'I saw it on telly and hung my head in shame and disbelief.'
Source: TV advert inspires a little Xtra loathing
Hopefully not all of us are prone to such feelings when we see a Chinese face on telly but if Thomas and his singing aren't your thing, there is another new British Asian face on our screens at the moment:
Maye Choo has a recurring role in a high profile ITV drama 'Honest' starring alongside veteran actor Burt Kwok who plays her father.
To be honest (no pun intended) when I first saw Maye Choo's performace I was surprised at how good it was - quite confident and convincing. I think the unusual thing about her character is that she isn't just a 'Chinese type' but is actually a scheming, plotting character with motives who gets really involved in the plot. It's not the kind of thing you see that often from a Chinese character and I think it makes a nice change.
Maybe this be a future star to watch?
'Honest' is on ITV Wednesdays at 9:00pm
Maye Choo has her own website: Mayechoo.co.uk
