Eva Maria LaRue is an American model and actress who is notable for her roles in All My Children and CSI: Miami.


LaRue was born in Long Beach, California to Marcie and Luis LaRuy, of French, Puerto Rican, Dutch, and Scottish descent. She has three siblings, sisters Nika and Lara and a brother, Luis Jr; and is also a member of the Bahá'í Faith. She began acting when she was six years old and later became a teenage beauty queen. She won the Danfranc Productions Miss California Empire 1984 title at the state pageant, which was held in Irvine, California. In 1985, she graduated from Norco High School, starting a modeling career soon afterward. She was signed on by the Judith Fontaine Agency as a model, eventually becoming a model for Frederick's of Hollywood.

From 1993 to 1997, and then again from 2002 to 2005, LaRue portrayed Dr. Maria Santos Grey on the TV soap opera All My Children, for which she received a Daytime Emmy Award nomination in the category of "Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series". Additionally, in 2004, she received a nomination in the category of "Outstanding Original Song" for composing the song "Dance Again with You". In 2010, LaRue temporarily reprised the role on January 5 for the fortieth anniversary of All My Children. LaRue also performed in made-for-TV movies over the years, appearing as Annette Funicello in a biographical movie of the former Mouseketeer and also in the adaptation of Danielle Steel's Remembrance as Princess Serena. In 2005, LaRue portrayed Linda Lorenzo on the TV sitcom George Lopez, and then took on the role of Natalia Boa Vista on the CBS procedural drama CSI: Miami, becoming a full-time cast member by the time of the show's fifth season. LaRue and her daughter recently starred in a music video for the song "Armed" by Bahá'í recording artist, Devon Gundry. In July and September of 2011, LaRue once again reprised her role as Dr. Maria Santos Grey on All My Children as a guest star, when the show wrapped up its network run on ABC.

LaRue's sister Nika was one of the women photographed by convicted murderer and suspected serial killer William Richard Bradford for his collection of photos of women. She was the third of 54 women on the poster released by the Los Angeles Police Department to find living victims. The incident was later used as the basis of a CSI: Miami episode. LaRue later revealed that when she was six months pregnant with her daughter Kaya, she was supposed to fly in one of the planes that hit the World Trade Center on the September 11 attacks, but she decided to change her flight the night before so she could sleep in. She gave birth to her daughter Kaya McKenna Callahan on December 6, 2001. From 1992 to 1994, she was married to actor John O'Hurley, later divorcing him and then marrying All My Children costar John Callahan, with whom she had Kaya. LaRue divorced Callahan as well and is now presently married to Joe Cappuccio.
