Lana Condor Leads Netflix’s New AAPI Spotlight
Aptly timed with Asian American and Pacific Islanders Heritage Month, ICM Partners’ client Lana Condor has lent her star power to help Netflix launch their new collection.
The Asian American Pacific Islanders Stories Collection includes a wide range of documentaries, feature films, and television series that both star and were created by AAPI talent, including Condor’s breakout film, the Netflix Original “To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before”. To promote the launch of the collection, Condor joined an all-star ensemble cast of AAPI talent for a campaign that dispels harmful stereotypes and instead celebrates the diverse and unparalleled talent representing the Asian diaspora in film and television.
Condor frequently uses her platform to speak out about the increase in racist attacks on the AAPI community. In a recent town hall discussion hosted by ICM Partners in April—Condor joined Sherry Cola, Cecilia Wang from the ACLU, and Dr. Ellen Wu Director of Asian American Studies at Indiana University, to discuss the discrimination they have personally faced within the entertainment industry. She was recently hosted on The Meteor’s “21 for ’21,” where Hilary Clinton interviews her about what it was like growing up in a predominantly white family as an adopted Asian-woman—and what it means to celebrate diversity amidst anti-Asian hate crimes.
The actress is currently working on the upcoming HBO Max film “Moonshot” – a romantic, science fiction fusion that follows the story of two college students sneaking onto a space shuttle to Mars in hopes of reuniting with their significant others – where she will be starring alongside Cole Sprouse.
