Women On The Move is happy to have a chance to sit down with the FABULOUS Elise Neal! Although she may not have achieved her youthful dream of becoming a Solid Gold dancer, some might argue that it was more a matter of overshooting that dream rather than failing to achieve it. Elise Neal still loves to dance, even appearing on Star Search before working professionally as a dancer, though she is more likely to be recognized for her frequent work in television and film. A popular teenager, Neal was voted Homecoming Queen, and after high school moved to New York to pursue a career as a dancer. Finding frequent work in musical theater that eventually led to small roles in commercials, Neal soon began to realize her affection for appearing on camera. After moving to L.A. to chase her new found dreams of becoming a full-time actress, Neal made an appearance on Law & Order before her screen debut in Spike Lee's Malcolm X (1992). Appearing frequently in television for the next few years with recurring roles in such series as SeaQuest DSV and Tales of the City, Neal later appeared in John Singleton's Rosewood and Money Talks (both 1997) before making a memorable appearance in Scream 2. Moving seamlessly between roles in television and film, Neal moved into sitcom territory with The Hughleys before returning to the screen in 2000 with Mission to Mars. Ms. Neal appeared in the popular movie, Hustle & Flow along with Terrance Howard in 2005.After nearly two years of legal wrangling, Elise Neal 's latest film "Love Ranch" will finally be released on June 30th. The movie tells the true life story of Grace and Charlie Bontempo, the husband and wife team who opened the first legal Brothel in Nevada. Elise plays one of the "ladies of the night" and is joined by actresses Bai Ling, Gina Gershon and Helen Mirren, who stars as Grace Bontempo.
