Elizabeth Berridge (born May 2, 1962) is an American film and theatre actress. She is best known for playing Constanze Mozart in the Academy Award-winning 1984 film Amadeus.

Life and career

Berridge was born in [1] The Berridge family settled in Larchmont, New York, where she attended Chatsworth Elementary School, there she began to perform and sing. Due to her acting commitments, she earned her diploma through an independent-study program at Mamaroneck High School.[2]

Berridge was called in to audition for the part of Constanze Mozart after filming had already commenced in Prague on Amadeus. The actress who had begun the role, Meg Tilly, injured her leg in a neighborhood soccer game and had to quit the project. Two actresses were flown to Prague, and after a week's auditions Berridge was given the part (supposedly because the other actress, Diane Franklin, was "too pretty" to play the part of an innkeeper's daughter).[3] Berridge (and the other cast members) remained in Prague for six months to complete the onsite filming.[4]

In 2001, she married actor Kevin Corrigan, whom she met on the set of an independent film, Broke Even. They have a daughter, Sadie Rose Corrigan.
