Lien says her childhood was rough because she was uncomfortable living in the place where she lived (the South side of Chicago). It was a very industrial place and she saw her friend going into drugs and dying because of it but she managed to adjust there. Lien used to be a tomboy in her early childhood and used to hang out with guys.

She had roles in Shakespeare’s “The Tempest” and “Othello” before moving on to more contemporary dramatic and musical theatre. Lien did industrial films and some theatre. And then she started to be hired by the directors and was called to New York.

Even Jennifer is heard to be arrested for the exposure in front of her children which was seen by her neighbor where she was lifting her shirt up and dragging down her pants and when her neighbor claimed that she used vulgar words on her. But later she got arrested.
