For all you 90s kids out there craving a bit of nostalgia, get ready for a reboot that is sure to leave you smiling. For all of you who grew up watching 'Doogie Howser M.D.', it's now time to tune in to 'Doogie Kamealoha, M D'! The series follows the life of Lee Lahela 'Doogie' Kamealoha, a child prodigy who goes on to become a doctor while still a teen. However, life is far from easy as she juggles work and tries to live a normal life.
Who is Peyton Elizabeth Lee?
Peyton Elizabeth Lee is an American actress. She was born on May 22, 2004, in New York City. She later moved to Manhattan Beach, California and began her acting career at the age of 10. She is the daughter of Andrew Tinpo Lee, an actor and Jennifer Dormer Lee, a psychologist.
Her big break came when she was cast in the lead role of Disney's 'Andi Mack'. 'Andi Mack' executive producer Terri Minsky said that Lee stood out from the rest and she "liked that Lee did not look as if she had fallen off a child-star assembly line." It was though the role itself was made for Lee, as Minsky explained. "Andi as a character only existed as words on a page, and I wasn't sure at all what she looked or sounded like until Peyton walked into the room. Looking at her, you really believe that Andi is this 13-year-old girl who's just now coming into her own," she said in a conversation with HuffPost. She even explained that Lee handled all the sides of her character perfectly.
With regard to her role in 'Doogie Kamealoha M D', Lee explained that her character is a rather complex one. "Having a female at the center of the show is sort of as modern as it gets," she said, while 'On The Red Carpet'. "She has these Meredith-Grey-brilliant-doctor aspects to her and then she's also a teenager." Lee added.
Her works include 'Secret Society of Second Born Royals', 'Stumptown', 'The Lion Guard', 'Disney Channel Stars: Legendary', 'Asher Angel: Getaway', 'Shameless' and 'Scandal'.
