Yi Ming Liu

BFA Acting

Yi Ming (she/her) is in her final year as a UBC BFA Acting student. Her recent devised work include, The Yoko Ono Cult at What Lab’s ExP and Naked Cinema X. She also appeared in UBC’s productions of Concord Floral (Arthi Chandra), The Wolves (Leora Morris) and The (Un)usual Suspects (Susan Bertoia). She will appear in UBC’s upcoming production of Saint Joan of the Stockyards (Jacob Zimmer).

What was one of the highlights of your UBC experience?

There are too many highlights to count, from Commedia to Shakespeare to training like a soccer team for The Wolves and all the long hours in the studio but the one common factor is the raddest, baddest flock of people I get to work with every day to share these moments with.

What kind of creative work do you see yourself doing in the next few years?

Aside from my goals of working as an actor in both theatre and film as well as animation, I’m drawn towards the creation process of writing and devising works. An ambition of mine is to synthesize my disciplines in visual arts with acting and theatre-making to create unique multimedia performance experiences.

What is your dream role?

My current *pipe* dream role is Hamlet.

What are some of your special skills?

I can chirp so well, you might think I was raised by birds.

Who would you most like to have dinner with?

Whoever built the pyramids maybe.
