Lives in New York.
Martial arts are art forms and require a great deal of discipline and dedication I so admire people who focus their lives on it, because it's not an easy thing to do.
I'm so proud of my heritage, but yes, I think there's always a danger when people put you on a pedestal. Especially when you're just trying to live your life and pursue your dreams. The intention is not to represent Asian Americans but to be an Asian American who is working as an actress. People often confuse the two. When you are "representing," you have the burden of some people projecting their hopes onto you. This can eventually lead to a certain amount of disappointment. I strive to not deny myself experiences that open up to me. I hope to live without looking back in regret. If people want to join me on the ride, then I'm happy to have them along.
Everything I buy is vintage and smells funny. Maybe that's why I don't have a boyfriend.
When you work with chains or any kind of weapons, or just when you're using hand-to-hand combat, you are going to get hurt.
I try to distinguish my characters from each other.
I try to believe like I believed when I was five...when your heart tells you everything you need to know.
Once you embody the language, the character comes really naturally, especially when you put the costume on.
