Moi: How did you get involved with Audrey & Dre? What made you decide this was the project for you?I'm having a quite a bit of fun interviewing the cast members of this show. Their emails show they had a lot of fun meeting and working with one another. I still have a few more to go, and I believe Audrey Kelley will have a couple more people for me to interview after that. Stay tuned, ladies!
Alex: Pretty simple - I auditioned for it because it sounded like an interesting project, and they offered me a role. Plus, they seemed like good-hearted people, and I like working with good-hearted people. Good people, good karma.
We haven’t gotten to see your character in the previews yet. What can you tell me about “Denison”?
He'll talk about race and relationships in the abstract as a way to cope with what he's experienced personally. In other words, he'll talk about how "Asian men" are perceived as unattractive, as opposed to talking about how he himself was perceived as unattractive in his own life.
Ms. Kelley and Ms. Hunt were both surprised by the size of the market for Blasian media. Were you surprised by the overwhelming interest as well?
I never really heard about it before either, so I'm surprised myself. It's all good though!
Why do you think there’s such an interest in the Blasian genre?
Love is love I guess, and like any color combo it's probably been happening for a while. It's just that while every other color combo has been exposed to the media, Blasian hasn't until recently, so it seems "novel" at least for now. In most major cities in the US, there's tons of people from many backgrounds, so it's bound to happen.
