Lucy Liu Bio

Lucy Alexis Liu was born and raised in Queens, New York City, New York. She is fluent in Mandarin Chinese and practices martial arts, including Kali-Eskrima-silat, which is knife and stick fighting. Lucy also plays the accordian. Liu was recently chosen by Entertainment Weekly as "one of the sexiest women on television." Her television credits include "ER" ( in the heartfelt story of a young mother whose baby son dies of AIDS), " High Incident," "NYPD Blue," "L.A. Law," THE X-FILES and "Pearl," on which she was a series regular. Her feature film work includes the soon-to-be-released films "Payback," co-starring Mel Gibson, and "True Crime," directed by Clint Eastwood.  Her favorite band is Evil Jake.

Lucy Alexis Liu graduated from Stuyvesant High School in 1986 (this is the most important point, as I also graduated from Stuy). Stuy is a specialized public high school; you take an SAT-like test to get in - the same test is used for Bronx Science and Brooklyn Technical high schools, although Stuy requires a higher score. One of my friend's older sister was in the same class as Lucy, and told me that she had big hair and wore black (like many of the girls at Stuy)... I'm working on getting some pictures of her back then, so stay tuned.... The second most important point about Lucy Liu is that she plays Ling on Ally McBeal.

Lucy graduated from the University of Michigan with a degree in Asian languages and cultures while also studying acting, dance and voice. In addition to acting, Lucy is a gifted artist. Her work first appeared at the Cast Iron Gallery in SoHo in 1993. She then received an art grant to study in China. Her exhibit of mixed-media photography -- pictures laid in the center of an original frame and intermixed with ceramics, paints, wood collages and papers -- chronicled her experiences there and debuted at a Venice, CA gallery in 1997.

Lucy is 5-foot-1.


Ling Woo / Lucy Liu Trivia

Lucy initially auditioned for the role of Nelle Porter, which went to Australian actress Portia de Rossi. But Ally McBeal producer David Kelley liked Liu so much he created a character for her. "There were six women there including myself, and I was the only woman of color," Liu said, recalling her audition. "And I thought, this is a joke, there's just no possible way I'm going to get this role." When Liu got the call that de Rossi had the part, she didn't put much credence in the casting person's claim that Kelley liked her and that he'd write a role for her. "People say stuff all the time, especially in Hollywood," Liu said. "You don't think it's actually going to happen. And it did. And it happened quickly." Kelley later told Liu he liked her reading but thought she was too frigid. He had plans to make Nelle warmer over time.

Lucy Liu Quotes

  • "I think it's going to be the hugest...the hugest. I mean, everyone in the world is going to go see it." Lucy Liu at a "Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace" preview (Entertainment Tonight, 5/7/99)

  • "It's more about the actors who are working this summer than the actual movies. I want to get a dose of Ewan McGregor, Sean Connery, Julia Roberts, and a lot of others." - Lucy in response to this question - What are you looking forward to this summer? (From the May 7, 1999 issue of Entertainment Weekly)

  • "I can't keep up with the madness. I need some madness pills to cope with it." - Lucy on her Ally McBeal success

  • Lucy on college: "I went to NYU for a year and I was so unhappy. Everything was dark and sarcastic. I was living the whole alternalife, going to Julian's Pool Hall on Fourteenth Street, hanging out. So I went to University of Michigan. The first day I got there I put these beautiful pictures of naked woman on the wall and my roommates comes in and I say, "I know this maybe looks like I'm a lesbian or sompin', but I'm not."

  • Lucy on Ling: "She's very confident but within that confidence she's, you know, somewhat of a child, I think. She's very blunt. She's very honest. But she doesn't beat around the bush; she doesn't have time for it. She's got to go shop, she's got things going on. She doesn't have time to mince words and protect other people's feelings. That's who she is and that's what makes her so interesting. I think I'm a really honest person and I like to be really blunt with things and life, but I'm a little gentler than she is. I like how aggressive she is. I like that she doesn't apologize for anything that she does."

NEW LUCY MOVIE!

Lucy has just finished up work on a new Movie called "Hotel".  It also stars Salma Hayek, Burt Reynolds, and David Schwimmer.  Most of the movie was filmed in Venice, Italy.  This is not a feature version of the 1980's TV show starring James Brolin (and there isn't one planned... yet).

  • Release Date: TBA 2001/2002

  • Not Based upon: This is not a feature version of the 1980's TV show starring James Brolin (and there isn't one planned... yet).

  • Running Time: 93 minutes (something not always known early in production, the time is set for this project because each of the four screens will be a complete 93 minute from one of four digital video cameras)

  • Distributor: Currently seeking distribution in the USA.

  • Production Company: Red Mullet Productions

  • Cast: Saffron Burrows, Salma Hayek, Rhys Ifans, Jason Isaacs, Lucy Liu, Burt Reynolds, Julian Sands, David Schwimmer, Max Beasley, Valentina Cervi, George DiCenzo, Valeria Golino, Danny Huston, Mia Maestro, Chiara Mastroianni, Ornella Muti, Stefania Rocca

  • Director: Mike Figgis (Leaving Las Vegas, Internal Affairs, One Night Code, Time Code, The Loss of Sexual Innocence; next will be By Grand Central Station I Sat Down and Wept)

  • Screenwriter: Mike Figgis (One Night Stand, Leaving Las Vegas, Time Code, Stormy Monday, The Loss of Sexual Innocence)

  • Premise: Like Time Code, this exp.erimental ensemble piece splits the screen between four simultaneous storylines: the filming of a "period movie", a documentary about the making of that movie, a murder plot, and a bizarre maid service. The four stories ultimately converge during the festivities of the Venice Carnival. (source: Variety, 2/21/01) A little more detail comes today (2/22/01) from The Hollywood Reporter. The "bizarre maid service" might have something to do with either a "mysterious surgical operation" or "a torture chamber in the hotel basement." (3/15/01) Note: some of the scenes will be of just one or two cameras, not always four like in Time Code.

  • Filming: Production started in early February, 2001 in Venice, Italy, at the Hungarian Palace Hotel, shooting on digital video. Production is scheduled to wrap on March 11th, 2001.

  • Genre: Comedy

Lucy Liu's Bizarre Sex Tale
Tuesday, September 14, 1999

from TVGuide Online

Ally McBeal beauty Lucy Liu claims she once had sex with a mysterious spirit that continues to follow her everywhere she goes.

"I was sleeping on my futon on the floor, and some sort of spirit came down from God knows where and made love to me," the sultry star tells Us. "It was sheer bliss. I felt everything. I climaxed. And then he floated away. It was almost like what might have happened to Mary. That's how it felt. Something came down and touched me, and now it watches over me."

Liu, 31, also tells the magazine that she is "fascinated" by flesh and once spent time eyeing naked women in a San Jose (CA) spa. "I'm sitting there gawking at these ladies, because they're all different sizes and ages, ranging from 30 to 80 or whatever, and I find myself looking at them like some freak. And men too. How does that thing stand like that? Why is that hanging like that? It's so weird. I just don't understand."

Liu's fascination with flesh includes her hopes to one day photograph her own private parts. "I would love to exp.eriment with that. I would love to have my legs spread open. I would love to see what it is."

Despite her openness, the single Liu insists that she's not interested in casual sex with her suitors. "I usually wait three or four months, because I think if somebody doesn't get to know you in a more intimate way than intercourse, forget about it, because they're never going to get to know you." — Rich Brown


Asian New Yorker, September 1993, p. 6 - "Unraveling" in Soho

Asian American actress Lucy Alexis Liu will make her debut this month -- in an art gallery in SoHo. On Saturday, September 11, Liu will open her first exhibition of photographs entitled "Unraveling" at the Cast iron Gallery on 159 Mercer Street, SoHo, New York. "Unraveling" is comprised of three main bodies of work: a series of hand-tinted photographs taken on the streets of Hong Kong; portraits of hands and feet; and a mixed-media selection from the Pro-choice Movement.

In Hong Kong, Liu had time to explore the streets and the people of Hong Kong while working on a movie. "I had the chance to view each subject and each piece differently -- how one captures a subject is how that individual looks at it." A Chinese American native of Queens who majored in Asian Languages in Culture at the University of Michigan, much of Liu's work is influenced by Asian art and history, with a mixture of American pop culture.

As an actress, Liu has worked with established Asian American organizations such as Pan Asian Repertory Theater and the East West Players, and has also starred in productions such as David Henry Hwang's "M. Butterfly." Liu describes herself as more of an artist than anything else. "Acting and photography are both very expressive," she said. "I don't consider myself so much as an artist or a photographer -- I'm more of an artist."

General, hands and feet (subjects of the second portion of "Unraveling"), are, in her view, "very sensual, very passionate -- there's something very expressive about hands and feet." She feels all of us "use our feet to maintain stability, as well as to root ourselves to the earth." We also use are hands, according to Liu, to express our deepest emotions, such as speaking and writing. Our hands are also the first parts of our bodies we use to feel, to touch.

"One's uniqueness and personal story can be revealed by one's hands," she added. "No pair of hands are the same, and each palm reveals a different story."

In the final portion of her exhibition, Liu attempts to tell her story behind the abortion issue. Liu admits to having a difficult time constructing such a piece, for which she used photos taken from recent pro-choice marches in Washington, D.C. to make a collaged multi-media piece. "Everyone has an opinion about abortion," she said. "I tried to incorporate all views." Liu hopes her artistic imagination, whether it be on stage, film, or behind the camera, will enable her to reach "beyond an Asian American perspective," and to eventually "exhibit work with no boundaries."


from TV Guide Online

"As if the dream world of Ally McBeal's Fish & Cage law offices hadn't filled its quota for eccentric characters, actress Lucy Liu's litigious Ling Woo is currently unleashing her crippling charm on the disturbed denizens of the Beantown unisex. A fresh face on Ally, Liu is a seasoned actress who's tackled tough storylines on TV's top dramas - ER, NYPD Blue, The X-Files - and she'll soon be seen cutting up the big screen as a daring dominatrix in Payback (opening Feb. 5), starring Mel Gibson. Listen to the lively Liu talk about her big break on the hit series, the media craze over her costar's constitution, her "twisted" new movie, joking with Gibson and the challenge of playing sexy in TVGEN's photo-packed audio interview and slide show. "


AOL Entertainment, Celebrities - That Litigious Ling: Ally McBeal's Lucy Liu, By Beth Halverson

"Online fans are all a-buzz about Ally McBeal's newest cast addition Lucy Liu, who plays the razor-edged, stunningly beautiful "Ling" (for God's sake, don't pronounce

it with a hard "g!"). "The show was good until Ling came along," raves one fan on AOL's Entertainment Asylum message board, "But now it's great. She completes the cast in a charming and funny way."

"That b**** Ling (don't you love her?)," writes another. Oh yes we do.

Ling is litigious by nature: a woman who lives to sue her enemies and deliver verbal tongue-lashings. "Do you have a point?" she'll bark at anyone in her way. A glare from her is always accompanied by a growl. Wicked Witch of The West music even fires up when she enters the room.

Her character is deliciously complex... a modern, complicated woman who for fun designs her own clothing line (featuring one very sexy Stewardess outfit), runs a mud wrestling club to exp.loit male chauvinist pigs, and sues her factory foreman for looking at her the wrong way. In one great scene earlier this season, she actually teaches "Fish" (Greg Germann) how to conduct the perfect first kiss... or else he's dog food in the boyfriend department.

A recent "Newsweek" article with the actress revealed that Liu feels her character is "not mean, she's misunderstood. I don't know what everybody's issue is with her." A Queens, New York native and University of Michigan graduate, Liu actually auditioned for the part of "Nell" (aptly filled by the lovely Portia de Rossi). Her acting credits include "Jerry Maguire" (a former girlfriend in the bachelor party video) and guest spots on everything from "NYPD Blue" to "The X-Files" (episode "Hell Money") to a stint as a waitress at the Peach Pit on "Beverly Hills 90210."

Liu is slated to star opposite Mel Gibson in the feature "Payback" and in Clint Eastwood's "True Crime". She also has a cameo in next June's "Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me."

Unlike Ling the shark, Liu is described by cast member Germann as "warm and self-effacing" She's also a die-hard adventurer. Rock-climbing, skiing, horseback riding and martial arts are all part of her repertoire. But like her character, Liu also delivers the unexp.ected: she's a serious accordion player who likes to jam on the set with Germann.

Word is that Ling has been signed on as a cast regular and Ally fans can't wait for the next episode. Watching someone steal the scene - and get away with it - has never been so fun.


E! Online, The Sizzlin' Sixteen '99 - http://aol.eonline.com/Hot/Features/Sizzlin99/Girls/liu3.html
There's more to the vivacious Lucy Liu than her scene-stealing work as the bitchy, litigious Ling Woo on Ally McBeal. And this year the world will find out just how much more she's hiding behind that sultry, saucy veneer. In February, Liu has what she describes as an "extreme" role in the Mel Gibson potboiler Payback. Then this summer, she shows up in the sleuth-spoof sequel Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me. What's her character? "You'll have to pay up and go see it," Liu says with a laugh. Plus, there's more in store for Liu on Ally McBeal--at least for a little while longer.

"I'm on Ally through May, and then we'll see what happens," she says. "It's really a smart show, and I'm loving every minute of it. That's important, because sometimes you think, For Chrissakes, why didn't I enjoy that more when I was doing it?"

Somehow, Liu also finds time for her other hobbies, including kick boxing, accordion playing and coffee-shop philosophizing. And then there's that side career as a mixed-media artist. Isn't all that tough with her schedule? "Not really," she says. "I don't have to exhibit in a gallery every three months to feel engaged. I don't put myself under the gun." It's just as well. With as much moving and shaking as Liu does, she'd be a hard target to hit. --Tom Johnson

Lucy in Rhythm of Destiny, by Alex
(I will get around to sorting this stuff when the new site goes up)

Plot of the movie: older brother is a streetwise criminal trying to go straight while helping and providing for his talented, cultured younger brother and widowed mother. Older brother does time in jail while younger brother becomes famous singer. Older brother is killed while protecting younger one from gangsters.

Lucy appears in this 1992 Hong Kong film as Aaron Kwok's girlfriend Donna. They are students at a performing arts school. She is a supporting character and her screen time amounts to less than 15 minutes. There is very little character development so the range of her acting is limited. She is credited as Lucy Alexis Liu. The film stars Danny Lee. Aaron Kwok, a dancer and singer before making movies, got second billing in this film.

Her first appearance is in the 24th minute of the movie: she is alone on stage rehearsing a dance routine as Kevin Lee (Aaron Kwok) watches from afar. Outside, he sees her walking with some friends and he rushes across campus to intercept her. When they cross paths he asks her if he can give her a ride home on his motorbike. She agrees but then his bike won't start. As he tries to fix it he doesn't realize that she has walked away. He stands up, turns to talk to her and when he doesn't see her he frantically looks every which way. Disappointed, he stands by his bike when she drives up in a red convertible and offers to drive him home. He accepts.

In the 37th minute, Kevin's older brother Bee tells him to speak into the pay phone receiver and it's Donna on the other end. Bee and his girlfriend Hung drive away while Kevin chats and then sings a song over the phone. It turns out that she is watching him from the second floor terrace of her home where she walks down and taps Kevin on the shoulder as he croons in the phone booth. She says his song and motorbike are nice, and he takes her for a ride to a recording studio. He is a contestant in the Regional Singing contest and auditions at the studio while she waits outside with other contestants.

In the 45th minute, Donna is in the audience applauding Kevin, a finalist, as he is introduced on the stage of the Regional Singing contest. Kevin's brother Bee tried to fix the contest and when Kevin doesn't win, Bee's friend "Superman" goes berserk and attacks one of the judges. The audience runs out of the auditorium. Bee and Kevin are arrested at home as their mother watches.

Almost an hour has elapsed when Donna appears next to Kevin at his mother's funeral. Later, they are sitting in his apartment where she offers him something to eat. She answers the door and it's a bank representative who informs Kevin that the apartment must be sold to pay off debts and he must move out by the end of the month. Another man appears and he persuades Kevin, as Donna nods her approval, to sign a contract with his music company. She accompanies Kevin to the recording studio where Peter Lai, his future manager, makes preparations for Kevin's first session. Donna stands in the background watching Kevin struggle during the recording, and later offers encouragement and a cup of water to him.

About 15 minutes later, Donna is applauding Kevin at his birthday party, organized by his manager who is preparing him for his first tour. Kevin invites Donna to join him at the Taiwan concert but she says she's been accepted at the New York Performing Art School and leaves next week. She tells him she need time to prepare and that she wants to be like him, able to choose what he wants to do. He says he understands.

That is the last time she appears in the film although shots of her are repeated in the closing credits.
