Finding Asian-ness in unexpected places...
Remember the old series Saved by the Bell? Its all-American boy-next-door hero Zack Morris was played by Mark-Paul Gosselaar, who has since turned his talents to roles on NYPD Blue and Raising the Bar. Gosselaar was born in California but his father was Dutch and his mother was Dutch/Indonesian.
Happen to catch Terminator:Salvation? You may have noticed Moon Bloodgood, who is surely beloved of nerds everywhere for not only being hot, but having a name that sounds straight out of Dungeons and Dragons (I reckon she'd be a 8th level half-elf ranger - yes I'm a nerd too). She's part Korean on her mother's side, while her Dad has Dutch and Irish ancestry.
Jamie Durie, Sydney-born with a white Australian father and Sri Lankan mother, has come along way from his early days as a male stripper. From hosting gardening and home renovation shows in Australia, he regularly featured on Oprah and now hosts The Victory Garden in the US.
You'd probably need to be a hardcore hoops fan to remember Rex Walters; he had a 7-year career in the NBA with various teams, averaging around 4 points a game, but didn't really live up to the expectations of a 16th draft pick. Still, it's more than I've ever done. Walters' mother is Japanese, and he remains one of the very few Asian-Americans to play at NBA level. He's now the head coach at the University of San Francisco.
Dance DJ/Producer Armand van Helden is Boston-born, with a Dutch/Indonesian father and French/Lebanese mother. He's recently produced a UK Number 1 hit in Dizzee Rascal's Bonkers, and is best known for his remix of Tori Amos' Professional Widow and his own track You Don't Know Me. My personal fave isthe soulful house epic Flowerz (below).
