Meet The Whale Star Hong Chau +2023

Though it took nearly 10 years for her acting career to take off, actress Hong Chau has notable film credits to her credit such as Inherent Vice, Downsizing, and Treme. She has also appeared on a handful of shows including HBO’s Big Little Lies, Bojack Horseman, and Watchmen. Chau is currently attracting attention for her roles in Darren Aronofsky’s The Whale and The Menu, in the latter starring alongside Ralph Fiennes, Anya Taylor-Joy and John Leguizamo.

Chau started acting in the mid-2000s, ending up mostly in supporting roles on television shows like NCIS and How I Met Your Mother, but she didn’t land her first major film role until 2014’s Inherent Vice. While Chau had been circling the Hollywood scene for nearly 10 years at this point, acting gigs were few and far between. However, in 2017 she exploded in the spotlight when she was cast in the film Downsizing, and her performance later garnered Golden Globe and SAG Award nominations, among others.

Since her big break in downsizing, Chau has had an incredible track record and shows no signs of slowing down. If you fell in love with Chaus’s performances after seeing “The Whale” or “The Menu,” read on to learn more about the acclaimed actor!
