“When I was a kid, I genuinely didn’t think I’d get to be on TV without having blonde hair and blue eyes. When I first got to L.A. I was told I wasn’t “white enough to be the lead or Asian enough to be best friend.” And I thought that was true! It’s crazy, in hindsight, how racist that really was, and I accepted it and thought that it was normal and okay. The show has been so empowering for me in that way, to have young people of all different backgrounds come up to me and tell me they feel they can be an actor, because of me. It’s incredible to be that face.”
