  • Trivia & Quotes
  • Quotes (3)

    • Lee: I think there's more violence these days, especially in schools, and that worries me. Kids with guns is a scary concept. We tend to think "only in America", but it's happening in Australia too.

    • Lee: Fashion can be misleading. It can give out wrong messages to young girls who think that they have to be skinny to be beautiful. Men can suffer from this as well, thinking that they need to train too hard or neglect their body for bigger muscles. I believe that the fashion industry needs to cater for every demographic, not just one particular section of the population.

    • Lee: Other than cricket, my passion is music. So when told I'd be singing with a legend in India, I was glad.
