Big Break in Hollywood for Alice Lee

Actress Alice Lee is used to being in the background, working on Hollywood sets as an extra.

Now she’s in her biggest role yet as Monica in the new ABC summer series Take Two.

She told ABC7 her character stands out in the world of television.

I mean, she’s very quirky,” said Lee. “I just haven’t played someone that quirky, her humor is very dry, and so it’s very different. Her outfits are loud, she has a lot of personality, but then when she’s actually doing human connection she’s kinda awkward.”

She’s most recently appeared on Hulu’s Gap Year and Amazon’s Electric Dreams. You might also remember her as a contestant on ABC’s Rising Star where she placed in the top 13.

Her opportunity is a unique one for Asian Americans on television.
 
“I’m very grateful. You never feel like a role model, you never feel that, but I mean, for sure, hopefully you see more Asian people on screen, it gives hope to all the other Asian kids,” laughed Lee.

 
Take Two airs Thursday nights at 10 pm/9 central.
