Hometown: Detroit, Mich., according to her Wikipedia profile.
Best Known For: Elisabeth joined the cast of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation this season (after guest-starring in the finale episode of the previous season back in the spring). She played the lovely young Antichrist in the short-lived Fox horror drama Point Pleasant, as stated above, and played a doctor on CBS's short-lived drama Miami Medical in between.
Film work includes Pretty Persuasion (as the best friend of star Evan Rachel Wood's character), Solstice with fellow crush Amanda Seyfried and then-One Tree Hill co-star Hilarie Burton, the Strangers with Candy feature film, the critically acclaimed A Single Man, and the near-universally panned Mars Needs Moms. (Like the man -- Ringo Starr, to be specific -- said: You gotta pay the dues if you wanna sing the blues, and you know it don't come easy...)
In her early adulthood, she landed guest appearances on Two Guys and a Girl (after it ditched the "pizza place," starring fellow crush Traylor Howard), Criminal Minds, and an episode of CSI: Miami based in part on series co-star and fellow crush Eva La Rue's sister having encountered a serial killer with a photography obsession (and lived to tell about it, fortunately). My Date with the President's Daughter landed her a lead role in a made-for-TV movie that, based on its synopsis, sounds a whole lot like a movie Katie Holmes did for the big screen ... a couple of years later.
|Miami Medical only lasted one season, |
despite its beautiful cast and setting.
Why Ye Olde Podcaster Likes Her: I dug Point Pleasant as much for Aubrey Dollar as for any other reason, but Elisabeth was compelling as the doe-eyed devil girl trying not to, you know, reign down death and destruction. And while Miami Medical sometimes strained credibility, she was fun to watch there as well.
Plus, you know, she looks like she does. And time spent looking at someone who looks like Elisabeth Harnois is more enjoyable than time not spent looking like Elisabeth Harnois, 9 out of 10 heterosexual males agreed.

Point Pleasant -- and certainly pleasant to see.
