We have been posting a few Asian based TV shows recently and adcmelb pointed out this one that some of you may like…
When I got on the internet back in the 90s, I discovered the true reason for its existence: namely, discovering beautiful Asian women from around the world. Back then my Holy Trinity was Jun Kusanagi, Natsuko Tohno and the subject of this long overdue post, Akira Fubuki.
Going back to 1973, here’s then-25ish character actress Momo Yashima playing an applicant for a housekeeping job in the home of Felix and Oscar on the classic US sitcom, The Odd Couple. Even though lines like “how do you make those radios so small?” and “I’ll take the cute Oriental from column A ..” may not go over well in today’s more culturally-sensitive world, this scene, enhanced with Miss Hanogi’s laugh, is a gem.
As with many Asian-American actresses of the 1970s; Miss Yashima, who’s still alive and well at 66, was restricted to character roles and appeared on M*A*S*H a time or two. See her credits at her IMDb page.
Liza Milano is a girl recommended to me by Travis, she represented France in the Miss Tropic Beauty pageant.
