American actress, producer, and writer Elisa Donovan was born on February 3, 1971 in Poughkeepsie, New York to parents Charlotte and Jack Donovan. She was originally named Lisa Adaline Donovan but she later changed her name to “Elisa” when she joined the Actor’s Equity since there was already an actress with a name Lisa Donovan. Growing up in Long Island, she indulged herself in dancing, gymnastics, and horseback riding.
It was when she turned 12 years old when she started acting. In 1994, she started to appear in small screen as she was cast as Tanya in the TV series Blossom. The next year, she was cast as Ginger LaMonica in Beverly Hills, 90210. As the years went by, she was also able to land roles in films which include Justice League of America, Wolves of Wall Street, National Lampoon’s TV: The Movie, Shark Swarm, and many others.
Surprisingly among many celebrities who tend to get conscious about their body and start to practice strict diet and vigorous fitness training, Elisa does the opposite. She said in one of her interviews, “I don’t think that talking about food and body is healthy. I believe putting the focus on feelings, desires and goals is far more useful. So whenever I’m asked what I eat I usually dodge the question, not wanting to give women more reasons to create obsessions with their bodies, food and exercise.”
