Elizabeth’s first-ever role in a TV series came in the hit fantasy series, Once Upon A Time. For an inexperienced actor like Lail, making it into the series is quite a compliment. Not only was Lail praised for her portrayal of Anna, but it also opened the door for Lail to work on new avenues. Lail’s hard work paid off in 2018 when she was cast on the hit TV series, YOU. Lail played the role of Beck and was a main cast member for the first season and had recurring roles in the second. Her character was killed off at the end of the second season and it remains to be seen what becomes of Lail. In this article, we will take a closer look at the wiki-bio of Elizabeth Lail.
Elizabeth Dean Lail was born on the 25th of March 1992 in Asheboro, North Carolina. Born and raised in Asheboro, Lail has shared little information about her parents and is quite tight-lipped about the details of her early life. Lail enrolled at Asheboro High School and graduated in 2010. Following high school, Lail set off the University of North Carolina School of the Arts and graduated in May of 2014.
Following her graduating in May of 2014, Lail started working on small projects. While most of Lail’s career came after her University days, she did work on the 2011 short film, Model Airplane. After a 3-year hiatus, Lail worked for another short film, Without. In the same year, Lail was cast on the hit TV series, Once Upon a Time. She played the role of Anna and was cast in the fourth season of the show. She made recurring appearances in 10 episodes. Glad for the entire experience, Lail revealed in an interview that she would never forget her time on set.
“It was all so magical. It was my first job so I felt as if I had died and gone to heaven. I treasure the people I met the most.”
Rise to fame:
Following her time at Once Upon a Time, Lail was cast in the main role in the movie Dead Summer in 2016. She also made a one-episode appearance in 2017 in the TV Series, The Blacklist. Things changed for Lail in 2018 when she was cast in the movie Unintended. In the same year, Lail got her breakout role as Guinevere Beck in the TV series, YOU. Beck was one of the main characters for the first season of the show and had a guest role for the second season. Talking about how she landed the role, Lail revealed,
“I auditioned for it like anything else. As I got closer and closer to being cast I felt as if the role of Beck really fit me, and my chemistry with Penn was real. I had also wanted to work with the creators for a long time, and loved that half of them were women.”
While Lail had not read the books before her appearance, she did manage to finish the books between auditions. This allowed Lail to fully understand what she was getting into. While Lail’s portrayal of Beck was spot on, she did have some early struggles.
“Playing her makes you feel like you are constantly in a state of struggle. It’s as if she is carrying the weight of the world on her shoulders, even when she’s with her supposed « friends. » It comes to a climax at the end of the show.”
For all her professional exploits to see Elizabeth keeps her affair and relationship under the wraps. For now, Elizabeth is not known to be dating anyone and yet to marry the man of her life.
