Early life, education, and career
Born in Taiwan but raised in the U.S., Chen attended the University of Texas at Austin and then began her career in show business, doing voiceover work for the English version of anime television series such as Lost Universe and the Devil.
Chen's first feature film roles were uncredited appearances as Miss New Hampshire in the 2000 film, Miss Congeniality, and as a cheerleader in the 2002 film, The New Guy.
From 2006 to 2007, Chen had a regular recurring role as Samantha Li on Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip. ..... On stage, Chen portrayed "Christmas Eve" in a 2012 Los Angeles production of Avenue Q.

In 2017, she had a prominent guest-starring role in an episode of the TV series Teachers, playing Mrs. Chan, "a priggish mother of two and president of the parent group Two Million Moms".
Chen's performance as a "tactless doctor" in a bit part in the 2018 film Game Night was reviewed in The Village Voice as "a deadpan gift", in a scene described by The Hollywood Reporter as "one of Game Night's funnier scenes", and by The New Yorker as making "memorable impressions". Also in 2018, she guest-starred in multiple episodes of Unsolved: The Murders of Tupac and the Notorious B.I.G. as robbery-homicide department secretary Grace Kim. She had a starring role in the independent pilot "I Was a Teenage Pillow Queen", premiered in September 2018 at the Tribeca TV Festival, and in November 2018, she guest-starred in two episodes of Single Parents.
