Ming-Na first won attention with her touching and critically acclaimed performance as June in the feature film THE JOY LUCK CLUB. But she is most noted for her portrayal of Dr. Jing-Mei Chen on the hit show ER and Melinda May on Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD. Other series have included SGU STARGATE UNIVERSE and EUREKA. She currently plays bounty hunter Fennic Shand on The Mandalorian and The Bad Batch.
Ming-Na received the first contract role for an Asian-American actor in a daytime drama when she won the part of Lien Hughes on “As the World Turns.” Other television credits include “Law and Order SVU,” “Boston Legal,” “The George Lopez Show,” “Private Practice,” and “Two and a Half Men.” The diverse actress proved she was able to play more than the gentle wallflower June in “The Joy Luck Club,” when she tackled the roles of Chun-Li, the butt-kicking female lead in “Streetfighter”; and as the sex-hungry wife Mimi in director Mike Figgis’ film “One Night Stand.” Ming-Na is proud to be the title voice of “Mulan,” Disney’s animated feature (for which she won an Annie Award) as well as the lead voice of Aki Ross in the stunning CGI animated film “Final Fantasy.” The talented actress has also has lent her voice for the shows Phineus and Ferb and Ni Hao Kai Lan; as well as documentaries and children’s books.
Motor City Comic Con’s annual event takes place every May and because of the health restrictions, the 2021 event was moved to October 15-17, 2021. The convention will return to being hosted annually in May, in 2022. Both events will take place at the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi. The biggest and baddest weekend in Michigan will feature actors from the television, movie, and streaming industry, along with the most creative artists, writers, and comic book creators in the industry.
An added convenience feature this year for guests to avoid the long admission lines, will be RFID wristbands! RFID wristbands are available for purchase and mailed to homes for an additional $15 fee. Fans who purchase these RFID wristbands and have them mailed prior to the con will not have to wait in any lines before entering the convention and get a faster start to their
Motor City Comic Con experience. This option allows guests to skip registration by simply putting on the wristband before entering the show.
