About Adele LIM

Leaving Malaysia to study film and theatre in the US, Adele Lim’s plans to return to her home country took a backseat to the opportunity to try a writing career in Los Angeles. Almost 25 years later, she has established herself as a veteran screenwriter whose credits include Crazy Rich Asians and Raya and the Last Dragon for Disney. Fired up by America’s comparative lack of female empowerment, she has also made it her mission to globalise Asian female “kickass-ery”. We chat to Adele about normalising the fierce working matriarchy, the vibrant immigrant communities of LA and her favorite pockets of the city.
