About Lucy Liu
Lucy Liu is an American actress, director, voice actress, producer, and singer. An attractive and brilliant actress, she provides as an inspiration to many Asian actors who pursue to make it big in Hollywood. Following a string of early arrivals in some popular series, she achieved fame when she enlisted the cast of the legal comedy series ‘Ally McBeal’ where she performed the malicious ‘Ling Woo.’ The actress converted her sudden popularity into big-screen appearances in films, such as ‘Shanghai Noon’ and ‘Charlie’s Angels.’ She then distributed an outstanding work as Japanese crime lord ‘O-Ren Ishii’ in Quentin Tarantino’s ‘Kill Bill, Volume 1.’
Around the same time, she also performed lead appearances in some box office failures, such as ‘Rise: Blood Hunter.’ She then started voicing prominent roles in animated films, such as ‘Kung Fu Panda’ and ‘Tinker Bell.’ Small screen characters, such as ‘Mia Mason’ in ‘Cashmere Mafia’ failed to contribute results. A recurring appearance in the critically acclaimed police drama series ‘Southland’ helped re-establish herself as a prominent actress. Liu chooses her roles with utmost care so as to bypass being typecast in an ambitious industry. Though she has grasped her roots, she has not allowed it to limit her as an artist.

Liu was born to migrants in Queens, New York, Lucy Liu has always struggled to balance an interest in her cultural heritage with a desire to move beyond a rigorously Asian-American experience.

Once consigned to “ethnic” parts, the energetic actress is finally earning her stripes as an across-the-board leading lady.
Liu graduated from Stuyvesant High School in 1986 and joined at New York University. She was depressed by the “dark and sarcastic” atmosphere of NYU, however, she moved to the University of Michigan after her freshman year. She graduated from UM with a degree in Asian Languages and Cultures, managing to crunch in some additional training in dance, voice, fine arts, and acting.
During her senior year, Liu auditioned for a little part in a production of Alice in Wonderland and trekked away with the lead. She was encouraged by the experience, she decided to take the dive into professional acting. She moved to Los Angeles and rift her time between auditions and food service day jobs, eventually scoring a guest presence as a waitress on Beverly Hills, 90210 (1990).
