Lucy Liu Will Be Honored With Hollywood Walk Of Fame Star1 month ago by Amber Le in Movie News
Back in 1960, Anna May Wong was the first Asian actress to receive a Hollywood Star on the Walk of Fame. 17 years later, Lucy Liu becomes the second to be inducted, making history with the honor. Her star is the 11th awarded to a person of Asian descent out of the 2600 that are scattered throughout the pathway and it will be located near Wong’s.
Hollywood Walk of Fame producer Ana Martinez emphasized upon her excitement to have Liu join the others.
“We are excited to honor Lucy Liu and we placed her star next to the star of Anna May Wong, the first Chinese American actress to grace Hollywood’s film screens. When we place Walk of Famestars, we love to juxtapose Hollywood’s golden age icons with the role models who represent the exciting shifts taking place in the film industry whenever we can.”
Liu will be honored May 1 for her contributions to the film industry in Los Angeles.
