Lolita Davidovich - Rotten Tomatoes

Lolita Davidovich



Actress Lolita Davidovich made her flamboyant film debut by playing the notorious Louisiana stripper Blaze Starr who became the mistress of Governor Earl Long in Blaze (1988). With her voluptuous body (much of which was faked for the film--something Davidovich is not embarrassed to admit), bright red hair, and lively acting style, she accurately captured the qualities that made the real Blaze a living legend. Born of Yugoslavian parents, Davidovich was raised speaking Serbo-Croatian. When she was 10, her parents divorced and she stayed with her mother. Davidovich was determined to become an actress, and as a young woman moved to Chicago to take classes. There she found some stage work under the name Lolita David. She gradually began getting bit parts in feature films like Adventures In Babysitting (1987). It took six months of fiercely competitive auditioning to land the part of Blaze. A wide variety of subsequent roles have allowed her to spread her wings and demonstrate her considerable abilities. She co-starred with acting legends Lynn Redgrave and Ian McKellan for Gods and Monsters (1998), a showbiz drama that took home an Oscar for Best Screenplay. In 2004, Davidovich made several appearances on The L Word, a primetime drama from Showtime that focuses on gay and lesbian issues. Though a far cry from Gods and Monsters, Davidovich co-starred in September Dawn (2007) and Cinema Verite in 2011.
