In XO, Kitty, Kitty moves to South Korea to go to school where her boyfriend studies. It’s also the same place that her late mother attended as a child. Her mother was a Korean lady. So, she has Korean ancestry obviously. Taking that into account, did they hire Anna Cathcart to play the part because she was from the same ethnic background as the character she was to portray? Could the actress be Korean too? Or did they just hire the actress because she looked Asian?

I mean, Lana Condor herself isn’t Korean and she was cast in the role. So, it’s possible that ethnicity is not common between the character and Anna Cathcart (the actress). However, she does look like she has an Asian heritage. Some wonder if she could be Vietnamese-born like Lana. But as it turns out, she is not.

Anna Cathcart does have Asian ancestry but she is not Korean. Her mother is of Chinese ancestry and her father is of Italian ancestry. So, she’s half-Chinese half-Italian. As it turned out, she is definitely of Asian ethnicity. By nationality, she is Canadian but by her ethnic background, she is not.
