  • Performing in ballet really, really helped me to be comfortable in my own skin... If I hadn't done ballet, I'd be so awkward in front of a camera!
  • The short-term dream is to be in the live-action Mulan. Of course I would want to be Mulan, but I'd play Peasant No. 2 if I had to. I think if you cut my hair, I could also look enough like a dude to play the dragon. I am willing to break that barrier for a dream to come true.
  • I really feel the lack of diversity and how people don't think Asian-Americans will gain revenue. It's very frustrating because I don't think that the roles aren't out there, they're just not written.
  • My parents are white -- I mean, white as day. When people see me out to dinner with my dad, I think they assume he is my agent. But I have never really felt like I was misplaced or that I was in the wrong family. I love my family and am so grateful to them because they are the reason I have any of this. If I hadn't been adopted, I would likely still be in Vietnam, working in a rice field.
  • If I could have one superpower I think it would be teleporting. I love the idea of skipping the 405 LA traffic.
  • I first got into acting when I took an acting class in New York City. I lived in New York for about five years and was always surrounded by so much art and culture. My family would take me to plays and musicals and I always kind of thought to myself that I could maybe do something like that in the future, that it all looked so exciting.
