Charles Melton joins his The Sun Is Also a Star costar Yara Shahidi for Cosmopolitan’s May 2019 cover story.

Talking about being an Asian American lead, Melton shares, It almost seems like it’s not real for me, you know? Growing up, I never saw anybody who looked like me, really. Melton continues, So it’s very emotional for me…[After seeing Crazy Rich Asians] I cried seven times. It was just so emotional. Everyone was of Asian descent, and I was like, Wow. And I’m thinking about the movie I did with Yara, and Yara is Iranian and black. It’s very surreal. Read more at Cosmopolitan.com.
