Eliza Dushku is ready to slay those wedding plans! The actress—best known for her roles in Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Tru Calling, and Dollhouse—announced her engagement to businessman Peter Palandjian via Instagram on Thursday, June 15.
“YES!! Absolutely, my love. #BostonBorn #BostonBred #BostonSoonToBeWed,” the future bride, 36, captioned the image of she and her future husband, 53. The beaming pair look positively ecstatic in the candid snap.
The two prefer to keep their romance private. Dushku posted a rare photo of her beau in a group shot last December. Palandjian, a former pro tennis player and Harvard graduate, is the proud father of four and CEO of Intercontinental Real Estate Corp.

Dushku is currently pursuing a degree in sociology at Suffolk University in Boston and stars in the 2017 thriller Eloise. The bride-to-be has completely revamped her life since battling alcohol and drug addiction.
“I’m a good person, but when I did drugs and I drank, I didn’t make good decisions,” she said during a speech at a youth summit on opioid awareness in March. “All it takes is one bad decision. You don’t have to live like that.”
She added: “I’m a real badass and tough girl. It was the hardest thing in the world for me to ask for help and it was the most powerful thing I’ve ever done.”
