10. That's a very interesting and thoughtful answer. Thanks.

For good or ill, marketability also plays a role, and (for now) western studios are still (primarily) marketing for western audiences. With that in mind, is there a current young Asian actress with name-recognition in the west and box office resume to match Ms. Johannson's?

That won't be the case for long, with the HUGE market in Asia gaining more and more power in western movie making, but that's where we are for now.

It also seems that the studio experimented with Asian-izing a western actress, but these plans were abandoned, hopefully when someone realized that it was a gross and racist thing to do.

Thanks for your answer!
