    Loved his daughter in Kimberly (1999). Who among us hasn’t viewed her supporting role (possibly non-speaking) in that wildly popular straight-to-video film that has no Wikipedia entry and said, Willow Anwar should have a page on ethnicelebs?

    She’s the next Lilly Costner.

    The four stages of fame:
    1. Who is Willow Anwar?
    2. Get me Willow Anwar
    3. Get me a Willow Anwar ”type”
    4. Who is Willow Anwar?

      I know she is hardly famous. The reason I add many children to celebrities is because it’s interesting to see what ethnicity the children of famous people has. Very often it’s also an interesting one, and it shows what ethnicity celebrities spouses has without having them added (like Costner, whose wife is of Portuguese, Italian, and English desent). They might not always be celebrities in a strict sense, but I think think their famous parents would be enough to grant them the title “people in the public eye”, as used to be part of the EthniCelebs slogan. Penelope Disick has a page, even.

      But I do welcome your initiative to implement stricter rules for who is accepted here. Maybe you could start with removing Filipino lawyers from the site?
