Dropped out of secondary school at 16; classmate Ron Howard later directed her in 1996's Ransom. As a teen, she was spotted outside a concert by an agent and signed to a modelling contract; became a top model of the 1970s and early 1980s. Breakthrough role was as a tough detective in 1992's Lethal Weapon 3; she reprised the role six years later in Lethal Weapon 4. Was scheduled to play opposite Michael Keaton in 1995's Batman Forever; when Keaton dropped out and was replaced by Val Kilmer (who was eight years his junior), Russo was replaced by the younger Nicole Kidman. Returned to the big screen after a six-year hiatus in 2011, appearing as the title character's stepmother in the Marvel epic Thor.
