Personal Quote:

Pretending to be a rich person is probably the hardest acting I've ever had to do. Crazy Rich Asians teaches audiences that that world doesn't end in Beverly Hills. It's even more extravagant out there. When you're in Singapore, you feel this air of opulence everywhere. I really wish I was as rich as (my character) Peik Lin. See more »

Trivia:

Her stage name is a play on the word awkward, which she felt best describes her. See more »
