Chinese soft power post

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brenda_Song#Early_life

Quote
Brenda Song was born in Carmichael, California, a suburb of Sacramento, to a Thai and Hmong family.[8] Her paternal grandparents were from the Xiong clan (熊; Xyooj in Hmong), but changed their last name to Song when the family immigrated to the United States.[8] Her parents were born in Thailand and met as adults in Sacramento. Her father works as a schoolteacher and her mother is a homemaker. She has two younger brothers, Timmy and Nathan.[9][10]

When she was six years old, Song moved with her mother to Los Angeles, California, to support her acting career; the rest of the family followed two years later. As a young girl, Song wanted to do ballet, while her younger brother wanted to take taekwondo. She said, "My mom only wanted to take us to one place," so they settled on taekwondo. Although Song cried all the way through her first class,[11] she now holds a black belt in taekwondo. Song was named an All-American Scholar in the ninth grade. She was homeschooled and earned a high school diploma at age 16,[9][8] then took courses at a community college. She graduated from the University of California, Berkeley in 2009,[2] majoring in psychology[8] and minoring in business.[12][13][14]

Quote
Former Disney star Brenda Song said in an interview released Wednesday that she wasn't given the opportunity to audition for "Crazy Rich Asians" because her "image was basically not Asian enough." But the blockbuster's director swiftly denied the claim on Twitter — and said he "feels horrible" she believes "this is the reason."


"A lot of people don't know this, but I never got to read for 'Crazy Rich Asians,' ever," she told Teen Vogue. The star explained that she asked her managers if she could audition for a part in the 2018 film or get a meeting with those involved, according to the outlet — but the actress said her team was told by the film that she wasn't right for a role in the project.

"Their reasoning behind that, what they said was that my image was basically not Asian enough, in not so many words. It broke my heart," she said. "I said, 'This character is in her late to mid-20s, an Asian American, and I can't even audition for it? I've auditioned for Caucasian roles my entire career, but this specific role, you're not going to let me do it?"
