Is Awkwafina going to go by Nora Lum?
The Crazy Rich Asians star opened up in an interview with the New York Times about her stage name, and the likelihood of dropping it for her real name.
“I don’t see it right now. That’s not to say that it’s not a possibility. I created Awkwafina when I was a kid. What she represents to me is more than a persona — in the very beginning, I did see her as the confident one, the side that comes out that gives Nora the panic attacks,” she explained.
“But as I’ve grown older I’ve come to really be grateful for that name and what I’ve seen it written on. To see her name on a chair back or on a call sheet, that means a lot to me. I don’t think that I could shed her right now.”
