Jamie Chung was originally born and raised in San Francisco by second-generation Korean-American parents. After her success on The Real World, she moved to L.A. where “there was more sun” and started getting small roles in Hollywood films.
Her first “main role” cast came in 2011’s Sucker Punch, where she played the beautiful Amber. Her looks are distinctly Asian, and yet still beautiful. Her appearance in The Real World gave her an “Asian girl next door” vibe, and as Hollywood becomes more accepting of Asian film stars (especially the women) Jamie’s star will likely continue to rise in future film and modeling projects.
Originally famous for her stint on the Real World San Diego, Jamie later on starting working in the movie industry starring in Asian female roles
