“I remember when she said that, I just was like, ‘I don’t know what you mean.’ I straight up — you kind of have to call that out,” Condor said in an interview with Variety. “Also, Hello Kitty doesn’t have a mouth. [So as] a woman, I’m like, ‘One, you want me to be more like Hello Kitty, but she doesn’t have a voice.’ That’s so insulting to me.”
Condor said people in the entertainment industry are finally taking her more seriously following the recent success of Asian and Asian American films in Hollywood, including “Crazy Rich Asians,” “The Farewell,” and Golden Globes winner “Parasite.”
“We’re making strides, and I see that,” the actress said. “When I go into rooms now, I’m taken more seriously. However, those little blurbs remind me that there’s still so much more work to be done in the industry and to knock out that ignorance.”
In “P.S. I Still Love You”, Lara Jean, played by Condor, will continue to explore the struggles that some teenagers experience such as choosing between two love interests.
“To All The Boys: P.S. I Still Love You” will begin streaming on Netflix on Feb. 12.
Many people might not know this, but despite our large and loyal following which we are immensely grateful for, NextShark is still a small bootstrapped startup that runs on no outside funding or loans.
Everything you see today is built on the backs of warriors who have sacrificed opportunities to help give Asians all over the world a bigger voice.
However, we still face many trials and tribulations in our industry, from figuring out the most sustainable business model for independent media companies to facing the current COVID-19 pandemic decimating advertising revenues across the board.
We hope you consider making a contribution so we can continue to provide you with quality content that informs, educates and inspires the Asian community.
Even a $1 contribution goes a long way. Thank you for everyone’s support. We love you all and can’t appreciate you guys enough.
