Shortly after receiving her BA in Theatre from Stephen F. Austin State University, Mai Le moved to Houston in the summer of 2013. Since then, she’s been seen around the local entertainment scene in theatre productions and readings, film festivals, commercials, and web ads, and she has been featured in the Houston Press’ article: “Houston’s Up and Coming Actors 2019: Razzle, Dazzle and a Whole Lot More.”
She was the host for Space Center Houston’s Explorer Camp TV, a show dedicated to science and space exploration learning, as well as a former writer and actor for Comedy Hub Houston’s sketch comedy group, The Astronutz. She is a voice actor for Sentai Filmworks. Her first feature film, Acid Test, is currently in post-production.
Most recently, she was in a Zoom performance of Sensitive Guys with Stages Repertory Theatre. In the wake of Covid-19, live performances were cancelled. The production was available for streaming for two weeks mid-August. Viewings were offered in conjunction with a “making of” documentary that explores the challenges in transferring the production to a virtual medium, which remains up on YouTube.
Her next project is with Rec Room’s Sound Scripts Project a 9-part audio series of works-in-progress from Texas writers, brought to you on-demand as interactive digital portfolios and podcasts. She will be heard in Sunrise Coven, written by Brendan Bourque-Sheil and directed by Leslie Swackhammer. The play will be streaming October 22 – 26.
Even though she’s not a native, she loves Houston and can say that, like many Houstonians, she’s held awkward eye contact with James Harden way too many times – including 2 separate restaurants, and then in one Adidas commercial – in case anyone was asking. She is signed with Pastorini Bosby Talent Agency.
