Born: July 15, 1961


Date of Birth: July 15, 1961

Born in Toronto to 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).

After six months of fiercely competitive auditioning, she made her flamboyant film debut 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. A wide variety of subsequent roles have allowed her to spread her wings and demonstrate her considerable abilities.

She is engaged to writer/director Ron Shelton.
