Born in Taipei, Lin is a famous Taiwanese actress and model. She became quite popular for her fragile looks and gentle demeanour, which was also the reason why she was coined as one of the freshest face of Taiwan. Ever since, Lin was a serious student, and she earned a degree in fine arts. Although she wanted to obtain an employment position at the Fine Arts Museum in Taipei, she was turned down because of her lack in a postgraduate degree in this field. Thus, Lin decided to pursue a modelling career, and soon became one of the most recognized actresses in China.
