Career

Dushku was discovered by casting agents at the age of 10. She was selected in a five-month search for the lead role of Alice in the film That Night. Dushku in 1993 landed a role as Pearl alongside Robert De Niro and Leonardo DiCaprio in This Boy’s Life, a role that she said opened a lot of doors for her.

Dushku wanted to attend Suffolk University in Boston, where her mother taught at the time, but her agent asked her to submit a videotape audition for a show starring another client of his, Sarah Michelle Gellar. Immediately after reading the script, Dushku rushed to a local Claire’s and bought dark makeup and other appropriate accessories for the part, Faith on Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Dushku was still a minor, when she began her work on that series, and had to receive emancipation to work the production’s long hours. She later remembers with amusement that the judge who handled her emancipation case, an avid fan of that show, jokingly said that she would sign the emancipation order if she could get a signed photo from Dushku.

After high school, Dushku returned to acting with the role of Faith Lehane on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, a Slayer much more troubled than the main character Buffy Summers. The character initially planned as a five-episode role, became so popular that she stayed on for the whole third season and returned in season four, for a two-part appearance after which the remainder of her original story arc was played out as part of the first season of the Buffy spin-off series Angel. Faith returned as a heroine in other episodes of Angel, repentant and rededicated, and in the last five episodes of Buffy.

She turned down a role in a spin-off of Buffy The Vampire Slayer which would have been about Faith. She has played many roles as a bad girl in movies and relishes the opportunities.

Eliza Dushku Maxim

In May 2001, in an interview with Maxim, Dushkutalking about her roles says;, “It’s easy to play a bad girl: You just do everything you’ve been told not to do, and you don’t have to deal with the consequences, because it’s only acting.”

CBS paid $9.5 million to ‘Bull’ actress Eliza Dushku over harassment claim

Source: mashable.com

Bull actress Eliza Dushku was paid $9.5 million by CBS to keep quiet over a sexual harassment claim against the show’s lead, Michael Weatherly.

The New York Times reports that Dushku was paid the sum after going through mediation with CBS, and the amount was equivalent to what she would’ve earned if she’d remained a cast member for four seasons.

Dushku joined the Bull cast in March 2017 for three episodes, with plans to make her a full-time cast member.

Then reportedly followed uncomfortable comments from Weatherly about Dushku’s appearance, a rape joke, and talk about a threesome.

Dushku confronted Weatherly about the comments, but was shortly written off the show, in what she thought was a result of those concerns being raised.

“The allegations in Ms. Dushku’s claims are an example that, while we remain committed to a culture defined by a safe, inclusive and respectful workplace, our work is far from done,” a CBS spokesperson told Mashable in an emailed statement.

“The settlement of these claims reflects the projected amount that Ms. Dushku would have received for the balance of her contract as a series regular, and was determined in a mutually agreed upon mediation process at the time.”

Weatherly apologized for his behavior to the Times, admitting to the newspaper that “during the course of taping our show, I made some jokes mocking some lines in the script.”

“When Eliza told me that she wasn’t comfortable with my language and attempt at humor, I was mortified to have offended her and immediately apologized. After reflecting on this further, I better understand that what I said was both not funny and not appropriate and I am sorry and regret the pain this caused Eliza,” he added.

The settlement comes after longtime CBS head, Les Moonves, was ousted after multiple sexual misconduct allegations.

The Times also reported recently that Moonves had “destroyed evidence and misled investigators” to help his reputation and save his $120 million severance package.
