Celebrating Jadin Wong

Today marks the fourth anniversary of the passing of Jadin Wong, a co-star of I Drink Your Blood.  She died in 2010 at the ripe age of 96.  Seventy of those years were spent in show business, from dancing in nightclubs and on the street for spare change to being discovered doing such by Norman Foster and his wife Claudette Colbert to reinventing herself as one of the first Asian-American women stand-up comedians to, finally as a talent scout and agent for an entire generation of Asian-American performers.  None of the readily available sources I’ve been able to dig up on her life acknowledge her role in IDYB, which gives rise to a concern about if we’ve correctly matched the above career with the co-star of IDYB, but that’s a matter for another day. Today we celebrate Wong as we think we know her, mainly as Sue-Lin, part of a nihilistic satanist hippie crew laying waste to upstate New York as they all got rabies and died.  The end.
