Agent, dancer and comedian Jadin Wong died March 30 in New York City of natural causes. She was 96.
Born Anna May Wong, she started dancing at age 5 in 1938 at Chinese-American nightclub Charlie Low’s Forbidden City.
During the 1950s, Wong entertained the troops in Europe for five years before returning to the U.S. and reinventing herself as a comedy act in the 1960s. She worked what was known as the “chop-suey circuit.”
A decade later, Wong opened her own talent agency, Jadin Wong Management, which specialized in handling Asian-American actors.
Wong also appeared as herself in several movies, such as “Year of the Dragon” in 1985 and “China Girl” in 1987.
Survivors include a brother.
