Actor and Ingrid Yun on Partner Track
Actress, singer, producer, and entrepreneur, Arden Cho is rapidly emerging as one of Hollywood’s most sought-after talents.
Cho can currently be seen starring as quick-witted lawyer Ingrid Yun in Netflix’s ‘Partner Track,’ which was released on August 26th and was in their top 10 most-viewed series for three weeks. Her other film and tv credits include Teen Wolf, Chicago Med, The Honor List, and Stuck. She has also released original music which she toured across the world performing, launched consumer businesses, and has been the face of international campaigns.
Born in a small town in Texas, Cho rarely saw anyone who looked like her on-screen and decided to change things. At the heart of everything she does is a dream that Asian Americans, especially females and the younger generation, would be more equally and favorably represented.
