Actresses that I absolutely adore - I wish people wouldn’t just see me as the Asian girl who beats everyone up, or the Asian girl with no emotion. People see Julia Roberts or Sandra Bullock in a romantic comedy, but not me. You add race to it, and it became, ‘Well, she’s too Asian’, or, ‘She’s too American’. I kind of got pushed out of both categories. It’s a very strange place to be. You’re not Asian enough and then you’re not American enough, so it gets really frustrating.
Actresses that I absolutely adore - I’ve always been a black sheep. That’s a hard thing to be until you find your calling in life. I was bullied a lot at school, probably because I was perceived to be different from everyone else. But it’s so much of a relief when something works out for you as acting has done for me. I do believe in a kind of rough justice. I wouldn’t regard myself as a success just yet, and I don’t want to jinx it, but I do feel vindicated by what I’ve achieved so far.

And yet he’s failing his classes, he is constantly in trouble, when I talk to him he’s like a stranger to me… I don’t know, Delbert! I’ve tried everything. "
Actresses that I absolutely adore - When I was younger it really sucked, because I think a lot of the other characters were fan favourites. When you’re 13 and you don’t really understand the business and your best friend is getting a lot of love and you’re getting a lot of hate… well, it was difficult. I don’t know, I just kind of make Sansa my own, and I hope people understand her. That’s what I want – I want understanding rather than whether they like her or they hate her.

You don’t have to keep your distance anymore. ‘Coz for the first time in forever, I finally understand. For the first time in forever, we can fix this hand in hand. We can head down this mountain together! You don’t have to live in fear! ‘Coz for the first time in forever…I will be right here."
Actresses that I absolutely adore - I hate being looked at. Can’t stand it. I know, I know - I picked the wrong career. I should have been a doctor. If you play certain parts you have this nice face painted on you, and then you have feel as if you have a responsibility to this idea of being beautiful. I hate that about our business. It shouldn’t inform what you do. But there’s a perceived inverse relation between looks and talent.
