I'm here tonight with Ming-Na Wen, who just survived the mammoth task of her last movie. Hi, Ming-Na, and welcome to Tales Of The Well-Known.
I say it was about time you folks invited me. I saw Beyonce the other night and, honestly, I did not like it.
Indiana Jones, Lara Croft or Professor Layton?
Lara Croft, without doubt.
Do people yell your name and applaud everywhere you go?
Dog my cats! At times I'm scared by my popularity. I really make no distinction as to race, sex, or religion: I'm known to brighten outstanding NASA scientists and characterless accountants in the same manner. It's nice to know that there are at least 15 boulevards with my name in four different countries, not counting Pokolistan and Benin, which I did not know they were countries.
If there was another movie produced about your life, who do you think should play you, and why?
It should be Margot Robbie, since I always liked her as Ace Ventura.
Ming-Na, which is your favorite fruit?
It is called "Ming-Na's surprise". In the middle of one of my peregrinations in the Hymalayas, I discovered an unremarkable new plant, now named Myriocyprella argentea, which every 6 years blooms and gives fruits whose taste reminds of coconuts and pulled pork. You have to be filthy rich even to unlike it...
Can you confirm the gossip about the purloined Jersey Devil photos?
Thou, gorbellied elf-skinned dewberry! How do you dare?
Where do you go when you die?
Inside a wooden overcoat, generally. If you are incinerated then your ashes can pepper a nice place or Boston.
A famous person you recognize as an inspiration?
As my agent keeps repeating, Doctor Who, because of our awesomeness. In my ideal world we both enjoy the company of little chipmunks.
