Jamie Chung started out as a reality star on MTV's "The Real World." I don't like to include reality stars on this blog, but in the case of Ms. Chung, a daughter of Korean immigrants to the U.S., I'm happy to make an exception. Because it turns out she can act! :-D
Although she's done some fluff (I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry), Ms. Chung has shone in more serious roles like in the satirical film Burning Palms, as well as the 2012 independent film Eden, in which she played a girl abducted and forced into prostitution by human traffickers. On TV, she also plays the warrior Mulan in the ABC fairy-tale series "Once Upon a Time."
She's also engaged to actor Bryan Greenberg.
