Birth Place: Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

Australian fashion model Abbey Lee rose to the top of her profession in the mid-2000s, but left the industry less than a decade later for playing otherworldly figures in high-profile features like "Mad Max: Fury Road" (2015) and "Gods of Egypt" (2016). She was born Abbey Lee Kershaw in Melbourne, Australia on June 12, 1987, to professional football player Kim Kershaw and his wife, Kerry, a psychologist. Health issues plagued her childhood, including bouts of meningitis, but she bloomed in her teenage years, after moving to Sydney to pursue a career in modeling. Lee was discovered by Chic Management's Kathy Ward in 2005, and remained with the agency until moving to Next Management and relocating to New York City in 2007. Once in the States, Lee became a staple of Fashion Weeks in New York and Milan, as well as a familiar face on the covers and in the pages of V, Australian Vogue and other publications. She also modeled for a number of major companies, including Victoria's Secret, Chanel and Gucci, all of which contributed to her coronation as the latest "supermodel" by V in 2011. The following year, Lee scaled back her modeling career to focus on acting, which began in earnest with a supporting role as one of the fleeing wives of post-apocalyptic dictator Immortan Joe in "Mad Max: Fury Road" (2015). A more sedate turn as the fiancée of an incorrigible drinker in "Ruben Guthrie" (2015) followed, but she was soon back in spectacle mode with a minor appearance in "Gods of Egypt" (2016) and a supporting role as a predatory model in Nicolas Winding-Refn's "The Neon Demon" (2016). That same year, Lee was announced as the female lead in the Ron Howard-produced "Dark Tower," based on the novel of the same name by Stephen King.
