Such is the wealth of female talents on TV in this era, it’s become a real pleasure to fawn over the luscious Cindy Chu who recently guest-starred on “Hawaii Five-0”. In what was one of her most emotional roles to date, Cindy aces her performance as Cammy Lim, a woman who happens to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. Whilst assisting her mother Mei Lin (Karen Huie) during a acupuncture session with a client, things start to go south for them when Cammy unwittingly becomes a witness to a mob murder. Cindy accessed quite the gamut of emotions for her role as Cammy, from throes of panicked fear to fighting for her freedom and an ending filled with grief-stricken sentiments.
Here’s Cindy revealing a little about her experience working on the “Hawaii Five-O” Episode Ka Hana A Ka Makua, O Ka Hana No Ia A Keiki:
No artificial tears were harmed in the making of this episode. It was all 100% real crying. I had to cry so many times, but I did it! That final scene was the first scene I filmed on my first day actually, and I didn’t even know who was playing my mother yet and the wreathed photo was actually just a green rectangle!
It’s so positive to see Cindy representing character driven Asian women who have a multi-layered story to tell. Cindy has already shared screen time with one of my idols, the majestic Chloë Sevigny on the series “Those Who Kill” and just last year appeared on Nickelodeon’s “Game Shakers”. Her evolution as a dramatic actress as Cindy has shown so deftly on “Hawaii Five-O” is bound to land her more roles (it’s time she worked with Constance Wu!). The angelic Cindy is more than capable of impressing viewers and we can’t wait for her to be the gem of our adoring eyes.
