Her only screen role was in Dr. No and it was a matter of chance; the production crew of Dr. No encountered her at Kingston airport as they were preparing for filming. LeWars was an employee there at the time and they decided to use her in the film. She was first offered the role of Miss Taro but she was reluctant because of the sexual theme involved. She was then offered the small role of Anabe Chung. In the commentary of the Dr. No DVD release, LeWars reveals that makeup was applied to her face to make her appear partly oriental. She also states that her voice in the film was dubbed over by the filmmakers without her prior knowledge. She was invited to London to dub but declined. She is also seen in the documentary Inside Dr. No as herself.


She worked at British West Indian Airlines and Lufthansa. She helped with the start of Air Jamaica. She started her own Human resource training company, MK Careers, when she was 30. She is a regular columnist on etiquette in the Trinidad Express. She has written two books.
