Gia Kim Bio, Age, Boyfriend, Parents, Height, XO, Kitty

The aspiring actor, Gia Kim has finally landed her first major role, and a cherry on the top — the show airs internationally on Netflix! In XO, Kitty, Gia plays “Yuri,” a social media influencer who is tailed by the paparazzi 24/7.

Keep reading this Gia Kim Bio to learn more about the actor.

Gia Kim On XO, Kitty

To All the Boys spin-off, XO, Kitty might follow Lara Jean Covey’s youngest sister, who heads off to study in Seoul, South Korea, but it also features several characters such as “Yuri,” portrayed by Gia Kim, who each are a star of their own world.

Gia’s character is an It girl from the moment she enters the scene. She’s so confident, well-dressed, and effortlessly chic that even Cathcart’s Kitty is a little stunned. Sadly, Yuri isn’t always allowed to be the person she really is as she’s tailed by the paparazzi wherever she goes. Furthermore, her father is a successful businessman and her mother is the principal of KISS.

Ep 1 of XO, Kitty revealed Yuri was reeling from her parents discovering a romantic relationship between her and her best friend Juliana, news that made Juliana transfer schools. Guess, underneath the self-assured exterior is a heartbroken teenage girl.

But then again, Yuri’s persona was exactly why Gia auditioned for the role. “Even before I read the script — I mean this kind of like ties through the whole audition process — but like I found this through an open casting call posting that I saw on Instagram and as soon as I saw the breakdown of the character that they were looking for I was immediately like woah this is really refreshing,” she explained. “I’ve never seen a character like Yuri before and just the fact that she was going to come to life on screen whether through me or you know somebody else was really exciting.”

So, for the audition, Gia sent a self-tape in English, and towards the very end, they were asked to do an impromptu Korean translation of their scripts.

After Gia landed the role, she then had a hard time figuring out how to portray the character as Yuri came from an affluent background which Gia couldn’t relate to, and also because “Yuri has a very complex character and it’s like easy if you just think of her as the “queen bee — the evil queen bee.” But that’s like so one dimensional and that’s not who she is,” the actor explained.

But in the end, Gia figured out that Yuri was just someone who just wanted to be “loved, seen, and appreciated” for who she was. And that was the core connection she made with her character.

How Much Is Gia Kim Net Worth?

Gia Kim garnered a net worth of under $100 thousand by 2023. This is comparatively lower than that of her co-stars as XO, Kitty was the actor’s first big role.

As for her training, Gia has an MFA degree from Art of Acting Studio in LA and a BA in Journalism from the University of Hong Kong. Also, she’s studied Scene Study & Shakespeare, Theater Audition, Stella Adler Technique, Movement, Scene Study, On-screen acting, and more.
