HHH011 Interview with Lynn Chen
< 1 day ago
Lynn Chen is an actor, a writer, and a body image activist. I met Lynn when I moved to Los Angeles a couple years ago and she reached out through email, we had lunch together, and we became quick friends. In addition to her YouTube channel which mostly explores different restaurants around LA, she also hosts a monthly podcast called The Actor's Diet podcast (listen to my episode here!). You might recognize her from the award-winning -- and groundbreaking -- film Saving Face or from her many appearances on Law and Order (Jenny Wu) or All My Children (Regina). In this interview we discuss how she started acting, how she recovered from an eating disorder, and my new favorite deodorant.
