HUSTLERS

CONSTANCE WU (Destiny) will be seen in her starring role as 'Jessica Huang' in season six of ABC's comedy series "Fresh off the Boat." The critically acclaimed series is loosely based off of the life of chef Eddie Huang. For this role, Constance was nominated for a Critics' Choice Television Award in the category of "Best Actress in a Comedy Series" and was honored as part of the TIME 100 Most Influential People of 2017. "Fresh Off the Boat" also made Hollywood history as the first American Network TV show to center an Asian American family in over 20 years. As of this year, it will also mark another milestone as the first AsianAmerican led TV show ever to reach syndication.

Last year, Constance starred in Warner Brother's romantic comedy hit, Crazy Rich Asians, directed by Jon M. Chu. For this role, Constance received a Golden Globe nomination in the category of "Best Actress in a Motion Picture in a Musical or Comedy" and a Critics Choice nomination in the category of "Best Actress in a Comedy." The film itself received many accolades including a Golden Globe nomination in the category of "Best Motion Picture in a Musical or Comedy," SAG Award nomination in the category of "Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture" and Critics' Choice Award nomination in the categories of "Best Acting Ensemble" and "Best Comedy," coupled with box office success which made it the most successful studio romantic comedy in nearly a decade. Crazy Rich Asians also made Hollywood history as the first studio movie in over 25 years to star an Asian American woman.

Crazy Rich Asians and "Fresh Off the Boat" finds Constance in the unique position of being the sole actor to star in and lead both breakthrough projects for Asian American representation in Hollywood.

Additional film credits include Eric Darnell's Crow: The Legend, Jenee LaMarque's The Feels, Christopher Leone's Parallels, Zal Batmanglij's Sound of My Voice, Matt Tauber's The Architect, and Hilary Brougher's Stephanie Daley.

Constance holds a BFA in Acting from SUNY Purchase's prestigious Conservatory of Theatre Arts and Film where she trained in classical theatre.
