Hawaii Five-0

Sea­son 6 M-Net (*101) 20:30 Ac­tion

Grace Park knows a thing or two about kick­ing butt, thanks to her ac­tion role as De­tec­tive Kono Kalakaua in Hawaii Five- 0 (2010-cur­rent). And while it’s shot on lo­ca­tion in Hawaii, the par­adise get­away is sim­ply “just a place I work,” says the 42-year-old. “Not every­body is into sun and surf; I’m more of a city per­son.”

Born in LA, Grace’s fam­ily moved 1

to Canada when she was two years old. She’s of Korean her­itage and holds dual ci­ti­zen­ship for both the United States and Canada.

She stud­ied psy­chol­ogy at the Uni2

ver­sity Of Victoria in Bri­tish Columbia, Canada and took a gap year af­ter grad­u­at­ing. By 2000, the Asian beauty had landed a num­ber of mod­el­ling jobs and in 2001 started act­ing with a role on teen soapie Edge­mont (2001-2005).

Not that she’s afraid to do her own 3

stunts… well, most of them. While she loves throw­ing punches, Grace took a step back af­ter film­ing sea­son 6’s first episode af­ter she al­most drowned tap­ing a surf­ing scene.

Tal­ented Grace can speak multi4

ple lan­guages, in­clud­ing English, Korean, French and Can­tonese.

She mar­ried prop­erty de­vel­oper 5

Phil Kim in 2004 and they’ve kept their young son [there aren’t even pho­tos of him] away from the spot­light. “I’m not a fame seeker. I’m an in­tro­vert. In Van­cou­ver, I can go shop­ping with­out draw­ing a crowd, which isn’t the case when I am in the States,” she says.
