Tina Jung Signs
Tina Jung Signs, the star of “Strays,” has committed to two American projects. After completing her duties in Canada, the native Canadian, nominated for Best Actress for her outstanding performance in “Queen of the Morning Calm,” will begin filming in the United States.
Jung’s casting highlights the significance of increasing AAPI screen representation at a time when the awards season is dominated by international actors (such as Michelle Yeoh and Ke Huy Quan in “Everything Everwhere All at Once”).
Fans know Jung for her roles in Zac Efron’s “Firestarter,” “Strays,” and “Queen,” all of which were shown at the prestigious Whistler Film Festival. She is frequently regarded as the best Korean-Canadian actress working today. She has also appeared in “Suits,” “Shoresy,” and “Good Witch.”
New American Projects
The producers haven’t said much, but insiders in the industry say the two projects are very different from one another and offer a lot of opportunities for character work.
A “strong willed survivor on the run who is a key figure in the plot” is Jung’s role in the first project, which is pitched as a suspense thriller that shows complex relationships between characters in a dangerous world of exploitation, betrayal, power, and greed.
The other project Jung is working on is a romantic comedy that takes the audience on a journey about letting go of the past and trusting yourself to look forward to the unknowable future in order to find happiness.
Gravitas Ventures has distributed the producers’ most recent work, which is one of a number of independent films that have won awards.
Tina, according to Jung’s representatives, is one of Canada’s most exciting exports. They are excited to see her growth in this industry because of her unmatched dedication and focus on the craft.
Jung said that she is very excited to be joining these projects, both because of the fact that they are being portrayed as Asian characters on screen and that these roles are very different from one another. She places a high value on representation, and the authenticity of the character she portrays. She is aware that these projects will provide her with that opportunity.
