For too long, we’ve seen Asian men portrayed as meek computer geeks with no sex appeal and no social currency. Well, no more! Asian dudes with sex appeal, gusto, and smarts to boot are here, and they’re not going away.
Lewis Tan has pushed Asian-American representation forward by leaps and bounds and takes seriously his responsibility.
“It is bigger than me and other actors. It is about the next generation feeling represented correctly and inspiring them to create and be heroes in their own story... I am going to continue to do my best to use my platform and skills to inspire others and rep for my people. Count on that.”
