Blair's Girls: Kee Nang
Played by Charlotte Lewis
"The Golden Child" (1986 Film)
Charlotte Lewis, as Kee Nang in the hit 1986 film
"The Golden Child"
opposite Eddie Murphy, is a certified action starlet! Kee is a
terrific character on many levels. She has that exotic Asian
beauty (her character is Tibetan), tall and statuesque, and can
definitely muscle around the bad guys! She kicks, punches, tosses
punks around, and even does, as Eddie's character in the movie says,
"that thing...with the flip!". I like it that she doesn't fall
all over the male lead right away like a lot of film heroines do.
She eases up eventually, but at first is not all that impressed with
Eddie. Kee Nang has that dry wit which is actually pretty
funny. In addition, she can take care of herself and Eddie just
fine. She only has to get saved once when she sacrifices herself
in front of a crossbow dart to save Eddie. Kee Nang dies, but is
brought back to life by Eddie near the end of the film after the
villain is killed. Happy ending! Then she and Eddie are an
item after they've saved the world...which is a good thing!
Incidentally, Charlotte Lewis is from England, but her ethnic
background is Irish and Arabian.
