Fay Ann Lee


Fay Ann Lee began her career as a Broadway actress in MISS SAIGON, which led to principal roles in regional theaters across the country and internationally. Venturing into on-camera work, she landed recurring and guest/co-starring roles on soaps and primetime shows like THE EQUALIZER, NEW AMSTERDAM, NORA FROM QUEENS, FBI, LAW & ORDER, THIRD WATCH, ALL MY CHILDREN, and ONE LIFE TO LIVE just to name a few.  

As a filmmaker, Lee wrote, directed and starred in the Asian American romantic comedy, FALLING FOR GRACE (originally entitled East Broadway), which placed in several top screenwriting competitions in the U.S. including The Academy Nicholl Fellowships. Falling for Grace premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival and Logan Hill of NY Magazine called it a "sprightly Chinatown romantic comedy" and picked it as one of the two best films of the festival that year. FFG was licensed for television around the world, including on Showtime and Starz in North America. As the buzz around the film grew, so did the reputation of Lee's underdog success in the face of race and gender barriers in a male-dominated industry. As a result, Lee has been asked to share her story with local and national media, women's organizations as well as with some of the world's finest learning institutions: Harvard, Yale, Johns Hopkins, Wharton (U. of PA), Boston University, Columbia, UMASS Amherst, Arizona State University, Berkeley and even as far as Tsinghua University in Beijing.

Lee was a producer on the indie film, LOVE HUNTER, which the New York Times described as "one of the most refreshing New York independent features" and was chosen as one of its "Critics' Pick of the Week." She is also currently developing two other feature films which she wrote as well. Fay Ann Lee graduated from The Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania and is an avid tennis player and golfer. She sits on the board of New York Junior Tennis and Learning
