Arden Cho Decides Not to Appear In ‘Teen Wolf’ Movie Due to Pay Inequality
Arden Cho is a 36 year old American actress who’s all set to appear in the upcoming legal drama series Partner Track by Netflix.
After being asked about the reason why she declined to appear in the film, she stated that she’s not the only actress of color to suffer from the issue of pay inequality.
She said, “I could probably, off the top of my head, think of over 10 Asian-American actors I know who were paid significantly less than their counterparts,” Cho shared. “Sometimes you don’t have a choice to say ‘no.’ Sometimes you just need it. You’ve got bills to pay.”
Arden Cho in her statement stated that she wish her decision could help other actresses of color who would probably have to deal with such an issue in the future. “I wasn’t saying ‘no’ necessarily for me or because I was angry,” Cho said. “I was saying ‘no’ because I hope that there will be more equality in the future.”
Cho played the role of kitsune Kira Yukimura who’s the love interest for Scott McCall (Tyler Posey). The actress had played the above character on 3 seasons of Teen Wolf.
On the other hand O’Brien, who played the character of Stiles Stilinski is also facing the same issue due to which she won’t be returning to the film to be directed and written by Jeff Davis.
In the meanwhile, MGM’s Orion Television and MTV Entertainment Studios don’t have a premiere date at present.
