Toy Lei is a native New Yorker who is a California transplant. She’s had a fascination with action movies since her parents took her to Chinatown to watch kung fu movies and her in-depth participation in THE HURRICANE FIST (which was an homage to that genre) debuted at Comic-con. She has been seen in episodic television such as PARENTHOOD, HAPPY ENDINGS and WEIRD LONERS. ROAD WARS is one of the several independent features, shorts and web series you can also find her in. Her directorial, writing and producing debut, THE WEDDING, won her the Top 5 Women Filmmakers award from the Asian-American Film Lab and New York Women in Film and Television. Director: Toy Lei What most people don’t know is that while TOY LEI is in front of the camera a lot, she also has several credits as action director and fight choreographer including The Hurricane Fist, a 2009 Comic-con Film Festival Selection. Her directorial debut, The Wedding, won her the Top 5 Women Filmmakers award from the Asian-American Film Lab and New York Women in Film and Television. Her latest, BOXER, won not only Best Actress, but also Best Action and the big enchilada, the Grand Prize at the 2015 AAFilmlab Shootout. Writer: Toy Lei TOY LEI began writing because of the lack of roles in Hollywood for Asian females over 30. She has had a fascination with action films ever since her parents took her to Chinatown as a kid to watch straight-from-the-motherland kung fu movies every Saturday afternoon. And now, she spends her days dreaming up guns, blood and all kinds of ass-kicking for mature, smart, sexy women. When she’s not making movies, you can find her slinging her swords, snowboarding or playing punk rock versions of Motown tunes.
