Asian American Actors in Film, Television and Theater, An Ethnographic Case Study.
Race, Gender & Class, v8 n4 p176-84 2001
Examined how Asian American actors coped with the constraints of being minorities in an industry where physical appearance is crucial to success. Respondents' narratives reflected such coping strategies as not confronting issues of race, rationalizing that things are much better now for Asian American actors than in previous years, and believing that there is less competition for Asian roles.
