TV beauty ELIZA DUSHKU has found an unconventional way to unwind at the end of a long day at work – she’s taking chess lessons in a nightclub.
The 28-year-old actress picked up the hobby while in Los Angeles shooting new TV show Dollhouse. And she’s learning her chess moves from a family member who happens to be a grandmaster and a Hollywood club boss.
The former Buffy The Vampire Slayer star reveals, “We work 14, 16 hour days. I don’t really like to go out and party, but I like to be around people.
And my godfather has a nightclub in Hollywood and he’s a chess grandmaster; so I go there after work and he teaches me how to play to chess in his office.”
