Lana Condor Wants To Continue Telling Asian-American Stories With Purpose

Lana Condor Wants To Continue Telling Asian-American Stories With Purpose

Lana Condor is cool and colorful in a pink trench on the January 2020 issue of Teen Vogue.

Here’s what the 22-year-old actress had to say:

On using her voice: “I feel proud to use my voice and continue to tell people that the Asian-American experience is not one experience alone. It’s something that I don’t plan on ever stopping. Making TV and movies is awesome, but if you have a purpose behind it, it’s even better.”

On a scene in P.S. I Still Love You where Peter and Lara Jean have the sex talk:
“I hope that young people feel less alone in having conversations about safe sex. It’s totally fine to wait or don’t wait, but at least know that it’s your choice and your decision to do that. I think what I’m most proud of in the sequel is that Lara Jean is having a conversation with Peter.”

On returning to the orphanage in Vietnam where she was adopted: “I was terrified people would look at me and be like, ‘Why were you given a chance?’ I was afraid people were going to think that my parents weren’t my parents. But I was received with an abundance of love. All of a sudden, when we got to Vietnam, for the first time in my life I felt really still and then grounded, rooted.”
