New Zealand born Chinese Actor Lisa Zhang made her screen debut as Jiayue on Inked TV series (2021) by Mingjian Cui, the first funded Chinese-bilingual show in Aotearoa.

She shortly followed with an appearance on 21st Century Studio thriller No Exit in 2021 and was accepted into the prestigious New Zealand acting school, The Actors Program, in 2022. 

In 2023, Lisa made her theatre debut, as Lily in How To Throw A Chinese Funeral by Jill Kwan, the winner of Playmarket’s Asian Ink in 2021 and Adam NZ Play Award finalist in 2022. The show was bilingual-Cantonese and ran a successful sold-out two week season.
