Who is Eliza Hutton?
Eliza Hutton was born in 1964. Her hometown is Kansas City. She became famous for being engaged to the late actor Brandon Lee who, as we mentioned earlier, is the son of Bruce Lee.
Before being married to Brandon, Eliza worked as an assistant to the actor Kiefer Sutherland on the 2011 TV series by the name of The Confession. She also worked as a casting assistant earlier in her career.
One quick fact about her is that she is actually one of the very few people born in 1964 who are famous. She is also incredibly rich and has impressive talent.
We have a lot of information about Eliza’s career though. Unlike her personal life, her career is an open book. She first entered Hollywood as an executive assistant director in 1998.
A year later, she started working as a story editor at the production house of Kiefer Sutherland. The two hit it off quickly and formed a long working professional relationship.
Eliza was later spotted in the movie called The Crow in 1994. Similarly, she defended the movie when there was a lot of controversy on its release. It was a really messed up release but the movie did good in the end. So, what was the Controversy?
Well, Brandon Lee died while the movie was being filmed. He was shot by a thug on the set (who was a fellow actor in the movie and the whole incident was an accident).
