Born on July 7, 1970, in Queens, New York, Robia LaMorte was taking dance instruction before she was ten years old.

Interesting Facts

#Fact
1Robia appeared on the Trinity Broadcasting Network, where she announced that she has retired from acting and is focusing on full-time Christian ministry and counseling. [April 2006]
2Appeared in an informercial for the Voom HD television service. [February 2005]
3She spends much of her time attending fan conventions, as well as ministering and preaching the Gospel. She's still very active in the entertainment business, frequently appearing in television commercials. [October 2004]
4Following the death of her character Jenny Calendar on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Robia returned for two more episodes to play other characters manifesting themselves as Jenny. The first time was in season 2's closer, "Becoming, Pt. 2", when Drusilla assumed the form of Jenny to trick Giles into revealing critical information. Then in season 3's "Amends" (aka "A Buffy Christmas), The First Evil takes the form of Jenny as well as some of Angel's other victims to trick Angel into murdering Buffy.
5Grew up Roman Catholic and spent much of her early adulthood as part of the New Age Movement, but during the summer of 1997 (the hiatus between the first and second seasons of Buffy the Vampire Slayer), she became a born-again Christian following several life events that included an encounter with Christian bikers on a California freeway.
6When Robia was asked back to do season 3's "Amends", she agreed before reading the script. She was unaware that as The First Evil, she'd be playing a character that would essentially be Satan by another name. As a devout Christian, she was very uncomfortable with doing this, and though she honored her contract, feels it is far from her best performance. Even still, she has noted publicly that she was still open to appearing in future episodes on the show, but was never approached.
7LaMorte means 'The Dead One' in the female form of the noun, as in 'the dead woman'.
8Studied dance and traveled around the world with Prince
9She studied at the LA School for the Performing Arts and the Dupree Dance Academy. She began dancing at the tender age of 12. She became a professional dancer at 16 and appeared in her first music video Shake Your Love for artist Deborah Gibson. She was paired with dancer Lori Werner and they became known as Diamond & Pearl - dancers for Prince. She and Lori Werner also appeared on the cover of Princes' "Diamonds & Pearls" album.


Quotes

#Quote
1I started working professionally at 16 and was blessed to have a great career. I was traveling around the world and working with amazing people when I was far too young to really appreciate it! Working with Prince was the icing on the cake. I realized that I had achieved most of what there was to achieve as a dancer and wanted to leave dance at the top of my game. Acting seemed like the next logical step.
2(Regarding her best known role as Jenny Calendar on Buffy the Vampire Slayer): Jenny is such a great role! It's wonderful to play a character who is smart, sexy and funny. Really good writing is so rare and Buffy just gets it all right. It's the kind of role I've dreamed of since I started my career.
