Biography

This talented leading lady has divided her time between stage and film roles in both England and the US. Lisa Eichhorn was first seen by American audiences opposite Richard Gere in the World War II romance, "Yanks" (1979), but her presence in her native land has been lessened by her decision to base in England. Nevertheless, Eichhorn has offered several critically-acclaimed feature film portrayals, even if she did not become a "box-office" commodity. She appeared alongside Lee Remick in the Merchant-Ivory production "The Europeans" (1979), opposite Treat Williams in "Why Would I Lie?" (1980) and was "Mo" Cutter in "Cutter's Way" (1981), opposite Jeff Bridges and John Heard. In the 90s, Eichhorn has begun to play mother roles, notably Jesse Bradford's mother, sent to a sanitarium, in Steven Soderbergh's "King of the Hill" (1993) and the First Lady in the pallid comedy "First Kid" (1996).

Her work on American TV has been sporadic. Eichhorn made her TV-movie debut in the celebrated 1982 CBS production of "The Wall" as a Jewish woman in the Warsaw ghetto who participates in the uprising and survives to reach freedom. She was a CIA operative in the USA Network movie, "Pride and Extreme Prejudice" (1990), and although she had never been on a primetime series as a regular, Eichhorn did appear on the ABC daytime drama "All My Children" as Elizabeth Carlyle in 1987. Eichhorn has made memorable guest appearances on "Miami Vice", "The Equalizer" and two separate episodes of "Law & Order". Additionally, she has worked on stage: as Ophelia in "Hamlet", Rosalind in "As You Like It" and Nora in "A Doll's House" in England; and in "The Hasty Heart", "The Common Pursuit" and "The Speed of Darkness" in the US.
