On the importance of his role: “I’m just glad that I can give everyone a voice… Asians are represented I think by less than 3 percent in entertainment, LGBTQ being less than 1 percent, so for them to combine both of those categories into one role is super special, and I’m so happy that I can take that on.”
On the most challenging thing about playing his character: “I just hope I do it right. I just hope the way I do it is accepted by everyone… I want to take these two categories and make everyone look strong. I want to get rid of that stereotype and give them a different look on the LGBTQ community. I just hope I’m making everyone proud.”
