Crazy Rich Asians took over the box office these past few weeks and star of the film Pierre PNG came through to the Power 106 Perrier® & Juice Studios to talk about his role as Michael Teo in the major movie.
As one of the only films of recent that features an all Asian cast, Pierre describes the significance of having cultural representation in the film industry and how it felt filming on set with the cast.
There’s this unifying thing, being Asian, and all of us being on set. We all speak with different accents, but, we are all tight. Being Asian and having for the longest time being casted as somebody’s boyfriend, and somebody’s, just like a shadow, in a lot of Hollywood movies…this is really big, you know. All of us holding very key roles. All of us have a story to tell.
Speaking on his own career, PNG says, “I’m very thankful. I pray a lot and I know that this could not have happened, by any chance of my own effort.”
