A fun and fabulous chameleon actor
Lué McWilliams is known for her chameleon performances that people have come to expect and enjoy. Lué creates characters people want to watch and listen to and people in the industry also want to work with Lué because of her professionalism. To put it in perspective, some quotes below:
From Richard LeMay, Writer /Director talking about her starring role in his Feature FilmNaked As We Came:
Lué McWilliams is an actress I’d seen at a reading of another screenplay - and immediately wanted to work with her. I remember everyone in the room saying, “Who is she? She’s great." Lué is one of the hardest-working and open actors I have had the pleasure of working with. Every scene was a joy to shoot because you really got to see her character blossom right in front of your eyes. Lué brings an honesty to the role which is what I believe audiences have been connecting to. The film won 5 awards, 3 being audience based and I have heard hundreds of people raving about Lué's performance and I always just nod my head in agreement. She deserves it and I will most definitely work with Lué again. -Richard LeMay
Another quote from Writer/Director Jon Spano talking about her performance in his play.
Dear Lue: Thanks so much for reading Sally last night. She's a complex character with lots of range, and I thought you found and varied all her different components so beautifully. She was tender, warm, sexy, manipulative, scared, funny, motherly..... and you brought that to life! You have no idea how much I appreciate your performance and your time, so thank you, thank you, thank you! - Jon Spano
Born in Philadelphia, PA, Lué’s family moved to a little town in Connecticut when she was three. The youngest of four children, she grew up loving to create and stage plays with her neighborhood friends. With her father, a CEO and President of a hospital and her mother a nurse and home-maker, becoming an actor wasn't something they wanted their daughter to pursue. They preferred her to have a stable life of a teacher or nurse or lawyer..., but not as an actor. She never gave up though and finally, took the leap of faith and moved to New York City around 2000. She hasn't stopped working.
