We caught up with Lucille Soong, who plays Grandma Huang on ABC’s Fresh Off The Boat. Since the first season, her character has charmed audiences with her humor, hipness, and Mandarin-speaking ways. The show is now in its fourth season and airs on Monday nights.
Soong answered some questions via email.
What made you want to become an actor?
I am an accidental actress. It just happened in my life. When I moved from Hong Kong to London, I was walking to shop for grocery in the street. An agent chased me and approached me to go to Spain for a movie’ 55 days at Peking. This is the second time I was put in a movie so it seemed that was my fate.
I am happy that my character is so interesting and I enjoy being a grandma. On T.V. Ha Ha !!
