✌🏼+☝🏼= Season 3!!! Vegas, here we GLOW! @glownetflix

My dad in like the early 90s, pointing at the television screen when I told him I want to be an actress one day, “Look at that screen, nobody on there looks like you or me. How can you be an actress?! It’s not for people like us. No.” My dreams have been put on hold so many times - the struggle has been real.

Imagine a world where you’ve never seen a movie at the theatres starring someone who looks like you. This reality sums up the significance of Crazy Rich Asians, because for people like me, it’s not just another movie, it’s a watershed moment. Together, we can all have an impact on whether or not Crazy Rich Asians becomes a hit by Hollywood standards. Its success can actually affect how we see ourselves portrayed onscreen in the future. The stakes are high because this movie is connected to the hopes and dreams of an identity that has long been marginalized. There are so many more stories to tell! As the film’s director Jon M. Chu said, ‘this is a movement’. I am so inspired by all the incredible artists in CRA for taking that brave leap in speaking out about a very important message – Representation matters.
Everyone please go see @crazyrichasians. It is history in the making - the first major studio film in 25 years centering Asian American leads, and an all Asian cast!
2018 dad is now my number one supporter and will always have a full on list of reasons why anything is possible when I doubt myself. If my super traditional Asian dad can change, Hollywood can too.
I can’t wait to see @crazyrichasians this weekend!

Thanks for noticing this @pinkboxstories ! After pointing this out, the @glownetflix creators allowed me to change the line from “four fried chicken restaurants” to “four donut shops” because these details matter.

Cambodians run the most independent donut shops in all of California. A refugee named Ted Ngoy opened his first donut shop in 1977, and it took off! He started helping other Cambodians open up donut shops, which helped a lot of Cambodian families survive in America!
An excerpt from a great @latimes article “From Sweet Success to Bitter Tears” about this phenomenon. “Ted Ngoy made a fortune in doughnuts. Over the years, he led thousands of his countrymen into the business. Through doughnuts, many Cambodians stepped out of isolation and into the American mainstream. And a new figure emerged on the California business landscape: the Cambodian doughnut-shop owner.” #Repost @pinkboxstories with @get_repost
Cambodian-American actress @ellewongster plays Jenny Chey in Netflix’s original series “GLOW.” In this scene, her character references the little known phenomenon of Cambodian-owned donut shops.
