Kiran Rai, who goes by the name of KayRay, is an actor, filmmaker, and model. She is also a trailblazer and inspiration for young Punjabi women everywhere who aspire to tell their stories through the arts. Raised in the heart of Brampton, KayRay noticed early on the lack of “brown” females in the industry, and set about changing the rules herself! She took up modelling to get herself comfortable in front of the camera, then quickly moved behind it; graduating from Seneca College in Media Production gave her the tools to start making her her own movies. After further intense training at the Toronto Film School for Acting in Film, KayRay was ready to do what she’d always wanted: become an actor and filmmaker. YouTube provided the perfect platform for her videos and short films, and in no time she’d built her brand and was traveling the world showcasing her work and highlighting opportunities for women in the industry. KayRay is currently wrapping Season Two of “Anarkali” before starting Season 3; on her way to releasing more short films and videos; and working on her first feature film. As if all this isn’t enough, KayRay was also recently announced brand ambassador for well-known Canadian designer Mani Jassal!
