Kelly Ann Hu is a Hawaiian Chinese-American actress, who plays the Human female character Admiral Ozawa.


Ms. Hu became Miss Teen USA in 1985 and then Miss Hawaii USA in 1993. She then went on to become a fashion model, and transitioned into acting. To increase her acting potential, she learned martial arts, and improved her Chinese skills (Cantonese and Mandarin), while working on the TV show Martial Law.

The OrvilleEdit

Hu first appeared in Krill, rendezvousing with the Orville on the USS Olympia. Once the rendezvous was complete, Ozawa boarded the Orville for a conversation with Captain Ed Mercer and Commander Kelly Grayson about the Krill shuttle that was left behind in the wreckage of a destroyed Krill vessel. The admiral orders Captain Mercer and pilot Gordon Malloy on a mission to find and create a copy of the Krill Anhkana.

According to Hu, she prefers to emphasize the widow's peak of her hairline when playing evil characters. Because Ozawa is good, she purposefully de-emphasized her widow's peak.[1]

Hu published a photograph of her attending the show's Season 2 wrap party, leading fans to speculate that she will return to the show as Admiral Ozawa.[2]
