Grace Park joins HAWAII FIVE-O

Grace Parks (BATTLESTAR GALACTICA, THE CLEANER) is joining the cast of the upcoming CBS remake of HAWAII FIVE-O, according to THR. She will be playing Kono Kalakaua, niece of will play Detective Chin Ho Kelly (Daniel Dae Kim).

Kono is described as “a spectacular Asian/Hawaiian beauty who is a champion surfer, with the smarts to match her amazing physical prowess. However, Kono’s sole interest is getting her badge and becoming a cop. She’s about to graduate from the police academy when McGarrett recruits her to join his team. Amped and ready for action, Kono goes undercover as a downtrodden immigrant girl looking for help from a notorious human trafficker — a perilous assignment that takes a disastrous turn.”

I have only seen season one of BG, but really enjoyed her on THE CLEANER. Good to see her land on her feet after The Cleaner was cancelled.
