But besides starring in the show, she has displayed her acting talent in the ABC series Fresh Off the Boat as Jessica Huang and is undeniably the breakout star of the show. Her tenacity and diligence at what she is passionate about is the exact reason she keeps winning in the industry.

Constance Wu’s Biography (Age)
Constance Wu was born on March 22, 1982. Her parents were originally from Taiwan but later settled in the United States. The Taiwanese American star spent her childhood days alongside her three sisters in Richmond Virginia where she was born. In that very city, her dad worked as a biology and genetics professor at Virginia Commonwealth University while her mom was a computer programmer. The dynamic actress is well schooled having attended Douglas S. Freeman High School. During her time in high school, she joined a six-month program at the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute and at the same time started performing in local theatre.
She went to college after graduation from high school and majored in psycholinguistics, the study of relations that exist between linguistic factors and psychological aspects. She went on to make her way into the State University of New York at Purchase’s Conservatory of Theatre Arts. In 2005, she graduated from the school and was awarded a bachelor of fine arts in acting. With an increased interest in the linguistic field, Wu considered obtaining a degree in speech pathology at Columbia Univerity but for some reason couldn’t go through with the dream.
Considering her long academic qualifications, Constance gathered enough practical knowledge in the field of acting. Her enormous experience helped her land her first role in The Sound of my Voice after she moved from New York where she had gone to study focus on her acting career.
From that time she started acting fully and appeared in more films. Some of her notable roles onscreen could be seen in films such as Watching TV with the Red Chinese, Best Friends Forever, Deadly Revenge and very recently The Feels and Crazy Rich Asians.
On Television, Constance Wu has also stolen the show with remarkable performances seen in groundbreaking shows such as Law &Order: Special Victims Unit, French Off the Boat and Covert Affairs.
With numerous productions to the Asian-American star, Constance Wu has become a film phenomenon and one of American’s favorite stars. She has equally won various award nominations including being nominated twice for the Indie Series Award, Gold Derby Awards, and a nomination for the Critics’ Choice Television Award for Best Actress in a Comedy Series. In addition, she has been nominated for Television Critics Association TCA Award for Individual Achievement in Comedy. In total, Constance has over 9 award nominations for esteemed awards.
There are numerous things to know about Constance Wu but definitely not her love life. This is because this sensational Asian-American actress remains an enigma when it comes to revealing things about her private life. Apparently, she is not a lesbian and is very much single. It also appears that she has not been married in the past. Other than these facts, nothing more could be said about her.
This is not to say that she has always been close-mouthed about her private life. In the past, the actress has once been publicly linked to Ben Hethcoat who is an actor and filmmaker. Their relationship began in 2011 after they met through a mutual friend. During the affair, the lovers purposely made their relationship open. From proudly sharing comments on social media to posting romantic pictures on their individual social media pages. They were pretty much screaming it out from the rooftop.
Sadly, they separated in 2016 – four years later, without a word about what went wrong. Well, that probably taught Constance that being open may not be a thing as she has completely made her affairs her personal business since then. From the moment of their breakup till date, there has been absolutely nothing to talk about when it comes to the dating status of Constance Wu. This has allowed the star the chance to entirely be in control of what the public can say about her.
Body Stats, Height
It’s easy to notice that Constance Wu is stunning, she stands at 5 feet 3 inches and weighs 57kg which sounds quite petite but that doesn’t bother most people who have seen other reasons to love her. There isn’t much information about her body measurement or statistics except that her bust, hip, and waist measure 35-24 and 35 inches irrespectively.
