With the record-breaking success of "Crazy Rich Asians," an Asian-American story has emerged into the international spotlight and has captured the world's attention. While a victory for greater representation in popular culture, this moment presents a challenge to the Asian-American community to build upon this achievement.

Simu Liu is a rising young actor, writer, and producer from Toronto who is best known for his breakthrough role as Jung on "Kim's Convenience," and he recently starred in Wong Fu Productions' miniseries, "Yappie."

In this moderated Q&A session, Simu hopes to share with the UCLA campus the insights he has learned from his unique journey towards Hollywood, and provide perspective on the future for Asian-Americans in film and television.
