Killing Eve actress Sandra Oh has given a passionate speech at a Stop Asian Hate rally following last week’s Atlanta spa shootings in the US.
Oh said she was “proud to be Asian” and also discussed the “fear… and anger” within the community at the event near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on Saturday.
Asian women were among eight killed at three spas in Georgia on Tuesday.
“One thing that I know is that many in our community are very scared, and I understand that,” she said.
She continued: “One way to go through our fear is to reach out to our community.”
In a video shared on CBSN Pittsburgh, the actress, who was born in Canada to parents who emigrated from South Korea, expressed her gratitude to organisers and those in attendance for the “opportunity to stand together and feel each other”.
“For many of us in our community, this is the first time we are even able to voice our fear and our anger, and I really am so grateful for everyone willing to listen,” Oh told the crowd.
