South Carolina native (by way of Barbados) and Dirrty Records Founder/Filmmaker Lunden De’Leon has been featured in many Movies, TV series, Music Videos and several popular Magazines including Marie Claire, Black Enterprise, Entrepreneur Magazine and has now made her way over to grace the pages of The INDIEgator  magazine. Lunden was certain she wanted to be part of the Music industry from the moment when she witnessed her father on stage as the lead singer in a Gospel Band. So the first chance she got, she packed her bags and headed to Hollywood with only $200 she saved up from her Burger King gig.  Uncertain of her future yet determined to overcome any challenges, including a brief stint of homelessness in L.A., De’Leon soon found a roommate that changed her life forever:

I tagged along to a Modeling audition with my roommate. I wasn’t interested in Modeling or Acting but when you’re hungry and penniless, you’ll try anything to put food on the table. I got the audition. That same day I was signed to a one year modeling contract.

That unexpected gig with Swimsuit Illustrated was only the beginning. European fans were introduced to Lunden as “Joanne Mbutu” on the hit German television series Vital Signs. Years later the budding Actress catapulted her breakout role into a successful career by performing unforgettable roles in over Fifty movies and television shows including 20th Century Fox Movie The Ladies Room, Surviving Paradise, Fury, Faux-Pas, Cryptz, the HBO award-winning film Kickin’ Chicken and the NBC hit comedy Just Shoot Me.
