Mini Biography :

Lisa Ray was finishing high school in Canada with aspirations of majoring in Journalism at University when a celebrated fashion magazine approached her to model for them, and she ended up on the cover. This catapulted her into a state of instant celebrity. Her high-profile career got her noticed by Indian filmmakers, but she refused many offers until the offbeat _Kasoor (2000)_, which received a considerable amount of attention. Indian-Canadian director Deepa Mehta then cast her as the lead in the lighthearted romantic comedy Bollywood/Hollywood (2002), which went on to be a huge success in Canada. She also played the lead in Ball & Chain (2004), a romantic comedy, filmed in Austin, Texas. She subsequently moved to London to study acting and concentrate on a serious career in the performing arts. She recently graduated from the Academy of Live and Recorded Arts, was cast in Seeking Fear (2005), and reunited with Deepa Mehta in the critically lauded Water (2005).
