Arija Bareikis

Biography: An attractive blonde actress with an honest, unadorned appeal, Arija Bareikis projects a quietly powerful presence that has led to a burgeoning career on both stage and screen. The stage-trained performer made her film debut in the 1994 short "Celestial Navigation" and followed with the festival-screened independents "Ties to Rachel" (1996) and 1997's "Pants on Fire" before landing a breakthrough role in Bart Freundlich's acclaimed "The Myth of Fingerprints" (also 1997). In the film, she played Daphne, the ex-girlfriend that Noah Wyle's Warren has never gotten over. Through the course of the film the two are reunited and the painful events surrounding their breakup are uncovered. Bareikis offered a very complex and likable characterization as Daphne, an obviously strong and grounded individual trying to release the pain of the past. Her interaction with the comparatively unstable Warren is appropriately tender, and the two display the walk between familiarity and apprehension that exists with an abandoned relationship. The actress could additionally be seen in the Ethan Coen-penned direct-to-video comedy "The Naked Man" (1999). She had her first leading role in a major studio release, starring opposite Rob Schneider in the zany Touchstone comedy "Deuce Bigalow: Male gigolo" (1999).Her latest are "Snow falling on cedars" (1999) and her latest "30 Days" (1999)

Additional info: Arija Bareikis has performed extensively on the New York stage and in regional productions. Her television credits include appearances on "All My Children," "Another World" and MTV's Joe's Apartment. Bareikis recently played a lead role in an episode of "Law and Order" and she is currently appearing on Broadway in the Tony-nominated "The Last Night of Ballyhoo."
