New York-native and multi-talented actress, writer, and producer Nora Lum – best known to the world as Awkwafina – met her TWO wax figures for the first time in her hometown Queens at Flushing Meadows-Corona Park, once home to the historic New York World’s Fair, amidst stunning views of the globally recognized local landmark The Unisphere.

Known for her incredible talent and infectious charm, Awkwafina has taken the entertainment world by storm over the years, earning rave reviews for her performances in Warner Bros. now-classic film Crazy Rich Asians and her hit Comedy Central series Nora From Queens.
