The 31-year-old actor and Tony Award nominee will portray Broadway newcomer Kimber in the hit mystery comedy-drama TV series

February 24, 2023
“Emily in Paris” star Ashley Park is joining the cast of Hulu’s hit series “Only Murders in the Building” in a recurring role. 
Park, 31, will portray Kimber, a Broadway newcomer, in the show’s upcoming third season. Other actors such as Meryl Streep, Paul Rudd and Jesse Williams will also be joining the series.
Created by Steve Martin and John Hoffman, “Only Murders in the Building” is a mystery comedy-drama TV series that follows three strangers – Charles (Steve Martin), Oliver (Martin Short) and Mabel (Selena Gomez) – who live in the same New York City apartment building.
The show has received various accolades, including nominations from the Critics’ Choice Television Awards, Golden Globe Awards, People’s Choice Awards and Primetime Emmy Awards.
Unlike her character Kimber, Park herself is a Tony Award nominee. She received critical acclaim for originating the role of Gretchen Wieners in Tina Fey’s Broadway musical “Mean Girls,” and in 2017, she portrayed the character MwE in the musical “KPOP” while it was still an off-Broadway production. For her role as Mindy in “Emily in Paris,” Park made history as the first Asian American actress to be nominated for “Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series” at the Critics’ Choice Awards. 

She will soon appear in Adele Lim’s directorial debut film “Joy Ride” with “Everything Everywhere All at Once” star and Oscar nominee Stephanie Hsu, “Shortcomings” actor Sherry Cola and comedian Sabrina Wu. The film will premiere at the 2023 SXSW Festival on March 17 and in theaters on June 23.
Park will also star in “Beef,” a new dramedy starring Steven Yeun and Ali Wong, which will premiere at the 2023 SXSW Festival on March 18 and on Netflix on April 6.
