Lee Chesley is a fearless stuntwoman who has doubled for Awkwafina, and showcased her gravity defying skills in the Avatar films, Birds of Prey, and Jumanji: the Next Level.

While this feels like a natural transition from her breakdancing days, it's impressive to think that Lee is also an actress, computer programmer, and the list goes on. What’s incredible is that Lee doesn’t just dabble in these feats, she is an absolute master at them.

Tune in to find out what it was like for Lee to grow up as an adoptee in a strict Mormon LDS family, and why when she finally returned to Korea, she felt like a foreigner in her own country. We connect on the power of using criticism as fuel, as well as the importance of always rising to the occasion.
