UFC 190 Live Coverage and Updates: Ronda Rousey vs. Bethe Correia

Elizabeth A. Davis

It's not surprising to learn that Davis once competed in beauty pageants. She knows how to wield her lithe body as well as she wields a fiddle, playing the brash, whiskey-and-soap-opera-loving Czech immigrant Reza in "Once." The musical has given the Texas-born actress the chance to show off her fourfold talent: belting songs, dancing the tango, jumping on bars and playing the violin like a gypsy. Davis had never done a professional musical before "Once" and admits she was terrified at the prospect. Despite her fears, she earned a Tony nomination for featured actress in a musical. Joan Marcus
