Lee Speaks Out: ‘Transgender’ And ‘Rent Boy’

20140423-091913.jpg

If you know me, you maybe surprised that I am involved in this project. Why? I’m a Martial artist and actor who is usually in Action films. I’m portraying two sex workers in’Whore’. One is a ‘Rent Boy’ who has sex with men for money, and the other is ‘Transgender’ who loves sex with men. The characters (I find) are very interesting and EXCITING. My research and preparation for these two fine, well written characters involve finding my raw, dark and sexual side. Thank goodness we have the internet to explore this subject matter. I usually say ‘no’ to these kind of roles but hey: This is directed and written by Melissa Fergusson. She’s a good director and tremendous writer who can bring out the raw truth in front of you. I love that. I won’t give you too many details of my preparation, but I am still learning how to walk in high heels. It’s tricky. My research tells me about the adversity Transgender’s go through and how sex workers are heavily judged in society, “its easy to judge a book by its cover”? This play will be unforgettable.
