A native New Yorker, LUCY LIU attended NYU and later received a Bachelor of Science degree in Asian Languages and Cultures from the University of Michigan. During her senior year at Michigan, 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's blossoming film career was thrust into over-drive when she starred with Cameron Diaz and Drew Barrymore in Columbia Tri-Star's blockbuster hit, Charlie's Angels, and its sequel, Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle. Liu was also recently seen opposite Uma Thurman in Quentin Tarantino's critically acclaimed film for Miramax, Kill Bill: Volume I and in the second installment, Kill Bill: Volume II.

Liu recently completed production on 3 Needles, due out in 2005. Liu also recently completed work on Lucky Number Slevin opposite Josh Harnett and Ben Kingsley. The film deals with a case of mistaken identity that lands a man (Harnett) in the middle of a murder being plotted by one of New York City's biggest crime bosses. 

Lucy recently returned to the small screen on the NBC hit sitcom "Joey,” reuniting with Charlie's Angels ‘ co-star Matt LeBlanc. 

Liu's additional film credits include roles opposite Jackie Chan in Universal's hit comedy Shanghai Noon; opposite Mel Gibson in Payback; opposite Antonio Banderas and Woody Harrelson in Touchstone Pictures' Play it to the Bone; another role opposite Banderas in the action-thriller Ballistic: Ecks vs. Sever; and a cameo role in the Oscar-winning film, Chicago.

Liu is set to make her debut as a producer, having sold a pitch to Universal Pictures. She has also signed a deal to executive produce and star in a contemporary big-screen version of Charlie Chan for Twentieth Century Fox.

On television, Liu appeared as the unforgettable Ling Woo in the hit Fox series, "Ally McBeal," a role for which she scored an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series, as well as a Screen Actors Guild Award nomination for Best Actress in a Comedy Series. She guest-starred on HBO's "Sex & the City" and has lent her voice to such animated series as "The Simpsons," "Futurama" and "King of the Hill."
