The Career Highlights Of Paula T. Lin

At The Definitive Voice and Act, my professional voice talent developed naturally from years of hard work, enthusiasm, and persistence. My career achievements have always been something I am extremely proud of. I have grown personally and professionally and am thrilled to continue on with my work both through creative consulting and acting in New York and beyond.



"I am shooting and casting a new short film in CT, and I would like to audition you for one of the roles. You have a great look and voice, so rare and important in casting for film."
- Keith Bearden


I am honored to be discovered by multiple-award-winning writer/director Keith Bearden
to play the role of "Connie" in "No Costume? No Candy!"

On-Air Experience

After gaining experience in voice acting, I expanded my talents to on-camera reporting and acting roles. The bulk of my on-air experience has been to use my vocal skills for radio and TV, mostly newscasts. I am a multi-award-winning broadcast journalist. My voice has been aired globally, nationally, and locally.

Often, I reflect on my experience at CNN radio division and Headline News to be an amazing, unforgettable adventure. I was able to participate in highlights, such as the Persian Gulf War, the Centennial Olympics bombing in Atlanta, and the O.J. Simpson debacle in Los Angeles.

I am an actor at the Yale Medical School Learning Center, and have been officially and professionally inducted into the IMDb as a film actor. I played the role of Genevieve in the CNN series, The Hunt with John Walsh, and performed as a Reading Terms Instructor in a Pearson Educational Video.


 
You can also spot me in the latest Mark Ronson music video as Cat Woman. The featured song in this video is
"I Can't Lose".

I played the role of Cheryl Shaw in the upcoming comedy movie MINT ON CARD, being filmed in Connecticut. Enjoy MINT ON CARD's movie trailer.


MINT ON CARD MOVIE PREMIERE NIGHT! MY MOTION PICTURE DEBUT! HERE'S WHAT TOP BRASS HAD TO SAY:  Paula T. Lin was recently cast in the independent motion picture, Mint On Card where she portrayed Cheryl Shaw, a witty bowling enthusiast who demands that her bowling shoes be fresh smelling and ultra clean. Director, Mark Foley, described Paula’s performance as, “Completely standout to the point where she may have delivered my favorite scene shot at Laurel Lanes.” Mint On Card’s Executive Producer, Aaron Vnuk, added, “The role was originally supposed to be played by a male actor, but when Paula auditioned for us in January we knew we had to rewrite the role for her. She is a gifted actress and is one we will cast in future projects."
