Hu was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, the daughter of Juanita, an engineering drafter for Honolulu, and Herbert Hu, a salesman and exotic bird breeder; the two divorced during Hu’s childhood. Hu has held a lifelong interest in singing and dancing and has also been interested in martial arts since her early childhood. Hu’s cousin was a successful model in Japan, and Hu decided to follow her example. Kelly Hu won the title of Miss Hawaii Teen USA and competed in the 1985 Miss Teen USA pageant, becoming the Miss Teen USA pageant’s third titleholder in history and its first Asian American winner. Hu moved to Los Angeles and began her acting career in 1987, with a guest starring role as Mike Seaver’s Hawaiian love interest on the sitcom Growing Pains. Her first movie role was in Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan.
