The Pride of Malaysia in the Film Industry: Tan Sri Michelle Yeoh​

Ipoh-born actress Tan Sri Michelle Yeoh became the first Malaysian to win an Oscar at the Academy Awards in Los Angeles.

At the age of 61, she won a prize for her role in the blockbuster “Everything Everywhere All at Once.”

She dedicated the award to her mom in Malaysia, who has shown her non-stop support since the start of her career.

Yeoh is also now the first actress who identifies as Asian to win the Best Actress Award.
