"Not only do I not want to be stereotyped as this Asian girl who fights - gee, what a wonder - but also I have more to offer than that."
Maggie Q on typecasting

Margaret Denise Quigley (known to the most of us as Maggie Q, born May 22, 1979 in Honolulu, Hawaii) is an American (of Irish, Polish and Vietnamese descent, via Hawaii) actress and former model. After being scouted by Jackie Chan, she starred in lesser-known films such as Naked Weapon and Rice Rhapsody before going on to roles in Mission: Impossible III and Balls of Fury. She starred in the popular CW Television Network series Nikita from 2010 to 2013, and has starred in the ABC series Designated Survivor since 2016.

She is probably perhaps known for playing a female spy/action hero/Action Girl in a lot of her roles, and usually doing her own stunts while she's at it.
