Elizabeth Adams McCord
Actor Name: Téa Leoni
Born in New York City, Téa Leoni became interested in acting through the influence of her grandmother, a former Broadway actress. Nicknamed Sarah Bernhardt because of her melodramatic tendencies, Leoni didn’t pursue her craft immediately. Instead, she studied anthropology and psychology at Sarah Lawrence and then took time off from school to travel, living in Tokyo, Italy and St. Croix. Upon her return to New York, she went on her first audition.
She has appeared in many feature films, including “Tower Heist,” “Ghost Town,” “You Kill Me,” “Fun with Dick and Jane,” “Flirting with Disaster,” “Deep Impact,” “The Smell of Success,” “House of D,” “Spanglish,” “People I Know,” “Hollywood Ending,” “Jurassic Park III” and “The Family Man,” among others.
