AACC Guest: Keiko Agena

The Hawaii-born native is recognized for her roles on Gilmore Girls, Better Call Saul, and The First.

The women I admire most in this business are Susan Sarandon, Bette Midler and Winona Ryder. Susan Sarandon because she’s, well, Susan Sarandon. Winona because she’s never compromised herself by showing her body in any of her love scenes, and Bette Midler because she has such a varied life. Her family, her marriage and her career are all priorities.
