Elaine Loh Interview
Elaine Loh is an actress, director, producer, and Rubik’s Cube solver (her best time is 1:13) living in Los Angeles. Her earliest memory was performing in a play at the age of three. All she remembers was that in the play 3 princes showered her with gifts and she was hooked on acting as a result. She graduated from Brown University at the age of 22 with a degree in Psychology but quickly decided that what she really wanted was to pursue a career in acting. She has appeared in award-winning musical stage plays and has appeared on such television shows as Californication, General Hospital, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Chuck, The Mentalist, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, and has an upcoming appearance in NCIS: LA.
Jamie sat down and spoke with Elaine just a few days after Thanksgiving. Elaine is a self-proclaimed television junkie and she offers up her recommendations from the fall tv lineup. Among her recommendations were Good Girls Revolt (Amazon Originals), Pitch (Fox), and the current season of American Horror Story: Roanoke (FX). Jamie offers up a few recommendations of his own and may have convinced Elaine to subscribe to HBO because if his glowing review of Westworld.
TV wasn’t the only topic of conversation. They spoke about her upbringing in Massachusetts, their reactions to the November election, and social justice. Roles for actors of color and the recent whitewashing of roles that would presumably have been better served if Asian actors had been cast (i.e. Ghost In The Shell and Aloha) quickly became a focus of their conversation. Elaine shared her view that acting can be a platform for activism as well entertainment and frequently volunteers her time for causes she holds dear.
