Tropes associated with this actress include:
- Celebrity Resemblance/Identical-Looking Asians: When Diane had been cast for her role as Fook Mi, she was asked if she knew any actresses who resembled her and suggested Carrie Ann Inaba, one of the then future judges of Dancing with the Stars. The resemblance to each other (especially after they were in costume) was uncanny.
