KEYE CHEN as Goldie
Keye is fortunate to have grown up in sunny Southern California after his first 5 years of living in Illinois - where they bring the illest noise - and Washington - where they...have...rain. Following his prestigious high school diploma, Keye was content and quite satisfied in his SoCal bubble, so he opted to attend UCLA (Go Bruins!) where he played with the UCLA marching band. Concurrent with making music, Keye started dancing to it – not just with the band, but with a hip hop team on campus. 4 years of tearing up the dance floor and an excessive amount of booty shaking (still an ongoing activity) later came a crucial summer that included many a can of Coors Light and watching a lot of Entourage. Needless to say, it was at this point he decided to audition for a theater company as well as a sketch group, Spring Sing Company, that keeps 5,500 laughing at Spring Sing, one of UCLA's biggest events of the year. With a Psychobiology degree in hand, Keye took the next most logical step: pursuing a career in acting. However, he has returned to UCLA to achieve a Master's degree in Environmental Health Sciences in order to keep his left and right brains balanced. Spending most of his time on XBOX Live, Keye hopes to somehow, someday, and for some reason be interviewed by Ryan Seacrest. Here are a couple of random links for you to test your mouse-clicking skills. and
