10 Celebrities Of Asian Descent Giving Hollywood Some Much-Needed Diversity

Even though it’s home to over half of the world’s population, Asian and its people are rarely represented in neither the small nor the big screen.

However, with the release of hit-movies like To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before and Crazy Rich Asians, and Sandra Oh’s historic Emmy nomination, some Asian stars who’ve been seriously underrated for a long time are finally starting to get the recognition for their talent (and, why not, their good looks too) they deserve.

Little by little, one role at a time, actors of Chinese, Vietnamese, Pilipino and Korean descent are giving Hollywood the much-needed diversity it’s been lacking for years, proving there’s no need to white-wash every imaginable role originally created for Asian people (or, in other words, cast Scarlett Johansson), because, well, there’s plenty of talented stars willing to take the job and do it well!

So here’s to a new era studded by Asian celebrities! Click through our photo gallery above to see 10 celebrities of Asian descent who have taken Hollywood by surprise.
