Vanessa Kai is best known for her work on the CW’s hit series “Kung Fu.” She is a native New Yorker and a first generation Chinese American. She began her professional training as a drama student at Fiorello LaGuardia High School Of Music & Art and Performing Arts.

With numerous theater credits, she was nominated for a Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding Featured Actress in a Musical for her performance as “Ruby” in the sold-out, extended world premiere of “KPOP,” an Off-Broadway, immersive musical event produced by Ars Nova.

Before “Kung Fu”, Vanessa appeared in a number of other television series and films, including “New Amsterdam”, “Orange Is the New Black”, “The Mysteries of Laura”, “The Blacklist”, “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit”, and “Madam Secretary.” Off-screen, Vanessa is an advocate for Asian representation in the entertainment industry and has spoken out about the need for more diverse storytelling.
