Ally Maki shows off her killer-watt smile on the new online cover for La Palme magazine.
The Wrecked actress opens up about Asian-Americans in Hollywood, beauty, and more. Check it:
On being an Asian-American in Hollywood: “Now more than ever, Asian Americans are speaking up and coming to the realization that if we come together fully supporting one another, our voices can be heard too much greater lengths. At the end of the day, the industry is tough no matter what and I always tell people if you do not 100% love and have passion for what you do, then go find that thing. I feel such an immense responsibility to keep pushing forward and kicking down doors in the industry to play roles that would have never even existed for me five years ago.”
On the things she’d have to have to survive on a deserted island: “My iPhone and Starbucks coffee.”
On her go-to beauty products: “Charlotte Tilbury’s Filmstar Bronze and Glow Palette. It is seriously fantastic. On Wrecked we wear very minimal makeup so I am constantly on the hunt for products that give that natural effervescent glow. This one takes the cake.”
Colton Haynes and Ally Maki pose backstage at the Ovadia & Sons fashion show during New York Fashion Week: Men’s S/S 2017 held at Skylight Clarkson Sq earlier in the week in New York City.

“And that’s a wrap on #nyfwm #cfda ! Had a blast & happy I got to celebrate my bday in NYC with so many fun people! Now it’s time for an allergy shot and maybe some sleep…I’m not sure I remember what sleep is anymore haha,” Colton shared on Instagram after a packed week.

We’re pretty sure that if you look up Best Friends Goals in the dictionary, Colton Haynes and Ally Maki‘s picture would be right there.
In honor of National Best Friends Day (June 8), Colton did the coolest and possibly sweetest thing — got a tattoo with her initial!
“I finally got my 1st tattoos! C is for Colton, A is for Ally @allymaki & it’s in a peace sign cause for the last 10 yrs, Ally & I have had the most peaceful relationship & I know we will be with each other till the end,” he wrote on Instagram.
Colton jokingly added, “Or until she gets annoyed with me and knocks me out of my walker lol. Love u so much Al! Ur the best friend a person could have…but no one else can have u but me lol.”
Ally is also pictured below with her Wrecked co-stars Brian Sacca and Jessica Lowe, with stars Finn Cole and Molly Gordon at the Animal Kingdom premiere on Wednesday night at The Rose Room in Venice, Calif.

There are just a little over two weeks until Ally Maki‘s new show, Wrecked, premieres on TBS!
JJJ caught up with the actress, who plays Jess in the series, about a group of people who, after their plane crashes on a remote island, cope with dangerous threats (many of which they cause).
Here are 10 Fun Facts that Ally dished that people might not know:
1. I am Japanese American.
2. I was born four days after Christmas, which makes me a Capricorn!
3. I moved to Los Angeles after being scouted by a talent manager in Seattle, WA and spent my high school years living in a house with other kid actors.
4. I think it would be so fun to play a strong female superhero one day! Wearing a cape with leggings sounds like my idea of the perfect day. The character would definitely have to have a sense of humor and some sort of strangely useful power like “deadly acrylic nails” or “can text people back using her mind.”
5. I was in an all girl pop rock band called “The Valli Girls” where I sang vocals and played the keytar. So embarrassing. Please don’t google it!
6. I’m a big klutz and terrible at any type of sport.
7. When I was three, I stole my grandma’s scissors and chopped my own bangs. I got into so much trouble, but I remember thinking I looked pretty fresh!
8. I love to write. When I was in high school, I interned at US Weekly where I wrote online content for their website.
9. TMNT (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) used to be my jam. My grandma used to record every episode on VHS, so my cousin and I could watch and rewatch them after school.
10. My first acting job in Los Angeles was on an episode of That’s So Raven where I worked with a giant dog.
Bonus fact! “About 89% of my life is spent in sweat pants and big T-shirts. I’m a big homebody!”

Colton Haynes just posted the sweetest birthday message to his best friend Ally Maki.
The 27-year-old Arrow star took to Instagram where he also shared a photo with her.
“Happy Birthday to the best friend a person could ask for @allymaki,” Colton wrote. “If I could write a book on how much this beautiful person has helped me over the last 9 yrs…we’d have a best seller on our hands.”
He continued, “She’s always been such a light in my life & makes me laugh more now than she did when we met in an audition room for a role she booked and I didn’t ha. I never would’ve gotten through this year without her being there for me & making sure I was sane. I love you so much Al.
