The daughter of an English father and a Burmese mother, Me Me Lai was born in Burma in 1952. Little is known about her childhood. She moved to England in her teens and began working as an actress, appearing in bit parts on television and in low-budget British films, most notably in Au Pair Girls (1972). In 1972 she appeared in Paese del sesso selvaggio, Il (1972), the first of several "cannibal" movies filmed in Italy. After that role she returned to England, where she became the hostess of the popular game show "The Golden Shot" (1967).She returned as the lead female native girl in Ruggero Deodato's Ultimo mondo cannibale (1977) and Umberto Lenzi's _Mangiati vivi (1980)_ (her death scene in the former was re-used in the latter). Of her small movie roles, she is perhaps best known as a Chinese hooker in the Peter Sellers comedy Revenge of the Pink Panther (1978). During the 1980s she was again cast in various small roles before she left the movie business, and she has not been heard from since.
