Elisabeth Röhm is a German-American actress and writer.
Elisabeth is the daughter of Lisa Ames Loverde-Meyer, a scriptwriter, and Eberhard Röhm, a corporate lawyer. Her father is German and her mother is American, of three quarters Italian and one quarter British Isles (Irish, English, Scottish) descent.
In her book The Object of My Conception: A Journey to Motherhood through IVF, Elisabeth wrote:
Lisa Loverde-Meyer was what you would call a bona fide “hippie chick.” She was also a rebel, a truth teller, a spiritual seeker, and my best friend. She had eyes even bluer than mine, under long eyelashes, and a space in between her two front teeth, which my daughter inherited. She was Italian and looked it, with long brown hair and olive skin.
Elisabeth is a first cousin, once removed, of wrestler and actor Hulk Hogan, and a second cousin of his daughter, singer Brooke Hogan. Elisabeth’s maternal great-grandparents, Peter Bollea and Edith Medora Noonan, were also Hulk’s paternal grandparents and Brooke’s paternal great-grandparents.
Elisabeth’s maternal grandfather was Charles Jules “Chuck” Loverde (the son of Edward Loverde and Cinthia “Minnie”). Charles was born in New York, to Italian parents.
Elisabeth’s maternal grandmother was Carolina “Carlye” Bollea (the daughter of Peter Bollea and Edith Medora Noonan). Peter was born in Cigliano, Vercelli, Piemonte, Italy, the son of Pietro Bollea. Edith was born in New York, the daughter of Frank P. Noonan and Helena Frances Arvin, and had Irish, English, and Scottish ancestry.
