If you feel like you’re stuck watching the same few actresses in movies, we suggest you start watching more movies and broaden your horizons. But we get it, movies and TV-series are coming out all the time, and these days it’s not enough to just flick through the TV channels, there are multiple streaming services to pick from too. So here’s how we’re going to make this easy for you. Here are some of the most talented Asian actresses under 25 and the series and movies you should see them in.
If you loved Moana as much as I did you’ll already be a huge fan of Auli’i Cravalho, who voiced our favorite Disney Princess. You’ve heard how good she is at singing and voice acting in Moana, but you’ll love her even more once you see her in the Netflix drama “All Together Now”. You also might’ve seen her in “Rise” on NBC and “Weird City” on Youtube Premium.
If this girl seems familiar to you it’s because she’s a freaking superstar. Lana is the main heroine of the “To All The Boys” film series, and she played Jubilee in “X-Men: Apocalypse”. Lana also studied ballet and performing arts, so she’s a true triple threat, she can sing, dance, and act and we can’t wait to see her upcoming movie “Moonshot”.
You know her best from playing Lola on “Fuller House” ( the Netflix remake of an old classic). You also probably saw her in “Always Be My Maybe”, where she played the 15-year old Sasha. And you can see her playing a princess in the Disney+ movie “Secret Society of Second-Born Royals.”
Hailee is only 24 but she’s already been nominated for all the super prestigious awards. She’s been nominated for an Oscar, BAFTA, SAG Award, and a Golden Globe. The first three nominations are all for her role in “True Grit” and the Golden Globe nomination was for her role in “The Edge of Seventeen”. You’ve seen her in Ender’s Game, Pitch Perfect movies, and Begin Again. She’s also a singer, songwriter, and model. Is there anything this girl can’t do?
