Elizabeth Reaser

Elizabeth told a magazine that her family knew about her ambitions to be an actress from a very early age. Getting accepted into Oakland University, Elizabeth was happy for a short time but that easily changed. With both her parents approval, she left Oakland and applied to Juilliard School Of Drama where she graduated in 1999 with a B.F.A. and then leaped into Hollywood.

Grey's Anatomy in 2007 and in 2008 starred in her own short lived sitcom, The Ex-List.

In 2008 Elizabeth starred in the Mega-Hit movie Twilight as Esme Cullen, matriarch of the Olympic Vampire Coven. She'll reprise her role for the sequel due November 2009 titled New Moon.
