Sucker Punch starlet Jamie Chung has been cast in the recurring role of Chinese warrior Mulan on season two of ABC’s hit fairy tale series “Once Upon a Time.” The character is described as emotionally guarded, but loyal, and skilled in weaponry, tracking and riding.
Chung is best known to genre fans for her sexy turn as doomed dancer Amber in Zack Snyder’s fantasy-actioner Sucker Punch. She’s also starred in the 2009 remake Sorority Row, Dragonball Evolution (based on the Japanese Dragon Ball magna), and the indie-anthology Burning Palms.
The 29-year-old stunner will next be seen as a rookie flight attendant in Takashi Shimizu’s (The Grudge) airline frightener 7500 and as an abducted Korean-American girl sold into prostitution in Megan Griffiths’ (The Off Hours) human trafficking drama Eden.
“Once Upon a Time” followed Emma Swan (Jennifer Morrison), daughter of Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin) and Prince Charming (Josh Dallas), as she rid the small New England town of Storybrooke from an Evil Queen’s (Lana Parilla) curse. The show returns this Fall.
