Kelly Marie Tran spoke about being bullied for her race in an emotional new piece for the New York Times.

The 29-year-old, who played Rose Tico in last year’s “Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi”, said her real name is Loan and admitted her parents had also changed their identities to fit in with American culture.

She wrote about the words and the stories that had been “carefully crafted by a society that was built to uphold the power of one type of person — one sex, one skin tone, one existence.”

Tran continued, “As much as I hate to admit it, I started blaming myself. I thought, Oh, maybe if I was thinner or Maybe if I grow out my hair and, worst of all, Maybe if I wasn’t Asian.

“For months, I went down a spiral of self-hate, into the darkest recesses of my mind, places where I tore myself apart, where I put their words above my own self-worth.”

She added that it was then that she realized she had been “lied to.”

“I had been brainwashed into believing that my existence was limited to the boundaries of another person’s approval.

“I had been tricked into thinking that my body was not my own, that I was beautiful only if someone else believed it, regardless of my own opinion.

“I had been told and retold this by everyone: by the media, by Hollywood, by companies that profited from my insecurities, manipulating me so that I would buy their clothes, their makeup, their shoes, in order to fill a void that was perpetuated by them in the first place.”

Tran became the first woman of colour to have a leading role in a “Star Wars” movie, as well as being the first Asian woman to appear on the cover of Vanity Fair.

She finished off her op-ed piece by vowing that she was “just getting started.”

The actress’ comments come after she left Instagram earlier this year after reportedly facing months of harassment due to her gender and racial background.
