  1. She has a bit of a latina look to her in some photos, which would usually indicate that she is Filipina. Her name is suggestive of this as well, although in some other shots she looks quite Chinese!

  2. here she is in the role of kianna from 21

    this story on a filipino news site says that liza is a filipino-american: “Forest said he had already finished shooting ‘Repossession,’ which also features Jude Law and Filipino-American actress, Liza Lapira, in the cast. And, yes, he did get to exhibit his skills in kali, the Filipino martial art of stick fighting.”

    here’s a great set of images

  3. Just checked out the images Christine links to – she seems to have a really nice and petite body! This is the kind of body I like: not as thick as some. 😉

  4. Plus she has that ever so subtle lazy eye, which is so hot. Is it just me, or is the lazy eye thing a real turn on?

  5. My guess just by her name suggests she is a Filipina… but its only a guess, after all whats in a name… I know a white girl with the last name of Wang.

  6. Yeah, I liked her on NCIS. She wasn’t on at all this past season, I read somewhere though, she will be back on it. The writers strike stopped it this season. I also saw her in a trailer for the movie “21” coming out soon.

  7. Wow, I met Liza back in 2002… I struck up a conversation with her one day when I saw her sitting outside on some steps in Tribeca (New York), rehearsing lines for a play she was in. I was totally smitten. Nothing ever came of it . I was always hoping to run into her again, but didn’t expect to here. But nice surprise! I assumed she was Filipino, though.
