This was made in response to an anon we recently got who asked,

(Image reads - anonymous asked wocinsolidarity: We all know Lucy Liu is an industry favorite but do you know of any other Eastern Asia (or Asia in general) woc actresses?)

So rather then do a laundry list, I thought it would be cool to compile a photoset of someof the Asian actresses currently on television shows that aren’t Lucy Liu (though we do love us some Joan Watson). I asked around, and made this list based on my own TV watching and suggestions from people I know. So A) I don’t actually know if all of these shows are good or not and B) if one of your faves is missing it wasn’t done maliciously. 

*Disclaimers: All images used were found on Google. We do not own or claim to own any of these photos. All information about ethnic identity was found from Wikipedia, so let us know if anything is incorrect! 

Also: Sorry for how bad the quality of the photoset is. 

Edit: also I’m so sorry I clearly can’t count, this is only 19!
