With an award-winning music career and a couple of extra pounds under her belt, Karen Lyu has decided to become a female, Korean-American Robin Williams. Karen goes crazy over colorful comedic character roles, such as Charlotte, in Cinderella (2013): roles with funny faces and memorable mouths! Karen has studied with actor-trainers such as T'Keyah Crystal Keymah, Rebecca Lynne, and Alan Dysert. Now with her dynamo acting coach, she's got her sights set on comedic television character roles.
