Rosalind Chao

After featuring her Joy Luck Club co-star Ming-Na Wen – as well as fellow Star Trek babe Linda Park – I thought it only fair that we should also do a post on Chinese actress Rosalind Chao. Okay, so maybe she isn’t as sexy as Linda, but for my money she’s prettier than Ming-Na, and looks amazing considering she’s pushing 50! Despite her long and distinguished acting career, the above pic was the only decent sized one I could find, and there don’t seem to be any fan sites devoted to her either.Perhaps best known for her recurring guest role as Keiko O’Brien in Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, her acting career actually stretches all the way back to 1970, when she appeared in an episode of I Love Lucy. Since then, she has made nearly a hundred(!) notable TV appearances, and has starred in 44 films. Come on, surely it must be worthwhile for somebody to do a fan site on her! Here’s a Wikipedia entry on her anyway.

  1. I didn’t remember her name but I believe Rosalind Chao is the actress I saw a number of times with her family (husband, wife, and children). Interestingly, it only mentions she has a son in wikipedia and other sources but I always see her with a boy and girl. I wonder how recently that photo was taken because she looks quite young in it.

  2. I don’t think the photo is that old, but it is flattering. Still, I think she’s prettier than Ming-Na Wen, even if she isn’t very pretty by Asian standards.

  3. I think ‘ancient sirens’ should be applauded at every opportunity – it’s easy to look pretty when you’re 18, but it’s quite an achievement when you’re 48!

  4. Big fan of this able honey, mainly because of her long running work with our own Colm Meaney as Keiko O’Brien. They made a brilliant couple and family with kids and all! But her real shining moment was in an episode of Tour Of Duty called ‘The Gray Brown Odyssey’ where she played a young Vietnamese prisoner who hates Americans and the devestation the soldiers brought to her country. A must see.
