Liza Lapira began her career doing workshops and off-Broadway plays with various theater companies, including Pan Asian Repertory Theatre, New York Theatre Workshop, The Play Company and New Dramatists. Her theater credits include “As You Like It,” “School For Wives,” “The Odyssey” and “No. 11 (Blue and White).”

Lapira’s first television series regular role was “Maggie,” Oliver Platt’s long-suffering assistant on the cable series “Huff.” Most recently, she played neuroscientist “Ivy” on Joss Whedon’s “Dollhouse.” She has also had recurring roles on “Dexter,” “ER,” “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” and “NCIS.”

Her film credits include Tony Scott’s “Domino,” the independent feature “The Big Bad Swim,” J.J. Abrams’ “Cloverfield,” “21,” “Fast & Furious” and “Repo Men.” Lapira will next be seen in “Crazy, Stupid, Love” opposite Steve Carell, Julianne Moore, Kevin Bacon and Ryan Gosling.

Lapira is a proud supporter of LA’s BEST, an after-school enrichment program in conjunction with the Los Angeles Unified School District. Originally from Queens, NY, she currently divides her time between New York and Los Angeles.
