Q: What originally attracted you to ONE CHILD?
A: I knew ONE CHILD would challenge me as an actor in many ways and that audiences would be affected by the story. It’s a rare chance for people to see the emotional struggles of an adoptee and his/her parents. I also fell in love with [writer] Guy Hibbert and [executive producer] Hilary Salmon when we all first met to discuss the project so there was really no reason to say no.
Adopted as a baby from China, college student, Mei, has had a content upbringing as the daughter of professors. When she’s contacted by her birth mother in China, she embarks on a journey of self discovery that is both dangerous and illuminating, testing her bonds to both families. Are you incredibly selfless or are you spoiled? Take this quiz to find.
