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).
✨ Hamilton Characters as Greek Gods///Thomas Jefferson as Poseidon
“‘Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.’ We fought for these ideals; we shouldn’t settle for less. These are wise words, enterprising men quote 'em. Don’t act surprised, you guys, cuz I wrote ‘em.”
God of the Sea and protector of all aquatic features. He was second to Zeus in power amongst the gods. He was considered to have a difficult quarrelsome personality. Combined with his greed and arrogance, he had a series of disputes with otherGods during his various attempts to take over the cities they were patrons of.

NYPost: Dave Franco bros out, gets naked in ‘Neighbors’
Dave Franco knows exactly what his fraternity pledge name would have been: “Vertically Challenged.” Luckily, what the 5-foot-7 actor — starring as a loutish frat brother in Friday’s rowdy comedy “Neighbors” — lacks in inches, he makes up for in self-deprecating humor.
Chalk up the defense mechanism to growing up under the thumb of a sadistic older sibling: James Franco.
“[James’] main form of torture when we were growing up, he would zip me up fully in a sleeping bag and tickle torture me from the outside. That’s the definition of torture,” Dave, 28, tells The Post.
“I’d be screaming and crying, and he just happened to be the best tickler of all time.”
