Blake Abbie was one of the six Asians/Asian Americans who joined Dorothy Wang for the spinoff Bling Empire: New York in 2023. Being the only gender-fluid cast, identifying as queer, he instantly caught the viewers’ attention.

Blake Abbie was born to his parents, June Wong Abbie and Robert Abbie. They welcomed him on October 30, 1990, in Montreal, Canada, and raised him in Vancouver.

He was also cast for the role of “Thomas” in the Chinese version of Meteor Garden, a popular TV franchise. The Netflix/Hunan TV coproduction garnered five billion views in the two months of release just in China alone.
