L A U
Is an actor and magician based in NYC.
Drawn to acting as a kid, Lau performed in school plays and comedy sketches, but the thought of doing it professionally seemed like a pipe dream. So she studied languages instead (French and Chinese) thinking she’d end up as a translator like her father...But acting never left her. And as the years went by, the urge to become one only grew stronger until finally, on the brink of going to graduate school, she decided to drop everything and pursue it.
Lau is a graduate of the Terry Knickerbocker Studio two-year Meisner conservatory program. Some of Lau’s previous teachers and mentors include Terry Knickerbocker (acting coach to Sam Rockwell, Zac Efron, Emmy Rossum, and Boyd Holbrook), Jim Calder (Master teacher and Head of Movement at NYU Tisch Graduate Acting), and Devin Shacket (Founder and Artistic Director of the New York Drama Center, and casting director of House of Cards: Season 2, alongside Emmy Award winning casting director, Julie Schubert).
When not acting, you can find Lau performing magic around New York City!
