ELLE Style Awards: Gemma Chan Is The Changemaker
admin - Sep 8, 2023 Interviews

The actor and advocate has much on her mind, and is channeling her energy into action.

Gemma Chan and I are walking down the idyllic leafy paths of Regent’s Park, one of her favourite spots in London, talking about how the pandemic strengthened our relationships with nature. ‘I think it’s probably something I took for granted before,’ she says.

She tells me about a family visit earlier that week to the BBC Earth Experience, an immersive exhibition narrated by David Attenborough. It seems to have made a deep impression on her, but it doesn’t take long for her tone to jump from wonder to concern as our conversation turns to the climate crisis. This summer has seen devastating heatwaves and wildfires in Europe and the US. It’s a lot, and Chan feels it. ‘I’m lying awake pretty much every night thinking about it,’ she says.

She reels off worrying statistics with sharp accuracy, including a 2017 study indicating that just 100 companies are responsible for 71% of global emissions. It’s just one of several facts she cites throughout our conversation – there’s much on her mind, so it comes as little surprise that her current read is Rafael Behr’s Politics: A Survivor’s Guide.

Nevertheless, she still has hope. Climate anxiety might be keeping her up at night, but she’s putting that energy into understanding the latest research and campaigns that can actually make a difference. ‘Changing the system, not perfecting our own lives, is the point,’ she says, quoting environmentalist Bill McKibben.

‘Changing the system’ aptly describes Chan’s work as both actor and advocate. Within the entertainment industry, she’s supported the Time’s Up initiative against sexual harrassment at work, and has shared her experiences of and has spoken about the lack of opportunities for East and Southeast Asian (ESEA) actors. Chan, 40, made her acting debut in 2006, after growing up in Bromley and studying law at Oxford University. Nearly two decades later, does she still feel there are challenges in speaking up? ‘It’s still inherently risky, I think, to bite the hand that feeds you. And there’s still a lot of bad behaviour in the industry. It’s very difficult to change that culture.’

Diablo IV adds Gemma Chan as a ‘delightfully wicked’ vampire hunter for Season of Blood
admin - Aug 25, 2023 Alerts , News

The acclaimed actress will be featured in season 2 of the popular role-playing game, which will be available on Oct. 17.

Diablo IV is upping the star power for “season 2,” with Eternals and Crazy Rich Asians star Gemma Chan joining the role-playing game as vampire hunter Erys.

“It’s been an incredible experience to enter into the world of dark fantasy and gaming as a voiceover artist for Diablo IV,” Chan says in a statement provided exclusively to EW. “I’ve always appreciated the power of storytelling and creating experiences that take it to new dimensions. I’m thrilled to be joining forces with Blizzard Entertainment for Diablo IV’s Season of Blood to bring the delightfully wicked Erys to life.”

Seen and heard in the brand-new trailer below, Chan’s Erys is a non-player character that Blizzard says “plays a significant role in the game’s storyline as a beacon of hope for players. With Erys’ support, players will navigate through a world filled with supernatural abilities, ensuring the safety of Sanctuary by combating a vampire threat and a formidable vampire lord, with the ultimate goal of restoring balance.”

“The Diablo IV team was delighted to work with Gemma Chan for Season of Blood,” adds Diablo franchise general manager Rod Fergusson. “Gemma’s voice and passion for storytelling has brought a dark authenticity to Erys, who will accompany players as they continue their adventures in Sanctuary.”

Chan’s involvement comes on the heels of the live-action Diablo IV trailer, which was co-directed by her Eternals director Chloé Zhao and released in May.

Season 1 of the game has seen 12 million players and 1.3 billion hours of playtime since its world premiere on June 6, according to Blizzard. Season 2 will be available on Oct. 17. [Source]

Gemma Chan Thinks More Women Should Be Behind the Camera
admin - Aug 17, 2023 Interviews

“There are still so many barriers to entry into the film industry.”

Six: This is the number of female directors debuting films in Competition at the 2023 Cannes Film Festival — and, according to The Hollywood Reporter, a record high. But it’s less impressive when you compare it to the 13 other films debuting in Competition, all of which are directed by men, and indicative of how far the film industry has to go in creating opportunities for people of color and women.

To help close this gap, L’Oréal Paris announced the return of its Lights on Women Award program to help highlight female filmmakers — and with it, enlisting Gemma Chan for help. “I’m so proud to support the Lights on Women Award,” the actor tells InStyle over Zoom. “It’s all about increasing opportunity and increasing visibility for female filmmakers.”

For a third time, this year’s Lights on Women Award is honoring a rising female filmmaker in the Short Films competition — not only to shine the spotlight on an up-and-coming director, but also to highlight the lack of opportunity available to women in film.

Chan, who’s served as a L’Oréal Paris ambassador for three years and counting, has long been an advocate for women’s rights. Below, she talks to InStyle about what more can be done to create opportunities for women in the industry, her go-to beauty routine at Cannes, and the one beauty trend she wishes would come back.

InStyle: The Lights on Women Award is a great step forward in creating equal opportunity for women in the film industry. What else can be down to highlight female creators in this space?

Gemma Chan: We still need to address some of the structural and systemic issues within the industry. Including more women and more people of color in decision-making positions is crucial. It’s also about creating the pipeline of talent that comes through. Sadly, there are still so many barriers to entry into the film industry, particularly if you’re from a background that’s not wealthy.

Across the board, it’s harder and harder for people to access and to be able to support themselves — particularly at the beginning of your career when you are not going to be earning very much. So that’s a real concern of mine. I think a lot more can still be done there.

With all that in mind, what advice do you have for anyone trying to break into the film industry?
