Elizabeth Tea Pantaleoni
25 February 1966,
New York, New York, USA

Tea Leoni was born and raised in New York and attended Brearley, a fine private girls' school. She went on to study anthropology and psychology at Sarah Lawrence College. After which Tea went globetrotting, with stops in Japan, Italy, and the resort island of St. Croix.

Tea says of her travels, "It wasn't just running around. I was never into that Eurorail stuff. In Italy, I was trying to find out family's Italian version of Roots. Japan was because I wanted to get on the Asian side of things. I tried a Japanese soap opera, but that didn't work out, so I did some athletic modeling and taught English. Well, not exactly. I helped teach Japanese businessmen being sent to the States how to properly relate to American women. In St. Croix, I was a crew hand on a sail boat that took vacationers out sailing."

Tea's grandmother was an actress as was her great-uncle, so she comes by acting naturally. Her schoolgirl theater experience didn't go beyond a sixth-grade performance of Gilbert & Sullivan's H.M.S. Pinafore though. Her career began in Boston. She recalls, "There was a cattle call for actresses for a new spin-off from Charlie's Angels called Angels '88, and a friend talked me into going, and I got the part, and off I went to L.A." Unfortunately the show never aired.

Tea played a divorced photojournalist on a sleazy tabloid on TV's "The Naked Truth" for 3 seasons.

She has appeared in numerous feature films including "Switch", "A League of Their Own", "Wyatt Earp", and "Bad Boys","Deep Impact", "Family Man" and her newest film "Jurassic Park 3 is probably her most notable work to date.

She married actor David Duchovny in May of 1997and they share a daughter, Madeline West Duchovny.
