes of Angel and in the last five episodes of Buffy.
In 2000, Dushku starred in Soul Survivors, reuniting her with Race The Sun co-star Casey Affleck. She followed that up with the cheerleader comedy Bring It On with Kirsten Dunst, which was a surprising success at the box office that spawned straight-to-DVD sequels. 2001 saw a busy time for her: shooting The New Guy in Texas and having to shuttle up to New York where she was reunited with actor Robert De Niro and director Michael Caton-Jones in City by the Sea. She played James Franco's junkie girlfriend and mother of his child. The 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, where Dushku co-starred with Shannon Elizabeth, Ali Larter, Ben Affleck, and others.
2003 saw the release of Wrong Turn, a horror film in which Dushku had the starring role, and The Kiss, an independent comedy-drama. Starting that same year, she also starred in a new Fox TV series, Tru Calling, where she played the main character, Tru Davies, a medical student whose grant is pulled out from under her, forcing her to take a job at a local morgue. There, she discovers that she has the power to "re-live" the previous day over again, an ability she used to right wrongful deaths. She also attempts to help her troubled family—a drug-addicted sister and a gambling-addicted brother.
On October 1, 2005, she announced at Wizard World Boston that shooting had begun for Nobel Son (to be released in 2007), in which she will star with Alan Rickman, Danny DeVito, Bill Pullman, and Peter Boyle.
Other forthcoming projects include On Broadway, an independent movie filmed in her native Boston due for release in 2007.
Variety announced on August 2, 2006 that Dushku will co-star with Macaulay Culkin in Sex and Breakfast, a dark comedy written and directed by Miles Brandman.
Dushku will star in Open Graves, a horror-thriller movie about a satanic game co-starring Mike Vogel.
She announced, on December 5, 2006, that she would be the main character on a new upcoming thriller directed by Rob Schmidt who she had previously worked with on Wrong Turn. It is called The Alphabet Killer and is her fifth scheduled release for 2007.
