Real Name: Elisabeth Judson Shue
Was Born: October 6, 1963. Wilmington, Delaware, U.S.
Bio: Elisabeth Judson Shue is an Academy
Award-nominated American film actress. In 1984, she co-starred in The Karate
Kid as the onscreen girlfriend of Ralph Macchio and had a role as the teenage
daughter of a military family in the short-lived series Call to Glory. She continued
her acting work with Adventures in Babysitting (which was Shue's first starring
role), Cocktail, Soapdish and The Marrying Man, as well as playing the role
of Jennifer Parker in the two Back to the Future sequels. Claudia Wells played
Jennifer Parker in the original Back to the Future movie. Trying to shed her
girl-next-door image, Elisabeth took a chance on a low-budget, high-risk project
called Leaving Las Vegas. Her portrayal of a prostitute mixed up with a suicidal
alcoholic (played by Nicholas Cage) earned her an Academy Award nomination for
Best Actress. Since then, she has starred in The Saint, Deconstructing Harry,
Palmetto and Hollow Man...
