Tess Paras’ viral Lordes spoof video “Typecast” brings stereotyping to the masses

Congrats to our friend Tess Paras who’s red hot with her recent Grimm aswang episode as well as this week’s viral “Typecast” video spoof of Lorde’s “Royals.”

In an interview with flpno.com she said “It’s the first time I have ever played a Filipino…as the 2nd largest Asian group, why aren’t we more reflected in television and film roles? I see Filipino actors booking Latino roles or given East Asian names, when there’s room for all of us to be portrayed.”
