Token Asian Alert: Mamma Mia! the movie

I saw the craptastic movie Mamma Mia a few weekends ago…(which I highly recommend as long as you leave your good taste & bad manners at the door). Abba songs, Colin Firth wearing a spiked a dog collar, Meryl Streep singing, Christine Baranski in a cougar-licious role seducing a young man, sparkling Greek coastlines, what could not be fabulous about this movie?

What I certainly didn’t expect, however, was that I could swear I spotted an Asian in the ensemble… I saw her once, in the bachelorette (or “hen”) party scene show in the photo. I stayed for the credits to see who it could potentially have been that I saw briefly on the screen — my best guess is that it is Rebecca Lee. I was impressed, for a large Hollywood movie, the cast was pretty diverse (at least among the ensemble).

Did anyone else see the Asian actress in the movie? I didn’t imagine it, did I?

About Jen

I’m a Korean-American living in the bay area, I studied public health and social work in grad school, and I have an obsession for anything theater related, especially ballet and Broadway musicals. I just spent three years in NYC so I am still adjusting to normal winter weather and having a car, and most of the time, I am busy funding my passion for theater with a full-time job in healthcare public relations. On any given day, you can find me watching Project Runway, shopping, doing yoga, skipping to the theater, or looking for the perfect cocktail.
