“I was temporarily upset yesterday not [because] I hate the show but [because] its renewal meant I had to give up another project that I was really passionate about,” explained Wu. “So my dismayed social media replies were more about that other project and not about FOTB.”
She further clarified that her posts should not be misinterpreted to mean she doesn’t love and enjoy starring in the hugely popular series.
“I do love and enjoy it. I hope you believe me,” she added. “People can hold conflicting feelings in their hearts — that conflict is a part of being human. So I can both love the show/cast/crew but at the same to be disappointed that I lost that other unrelated job.”
“Fresh Off the Boat,” which she co-stars with Randall Park, was instrumental in boosting Wu’s acting career when it launched in 2015. The show’s highly anticipated sixth season is set to air on September 27.
