Imagination Connoisseur, Brian Ng, notes that not all Asian actors look the same and thanks Rob for noticing.


Thank you for saying Henry Golding is borderline Asian. It can be dangerous racial territory to say this, but I know what you meant.

You mean he doesn’t look East Asian like our main man Tony Leung, and he doesn’t. That’s because his dad is British and his mom is native Malaysian. So he’s half white and half southeast Asian like Thai or Indonesian people.

Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

Tony Jaa and everyone in the rad are southeast Asian. But as one of the many Chinese imagination connoisseurs, I appreciate your love for our people.
