Artemis was based on a real girl? What do you know about her?
Yep! She’s based on animator/director Victor Cook's daughter, Hanah, who's half Korean and half white. She has naturally blonde hair and grey eyes.
Quote from Greg Weisman:
Victor Cook’s daughter is naturally blonde, though she’s one-half Korean on BOTH parents’ side, making her one-half Asian total. She, in part, served as one of our inspirations for Artemis.
So will the ignorant fucks out there kindly stop white washing her fancast.
The fact that people NEED her to be based on a real person (and otherwise need proof that not all POCs have black hair and brown eyes) to respect the character design when doing fanart or fancasting is just SAD.
That said, Ms. Cook looks really cool and I can see why she was one of the design inspirations. :)
