Kelly Hu is a geek veteran when it comes to movies and animated productions. The stunning actress born in Honolulu, Hawaii, has always surprised people with her strong interest to pursue geeky projects in Hollywood. Many would ask why? The beauty queen was crowned Miss Hawaii Teen USA and competed in the Miss Teen USA 1985 pageant, becoming the Miss Teen USA pageant’s third title holder in history and its first Asian American winner. Not exactly what you would expect right, never judge a book by its cover the old saying goes. She is also a martial arts specialist, so be careful if you pass comments that are not appropriate!
