Rae Sunshine Lee

This page of a child Asian actress has been taken over by someone who is not the Asian Child Actress From Mulligan Stew! This Needs to be Removed.

Hi Becky -

In order to assist, can you clarify what data is incorrect on the page?  Is it just the Resume page and photos that are incorrect?

Becky,
You appear to be correct that this credit has been incorrectly claimed by someone who was not in this show.

This is the Asian actress who played 'Kimmy' in the show Mulligan's Stew in 1977:



And this is the Sunshine Rae Lee who is currently claiming credit for this work on IMDb as she looked in 1979:



So, yes, unless the actress aged 10 years and changed ethnicity between 1977-1979, then this is very much the wrong person being credited for this work!

Accordingly I have done updates to remove this credit from Sunshine Rae Lee and assign this work to a new IMDb page for Sunshine Lee (II).

Becky,
Thank you for spotting this. As you see now, the credit has been removed from Rae Sunshine Lee and has been correctly assigned to a newly created page for the Vietnamese child actor Sunshine Lee.



It is clear that the IMDb staff totally agree with you on this correction and that the photographic evidence just confirmed that.

Interestingly, when I tried to discuss this credit with the older and less Vietnamese person currently claiming this work as their own, I was told:
have you not heard of stage makeup before? What are you, 18? If an African American can be made up to portray a Caucasian what makes you think a Caucasian can't play a Vietnamese girl?
I am not sure if this is a general question about my knowledge of make-up (which I confess is limited), or if Rae Sunshine Lee was suggesting that she wore make-up and utilized some form of visual effect to make her appear Vietnamese and to be a short child (I believe the Lord of the Rings films did the same to make same-sized actors appear to be bigger or smaller than one another).

Either way, the false credit has been removed and fixed - thank you again Becky for spotting it and raising it as an issue.
