Liz Vassey was born in Raleigh, North Carolina and lived there until the ripe old age of two, when she and her family moved to Tampa, Florida. She began acting at the age of nine (portraying Oliver in the musical of the same name) and continued to work extensively on the stage, performing in over fifty plays at regional and professional theaters in the Tampa Bay area. At sixteen, Liz moved to New York to join the cast of ALL MY CHILDREN. For her work on that show, she was nominated for a Daytime Emmy.
Since her time on ALL MY CHILDREN, Liz has appeared as a regular or recurring character on eleven television shows including ER, MAXIMUM BOB, NECESSARY ROUGHNESS, BROTHERLY LOVE, PUSH NEVADA, TWO AND A HALF MEN, and FOX’s live action version of THE TICK. But she is probably best known for her five year run on CSI: CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATION as DNA technician “Wendy Simms.”
Liz has also guest starred on many TV shows (including CASTLE with Nathan Fillion), starred in many pilots (including DRAGANS OF NEW YORK written by and starring Hugh Laurie), and appeared in several films (including MAN OF THE HOUSE with Tommy Lee Jones).
In addition to acting, Liz is a very accomplished writer. She co-wrote an episode of CSI in the tenth season. She has sold six television pilots and a TV movie, developing for such networks and studios as NBC, Freeform, Universal, Imagine, and Sony. She is also a contributing writer to UpstageLeft.com, created by the Tampa Performing Arts Project for young artists as a place to share their stories and connect with professionals in the entertainment community.
