Born in 1978 in Santa Cruz Dee la Sierra, Bolivia, Elizabeth got the acting bug in school at the early age of 6. She was always the first to volunteer for plays and poetry readings - her mother is a playwright and poetry writer - and through all of her school years Elizabeth always got the main roles in the school's productions. She played the leading role in "Life is a Dream", a play by Calderón Dee la Barca, one of the foremost dramatists from Spain. In "Life is a Dream" Elizabeth portrayed the main character who explores the conflict between free will and predestination. Elizabeth's other credits include "Hamlet" and "Romeo and Juliet" amongst others.
