hi, can u please list/name some southeast asian- especially Filipina- actors
H! Coincidentally I’ve been thinking of finally making a tag page for the blog based on actors’ ethnicities. The list is not full, obviously - just those actors I know and have on this blog, also here are only actors that work in Western TV/Film industry:
Actors of Filipinx descent:
Rudy Robles(1906–1970) - one of the first Filipino actors to appear in Hollywood movies. Robles was born in Tacloban. He began his schooling in the Philippines and then emigrated to the United States. He completed high school and college in California, where he excelled in debating and acting. Producer Samuel Goldwyn reportedly discovered and gave him the screen name Rudy Robles, whilst he was working as a bellhop at The Beverly Hills Hotel in Hollywood. His credits include pre- and post-World War II films, as Lt. Yabo in The Real Glory, starring Gary Cooper and David Niven. Among his uncredited roles are The Adventures of Martin Eden (1942), Wake Island (1942), Manila Calling (1942), Nocturne (1946), and Singapore (1947), starring Ava Gardner and Fred McMurray. Robles also played a Filipino assassin in the 1942 film Across the Pacific. After the war, he returned to the Philippines, where he raised a family and started to produce, direct and star in his own films. One of his last on-screen appearances was in an episode of Alfred Hitchcock Presents in 1956. (x)
Lea Salonga - singer and actress best known for her roles in musical theatre, for supplying the singing voices of two Disney Princesses. Last seen on TV - Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, as Aunt Myrna (cameo).
Happy Birthday Georgi Popovich. I decided this was the best way to celebrate (with @the-awkward-orca and @catsinning as my enablers)
Hi my name is Georgi Dark’ness Dementia Evil
Witch Popovich and I have spiked ebony black hair (that’s how I got my name) in
a corn-shape that hovers over my eyebrows and bondi blue eyes like Australlian
waves and a lot of people tell me I look like Ben Stiller (AN: if u don’t know who
he is get da hell off the ice!). I’m not related to Christophe Giacometti but I
wish I was because he has a great ass and then maybe Anya wouldn’t have left
me. I’m an evil witch but my skin is flawless and shining. I have deep raccoon eyes
of regret. I’m also a skater, and I train under Yakov as the top skater in
Russia since my rink-mate Victor left (he’s only a day older than me and
everyone always forgot my birthday because of his). I’m a forever bachelor
(since Anya deserted me) and I’ve worn mostly black since the break-up. I love Hot
Topic and I only let Yakov buy clothes for me from there. For example today I
was wearing a black vest with faux fur and purple sparkles and black leather
pants, a tear drop necklace and black combat skates. I was wearing lavender
lipstick, black eyeliner, violet eyeshadow and had drawn-on eyebrows. I was walking
outside the restaurant I met Anya at. It was snowing and raining so there was
no sun, which I think represents the never-ending tears in my life since I lost
every competition (of love and skating). A lot of couples stared at me. I put
up my middle finger at them.
i’ve been meaning to do one of these for a long time and it’s finally done!! i tried to keep it short but there’s just too many blogs making my dash pretty and funny every day. thank you all for everything you do and please never forget how beautiful and loved you are. i love you guys so much!!
Moral Orel is an adult swim cartoon that during its airing time got panned because of some bad producer decisions (including airing the season 1 finale as the very first episode, that ties up arcs that were building throughout the season) that was easily dismissed as being yet another mean spirited, stop motion show on adult swim. Except it wasn’t. By the second half of the second season into third season this show goes from low-brow comedy into a psychological drama about child abuse, alcoholism, repressed sexuality, and a crisis of faith that feels straight out of an Ingmar Bergman film.
It is a show that aired during 2004-2008 during George W. Bush’s second presidential term (fairly important for understanding the political enviornment that caused this show to be.) and the show itself is about a young boy named Orel who lives in a town called Moralton driven by a christian fundementalist community, which will feel familiar to most Americans growing up in the south. As you can probably gather already, there’s some Davey and Goliath parody element to it. He is a good hearted kid who just wants to do right by the bible and god and unfortunately all of the adults in his town give him cynical, bad advice and he takes things too literally, too far. For the first season there’s a formula of Orel hearing a sermon and then taking the revrend’s advice to extreme logical conclusions. By the third season though it becomes a different show. Dare I say even, an experience.
The animation and art is full of detail which lends itself to a lot of sight gags, by the third season the command over stop motion animation is fully cinematic and beautiful to watch, especially the character acting.
Also it features music from The Mountain Goats, including this song:
as for where you can watch it, well, the only legal venue to see the show in its entirety is on hulu (or region 4 australlian dvds…) as it never got a dvd release. Otherwise, you can find it if you know where to find things, if you catch my drift but I’d encourage hulu if you have it. There is also one special, Beforel Orel, which aired in 2012, and one “extra” episode made by the creator of the show and one of his storyboard artists using crude models (as the show was canceled and the puppets were put into storage.). Both are excellent.
So I hit my first thousand awhile ago and i’ve been meaning to do this but i just haven’t gotten around to it. I’ve met so many amazing people and follow so many lovely people and this is just a way to say thank you, for making being apart of the 5SOSFam just that much better.
