Despite this discrimination, she had a number of significant film roles.

Her first role was in the silent film, The Red Lantern (1919) with Alla Nazimova, as an uncredited extra. Born Wong Liu Tsong (黃柳霜, pinyin: Huáng Liǔshuāng) in Los Angeles, California, she began playing bit parts as a teenager.
