Biography

Discovered at the 1997 Los Angeles Shakespeare Festival, playing Miranda in a production of "The Tempest," actress Liz Stauber went on to a burgeoning film career, following extensive work on stage in her native Indianapolis. The young up and comer brought to the stage and screen her natural brightness and charm, imparting a veritably glowing presence. Stauber counted among her credits an early part playing a boy in a community production of "Macbeth" at age nine before landing a role as a rebellious teenager in the Indiana Repertory Theater's production of Daisy Foote's "God's Pictures" in 1995. That play marked her first collaboration with director Andrew Tsao, who would later invite Stauber to audition for the role in "The Tempest" that would jump-start her career.
