Kara Wang has crossed a path familiar with many Asian actors in Hollywood who are currently working abroad and in the United States to see sustained work. While promoting her film, she learned to Bleeding Cool about her journey in Hong Kong, and how she saw bigger opportunities expanded in 2015. Upon her recent success, the actress also landed a role in the much-anticipated Paramount sequel, naming it "a once-in-a-life opportunity."

So now, I think that when we''re talking about what we''re doing in our careers now, it''s very important to keep pushing. ''It''s pretty cool to still see people like Michelle Yeoh and Sandra Oh who are doing fantastic jobs year after year, and they''re really breaking the barriers."
