Let’s first telescope back to the days right before the February 13, 2014 accident that changed everything. At that time, South Carolina native Liza Dye (pictured) was just like so many others in New York City, doggedly pursuing her dreams.
“Despite being homeless, my career was going really well,” she tells FishbowlNY from Greenville, where she continues to recuperate. “I’d just come off a Saturday Night Live audition which landed me an amazing manager. I experienced my first pilot season and then I got hit by a train.”
“But one thing that I made sure of was to never stop writing,” she continues. “I kept a notebook in my [Bellevue] hospital bed and wrote every day. Some stuff was jokes and some wasn’t. I just made sure that I was writing. And I’m still writing. Now, I’m writing a pilot for a TV show about my life and I’m also writing a book. I should note that no money has come from either of those things [yet].”
