Photos with Elizabeth Guest
Elizabeth Guest was born on a film set in Eugene, Oregon, thus Elizabeth was literally figuratively born into the acting profession. In elementary school she auditioned alongside many other children in Los Angeles to be part of Steve Allen's "A Christmas Carol," playing a street urchin as her first professional role. After singing a lone verse of 'Happy Birthday,' she was cast immediately. She started studying at a very young age at the Lee Strasberg Theatrical Institute in Los Angeles. Numerous school plays followed her five years at Strasberg. Read more... Los Angeles. Upright Citizens Brigade is her improv home now. She played guitar and sang in an all-girl rock band during high school and continues to sing and write her own songs, music being one of her many interests. Upon graduation from high school, she was accepted into the highly selective B.F.A acting program at the University of Southern California, and after a year decided to switch her major to Cinema to study something she had not studied before. She made multiple short films during this time, starring in many shorts as well as writing and directing her own. During her college years, she was cast in a three episode arc as David Duchovny's student on "Californication" earning her SAG card. She also starred in the short film "Nothing" directed by respected visual artist, Tracey Snelling, which was selected to screen as part of the 'Acting the Part' program in the 55th San Francisco International Film Festival in May 2012 and in festivals all over the world. During her final year at USC she wrote her second feature that made it into one of the final rounds for the Sundance Screenwriting Lab 2013. Her most recent project is the feature film "Kill Her, Not Me," a thriller in which she stars (and survives) in the leading role.
