Slowly throughout the ’90s, Asian women started landing breakout roles.
As the years continued, I got older, and so did the notion of hoping to see more young Asian women in leading roles.
But TV in 2020 (actually, the streaming service Netflix) brought to life so many amazing young Asian leading ladies.
She didn’t embody the stereotypical middle school Asian girl: she wasn’t super smart and she wasn’t shy, but she was a main character!
So, as much as 2020 has been like “Alexander’s Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad YEAR,” it has produced some great young Asian leading ladies.
