LOOK: Cole Sprouse collaborates with Noah Centineo, Lana Condor, and other stars on a special project

It looks like Cole Sprouse wanted to start the year by reminding us that aside from acting in Riverdale, he’s also quite talented behind the lens of a camera. Switching from his usual role as camera subject, he took to task photographing WSJ. Magazine’s new editorial. WSJ. Magazine says of their editorial: “We talked to 10 rising stars about progress, inclusion and their responsibilities moving forward.”

One of them is Lachlan Watson, best known as Susie, from Netflix’s “Sabrina”. She is quoted as saying: “As hard as it is, and as much pressure as it can be sometimes, I feel like everything I’ve gone through in my life to find my own identity has been preparing me to speak for so many people, in a big kind of way.”

Alisha Boe, from “13 Reasons Why”, is also featured in the editorial.

Lana Condor’s (To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before) caption reads: “Where we are in Hollywood is exciting because people have a higher standard of the way they should be treated.” Lana has previously been vocal about Asian representation in Hollywood and the roles given to Asians.

Laura Harrier, of Spider-Man: Homecoming fame, says: “It’s so easy to compare and want to change yourself…I spent a long time feeling like that.”

It’s great that all these stars came and worked together to weave a story that celebrates difference in a time of division. It shows their understanding that a shift towards diversity isn’t just an opportunity for them to benefit, but a responsibility for them to push for others as well.

Do you think we still need to push for Asian visibility in media? Let us know why!
