Today we are congratulating NIC acting graduate Yu Matsushita for her BIG news booking a stunt actor part on Kung Fu season 2! Season 2 will premiere on March 9th 2022 on CW. Read on to find out more about the show and Yu’s biography:
A quarter-life crisis causes a young Chinese-American woman, Nicky Shen, to drop out of college and go on a life-changing journey to an isolated monastery in China. But when she returns to find her hometown overrun with crime and corruption, Nicky uses her martial arts skills and Shaolin values to protect her community and bring criminals to justice — all while searching for the assassin who killed her Shaolin mentor and is now targeting her.
Yu began her journey training extensively in many dance forms including ballet jazz, lyrical jazz, modern dance, contemporary, hip hop and tap (and even theatrical singing!). Since graduating from our acting conservatory here at NIC, Yu has become a successful stunt actor. Most recently, Yu played a News Anchor in the TV Series Pachinko as both actor and stunt performer. We are so proud of all her dedication and hard work. Our graduates work!
