Emily Liu, decided to pursue her passion in the performing arts after dabbling
in the corporate world working for companies such as, Saatchi & Saatchi
and Toyota Motor Sales. She studied at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in
London and soon after, got her break in television recurring on ABC's daytime
drama Port Charles.
Since then, Emily has worked steadily in TV (including Boston Legal, What About
Brian, Sleeper Cell), film (A Good Day to be Black & Sexy - Sundance 2008),
and theatre (LA Weekly, LA Drama Critics Circle awards) and has worked with
such directors as, Spike Lee (in Sucker Free City).
She started her production company, Sweet Violet Films, over 2 years ago because
of a dearth of leading roles for Asian American actors and produced her first
feature film, THE TROUBLE WITH ROMANCE, a comedy about relationships, which
has toured festivals to sold-out houses and will be released on DVD by a major
distributor later this year.
