While there are some stars in Hollywood who simply love to sit back, relax and enjoy their global celebrity status, there are others who like to use their fame in a bid to raise awareness of causes close to their heart. That has certainly been the case for actress Jamie Chung, who has been trying to help raise awareness of ALS, by taking part in an ice bucket challenge.
Jamie took to her official Instagram account to reveal, "Ice bucket challenge accepted #ALS awareness @geoffmstults @jenmorrisonlive," along with a video of herself. She has now tried to rope in some of her friends to take part in the ice bucket challenge, including the likes of Vanessa Hudgens, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Abbie Cornish and Jena Malone, "I challenge @vanessahudgens @jenamalone @abbiecornish @brianaevigan and @echriqui #icebucketchallenge #ALSawarness," Chung added, along with another video.
ALS is described as "Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, often referred to as "Lou Gehrig's Disease," is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. Motor neurons reach from the brain to the spinal cord and from the spinal cord to the muscles throughout the body."
As far as her acting career is concerned, as well as continuing her role in the hit television series Believe, Jamie Chung will also be seen on the big screen in the role of Miho for the movie sequel Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, which opens on August 22 in the US, before then hitting the big screen in the UK on August 25.
