EXCLUSIVE: We’ll be seeing more of Jen on Last Man Standing. Krista Marie Yu, who has appeared in two episodes as the character, has been promoted to series regular on the Fox series.

Yu’s Jen is a foreign exchange student from Hong Kong that Mike (Tim Allen) and Vanessa Baxter (Nancy Travis) are hosting in their Colorado home. She appeared earlier this season in a guest spot, when she and her father visited to see if the Baxters would be a good fit, and returned in this past Friday’s episode to move in with the family.

Created by Jack Burditt, Last Man Standing stars Allen as Mike Baxter, a happily married father of three daughters, who finds himself the odd man out as he tries to maintain his manliness in a home dominated by women.

In addition to Allen and Travis, the series stars Jonathan Adams as Chuck Larabee, Amanda Fuller as Mike and Vanessa’s oldest daughter, Kristin; Molly McCook as their free-spirited second daughter, Mandy; Christoph Sanders as Mike’s charmingly naïve co-worker and Mandy’s husband, Kyle Anderson; Jordan Masterson as Kristin’s husband, Ryan Vogelson; Jet Jurgensmeyer as Kristin and Ryan’s young son, Boyd; and Hector Elizondo as owner of Outdoor Man, Ed Alzate.

Yu is best known as Ken Jeong’s teenage daughter Molly on Dr. Ken. Additional TV credits include Switched at Birth, The Middle and The Thundermans. She’s repped by Abrams Artists Agency and Authentic Talent and Literary Agency.
