[Katana] means so much, because it’s very off putting when an actor of a different Asian ethnicity plays a Japanese character, especially if the movie is going to be aired in that country. Growing up I realised that we really don’t have that many Asian actresses, models, or people that make public appearances on TV in Hollywood. Every Halloween I would have such a struggle dressing up as something because I would always feel so fake, like, “What superhero can I be? What Disney princess can I be?” I was so limited.
I think I saw a post on your blog that showed the different ethnicities of Asian culture, do you have a link to that post or can you tell me yourself? I'm just being curious since only mainstream media show East Asians and I want to learn more about the different backgrounds. Thanks and I hope you're having a nice day!
