Carmen Pat is a British-born Chinese actor who has acted in both English and Cantonese.

Although ‘diversity’ is a key word at the moment we are yet to see a substantial growth in East Asian representation in the UK and Carmen hopes to be the representation that is lacking today.

Carmen starred as the lead in Meet the Lees directed and written by Brenda Lee which is a British family comedy that follows a British East Asian girl’s battle between her dream and family traditions.

She starred in Goodbye Mr. Vampire, a Chinese online movie showcasing on iQIYI – one of the largest online video platforms in China, which led her to study screen acting in Hong Kong and aided her to improve her Cantonese speaking and reading proficiency.
