Amber Lin (a.k.a. Hoo Xun Lin) is a Singaporean Chinese female actor presently enrolled in the B.A. (Hons) Acting Programme at Drama Centre London. Before coming to the United Kingdom, she trained at LASALLE College of the Arts and graduated with a Diploma in Performance. Besides acting, she also worked as a director, a spoken word artiste, and a drama / performance poetry coach.
In Singapore, Amber’s acting credits span commercials, screen, and stage performances. One of her biggest achievements was in 2017, when she wrote and performed in a one woman headcanon show “Force of Choice”, based in the Star Wars universe. This was later re-staged in 2018 due to popular demand, at the Haque Centre of Acting & Creativity (HCAC) and the SOLO Festival at Lasalle.
Amber has accumulated a wide range of work experiences, from puppeteering and stunt work, to event and project management. Her involvement in Singapore’s literary scene includes published poems in local anthologies, as well as a position as Multimedia Editor for poetry.sg, an online archive for Singapore poetry.
To nobody’s surprise, Amber is a self-diagnosed workaholic, with a TikTok account dedicated to her love for anime. She believes in loudly standing up against discrimination, celebrating differences in cultural values, and that not everyone has to like chocolate. Her biggest vices are drinking red bull in the morning and being the only person in London who dislikes the sun.
