Bio

Constance Wu is an American actress best known for her starring role as Jessica Huang, the wife of Louis and the mother of Eddie, Emery and Evan, in the television sitcom Fresh Off the Boat.

Wu was born and raised in Richmond, Virginia where she grew up performing in the local community theatre scene. At 16, she moved to New York to study at the famed Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute and she's been busy ever since.

While in New York, she worked in classical theatre and quickly transitioned to film work. She soon appeared in several Sundance Feature Films including Stephanie Daley and Year of the Fish.

In 2010, she moved to Los Angeles where her theatre and film background helped land her a role in another Sundance Feature, The Sound of My Voice.

In 2014, she was cast as Jessica Huang in the ABC comedy series, Fresh Off the Boat, which premiered in 2015. Based on Eddie Huang's memoir, it is set in the 1990s and revolves around a Chinese family that moves to suburban Orlando.

She enjoys long-distance running, camping, piano, and reading.
