She is currently co-starring in the Sherlock Holmes–inspired crime drama series Elementary as Joan Watson, and voicing Silvermist in Disney's Tinkerbell film series.
In 1991 Liu underwent surgery after a breast cancer scare. "The doctor sort of felt and said it was cancer and it needs to come out. I went into shell-shock. It was pretty traumatizing." The lump was removed just two days after the doctor's examination and was found to be benign.
Liu has studied various religions, such as Jewish mysticism, Buddhism, and Taoism. She has stated, "I'm into all things spiritual—anything to do with meditation or charts or any of that stuff. I studied Chinese philosophy in school. There's something in the metaphysical that I find very fascinating."
She has been a member of the Chinese-American organization Committee of 100 since 2004.
Liu announced the birth of her son Rockwell Lloyd, who had been born via a gestational surrogate, on August 27, 2015.
