JJ Fong

Actor

Lamenting a lack of good roles for Asian women, Chinese-Kiwi JJ Fong teamed up with fellow actors Ally Xue and Perlina Lau and director Roseanne Liang. In 2013 they launched comical web series Flat3. Fong played aspiring actor Jessica, whose life is overly dictated by her libido. Since then, the Flat3 team have created web series Friday Night Bites, short film Sugar Hit, and dystopian TV series Creamerie. Fong also starred in web comedy Fong Shui with Jessica, and produced web series Meme. Originally she studied dance, which led into musical theatre. Her CV includes Shortland Street, Go Girls, and a memorably bitchy part on Step Dave.

We just wanted to have fun and make the kind of diverse content we love ... Asian Kiwis have told us they really relate to it but people of any ethnicity can because it's just about three girls flatting together in Auckland. It's about love, friendships, jobs, boys — all that sort of stuff. JJ Fong on web series Flat3, in The NZ Herald, 13 December 2016
