She said: I learned [from making] The Farewell that it s an instinct for me not only in my performances, but in my real life. Because I don t want to face the heavy stuff. I want to keep it light. And Awkwafina invented her persona as a teenager to overcome stage fright because she felt it was a mask that gave her confidence. She told Entertainment Weekly magazine: I almost [equated] Awkwafina to this mask I would put on that just imbued confidence. The Crazy Rich Asians star admitted the two sides to her have gradually merged over the years. She said: People can say that Nora s the serious one and Awkwafina s this crazy comedy one, but for me, the older I get and the more I [do], they become one. I can t leave Awkwafina. Awkwafina is a part of me. I didn t create N I created Awkwafina. So it makes it powerful when I see her name somewhere. And Awkwafina is amazed by how much her career has progressed in recent years, including the awards buzz surrounding The Farewell.

I think that for every project, I do feel a little bit of that still, that kind of I m a nobody, who am I? But the star is more secure in herself now. She said: It s still a ride, but I feel like I have a better sense of self. I have a better idea of where this all may be going.
