Why?

Why are the sons of Asian men and White women playing the sons of White men and Asian women on TV?

Actor Takaya Honda plays the role of Klaus Thomson, a half- Japanese half-Scandinavian guy in the Australian Sitcom The Family Law.

Takaya Honda’s father is Japanese and his mother is white Australian. Both his parents coached gymnastics and his father Kazuya Honda was a former coach of the Australian National Women’s Artistic Gymnastics.

On the show “Neighbors,” he is joined against by another AMWF Hapa, Tim Kano.

Unusual despite being outnumber 50:1, AMWF Hapas even manage to represent WMAF Hapas.
