KUNG FU PANDA

A native New Yorker, LUCY LIU (Viper) 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 overdrive 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's career was further solidified when she starred opposite Uma Thurman in Quentin Tarantino's critically acclaimed film for Miramax, "Kill Bill: Volume I.” Her recent film credits include "Code Name: The Cleaner” opposite Cedric the Entertainer; "Rise” opposite Michael Chiklis; "Watching the Detectives” opposite Cillian Murphy; "Domino” opposite Keira Knightley; and "Lucky Number Slevin” opposite Josh Hartnett and Bruce Willis. In a smaller release, Liu was also seen in "3 Needles,” a critically acclaimed three-paneled look at the worldwide AIDS crisis. Additionally, her film credits include "Shanghai Noon” opposite Jackie Chan, "Payback,” opposite Mel Gibson, "Play It to the Bone,” opposite Woody Harrelson, and "Ballistic: Eck vs. Sever” opposite Antonio Banderas, as well as a cameo role in the Oscar®-winning film "Chicago.” She will next be seen in the film "The Year of Getting to Know Us” opposite Sharon Stone and Jimmy Fallon, which premiered at the 2008 Sundance Film Festival.

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 and the City,” as well as on "Joey,” and has lent her voice to such animated series as "The Simpsons,” "Futurama” and "King of the Hill.” Liu recently appeared as Grace Chin on the award-winning series "Ugly Betty.” She stars as Mia Mason in the ABC drama "Cashmere Mafia,” created by Darren Star.

Liu recently made her debut as producer with "Freedom's Fury,” a documentary on the 1956 Olympic semifinal water polo match between Hungary and Russia. Held in Australia, the match occurred as Russian forces were in Budapest, stomping out a popular revolt. She has also signed a deal to executive-produce and star in a contemporary big-screen version of "Charlie Chan” for Twentieth Century Fox.

In 2005, Liu was appointed as UNICEF Ambassador. Her devoted work with UNICEF has taken her to the North West Frontier Province of Pakistan to visit with survivors of the October 8, 2005 earthquake. To witness the impact of HIV/AIDS on children and communities, Liu traveled to Lesotho in August of 2005. Recently, she returned from a trip to the Democratic Republic of Congo to witness firsthand the plight of young children in a politically torn country.
