Southern Fried Asian: Chen Tang

This episode of Southern Fried Asian was recorded in February before the coronavirus shut down everything. While Disney may have taken Mulan off its release schedule, we’re filling the void by releasing Keith’s conversation with one of the film’s stars, Chen Tang!

Chen talks about immigrating to Memphis as a small child and growing up identifying as a Southerner (2:00) and contrasts it with life in southern China (7:00). He then talks about the process of joining Disney’s live action adaptation of Mulan (12:00) and how he initially wanted to join the military rather than be an actor (19:00) — also don’t tell Disney that he prefers Star Trek to Star Wars (27:00)! Finally, Chen shares his love for Gus World Famous Fried Chicken and why the ones in L.A. don’t really count (29:00).
