Okano speaks at the 2017 New York Comic Con
|Born||c. 1994 (age 24–25)|
Lyrica Okano was born to parents who emigrated from Tokyo, Japan. They came to the United States in the early 1990s to join the punk rock scene. Her mother ended up becoming an IT tech and her father became a teacher who taught Japanese. At the age of four, she began taking Olympic gymnastics and nearly competed professionally. She stopped taking gymnastics when she was 14 when "[she] realized [she] didn't have any social skills". She was bullied in school for being the only Asian girl in her class and when she briefly transferred to Kyoto, she was bullied there too for her American mannerisms. Lyrica did manage to befriend a fellow actress, Yuka Taga, whom she would later collaborate with. Her first major role was as Nico Minoru on Runaways, a Hulu original series which was first released in 2017.
