Lisa Marie Biography

Birth Name: Lisa Marie
Born: 1971
Birth Place: Piscataway, New Jersey, USA

Her first film with Burton was the biopic "Ed Wood" (1994), playing 50s horror show hostess Vampira (nee Maila Nurmi). Decked out in Vampira's trademark black fishtail gown and long wig, eyebrows winging off her forehead, Lisa Marie lurched elegantly through her role. She was even more attention-getting in Burton's "Mars Attacks!" (1996), as a silent and deadly Martian Girl, disguised as a Marilyn Monroe-like sexpot to gain access to the White House. Again, Lisa Marie teetered about in a clinging, skin-tight gown, this time topped by a huge blonde wig, ostensibly to cover her Martian brain. She subsequently acted in Burton's "Sleepy Hollow" (1999, as Ichobod Crane's mother) and "Planet of the Apes" (2001, as one of the simians).
