The school is a full-time professional conservatory for actors, which began operations in 1915. It is known for being the birthplace of the Meisner technique of acting, the focus of which is to help the actor get out of his/her head so that he/she can behave instinctively to the surrounding environment. Numerous exercises for the technique involve repetition, to help bring out more of the underlying emotion.

Following the completion of her education, Synder started working on television, appearing as a guest in several television shows including “The Trials of Rosie O’Neill” and “Murder, She Wrote” – the latter is a crime drama series which is considered to be one of the most successful and longest running shows in history, winning numerous awards over its many years on air. In 1993, she was cast in her first leading role by the ABC as a part of the crime drama “Sirens”.

Hiatus and Latter Career
Liza then got her big screen debut as she was cast in a secondary role in the film “Pay It Forward”, loosely based on the novel of the same name written by Catherine Ryan Hyde. It follows the story of a 12 year-old boy who starts a goodwill movement; the film got mixed reviews. After her work there, she became the star of the CBS sitcom entitled “Yes, Dear”, playing Christina Hughes, appearing in the sitcom alongside Anthony Clark, Jean Louisa Kelly and Mike O’Malley.
After the show’s end in 2006, she took a long five year break from acting, returning in 2011 to become a guest in an episode of “House”, in which she played a patient who’s in need of a lung transplant. She then reprised her role as Christina Hughes in an episode of “Raising Hope” which aired two years later.
