I always see people appreciating women of color, but seem to exclude Asians from this. Asian women are poc as well and are beautiful, intelligent, strong women. So here are 10 of my favorite Asian actresses. Feel free to add to the list.
My name is Nikita. Six years ago, I was taken from prison and forced to become an assassin for a secret unit of the government; a Black Ops program called Division that has now gone rogue. They destroyed my identity and they destroyed the man I loved. I escaped, and now the man that trained me, someone I trusted, is hunting me. What Division doesn’t know is that I have a partner on the inside: Alex, a new recruit with a dark past who I’ve trained in secret to resist their control. Together, we’re going to take Division apart, one mission at a time, and the last word they’ll breathe before the end… will be my name.
“We all wear masks. Everyone, everyday. Sometimes we wear them so much we forget who we really are. Sometimes, if we’re lucky, someone comes along and shows us who we really want to be; who we should be.”
