Racechanging makeups: Asian characters

Featuring actresses in yellowface makeups portraying Central Asian, East Asian and Southeast Asian characters. Most of the characters are from China, Japan or, what used to be called, the East Indies but it also features characters from Mongolia and the various ‘Stans’.

In most cases a white actress is playing a character who is intended to be believably Chinese or Japanese.

Deliberately non-realistic yellowface makeups are in a separate section.
