Renee Lim is an Australian actress, television presenter and medical doctor best known for her starring role as junior plain clothes Detective Jung Lim in the crime drama television series East West 101, from 2007-2011.
Renee is from Western Australia. An Australian, whose parents immigrated from Malaysia in the 70's, Renee grew up in Perth and after completing her high school education, moved to Sydney to undertake Medicine at Sydney University.
Now a doctor, as well as an actress, Renee combines two careers by working as a locum in Emergency and Palliative Care around acting commitments. Just like her character Jung Lim, Renee has a love of forensic medicine.
Her acting career spans film, theatre and television. "Over the years I have seen a change in the kind of characters I have been asked to play. From the classic, non English speaking immigrant, to characters who are not defined by race."
