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 at this year's SAG Awards.

A native of New York, Liu attended NYU and later majored in Asian Languages and Culture at the University of Michigan.

Liu is also a skilled mixed media artist whose work has been shown in major exhibits on both coasts. Her work first premiered at the Cast Iron Gallery in New York City 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.
