Biography

Following a string of bit roles in a number of feature films, actress Lolita Davidovich delivered a breakout performance as a burlesque stripper in "Blaze" (1989), a commercial failure that nonetheless introduced her to future husband, director Ron Shelton.

She next supported Jonathan Lithgow in "Raising Cain" (1992) and Steve Martin in "Leap of Faith" (1993) before reuniting with Shelton for the biopic "Cobb" (1994). Turning to the small screen, Davidovich appeared in the award-winning "Indictment: The McMartin Trial" (HBO, 1995) and the hostage drama "Deadly Silence" (HBO, 1997) before joining the cast of the critically acclaimed drama "Gods and Monsters" (1998). She began to segue out of film following "Play it to the Bone" (1999) and "Hollywood Homicide" (2003), both directed by her husband, to focus on television roles on small screen fare like "The L Word" (Showtime, 2004-09), "Dirty Sexy Money" (ABC, 2007-09) and "Cinema Verite" (HBO, 2011).
