For Hong Kong-born, New York-raised actor Celia Au, she is determined to be the best actor she can be. Her appearances in the indie comedy Made in Chinatown and the Netflix series Wu Assassins show her love of her work. In her film In a New York Minute, Celia plays Nina, a woman who works as an escort at a karaoke club to pay for her father’s medical expenses, all while wanting to be free from their iron grip and start a life with the love of her life. Celia and I talk about the film as well as delve in a bit in our mutual love of Hong Kong cinema.

In a New York Minute will be released on Digital on May 3 from Gravitas Ventures. Special Thanks to October Coast PR and Celia Au for making this interview possible.
