Aimee Butler HeadShot 2013Often compared to Lucy Liu in looks, Aimee is a budding and unique actor, model and Irish dancer in her own right. Although adopted, she’s a heady, exotic mix of Taiwanese and Australian, proud of her family’s Celtic heritage. Other than graduating from Adelaide Centre for the Arts and University of Adelaide, she has challenged herself in exemplary, award-winning Irish dancing skills and learnt basic sword play, thus fusing both Western and Eastern worlds with perfect synergy.

Across TV, film and theatre credits, Aimee has been described to have a stylistic, moody, comical, primal and gamine-like presence. On the animation short film “Pigs in Zen” director Michael Ouyang has described her as ‘professional and very creatively involved... Punctual, prepared, anticipating production needs and always willing to spend the time to work with the other actors, finding new expressive ideas... exploring far more than the film could allow... a terrific creative collaborator.’

Aimiee’s soprano voice also brought her renown in the early days of her career. Making her professional musical theatre debut as a child in “The King & I”, she went on to win scholarships with Australian Girls Choir and Concordia College.  She flourished in various musicals such as “Man of La Mancha”, “The Sound of Music”, “Oklahoma”, “Guys & Dolls”, “Chess (South Australian Premiere)” and “Victor / Victoria (Australian Premiere)”. In 2016, Aimee sang as a soloist in "An Evening of Frank Sinatra (Wrest Point)", starring Matthew Ives and his Big Band and John X as Frank Sinatra.  

Aimee has modeled for some of the world’s leading international photographers: Todd Anthony Tyler, Timon Wherli, Susanne Junker, Cassidy Photography, Sammy Esquillon and Matjaž Tančič. She has modeled in Australia, Hong Kong, Macau, Philippines and Mainland China, utilising her attention-grabbing brand profile.

In a life-defining moment and a dream come true, Aimee was recognised as an Irish Australian Rose of Tralee in 2001 – one of Ireland’s highest honours for females of Irish ancestry. Sonya Perkins (The World of Hibernia) was moved by her ‘spectacular singing voice that wouldn’t sound out of place, on a Broadway stage’. Her name was later etched onto the Rose Wall of Honour in Tralee Park, Co. Kerry, Ireland in 2013.

This award-winning Rose of Tralee and Irish dancer is currently a Soprano with the Baghdad Singers in Tasmania, and was featured in RACT’s “Get Right Royal Service” health insurance TVC (2014-2015).
