In aTeen Vogue article, Song revealed that she asked her managers to get her a meeting or audition for a role in the movie, with her management coming back and telling her that the Crazy Rich Asians team said she wasn't right for a role.

"I said, 'This character is in her late to mid-20s, an Asian American, and I can't even audition for it?

You're going to fault me for having worked my whole life?’ I was like, 'Where do I fit?'"
