Profile Bio Text
Liza Rebecca Weil (born June 5, 1977) is an American actress. She is known for her role as Paris Geller in the television drama Gilmore Girls and has guest-starred on The Adventures of Pete & Pete, ER, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, and The West Wing. Weil continues to be active in the Los Angeles theatrical community during hiatuses, is a regular performer at the Ojai Playwrights Conference in early August, and still occasionally performs in live theater in Philadelphia and New York. She has acted with every member of her family; in 2004, she headlined with her father in a well-received community theater production of Proof at the Montgomery Theater in Souderton, Pennsylvania, just north of her adopted hometown of Lansdale. Her first ever television role in 1994, which was an episode of The Adventures of Pete & Pete called "Yellow Fever", found her playing a bully alongside her mother Lisa, who played a teacher. Finally her younger sister Samantha shared the screen with Liza in Gilmore Girls`s third season finale, "Those Are Strings, Pinocchio". Samantha Weil played a student named Bernadette (who was unrelated to Paris) making out a video yearbook entry in front of an impatient Paris, standing off to the side waiting to make her own. In 2009 Weil returned to her roots as a regular guest star in various television series, including appearances in Eleventh Hour, CSI, In Plain Sight and Grey`s Anatomy.
As of 2006, Weil resided in Santa Monica and is a film and movie buff. She married Paul Adelstein, who played Paul Kellerman on the Fox series Prison Break, and who now plays Dr. Cooper Freedman on ABC`s Private Practice, a spin-off series from Grey`s Anatomy, in a Jewish ceremony in November 2006. Weil is left-handed, and a natural brunette, having that hair color through at least 2000; it is believed she was told to dye it dark-blonde for her Gilmore Girls role.
