Zitat des Tages von Gemma Chan:
As a means to an end, modelling was good, but I had to distance myself from it when I started working as an actress, because even though I wasn't high-profile, I found in my first write-ups that I'd be referred to as 'model Gemma Chan.'
Making a pretty picture, an image, is a completely different thing from acting to camera.
Italy - I love the late-night culture, hanging around the square at midnight with everyone, catching up and having a drink.
I hate the idea that people should listen to what actors have to say on certain issues more than anyone else. Actors have no more right to be heard than anyone.
Save the Children is also working to improve accommodation for refugee families living outside settlements. I met a family which had been living in a substandard building without windows, doors or a toilet.
I'm quite a rational person. I'm not very superstitious, but I really do enjoy horror as a genre.
My parents are wonderful, practical, sensible people, and the expectation was that I would study something academic.
It's really rare in TV not to think, 'Well, I've seen a version of this before.'
I've always admired the work that Save the Children does to improve the lives of children and their families all over the world.
I do feel a responsibility to try and raise awareness and to help tell the stories of those who may not otherwise have a voice.
I've been fortunate in my career, but, yes, there have been many times when I have been told my audition has been cancelled because they're only going to see white people.
I avoid flying Ryanair if I can. I know that everyone gives them a hard time, but there's a good reason for that.
From my experience, I would say no: actors of East Asian descent don't get the opportunities white actors do. I know that's inherently a problem in a country that produces a lot of period drama, but I have to fight so hard to get parts that don't have something to do with China.
I found a place under a bridge in Goa where you could have fresh crab and beer. It was nothing complicated, but delicious.
AI - not so some kind of far-off thing. It's part of our lives now, from your phone to everything you do. It makes our lives easier in a lot of ways.
I think 'Humans' is more about provoking the idea that there is a class of beings in society that we treat as less than... as subordinates; people who we treat badly and take for granted. Often they are the same people who work hard to keep the city going. We need to think about that.
