Biography

After struggling to find his footing following a sporadic string of guest appearances, actor Rex Lee was finally propelled to stardom as the abused, but resilient assistant Lloyd Lee on the popular cable comedy, "Entourage" (2004-2011). Debuting on the show in its second season, the openly gay Lloyd became an instant fan favorite thanks to his enduring patience in the face of racial and sexual epithets hurled by his venomous boss, Ari Gold (Jeremy Piven). Infusing his character with enduring level-headedness, infinite optimism and an insatiable desire to become an agent, Lee delivered one stand-out performance after another and opened the doors for bigger opportunities. He spent six years on "Entourage," which finally came to an end in 2011, leading Lee to make his way to network television and co-starring on the popular family-oriented comedy, "Suburgatory" (ABC, 2011- ). Though he struggled for the better part of a decade in guest roles, go-nowhere jobs and obscure stage work, Lee was finally elevated to the star status he deserved.

Lee on anti-gay discrimination in the acting world: "I can't be too upset about that. For me, what is most important is being honest with the world and myself. This is who I am, world. Take it or leave it. If you want to leave it, that's fine." – from Emmy magazine, Issue No. 3, 2012
