I'm not sure about that.  The Asian man was only in a few scenes.
Shooting schedules are carefully planned.  Cast members don't just
hang around the set drinking coffee all day if they are not needed.
It is possible that most of the cast never met Ms. Laurie while she 
was in drag.  Also, she supposedly couldn't speak any English and
did not mingle with other cast members.

I'm not saying that I wholeheartedly believe this story, I just
can't dismiss it so easily.
