“Eternals” Star Gemma Chan for Porter Magazine

Posted on November 03, 2021

“Eternals” star Gemma Chan covers the latest issue of  Porter magazine photographed by Annie Lai and styled by Marquessa Lucas-Box.




Chan credits the Asian community in media, fashion and beyond with helping her to reconnect with her roots: “One of the nicest things about getting older has been reconnecting and feeling like I can embrace and celebrate the Asian side of my heritage,” she says. “I’ve met so many incredible people, so many more Asians than I knew when I was growing up, in my line of work.”

Noting the significance she feels in having embarked on a career in storytelling and the arts, she says that it “ensures that we have our stories told and ensures that we have a place in popular culture and consciousnesses… With the absence of that, stereotypes and prejudices grow and it’s incredibly important that we… [as] any group that has been excluded or marginalized before, get to define our own narratives.”
