Recently I had the pleasure of interviewing Chinese actress Summer Qing. She has appeared in films The Founding of a Republic, Flash Point, and can be seen in the current mind bending hit Looper as Old Joe’s Wife. In this interview Summer talks about her origins as an actress, her role in Looper, the differences between a Chinese movie production versus an American one, and even tells us her favorite comic book movie!
What inspired you to become an actress?
Because I can. LOL!
Believe it or not, there wasn’t any inspiration for me to become an actress until I actually enrolled in the film school. Only after I entered the Beijing Film Academy did I learn such great actors’ names as Meryl Streep and Robert De Niro. Then I was inspired to become an actress.
