Career Beginnings

Liz developed an interest in acting at a very young age, and began attending auditions as a teenager. Her first role helped her gain prominence on television, as she was cast as Emily Martin in the soap opera “All My Children”, a role which she held for four years. She didn’t appear regularly because she was still completing her education at the time she was accepted into the show. “All My Children” began in 1970 in ABC and follows the story of families living within a fictional suburb in Philadelphia.

Concurrently, she also took a few guest roles in shows such as “Quantum Leap” and “Superboy”.

After the end of her run, she then made her film debut in 1993 in “Calendar Girl” as the character Sylvia. The film starred Jerry O’Connell and Jason Priestly, telling the story of a group of three friends who go to Hollywood in hopes of meeting their dream girl Marilyn Monroe. The film’s story is based on a true story of a man who traveled to America and had a date with Monroe.

Continued Acting Work

Throughout the 1990s, Vassey pursued acting projects, though didn’t have any big roles as she mainly made guest appearances.

Some of the notable shows she worked on during this period included “Star Trek: The Next Generation”, “Beverly Hills, 90210”, “Married… with Children”, and “Murder, She Wrote”. She also had a four-episode role in “ER” before being cast in the short-lived sitcom “Pig Sty”, which aired on UPN.

In 1995, she gained a bit of attention as she became a regular cast member of the show “Brotherly Love”, portraying the character Lou Davis. The show aired on NBC and follows the lives of three brothers who are actually portrayed by brothers in real-life.

After her two year run with the show, she then returned to doing guest work, appearing in “Dawson’s Creek” and “Dharma & Greg”. In 2001, she was cast in the television series “The Tick”, which is a television adaptation of the comic book of the same name. The show starred Patrick Warburton and was eventually canceled due to poor performance – Warburton later spoke out about how the network Fox mishandled the show.

CSI – Rise to Prominence

After a few more years working on television movies and guest work, Liz found her next home in “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation”.

She joined the show during its fifth season, and gained a lot of international attention as the “CSI” franchise was enjoying high ratings, elevating the careers of many of its cast members. It tells the story of forensic crime-scene investigators who examine the evidence, hopefully discovering something that would solve the crime. The show ran for 15 seasons though she exited the show in its 11th season, with producers announcing that she would not be returning to the show.

She’s had a few other projects including her last film to-date – “Man of the House” – which starred Tommy Lee Jones, and tells the story of a Texas Ranger who goes undercover, pretending to be an assistant coach to college cheerleaders in hopes of protecting those among them who are witnesses to a murder.

After her run with “CSI”, she then appeared in the web show musical “Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog” created by Joss Whedon.

Latest Projects

In 2010 she returned to the show “Two and a Half Men”, after making a guest appearance many years earlier. This time around, she played a different character, appearing in three episodes of the show, which coincided with actor Charlie Sheen being dropped from the show due to drug issues, being replaced with Ashton Kutcher. Afterward, she appeared as a guest in “Castle”, and then worked on the show “Nine” which ran in 2011.

Personal Life

Liz met camera operator David Emmerichs while working on a project together, and the two started a romance, leading to their marriage in 2004. It is not known if they have any children together, as she doesn’t reveal a lot about life outside of work – she doesn’t have any social about a lot media accounts. She was previously a part of the business venture called Neurosis to a T(ee). She became very interested in it because she wanted to shine a light on how women are often overly concerned of things, particularly relationships.
