Actor Lilan Bowden, known for playing Rebecca 'Bex' Mack in the comedy-drama series Andi Mack, is putting on the director's hat for the first time for a comedy short titled Becoming Eddie.

The film, written and produced by Ed Lee of G.I. Joe: Renegades series fame, will reportedly star Helen Hong and Charles King. Bowden and Lee have partnered to launch a fundraising campaign for this film which is set in1980s New Jersey.

Becoming Eddie is about a Korean-American boy who wants to become popular among his classmates, who are mostly white, and the consequences he faces when what he wishes for comes true. The makers feel that the project is made with the aim of representing the Asian-American actors in a better fashion on screen. 

"Ed, Helen, Joyce, and I have all been representing Asian Americans in media at the whims of the shows that have hired us, and this time, we're taking that power in our hands and telling the stories we want to. Ed's story is relatable but also so personal given his experience of growing up Asian American. I think this film will share a narrative that so many of us have, but don't get to see in media all that often," Bowden said in a statement.
