Who is Elisabeth Harnois from “CSI” and “One Tree Hill”?
Born Elisabeth Rose Harnois on the 26th May 1979, in Detroit, Michigan USA, she is a prominent actress, probably best known to the world as Morgan Brody in the crime-drama series “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” (2011-2015), and also as Nathalie in the film “Keith” (2008), among many other roles.
Early Life, Family, and EducationThe oldest child and the only daughter born to a hairstylist mother, and a computer programmer father; Elisabeth has four younger brothers. Although born in Detroit, Elisabeth grew up in Los Angeles, California and went to Canyon Springs High School, located in Moreno Valley. Following her matriculation, she enrolled at Wesleyan University, from which she obtained a bachelor’s degree in film studies in 2001.
Start of an Acting Career
Her film studies were a result of an already developed love for acting; she made her debut at just six years old, as Abbie Granger in the film “One Magic Christmas” (1985), and the following year co-starred in the thriller drama film “Where Are the Children?”, next to Jill Clayburgh, Max Gail and Harley Cross, after which she was the voice role of Zoe Young in the animated TV series “Fantastic Max” (1988-1989). At the start of the ‘90s, she was cast in the part of Emily in the live-action TV series “Timeless Tales from Hallmark”, but it was in 1992, that Emily got the part that changed her life.
Rise to ProminenceShe was selected for the role of Alice in the TV series “Adventures in Wonderland”, and in the next two years and 100 episodes became a young TV star, winning the Young Artist Award in the category for Outstanding Performers in a Childrens Program. Her next notable role was as Julie Sutton in the drama film “Swimming Upstream”, a year after she obtained her degree, and she then starred next to Evan Rachel Wood in the comedy-drama film “Pretty Persuasion” (2005); in the film, Elisabeth was presented as Evan’s peer, but in real life, Elisabeth is eight years older than her successful colleague. She received praises for this work, which led to a number of roles throughout the 2000s. She played Christina Nickson in the TV crime-drama horror series “Point Pleasant” (2005-2006), while from 2006 to 2007 portrayed Shelley Simon in the highly acclaimed TV comedy-drama series “One Tree Hill”. In 2008, Elisabeth had the lead role in the horror drama film “Solstice”, leading to even more successful projects – “Keith”, and “Chaos Theory” with Ryan Reynolds, Emily Mortimer and Stuart Townsend in the lead roles. Before being cast as Morgan Brody in “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation”, Elisabeth appeared in the Academy Award-nominated drama “A Single Man” in 2009, starring Colin Firth, Julianne Moore and Matthew Goode, and starred in the horror “Bad Meat”, that wasn’t welcomed by the public. However, the role of Morgan Brody celebrated her as an adult actress. After that, more roles followed, some of which were well received by the public and critics, such as her role of Holly Teller in the thriller “Riddle” in 2013, then the lead role in the romantic comedy “A Christmas Kiss II” in 2014, and most recently as Lisa in the drama film “The Work Wife” (2018). She is now working on several projects, including the thriller film “Skin in the Game”, and television film “Twisted”, both scheduled for release late in 2018.
