Driving Force: how Gemma Chan is using fame to share untold stories
admin - Jul 29, 2022 Interviews

The actor, producer and activist is a real force for change

It’s the hottest day of the year so far, and Gemma Chan and I are climbing a hill on Hampstead Heath in search of the perfect picnic spot. Chan, summer-fresh in a light charcoal Cos jumpsuit, slips off her white Birkenstocks and settles down under a cluster of trees in the dappled shade to help unpack the food. Her eyes widen when she happens upon the macarons (“I’ve got my eye on these”), but she goes in for a scone– cream first, then jam; a just reward after our ascent.

It isn’t every day you have a picnic with a superstar, as Chan unquestionably is: this year alone, she is in one of the most anticipated films of 2022, Don’t Worry Darling with Florence Pugh and Harry Styles, and Extrapolations, the climate-change series with an all-star cast on Apple TV+. She recently achieved what could be considered the holy grail of Hollywood: landing the lead in a Marvel film – Eternals, a blockbuster that grossed £330 million– after being personally sought out by the studio boss Kevin Feige. As Sersi, she offered an empathetic, unconventional take on a super-heroine in a performance that came swiftly after her turn as the voice of the villainous Namaari, in Disney’s Raya and the Last Dragon.

Chan is at her best when inhabiting characters whose veneer of perfection disguises deep emotional scars, as she did in Crazy Rich Asians with her portrayal of Astrid Leong, the billionaire heiress broken by her husband’s affair. She created someone wholly compelling in her vulnerability – so much so that there will now be a spin-off dedicated to Astrid. In Don’t Worry Darling, she plays Shelley, the wife of a cult-like leader (Chris Pine at his most charismatic and sinister), who runs the Victory Project, a utopian community in mid-century America. Chan thrills with menace, armed with a smile that betrays her icy core.

“For the role, I needed someone with an almost Cleopatra-like aura, exquisitely composed with a ferocity brewing underneath,” the film’s director Olivia Wilde tells me. “I was stunned by Gemma’s otherworldly grace, combined with her wicked sense of humour, which disarms you so you’re capable of speaking to someone so intensely beautiful.”

L’Oreal Paris, the official partner of the Cannes Film Festival, is a feminist brand that has been empowering women for 25 years. Last year, L’Oreal Paris took this effort to the next level and introduced a special annual award program for promising short filmmakers, the Lights On Women Award.

The brand announced the second annual winner of the award chosen from the Short Films Competition and La Cinef’s selection at Cannes. Mai Vu of Vietnam won first place for her 9-minute film, Spring Roll Dream, which depicted the simple yet profound importance of family tradition. The final choice was announced in person by Academy Award-winner, L’Oreal Paris spokesperson and Juror of the 2022 edition, Kate Winslet, during a special prize ceremony at the Jeune Cinéma gala dinner held at the Cannes Film Festival on May 27, 2022.

“Sometimes a simple tale about the purity of a family tradition can mean the most of all,” says Kate Winslet, of Vu’s winning film.

“It is a sweet reminder that if we just take a step away from the chaos of daily life and let go of the emotional structures and boundaries that we create for ourselves and our children, we can reconnect with the things that matter most. We can remind ourselves that the smallest of pleasures can serve to anchor us in who we truly are. All these beautiful emotions are delicately displayed in Mai Vu’s exquisite film, Spring Roll Dream.”

Delphine Viguier-Hovasse, Global Brand President, L’Oreal Paris, adds, “This second edition of the Lights On Women Award represents L’Oreal Paris’ long-standing commitment to achieving greater gender balance in cinema. This year marks 25 years of L’Oreal Paris at Cannes, and we remain dedicated to creating a future where women may take their rightful place in the industry.”

This powerful night featured legendary actresses and speakers from L’Oreal Paris, Helen Mirren, Gemma Chan, Andie MacDowell, Camille Razat and Aja Naomi King.

At the sidelines of the event IANSlife caught up with actress Gemma Chan who celebrated and supported this next generation of talented female filmmakers.
