#1 Constance Wu
Constance is most known for her lead role as the American-Asian Rachel Chu in Crazy Rich Asians but she first rose to fame as the matriarch Jessica Huang in the sitcom Fresh Off the Boat-based loosely on the life of chef Eddie Huang. She received four Critic’s Choice Awards for Best Actress in a comedy role for her work in this series and was also named by E! as the breakout star of 2014-15. The star recently received bad publicity online for her negative response to the initial news that her series, Fresh Off The Boat would be renewed for another season. When it was recently announced that the series would be discontinued next year, she received jibes from Netizens and was ‘congratulated’ about the news. The star has signed on to reprise her role as Rachel in the last Crazy Rich Asian sequels.
