As one of the few Asian-American actors to have had a recurring role in a daytime drama, Wang broke down barriers, having appeared in over 70 episodes of the Emmy-winning drama, “The Bold and the Beautiful”.

Wang grew up in Los Angeles, where she discovered her love of performing at an early age competing in Chinese Speech competitions. Consequently, Wang began acting class at the Harvard-Westlake School, where she attended Middle and High School. She went on to attend Brown University, where she starred in numerous classical and contemporary plays such as “Romeo & Juliet”, “Richard III”, and “Rosencrantz & Guildenstern are Dead”, while earning a BA in Comparative Literature. After graduation, Wang moved back to Los Angeles and joined Asian-American theatre group, HereandNow, where she played the lead role in Neil LaBute’s play, “The Shape of Things”.
Wang is proud to play a role in breaking racial barriers in film and television. Through her work as an actress, writer and producer, her goal is to showcase Asian-American stories, particularly about strong female characters, as nuanced and as complex as they truly are. Now fully based in Los Angeles, Wang enjoys spending her free time doing yoga and exploring fun food experiences in the City of Angels and beyond.
