LA Times: Can Emmy Contender Constance Wu Pull A Rabbit Out of a Hat?

FRESH OFF THE BOAT - "Persistent Romeo" - Louis has to hire a professional instructor (guest star Brett Gelman) to give the restaurant staff a sexual harassment seminar after Jessica's attempts fall flat. Meanwhile, Eddie tries to pass off the seminar's instructional tape as a "dirty movie" to his friends in an attempt to impress them and get them to come to his house for a sleep over, on "Fresh Off the Boat," TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 17, (8:00-8:30 p.m. ET) on the ABC Television Network. (ABC/Eric McCandless) CONSTANCE WU From the pilot episode to the season finale of Fresh Off the Boat, Constance Wu has generated buzz from fans as a possible Emmy contender.

That buzz is starting to look more and more like it could become reality.

The Los Angeles Times recently interviewed Wu as part of its series of interviews with Emmy contenders.

Wu says if she wasn’t acting, she’d open a rabbit sanctuary.

Hopefully she’ll be able to pull a rabbit out of her hat and not only garner an Emmy nomination, but take home the prestigious statuette as well.

In the interview with the Times, she talks about the angst many Asian Americans felt that Fresh Of the Boat might perpetuate stereotypes. She credits the depth of the characters and writing for easing those fears. She also discusses the risks of doing comedy and the reaction of Eddie Huang’s real life mother to Wu’s portrayal of her.
