Suzanne Lanza is a model who made a move to acting later on. :-)
Acting was actually her first endeavor. Her acting teacher referred her to the Wilhelmina modeling agency, and she began her modeling career there. Ms. Lanza worked through several other agencies, and she also lived in Paris for awhile. :-)
But a career as an actress remained her major goal. She got herself a couple of roles in movies in the nineties, most notably The Night We Never Met and Strays.
Suzanne Lanza turns fifty in March 2015.
