Taiwan model-actress Kelly Lin was voted "Asia's Sexiest Woman" by Malaysia's FHM magazine in 2002. Such a label might conjure images of an imposing, sultry and exotic Oriental beauty. But Kelly Lin is nothing like that. The affable actress is the poised epitome of cool confidence. She recently abandoned her sexy image to play the role of a rather foolish office secretary who utterly lacks fashion sense.
Kelly Lin starred alongside Mainland comedy king Ge You in a dark comedy film called "Gasp", which also stars Hollywood actor John Savage. Lin plays an office lady who is mad about the latest fashion trends. Yet, her look often misses the mark which generates many hilarious antics. The comic role is a departure from previous roles which often showed off her beauty, or depicted her as a woman of any man's dreams.
Lin was born in Taiwan in 1973. She moved to California in the US with her family at the age of 12. After graduating from the university, she decided to pursue a career in show business in Taiwan.
