Watching Over the Moon, one can’t help but notice Cathy Ang, even in animated form. Ang’s performance as Fei Fei in Netflix’s cartoon effort from Glen Keane is layered and moving, really putting her on the map. Up until now, she’d be best known and most likely seen for a brief role on the show Ramy, but her career is about to blow up. As is a clear goal here at Awards Radar, we want to catch exciting talents on the way up. So, it was a pleasure to participate in Netflix’s virtual junket for Over the Moon, chatting with Ang about the work. You’ll be able to hear that next, hopefully getting you excited to watch the film in a few short days.
Below you can hear my conversation Over the Moon star Cathy Ang. For a little under 20 minutes, Ang and I talked about voice work, getting to see yourself animated on screen, and what the importance of a project like this truly represents. It’s clear that Ang sees incredible value in an inclusive story like this, and she won’t be alone. Plus, she’s also just a part of a wonderful animated movie, so it’s only fair that she’s especially proud of the work. Listen to the interview and expect plenty more from her once life gets back to normal. She’s a talented actress, with an ability to captivate in multiple forms, that’s for sure.
Enjoy my interview with Cathy Ang, and be sure to check out Over the Moon, on Netflix this week!
