Cinema in Noir: The Evolution of the Asian Actress and a Look at Actresses Who've Gone MIA
Nearly twenty years after the big screen debut of the exquisite drama The Joy Luck Club, in which we saw a plethora of fine acting from a cast of talented women, we are still hard pressed to find quality representation for Asian female characters in cinema. As we conclude our coverage of Women's History Month on today's Cinema in Noir, we take a look at the evolution of the Asian actress as she continues to fight stereotypes and obscurity on the big screen.
Another topic we tackle on the show is actresses who don't get enough screen time. From Theresa Randle to Lisa Nicole Carson, we put an APB out on all the actresses who we're dying to see make a comeback.
