Elisabeth Harnois Wiki, Bio
Elisabeth Rose Harnois was born on May 26, 1979, in Detroit, Michigan, the daughter of parents who owned a flooring company. She grew up in Los Angeles, however. Harnois was an only child for 8 years before her parents had more children – 4 boys. “I was something like the third parent because I was 8 years old when the oldest was born,” the actress said about her family. “I adore them – they are good children. They look forward to seeing me on TV, which is great.”
Harnois began her acting career at the early age of 3 when she appeared in TV commercials. By the age of 5 she had starred in two feature films, including One Magic Christmas (1985) and Where Are the Children (1986), both Disney productions. Harnois attended St. Mel’s School in Woodland Hills and Canyon Springs High School in Moreno Valley, California.
She attended Wesleyan University College, where she graduated in 2001 with a degree in Film Studies. Harnois continued her career by appearing in numerous commercials and taking the lead vocal role in animated television shows. Her next leading actress was Emily in Timeless Tales from Hallmark.
In 1990 Disney chose her for the lead role of Alice in Adventures in Wonderland from 1992 – 1995 and during her stay on the show, she was a guest on other shows such as The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, The Client, and Boy Meet World.
In the late 1990s, Harnois starred in two television movies: The Warlord: Battle for the Galaxy and My Date with the President’s Daughter. Her most notable role, however, was that of a mentally unstable character in Carl Colpaert’s feature film Fassade. She received much critical acclaim for her performance. Her later feature films included Strangers with Candy (2005), Pretty Persuasion (2005), Solstice (2008), and others.
In 2006/2007 Harnois had a remarkable, recurring role as Shelley Simon in the CW drama series One Tree Hill. Harnois’ longest small screen role is that of Morgan Brody in CSI: Crime Scene Investigation
Elisabeth Harnois Age
The age of Elisabeth Harnois is always hard to believe because she has this always youthful appearance. “Whether it is a blessing or a curse, I have always played someone about 10 years younger,” the actress once said to the media.
When she played opposite Evan Rachel Wood in 2005, who was then 16, Harnois was between 23 and 24 years old.
“When I was 23 or 24 years old, I played 15, opposite Evan Rachel Wood, in a film called Pretty Persuasion (2005). She was 16, and nobody in a million years thought I was that much older than her.”
Elisabeth Harnois Married, Dating Boyfriend
Harnois keeps her romantic life away from media attention. This makes it incredibly difficult to tell who she is in a relationship with or if she is married at all. In an interview with People in February 2005, she revealed that she had been with a man (whom she did not name) for three years.
She refused to give the man’s name but revealed that he was a television producer. “He works in television production, and he’s a great guy – that’s all I’ll say. I’m very taken with him,” she told People. But that was a long time ago, and if she’s still with this guy maybe, chances are they’re married.
Unlike other celebrities who post about their family in their social media accounts, Harnois never does. A trip to her Twitter account shows that she can get very political and that she is no Trump fan at all. Speaking of privacy, her Instagram account is private.
Harnois undoubtedly has a wealth of experience from Hollywood. However, the income she receives per role has never been publicly disclosed, making it difficult to determine her net worth. However, a number of sources have estimated her net worth at over $1 million.
