Kiwi actor and Mulan star Yoson An tackles a modern love story

From Nine To Noon, 10:10 am on 13 February 2024

Last year Yoson An was on the big screen, strapped in a cockpit next to Gerard Butler trying to prevent a passenger jet crashing into a Philippine island overrun by murderous rebels. That was in the action thriller Plane. Kiwi audiences may know him as Jackson in the locally-made comedy Creamerie or Sook Yongsheng in the 19th century gold-rush mystery The Luminaries. The Chinese-born Kiwi actor has a new show out today on Prime Video called Five Blind Dates, in which he plays love-interest Richard. Yoson's no stranger to playing a heart-throb, he had audiences swooning over his role of Chen Honghui in Disney's blockbuster Mulan. Usually based in LA, he's back home in Tamaki Makaurau for the summer and joins Kathryn to talk about his career, life in Hollywood and whether he'd ever go on a blind date.
