She was great in "Provoked".

The Arabian Peninsula is not really Asia. Muhammed was from Mecca.

most people don't know that and consider him white. he does not count. he cannot even speak an Asian language or is culturally tied to it. He's more Dutch.
it's like saying the van Halen brothers are the most famous ones lol

now if i create a list just about asian stars then it would look like this:

1. bruce lee
2. jackie chan
3. psy
4. lucy liu
5. anggun

Pacquiao, easily a global star whose fame is matched by only a few Asian celebs. Whenever he has a big fight giant posters of him are posted in Times Square and MSG.

I could not understand your question, so I am going to assume you meant "name the five most well known Asian stars in your country." I will also assume you mean actors. I can only answer this question for my generation (50-65). Finally, I am going off the top of my head. I am sure others will come to mind once I "submit reply."

All five of these

  1. Miyoshi Umeki b. Japan
  2. Bruce Lee b. Hong Kong
  3. Nancy Kwan b. Hong Kong
  4. Lea Salonga b. Philippines
  5. Haing Ngor b. Cambodia

Each was/is very famous and Asian pioneers in US film/stage.
