Multi-talented Taiwanese-Texan actress, voice over artist and performer, Gloria Tsai, is making moves and creating waves! After building her resume and becoming SAG eligible in Texas and Florida within the last 4 years, she is rapidly on her way to reaching her acting goals.
Gloria caught the acting bug when she was cast as the lead in a class play when she was 8 years old. Although there were hardly any Asian women role models for her at that time, she secretly wanted to be a "triple threat" - actress, dancer and singer. She continued studying theater and acting throughout high school until other school activities took precedence. In early 2015, she made the bold decision to leave a corporate career and pursue her childhood dreams.
