Do Asian actresses get to play anything but Geishas or Ball Busting Tiger Mom types?
the DA is Asian. and there have been Chinese/Japanese/Korean/etc actresses playing all sorts of roles on other shows - ER & Grey's Anatomy, for instance, both had Asian doctors.
I think Ciara's teacher was Asian too. Could be mis-remembering though.
You're welcome to disagree with me, but when I was referring to the ball-busting Tiger Mom type, I was referring to the DA. It's also a very common stereotype of Asian women and many of the roles you mention fit right into it. Understand what I was saying and then disagree.
I understand what you're saying I was just adding to what the other person was commenting.

I don't see how any of these characters would be different if white/black/other. I mean not that I think Days is overly sensitive to counteracting stereotypes, I don't think they are, but I'm not seeing the issue here either.
