Lisa Olivia Munn was born in Oklahoma. She is of Chinese descent on her mother’s side (though her mother was raised in Vietnam) and of German-Irish descent on her father’s. When Munn was two, her mother re-married, this time to a man in the United States Air Force. Although the family relocated many times, Munn was predominantly raised in Tokyo, Japan, where the military assigned her stepfather. During this time, she had appeared in a number of local theater productions, and later became a model within the Japanese fashion industry. She also attended the University of Oklahoma, majoring in journalism and minoring in Japanese and dramatic arts. Munn moved back to the United States, settling in Los Angeles, California to pursue an acting career. In 2004, she interned at Fox Sports Net and worked as a sideline reporter for college football and women’s basketball. She has gone on to say that she disliked the experience, explaining “I was trying to be something I wasn’t, and that made me really uncomfortable on live TV.”
Olivia Munn Bio
Munn appeared in ABC Family’s Greek, portraying Cappie’s love interest, Lana. In May 2010, NBC announced that Munn would star in the upcoming television series Perfect Couples. The half-hour romantic comedy is scheduled for the 2010–11 television season. On June 3, 2010, Munn premiered in her new role as a correspondent on Comedy Central’s The Daily Show. Her hiring prompted criticism from Irin Carmon of Jezebel, who questioned Munn’s credentials and accused the show’s production of sexism in hiring Munn, whom Carmon characterized as a sex symbol. Carmon saw Munn’s hiring as a perpetuation of the show production office’s history as a male-dominated atmosphere marginalizing and alienation to women. A group of 32 female Daily Show production staff members criticized Carmon’s piece for being inaccurate and misinformed, as did Munn herself in an interview, in which she stated that Carmon’s assertion was insult both to her and to the rest of the Daily Show staff. In July 2010 it was announced that Munn would guest-star in NBC’s Chuck as a CIA agent.
