When it came time to go to college, Liz won a scholarship to the London Studio Centre which taught courses for dance and theatre.

After college, Liz worked in the theatre and made her screen debut in Aria (1987). Roles in Television, and a film Remando al viento (1987), which included a young actor named Hugh Grant soon, followed. European films followed her appearance in the BBC serial Christabel (1988) (mini). Her film debut in a Hollywood movie was in the Wesley Snipes action drama Passenger 57 (1992). When Hugh Grant was picked up with Divine Brown, Liz became headline news. Added to this was the fact that she was the model representing top cosmetics house Estee Lauder, and there was no place Liz could go to get away from the press.Wanting to be a dancer, Elizabeth Hurley went to ballet boarding school at 12, but soon returned home.
