We're ranking the greatest Asian characters in film and TV. This list includes a diverse range of actors and actresses - and even a few cartoon characters. While proper Asian representation in Hollywood has been lacking for quite some time, newer shows and movies have started featured more diverse cast members than ever before. Characters from The Big Bang Theory, The Walking Dead, and The Office feature pivotal Asian characters. In newer shows like Fresh Off the Boat, the entire main cast is Asian.

Not to be outdone, blockbuster films like Harold and Kumar, Mean Girls, and Crazy Rich Asians feature an eclectic roster full of Asian actors and actresses. Of course, there's also a generous helping of Asian inclusion in animated films and television as well. Which of these characters is your favorite?

Vote up your favorite characters and be sure to add your own if they’re missing from the list.
