A meeting with Lo Pan

A big thanks to actor James Hong for coming to Comic Con Palm Springs! It was a real delight to be able to hear his perspective and to see his trademark sense of humor and acting live and in person. He's really one of the great elders of our community who helped to build the Asian American arts.

This year he discussed his career and the thirtieth anniversary of Big Trouble in Little China, and it became clear how pivotal his role and characterization of Lo Pan was to making it the cult classic it is today. There's so much to learn from him, and I hope more people take the time to appreciate his artistic legacy in the coming years ahead.

If you get a chance to see him again at an event, I absolutely recommend it!
