Additionally, Liu is described as fluent in several languages, has a deep understanding for military culture, and has a mysterious past.
“We are thrilled to have Katrina join the [cast],” showrunner Peter M. Lenkov told TV Line. “She dazzles as Quinn, the team’s newest recruit, and viewers are going to love seeing how she first encounters McGarrett and Danny (played by Scott Caan). If you know the show well, you’ll be feeling some déjà vu.”

The actress was also in the CBS drama “Training Day” that was canceled after one season.

“Hawaii Five-0″ season 10 is set to return on television on Friday, Sept. 27. The show started filming the new season in mid-July and kicked off production with the ceremonial blessing to welcome its 10th year.
“In this day and age with content, the changes in content that have happened over the last decade, it’s so rare for a show to do this,” O’ Loughlin said. “I really believe that it’s a testament to every single person on this show. Every PA (production assistant), every grip, every electrician, everything. Actors get a lot of face time with the press ‘cause we’re the faces on TV but there’s so many hands in this, you know, making this happen and creating the end result from pre-production to actual production to post-production.
