Grace Park is an American-born, Canadian raised actor whose background is Korean. The significance of her background is that she is one of the few Korean actresses who have become an unquestioned star in Hollywood and as such she is not only a role model for other Asian women who want to be actresses but she is someone who potentially can become a crossover actress in that her appeal can extend to the continent of Asia, most notably in South Korea.
Grace Park is a Hollywood icon to many young actresses and her success as a feature actress in the television series "Battlestar Galactica" and currently in the hit television series "Hawaii Five-O" makes her someone whose future roles in Hollywood could be in movies as a leading lady.
Hollywood producers and directors as well as many entertainment agents and insiders consider Grace Park to be a Hollywood actress who is capable of being the feature actress in a dramatic movie or romantic comedy that would have success both in North America and in the Asian markets. Grace Park has the potential to become a international superstar actress and when one considers that with her being a new mother she might want more time to spend at home with her family the luxury of making the transition to movies would enable her to complete the majority of her acting work during the summer.
Grace Park is currently filming her television series "Hawaii Five-O" but she has the potential to be both a very successful brand ambassador in North America and Korea and also an international film star and with her talent it is more likely a question of "when" it will happen not if.
