Biography

Regally attractive Asian-American character actor of stage, film, and TV. The only child of two performers, Long's father was an actor-tap dancer of Chinese-Scottish extraction and her mother was a Japanese-American showgirl. She made her stage debut at age seven and later toured with her father in "Flower Drum Song." Long's numerous NY and regional theater credits have included several non-traditional roles for Asian actresses including Ophelia in "Hamlet," Billie Dawn in "Born Yesterday," Cherie in "Bus Stop," and Helena in "A Midsummer Night's Dream." In 1988, she toured the USA, Europe, and Australia in David Henry Hwang's "1000 Airplanes on the Roof," a one-woman multimedia monologue with music by Phillip Glass.
