An American actress of English, Chinese, and native Hawaiian descent. She'd long been interested in singing and dancing, but also took up martial arts when her brother enrolled her in some classes. She even got interested in modeling since her cousin was one.

She took up various jobs, including modeling and drama, before she became the first Asian-American [[BeautyContest Miss Teen USA]] in 1985. After her "reign" was over, she took up modeling again, and then moved to Los Angeles to take up acting.

Her first role was a guest star as Mike's girlfriend on ''Series/GrowingPains''. She got small roles in several other shows, and a role as Jason's victim in ''Film/FridayThe13thPartVIIIJasonTakesManhattan'', along with a number of other small film roles.

She then took up pageants again, becoming [[BeautyContest Miss Hawaii]] in 1993, and coming in just short of the final three in the subsequent Miss USA pageant.

Then she went back to acting, getting roles in ''Series/NashBridges'' and ''Series/MartialLaw''. She then broke into films with ''Film/TheScorpionKing'', getting more film roles, TV roles, and even voice acting roles. And she's also into politics, in terms of getting other Asian-Americans to participate.

Recently, there's been a trend that if there's a need for a DragonLady in a comicbook adaptation, odds are that she'll be playing her.
