Diane Chen


Diane’s first foray into the industry came in the form of a TV commercial for TCBY. After running at the camera over, and over, and over, and over again, smile plastered on their face and fake ice cream cone in hand, they knew they never wanted to do anything else.

Which is why they entered their freshman year at Dartmouth College planning to be a pediatric surgeon.

Diane (they/them) is a NYC based multidisciplinary filmmaker, theater artist, actor, and co-founder of Multihyphenate Productions. Their theater work focuses on devised movement explorations and subverting the expected. Their award-winning series “Here We Wait” has been making its international festival circuit, garnering 31 nominations so far, including a win as Best Supporting Actress at Brooklyn Webfest and a Best Lead Actress Drama nomination at the IAWTV Awards. They are a co-star on HBO’s High Maintenance. In all their work, they strive for striking visuals and stylistic movement and framing, and to share the stories of the othered and underrepresented, with an awareness of intersectionality and representation.
