Woman Crush Wednesday: Meet Ming-Na Wen

Today’s Woman Crush Wednesday (#WCW) is Ming-Na Wen, known to many of us as Agent Melinda May in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

“The Cavalry has arrived” has a whole new meaning thanks to Agent May. Strong and brilliant, May is both a weapons expert and a savant at operating an aircraft. At times seeming aloof or cold, May’s loyalty to those she feels worthy runs deep. She can feel as hard as she fights, bringing a sense of stability to the team. For those reasons, and many more, she is not only our WCW but also one of our Top 10 Fiercest Women on TV.

Ming-Na’s parents fled China during the Cultural Revolution. She lived in Hong Kong before moving to the United States as a child. Her teenage years were spent working in her family’s Chinese restaurant in Pittsburgh’s Chinatown. While her mother would have preferred Ming-Na become a doctor, she enrolled and graduated with a theatre degree from Carnegie Mellon University.

Early in her career, Ming-Na also starred in SGU Stargate Universe and had a recurring role on Eureka. MOST importantly, she rocked voicing one of my personal favorite Disney characters, the rockstar heroine, Mulan.
