Meet Actress, Model and Performer Christine Lee
I just moved to LA and am interested in building my acting/modeling career here. My main focus has been circus performing over the past 14 years and I want to continue performing/acting at the same time- finding gigs where I get to perform and act are the holy grail!
What/who inspires you?
So many people inspire me, people who follow their heart and passion without following the norm is what gets me most excited.
I performed with a circus troupe for two years in Turks in Caicos in the Caribbean, it’s such a beautiful and magical place and I loved living there. For career and passion, LA is perfect and I’m so excited I moved here during quarantine.
I wanted to be a vet because I love animals, my “dream job” would have been to be the first Asian Britney Spears- I always saw Caucasian pop stars and wanted Asian American representation. Too bad I can’t sing, so going down the acting/modeling route is just a perfect outlet for this.
How long have you been modeling?
I did my first commercial 10 years ago, and I’ve been more seriously going down this route for 3 years. Most of my modeling has been circus specific but I’ve also been doing print ads for roles like “young mom”, “yoga instructor”, etc.
What is your focus/genre?
Circus is my main focus and genre but I feel that I have a lot of range in my look. I’ve done commercials where I’ve been a cheerleader, sorority girl, pregnant CEO, tech worker, girlfriend, young mom, astronaut, stunts person, etc.
My greatest accomplishment was taking the leap of faith to follow my passion 12 years ago. I was working at Microsoft in NYC 14 years ago and followed a very corporate route, what I realized is that life is short and I want to do what I’m most excited about- which was training, performing and teaching in the circus.
Funniest Situation you’ve ever been in?
I was in Times Square in NYC and a family came up running up to in tears saying they’ve been loving my TV show and I had no idea what they were talking about, eventually I realized they thought I was Brenda Song from the Disney Channel so I gave a hug and a kiss to the kids and walked away before they could get any photos, but have a really positive memory and feeling about their NYC experience.
I think my approach to acting/modeling is unique in that I never set out to be an actress or model, in fact I thought it would never be a reality. I started by being a circus performer and artist and was asked to do a commercial for Honda to do acrobatics, and this is what opened doors for me. This is when I realized that I have more range as a performer and had so much fun doing it.
