Elizabeth “Lizzy” Small will star this Christmas in the television dramedy, 12 PUPS OF CHRISTMAS on the ION Network.
She had a major supporting role in the Lionsgate film SPARE PARTS opposite George Lopez, Marisa Tomei and Jamie Lee Curtis. The film is the true-life story of four at-risk high school Hispanic boys who defy the odds by forming a robotics club and competing against some of the nation’s top colleges, including MIT. Elizabeth plays the role of Lizzy, a Cornell student who impresses one of the boys with her knowledge of robotics and wins his affection.
As a performer, she started her professional career with a series regular role on HIP HOP HARRY for Discovery Kids/TLC and she has appeared in over 70 national commercials, music videos and several variety shows. Other notable credits include a guest role on ABC’s THE MIDDLE and a supporting role as the Baker Elf in THE SANTA CLAUSE 3: THE ESCAPE CLAUSE opposite Tim Allen.
As a singer and songwriter, her single ALWAYS BE THERE has garnered over 3,000,000 listens on Soundcloud. Her singing and recording interests have broadened and she is now exploring collaborations with top industry professionals. She is a true triple threat, studying dance since an early age and competing and winning countless dance titles nation-wide.
When she’s not working or studying her craft, she gives back to the community by hosting and helping at special events for kids and by attending the University of California at Santa Barbara. In 2014, Lizzy served as co-host for the Boy’s & Girl’s Club “Superstars of the Year” event at the Thousand Oaks Performing Arts Center and performed her single GRAVITY at the same event this year.
