Hu stars on the ABC sitcom, In Case Of Emergency, and her character, Kelly Lee, makes money for law school by giving happy endings to her customers.
She admits the role might seem stereotypical to those who havent seen the show, but shes loving it because her character plays off the stereotypes of Asians and uses them against people.
For instance, Hu says her character speaks perfect English, but fakes an Asian accent with customers because its her way of making fun of what people think Asians sound like.
Hu admits preparing for the role wasnt easy because of the nature of the massage biz.
In her words, Its hard to do research in a massage parlor. If youre playing a stripper, you can go to a bar and observe the interaction, but its all one-on-one at a massage parlor.
Still, she says she talked with lots of guys who seemed like they would go to one and they gave me lots of details.
In Case Of Emergency airs Wednesdays nights.
