PLAY IT TO THE BONE
LUCY LIU (Lia) will soon be seen starring as the classy Alex Munday in Columbia Pictures' feature "Charlie's Angels," a smart and sexy update of the popular '70s television show. Directed by McG, the film is scheduled for release in November 2000. For television, Liu continues her role as the litigious Ling Woo in
the hit Fox television series "Ally McBeal," for which she was recently nominated for an Emmy Award as Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series.
In 1997, Liu starred with Rhea Perlman and Malcolm McDowell in the CBS sitcom "Pearl." She has had recurring roles on "ER," "High Incident" and "Coach," and made guest appearances on "NYPD Blue," "L.A. Law," "Michael Hayes," and "The X-Files." She also starred in Showtime's telefilm "Riot." This past spring, Liu had a memorable starring role as a dominatrix opposite Mel Gibson in the box office hit "Payback." Next summer she will be seen opposite Jackie Chan as a kidnapped princess in "Shanghai Noon."
Liu's theatre credits include "M. Butterfly," "Redwood Curtain" and "Numb." She is a member of the Met Theatre Development Ensemble.
A native of Queens, New York, Liu attended NYU and later majored in Asian Languages and Cultures at the University of Michigan. During her senior year, she auditioned for a production of Andre Gregor's adaptation of "Alice in Wonderland" hoping to be cast in a supporting role. Instead, she was cast as the lead and a careeer was born.
Liu is also a skilled artist. Her work first premiered at the Cast Iron Gallery in Soho in 1993. That exhibit led to an art grant from a corporation that sent her to China. In 1997, she had a very successful second exhibit in Venice, California.
