Anna May Wong
Anna May Wong (January 3, 1905-February 3, 1961) was a Chinese American actress, the first actor of Chinese ancestry to achieve prominence in Hollywood. Born Wong Liu Tsong in Los Angeles, California, she began playing bit parts as a child. Her ethnicity prevented her from getting choice parts, especially romantic ones, and often relegated her to stereotypical roles. Despite this, she had a number of significant film roles and toured extensively on the stage, including opposite Vincent Price in Princess Turandot , a stage version of Giacomo Puccini's opera.
