Profile Bio Text
Lisa Ray (born 4 April 1972, is an Canadian actress and former fashion model. She was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma on 23 June 2009 and started her first cycle of treatment on 2 July 2009. Lisa Ray was born in Toronto, Ontario, Canada to a Bengali Indian father and a Polish mother and grew up in the suburb of Etobicoke, Toronto. She excelled academically, doing five years of high school in four, while attending three different high schools: Etobicoke Collegiate Institute, Richview Collegiate Institute and Silverthorn Collegiate Institute. She spoke Polish to her maternal grandmother and watched movies of Federico Fellini and Satyajit Ray with her cinephile dad. Ray was spotted by an agent in a crowd during a family vacation in India when she was 16, when she began modeling.
A Times of India poll named her the "ninth most beautiful woman of the millennium", the only model in the top ten.
She first made her cinematic debut in 1994 in the Tamil film Nethaji opposite actor Sarath Kumar where she appeared in a brief role. It went unnoticed. After turning down a number of roles, she made her Bollywood debut with the film Kasoor in 2001 opposite Aftab Shivdasani where her voice was subsequently dubbed by Divya Dutta as she could not speak Hindi. Her work in that film caught the eye of Deepa Mehta who cast Ray in the romantic Indian-Canadian romp, Bollywood/Hollywood in 2002. In 2005, she worked again with Mehta in the Oscar-nominated film, Water where she did speak her own lines in Hindi although her voice was dubbed in the final cut of the film. Since then she has worked in productions from Canada, Europe and the United states. Recent roles include a farm girl in All Hat, a school teacher in A Stone`s Throw a housewife in 50`s apartheid South Africa in The World Unseen and a Christian-Arab lesbian in the humorously entitled "I Can`t Think Straight" directed by Shamim Sarif. In 2007, she completed filming for Kill Kill Faster Faster, which is a contemporary film noir inspired by the critically acclaimed novel of the same name by Joel Rose. She guest starred in USA Network series Psych, which was directed by Jay Chandrasekhar, which aired on 30 November 2009.
Lisa Ray lives with her longtime partner, fashion photographer Paolo Zambaldi. She was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma on 23 June 2009, a cancer of the white blood cells known as plasma cells, which produce antibodies. It is a rare and incurable disease.
