Name: Elisabeth Shue
Birth Date: October 6, 1963
Birth Place: Wilmington, Delaware, USA
There was a
time when Elisabeth Shue seemed to appear in
every B-movie out there (Karate Kid, Cocktail
and Adventures in Babysitting come to mind).
Then came the change and baby-faced Elisabeth
seemingly grew up before our eyes in Leaving
Shue was born in Wilmington, Delaware, into
a prosperous and well-educated family and grew
up in Bergen and Essex counties in New Jersey.
Her parents divorced while she was in the fourth
grade. Her father, who was active in Republican
politics, once unsuccessfully ran for the U.S.
Senate in New Jersey. Shue graduated from Columbia
High School, in Maplewood, New Jersey, and attended
Wellesley College and Harvard University, from
which she withdrew to pursue her acting career.
She returned to Harvard, 15 years after withdrawing,
to finish her degree in Government in 2000.
During her studies at Columbia and after her
parents' divorce, she found a way to make extra
money by acting in television commercials. A
state junior level gymnast, Shue became a common
sight in ads for Burger King, DeBeers diamonds,
and Hellman's mayonnaise.
In 1984, she co-starred in The Karate Kid as
the onscreen girlfriend of Ralph Macchio, and
had a role as the teenage daughter of a military
family in the short-lived series Call to Glory.
She continued her acting work with Adventures
in Babysitting, her first starring role, Cocktail,
Soapdish, and The Marrying Man. Trying to shed
her girl-next-door image, Shue took a chance
on a low-budget, high-risk project called Leaving
Las Vegas. Her portrayal of a prostitute mixed
up with a suicidal alcoholic played by Nicolas
Cage earned her an Academy Award nomination
for Best Actress. Since then, she has starred
in The Saint, Deconstructing Harry, Palmetto,
and Hollow Man.
In 2006, Shue and her two brothers are producing
Gracie, a movie about a teenage girl with an
interest in soccer, in part based on Elisabeth's
own experience. It is in part filmed on location
in areas where she grew up.
Known among her friends and family as "Lisa,"
Shue is married to Davis Guggenheim, director
of the HBO TV series Deadwood. They have a son,
Miles William (b. November 11, 1997), and two
daughters, Stella Street (b. March 19, 2001)
and Agnes Charles (b. June 18, 2006).
Her brother is actor Andrew Shue, of Melrose
Place fame. Another brother, William, died in
1988 at the age of 26 from a freak accident
while on family vacation. Son Miles's second
name is in homage to Will.
