Alluring, extraordinary, and a natural talent are all ways that actress on the rise Lana Condor could be described. As one of the most up and coming talents in the entertainment industry today, Condor has already made a name for herself with her innate ability to bring characters to life on screen. In 2016 she will make her feature film debut in the highly anticipated, Twentieth Century Fox Film X-Men: Apocalypse [set to be released May 27, 2016]. Condor will star as ‘Jubilation Lee,’ AKA ‘Jubilee,’ alongside Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, and Rose Byrne. A sequel to X-Men: Days of Future Past, the newest installment will focus on the origin of the mutants and will complete a trilogy that began with X-Men: First Class . Originally from Can Tho in Vietnam, Condor was adopted by her parents at four months old [along with her brother, Arthur] and spent her early years of life in the Chicago area. By six years old the family had settled in Washington State, where Condor took her very first dance class. Her love of the arts flourished and she went on to dance at The Rock School of Dance Education and Spectrum Dance Theater in Seattle. At 13 years old Condor and her family moved to New York City and while there, she continued her classical ballet training, dancing at multiple prestigious dance academies including: The Joffrey School of Classical Ballet, The Gelsey Kirkland Academy of Classical Ballet, and The Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater. While living in New York, Condor’s parents encouraged her to give acting a chance seeing a natural ability in their daughter. She took her first acting class during her freshman year in high school and was hooked. Condor and her family moved to Los Angeles her sophomore year of high school, where she auditioned and landed a coveted spot in The Los Angeles Ballet. She was one of their youngest and most accomplished dancers. Although Condor was making a name for herself in the dance community, she was bit with the acting bug and couldn’t shake it. She joined the theater department at Notre Dame Academy and also studied at the Yale Summer Conservatory for Actors. During her senior year of high school, she went out on her very first handful of professional auditions and landed her role in X-Men: Apocalypse right out the gate. Condor lives in the Los Angeles area and loves all things involved with the outdoors: hiking, swimming, kayaking, and surfing. She also has a big place in her heart for charity work, and has volunteered at nursing and convalescent homes since she was in 8th grade, and is an avid supporter of the non-profit environmental group Heal The Bay, who work to restore the Santa Monica Bay.
