Henry (formerly of Super Junior M) discussed the need for more racial diversity in Hollywood while discussing his role in A Dog’s Journey.
On May 7, the idol-actor guested on the KTLA 5 Morning News to talk about his upcoming Hollywood debut in the sequel to A Dog’s Purpose. Henry plays opposite Kathryn Prescott as her love interest, Trent.
Henry described A Dog’s Journey as “a film that talks about love in basically every sense”. That includes “love for your pets, love for your family, love for your loved ones”.
After watching a clip of himself in the movie, Henry shared what that felt like as an Asian actor.
It’s actually crazy because I know there aren’t many opportunities for Asians to be on the big screen here in Hollywood and I just think it’s a right step in the right direction, especially because we need more diversity in Hollywood. So, I’m really proud. I’ll try my best to be the best that I can.
To see Henry as Trent, check out A Dog’s Journey when it hits theatres on May 17.
