Christopher Priest
I don’t feel typecast almost at all, and it could just be because I’m insensitive, but I doubt it. I think most of my roles I’ve gotten have very little to do with my ethnicity. I don’t feel that’s a limiting factor for my career.
Grace Park

You ask people what their ethnicity is, and a lot of Scots-Irish people either don’t know or if they know it they just don’t acknowledge it. It’s not something they really identify with. They’re just plain old Americans, plain vanilla. I don’t think they are a self-conscious voting bloc.

Katie Leung
Trump’s pardon of Arpaio may not get as much attention as Russian influence or Trump’s apparent obstruction of justice in the Mueller investigation.
