LUCY LIU will soon be
seen starring as classy Alex Munday in Columbia Pictures' feature
"Charlie's Angels." This smart and sexy update of the popular '70s
television show features Drew Barrymore and Cameron Diaz as the other Angels and
is set for a fall release. Liu's recent film credits include her memorable role
as a dominatrix opposite Mel Gibson in last year's box office hit
"Payback" and her sassy staring role with Antonio Banderas and Woody
Harrelson in Touchstone Pictures' "Play It to the Bone."
On television, Liu continues to star as the litigious Ling Woo in the hit Fox
series "Ally McBeal." This immensely popular role has brought Liu a
great deal of industry recognition and fan support. She was recently nominated
for an Emmy Award as Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series and was
nominated for Best Actress in a Comedy Series in this year's SAG Awards.
Other lead television credits include her 1997 starring role with Rhea Perlman
and Malcolm McDowell in the CBS sitcom "Pearl," and her starring role
in Showtime's telefilm "Riot." Liu has also 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." Her national theater credits include
"M. Butterfly," "Redwood Curtain," and "Numb."
A native of New York, Liu attended NYU and later majored in Asian languages and
culture at the University of Michigan. During her senior year, she auditioned
for a student theater production of Andre Gregory's adaptation of "Alice in
Wonderland." Hoping to be cast in a supporting role, Liu was instead cast
as the lead. Her acting career was born.
Liu is also a skilled mixed-media artist whose work has been shown in major
exhibits on both coasts. Her work premiered at the Cast Iron Gallery in SoHo,
New York, in 1993. The exhibit led to an art grant from a corporation that sent
her to China, where she took photos that formed the basis of her successful
second exhibit, in Venice, California, in 1997.
