About Michele Lean

To find out what I'm currently up to, follow me on twitter:


Michele Lean is a television host for CCTV International, the English channel on the CCTV network. She divides her time between three programs, Travelogue, Center Stage and Culture Express.

Born in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and raised in Hong Kong and Melbourne, Australia, she started her career as a commercial talent, model and actor in Melbourne, while juggling her studies in Media and Communications at the University of Melbourne.

She has interned for CNN (Hong Kong), The Herald Sun (Australia), TBWA-ISC (Malaysia) and The Sun newspaper (Malaysia), amongst others. While she initially dreamt of being a writer and news anchor, it was her passion for performing that won out and lead her to the TV screens. Michele's nomadic nature drew her to China, a place she expected nothing from and in return gained so much from, both personally and professionally.

Michele is not an in-borne performer and at most times prefers to observe than command attention but it is her love for the art of performance that drives her out of her shell and into the spotlight. Like most actors, she is an extrovert and introvert and while she likes her privacy, she finds her place is on a film set and TV studio.

In October 2008, she will take time off to further her acting skills at the New York Film Academy and looks forward to gracing the silver and TV screens in the near future.
