“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”. - Lucy Liu
You have to look out for becoming trapped in a place where people want to see you all the time doing one thing.
i hope that every male character you have ever loved is played by Lucy Liu
okay I spent way too much time making this shitty graphic
but it made me happy
