Ran the 2021 LA Marathon to raise money for the LA LGBT Center and did not die!
~ face of a child, traumas of an adult, packaged in sunshine and delivered with sarcasm ~
Eliza Blair is a sunny cynic with one foot on the ground, one foot in the sky, and a third foot in hell. Growing up in a small town in the Bay Area, Eliza participated in theatre after being dubbed a safety hazard to everyone in sports, and trained in acting, tap dance, singing, and technical theatre. When, eventually, the city of San Francisco asked, “Can you code?” and Eliza said, “No?” and the city said, “Get out,” Eliza packed up and went across the country to Harvard to get a degree in Theatre Dance & Media and African American Studies instead.
While studying both experimental and classical theatre alongside race, gender, and social justice, Eliza continued to pursue acting outside of school, training at the London Academy of Dramatic Arts, Powerhouse Theatre, Moscow Arts Theatre School, and Atlantic Acting School. A delightfully bubbly and deceptive brash non-conformist, Eliza has always worked to use art for positive change - at Harvard, Eliza created socially-engaged experimental productions of classical texts, led public art projects, and directed the second- and third-annual productions of Our Voices, which brings together original art by survivors of sexual assault.
After solo backpacking through Europe, Eliza landed in LA and has appeared in the feature films Family Affair, Maybe Someday, and The Fall; Netflix's Never Have I Ever from Mindy Kaling, the Discovery+ sketch comedy series Book of Queer, and the period drama series Civil Defense: Red Rover; the world premiere production of Never is Now at the Skylight Theatre, and more. Eliza also served as Intimacy Coordinator for the short film "Feeling Sexual," and recently ran the LA Marathon to raise money for the LA LGBT Center because solo sports seem safe enough. Eliza aims to help people feel seen by working with artists of marginalized identities to highlight the experiences of underserved populations and support the work of folks fighting for equality.
