Tom is the daughter of Nancy, née Dare, and Chan Tom, who worked in the frozen food business. In an article for Detour magazine, Tom described how being teased as a child about her Chinese heritage made her introverted and inspired her to study dancing.
At the age of seventeen, Tom landed a spot with a touring company of A Chorus Line and was cast in the Broadway production of the show less than a year later. She won an Obie Award for her Off-Broadway acting and was cast in the Broadway shows Hurlyburly and Doonesbury.
Her biggest role to date was as a waitress in the film Cadillac Man. This role led to her being a guest on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson and she later landed a starring role in the film The Joy Luck Club in 1993, which led to roles in other films such as When a Man Loves a Woman and North.
Since the mid-1990s, Tom has starred in few films, focusing her work primarily on the voice-over business, with the exceptions of a supporting role in the 2003 hit comedy Bad Santa and the critically-acclaimed 2004 film In Good Company. Lauren Tom's first role in television was that of Miko Wakamatsu on The Facts of Life.
Tom began vocal work in the animated series Superman: The Animated Series as Angela Chen. From there, Tom had minor roles on Pinky and the Brain, Extreme Ghostbusters, and The Zeta Project before landing her lasting roles on King of the Hill, where she voiced Minh and Connie Souphanousinphone. She later worked for Futurama, voicing Amy and Inez Wong.
