Diane Finucane sent the Ear an article from the Asian Reporter about Tenzin Chokyi Gyatso, pictured right, who grew up in Warrenton, but since 1991 has been living in Fairfax, Va. After graduating with a degree in international business from George Washington University in 1996, she joined Chevy Chase Bank.

Always interested in acting, Gyatso took a break from banking when she won the role of Karma in the Tibetan film "Dreaming Lhasa."

Now back at the bank, she's been bitten by the acting bug, and hopes for more roles.
