Stephanie Hsu is the next “It” girl in Hollywood for five reasons: the EEAAO rising star will next be seen with Michelle Yeoh in the Disney+ series American Born Chinese and the comedy flick Joy Ride

Stephanie Hsu, a multitalented powerhouse performer (Hollywood) with roots in both Chinese and Taiwanese families, was born in California and has gained recognition for her roles as both protagonist Joy Wang and villain Jobu Tupaki in the film Everything Everywhere All at Once from last year, which recently took home seven Oscars.

The 32-year-old actress, who starred with industry heavyweights like the stunning Michelle Yeoh and Jamie Lee Curtis, dominated scene after scene in an impressive wardrobe designed by the renowned Shirley Kurata, which included her memorable Bagel Universe outfit. Despite losing to co-star Curtis, Hsu’s performance earned her her first-ever Oscar nomination. Nevertheless, it’s clear that this proudly Asian performer is just now beginning to showcase her talents to the world.

These are five ways Stephanie Hsu is making “Slaysian” seem good, and we like her for it.

Her early professional breaks were on Broadway, where she played Christine Canigula in Be More Chill and Karen the Computer in SpongeBob SquarePants: The Broadway Musical. Clearly, all that formal training paid off.

She refuses to conform to preconceptions about Asians.

Hsu has experienced racial prejudices and typecasting throughout her career, much like many other actresses of color. Her remedy? Reject any positions involving these kinds of problems.

When I went for a commercial audition in 2012, I recall that they said, “Okay, could you do it again, but with a more Asian accent?” I apologized, but this job is not for me, I added. Hsu told The New York Times earlier this year, “I don’t do that and I’m not interested in this part.”

She speaks up for Asian Americans using her position ” Hollywood “

Fans instantly grew to love Hsu’s unique and endearing depiction of a Chinatown resident and medical student; she continues to appear on the Amazon series as a recurrent character. Applause for Asian representation, please!

Her impeccable sense of style

Since EEAAO had nominations for almost every award in the film business, Hsu was a given to walk the red carpet. However, none anticipated that she would dominate the show as she strutted, slayed, and sashayed her way through an astounding array of jaw-dropping dresses, from Thai Nguyen and vintage Valentino to opulent designers Carolina Herrera and Giambattista Valli. It makes sense that Hsu is regarded as one of the next Hollywood stars with the greatest wardrobes.
