RT Book, Whole DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 43542323 LA English T1 Asian American actors : oral histories from stage, screen, and television A1 Lee, Joann Faung Jean,, PB McFarland PP Jefferson, NC YR 2000 SN 0786407301 9780786407309 AB "The acting profession is increasingly drawing actors of Asian descent. Yet, even with the success of television programs (Martial Law), films (Mulan), and even Broadway plays (Miss Saigon) that include Asian characters, roles are still limited for these actors, and what roles crop up tend to be stereotypical. Despite these obstacles, many excellent Asian actors continue to seek their places on screen and stage. In this work both aspiring and established Asian American actors from both U.S. coasts talk about opportunities, prejudices and fears they face and the goals they set for themselves."--Jacket.
