“I am a woman. I had the story. We’ve done 485 episodes over 8 years. And the entire run, i kept thinking to myself, “The one real, true story in the family was the one i was hiding. The one thing that could really make a difference in people’s lives was in my should and i couldn’t tell that story.” - Bruce Jenner (The Interview)
We love and support you Bruce; we, as a fan base, are so proud of you, watching you throughout the last few years of our lives, grow and finally let yourself be free and to be whom you truly are.
Actor Randall Park takes the responsibility of portraying an Asian-American character on television very seriously. When he accepted the role of Louis Huang on the ABC comedy Fresh Off the Boat, Park wanted to make sure his portrayal avoided stereotypes and clichés.
“There were so few examples of Asian or Asian-American lead characters on American TV or even in the movies,” Park tells Fresh Air’s Ann Marie Baldonado. “And the ones that have existed for so long were either stereotypical or offensive in some way, or just not reflective of the lives of people in the community.”
Park, who is the son of Korean immigrants and has a background in Asian-American studies, was determined to “do good by the community” as an actor. Earlier in his career, the actor turned down roles that required him to speak with an accent, because he felt that the accents were often meant to be the butt of jokes.
“The problem is when a character represents nothing but just being foreign, and that accent is symbolic of the only thing that character represents,” Park explains.
Over time, Park began to differentiate between the accent as a joke and the accent as a part of a character. “I felt like with [Fresh Off the Boat’s] Louis and other characters that I’ve played, the accents were more a part organic to who the person was,” he says.
