Claudia Lee was born Claudia Lee Mirkowski June 20, 1996 in West Lafayette, Indiana, the second child of a Polish-American immigrant father and an American-born mother. As a little girl watching TV, she dreamed of being an actress, and loved performing around the house. She began studying dance before her 3rd birthday, learning ballet, tap and jazz. Growing up listening to her father and his relatives speak Polish, she decided that she, too, wanted to learn the language, so her parents sent her to a private school in Poznan, Poland for one month each summer, for the next five years. Lee is now conversational in her father's native language.
When she was 13, Claudia studied acting and filmmaking at the School of Cinema and Performing Arts (now called the School of Creative and Performing Arts) summer camp in Vermont. Where she met Harry Abrams, president of the Abrams Artists Agency. The agency offered to represent Lee, and she and her mother moved to Los Angeles in the summer of 2009, only with the notion of staying for pilot season. After arriving in Hollywood, Lee began taking acting classes and working immediately.
Lee's first professional acting job was in a national TV commercial for "Comcast", with Zachary Levi. Next came Lee's recurring role of "Bridget" on the Disney XD series, Zeke and Luther (2009). More recently, she was cast in the recurring role of "Magnolia Breeland", the younger sister of "Lemon Breeland" (Jaime King) on the CW series, Hart of Dixie (2011).
Lee is also a country music singer. She recorded her first song, "It Gets Better", with Max Di Carlo which was inspired by the "It Gets Better" campaign against bullying in schools.
After completing "It Gets Better", Lee and recorded a country music album, which was released in early in 2012. The first single, "Hollywood Sunset", was released in September of 2011.
She is represented by Paradigm for acting and singing. She is also represented by Joanne Horowitz Management. 0
