Biography

While Eva La Rue may have initially parlayed her exotic beauty into an acting career, it was her professional drive combined with audience appeal that allowed her to maintain a lengthy presence on film and television. Following an early career in modeling for Fredericks of Hollywood, La Rue began her foray into acting with the schlocky sword-and-sorcery movie "The Barbarians" (1987). After five more years of minor roles in a string of forgettable TV series and direct-to-DVD films, she endeared herself to daytime audiences with her stint on the long-running soap opera "All My Children" (AMC, 1970-2011) as resident heroine Dr. Maria Santos Grey. So convincing was she in the role that La Rue later won the part of the quintessential good girl when she was cast as the titular star of the made-for-TV biopic "A Dream Is a Wish Your Heart Makes: The Annette Funicello Story" (CBS, 1995). After her on-again off-again run on "All My Children," La Rue reached an ever wider audience in 2005 as Natalie Boa Vista, a former FBI agent-turned-forensic analyst on the popular police procedural "CSI: Miami" (CBS, 2002- ). In addition to her ongoing "CSI" duties, La Rue could be seen in such efforts as the thrillers "Cries in the Dark" (Lifetime, 2006) and "Lakeview Terrace" (2008). Beautiful, talented and eminently likable, La Rue remained one of television's more favored faces.

Bonus Trivia

.

LaRue initially expressed concern over the choice of her to portray Funicello: "I'm way too dark to play Annette without a lot of make-up" --LaRue quoted in People, October 23, 1995.

.

"I thought 'No way! I look nothing like her.' But I guess I have this blank-canvas face, no features that stand out, so you can make me up to look like anyone. Actually, I've always thought I'd be perfect for the Natalie Wood story". --LaRue on being cast as Funicello in Entertainment Weekly, October 20, 1995.

.

"Eva's everything and more that I could ask for. I only wish I actually did look like her." --Annette Funicello on LaRue's portrayal of her to People, October 23, 1995.
