How Shimooka Became An Actress?

Sea Shimooka was in a drama class during high school, but until then, she was not serious about acting. Instead, she joined drama to be around her friends. She was an accomplished athlete and played competitive volleyball.

However, after discovering that her height (5′ 9″) was not enough to land her in the professional volleyball route, she chose to study fashion. After applying to every liberal arts or communications program in New York and Los Angeles, she was accepted to New York University.

On her orientation day, she saw the Tisch Drama assembly next to hers. It prompted her to realize how much she loves acting (from watching Broadway shows to being passionate about the camera). So, she approached one of the Tisch administrators and asked for the transfer.

Eventually, the NYU Tisch School of the Arts accepted her, which forged a path to her acting career.

Career Journey: Movies and TV Shows

At some point in her life, Sea worked as a waitress at abcV, a vegetarian restaurant in New York. After graduating with a BFA in Drama from New York University, she auditioned for many projects for over a year and a half while working on short films and stage productions.

One day, her manager emailed her about the role of a half-Japanese and half-Caucasian girl in The CW series Arrow. So, she auditioned for the role but didn’t get a response for three weeks. The showrunners had forgotten about her, and later, after rewatching her tape, they recalled.

After the third call, she got the role of Emiko Adachi/Emiko Queen/Green Arrow.

It followed her works in several TV series and short films before she landed another notable role as Sophon in 3 Body Problem, starring Jovan Adepo, Liam Cunningham, Eiza González, and Benedict Wong, to name a few.
