"Is doing so well. It's a great show. And he's a great great dude so Let's see it's good to see good people do well. What's it like for actors nowadays especially streaming being such a big thing now and obviously during the pandemic. It's totally taken off. You know there's so many channels out there and I mean i have. Hbo max and i. I can see the flash and even now superman and lois too. So it's it's amazing what it is. It's really changing. How we view content. It is for sure. It's it's a. I feel like it's a double edged sword having streaming There's obviously more opportunities which is wonderful more opportunities for more actors and a lot more diversity. I feel on on some of these streaming platforms You know the the downside is there's just so much content out there now that it's impossible to watch all of it and so they're really popular shows that i've never even able to wash because there's just no time to watch all of them So i'd say that's that's the downside but it's nice to have more opportunities obviously workday like for you on the flash is in a long day. Sometimes yeah they can go pretty long. We've we've cut days a little shorter because of covid restrictions. So that's been actually kind of nice this year last year. We you know you have some really late night shoots inside. It's in cougar. it's raining. It's you know forty degrees things like that. So we have a lot less that this season which was really nice But yeah camilla pops it out. Sometimes i'll just come in for a scene and sometimes i'm there all day and It's different every day. You know working with different people and It's always it's always something different which is fun so you do the commute from la to vancouver pretty much. Yeah i mean previous. Yep prior to this season i was. I was flying in for a couple of days and going home for a couple of days. it was. I feel like. I basically lived in vancouver half the time i lived in. La half the time just popping back and forth But this season you know like i said we had to chunk episodes yeah cove restrictions so it was a little different this this year but Yeah we'll see what it's like next year. Hopefully their actions will ease up. And it'll go back to normal well as an uncle to to half asian girls. It's nice to see a face like yours on tv. Thank you nice to be on. Tv yes it is it is. It's great to be on tv. Actually i guess really the first asian american that really made it impacted me was on the original star trek and george decay. Who still doing it. And it was like beauty of star. Trek was that you got used to it. And you've got to see this mix of people working together and it didn't. It seemed very normal to me. So it's great. I'm glad shows like the flash continuing that. And i think that's just toss. Yeah yeah. I hope that that trend continues right. Thank you for being on ripe podcast and best of luck to you. You're obviously very talented young lady and you're doing some great work and would love to see how your film comes out to thank you. Thank you for having me right and thank you for listening to sifi talk until next year..

"You know your character better than they would know them. Yeah yeah i mean the great thing about we have amazing directors on the flash and i feel if they really trust is that gives us the ability to trust that and And you know because the flashes been on for so long. I feel like people have the chance to watch it. And really get to know our characters and get to know us and the good thing about the flash to is we bring back the same directors so even though i've only been on the show for a couple of seasons i've been able to work with the same directors over and over again sometimes multiple in the same season or sometimes from season to season and so Every time there welcome back to we just love seeing them again and we already have that report There's very few directors at this point that are brand new to us and so that's really great to have them be a part of the flash family and just come back and do multiple episodes for us. It's tough because they have to kind of maintain a certain continuity they can't it can't do like an episode very metaphorical or anything. You kind of have to stay within certain guidelines and Yeah i mean. It's a heightened reality. You know. I it's for you. I mean you're the only human all these meta humans around sometimes that's gotta be a little That's got again. You said it. It's good to be kind of grounding force in a series doesn't do that so it's interesting are you familiar with the flash and the speed force at all before you got the job. Gosh only very little My brother and my husband or huge comic book fans and obviously know about the flash. Because it's such a huge Conic the character Luckily for camilla she comes on the show and she doesn't know really anything about the flash about vibe or any of them. She just sees the sky. That's cute a bar. And they hit it off and it takes a few episodes in a few months for them to kind of reveal who everybody is to her. So i got to learn about the show and about the conical characters as committed and so i felt like that was a realistic bench But yeah i i wasn't. I wasn't like a comic book fan. But after i got on the show i actually binge watched all of the seasons. I watched season one through four. Probably a couple of months. So i became a fan afterward. Well that's amazing. Yeah that's a great way to approach your part is because you're you don't have a preconception of the character is and you're just as the it just grounded honesty to it when you're in your performance and you can't. It's hard to fake. That i would think or to or to act that. It's better that you don't know. Yeah i probably helped me out and school so well. You know they're they're they're wrapping up another one and you're going to come back for eight. That's pretty fantastic as far as personally career wise What what are your aspiration. You wanna you bid on the set you've been on fewer sets and i've seen your way around any aspirations to be behind the camera angle. Yeah i actually started by the camera. Your cinematographer the job. Yeah i i went to school for cinematography and i moved up to la to pursue that and then ended up acting instead. And i've been acting for the past ten years. But i really miss being behind the camera so right before the pandemic actually Filmed my first short film as director. I was a huge learning experience. I just so proud of You know all the work was done there and really caught that bug again. I would say so. I'm currently working on directing another short film documentary. This time And i don't know where that's going to go. I i'm just kind of pursuing whatever brings me joy for the current moment and that's directing while i'm still on the flash so i i'm not sure i don't think i'll ever kind of confined myself to one thing because they just love being on set and i love creating and i love storytelling so i hope that i get to kind of delve into multiple sides of the industry and for however long. My career goes cinematography. I've always looked at kind of like painting with light per fill. You know it really is how you lightest seen enforces. How scenes going to go. I mean you used a script. Obviously and if it's a if it's bright cheery funny scene. It's bright and cheery and if it's kind of tragic you have to kind of know moot which work with shadows and stuff it's It's very interesting. What has changed a lot probably is technology and even even the sets they like on a series built the lights into like the the the ceiling of the set. Mazing how it's all change. Yeah i mean it's chaim stomach. Even since i've been in school. I graduate school graduate college like ten years ago and we were the last class to learn on film and then after i graduated. They started learning on the new digital cameras. Which obviously everybody's using these days and now it's more rare to find someone here. She son film and so. I feel like my education. I mean obviously the basics are still the same. And i feel like learning on film actually helps give you better education. But i wouldn't even you know it's hard to know your way around some of these new cameras because they're just coming out with new ones. All the time and knowledge is changing all the time so the basics are the same. But you know the end out. I don't know if i would know my way around some of these new camera. You have the the one that keeps coming up. Is the red camera. People are bragging about it. It's like it's become almost a standard. It's pretty amazing. What it can do especially lights so definitely. We're sitting on rashidi my documentary on her red and i'm just like oh my gosh. It's so it's so compact and it's so you can do so much with it. It's just so easy so it's great. It's funny but you. You have kind of something in common with another actor. That's on a superhero. Show now in jack. Quaid employs one boys. Of course on the boy. The ad which i forgot was before. Yeah that was before the boys for the boys. And before the flash i think maybe i maybe i was shooting that when i was on the flash already but yeah we met before the boys And he's he's so lovely and so great. And i'm so happy that that show.

"Or you know you can say the news did break. That carl be leaving the series I'm not sure how much i can say about that. Or i don't wanna spoil anything But you know it's the flash and we work on a show that has different d'appel gainers and different timelines and different places in time and all these things. So i feel like you know. It's never really the end. When a character leaves the show There's always an opportunity for that after two comeback. So speaking of those timelines what was really cool was in the crossover that happened. I guess it was last year almost two years ago. Now and you saw the different universes and also use the cool scene into flash. People are still talking about it. When urs miller came over from films you had the two flashes together and that was really really wild so anything is possible. Anything is possible. I mean i've only been on the show for three seasons. Ready played a couple of versions of myself. Definitely possible as an actor is that how do you find that. Obviously it's a bit of a challenge. Oh it's so fun. I welcome the challenge I feel like you know when you play one character day after day month after month year after year. sometimes it can get a little. Okay this is. You know what i'm doing so to be challenged and to be thrown a new character on the same show is i think it's a gift and it's really fun to play. How many episodes will we see you in the rest of these i don't know i haven't counted. You'd be like six or seven or eight. I can't remember coating guy in quite a few. Yeah yeah we did have to to block all of my episodes together this year because of covid and because we shoot different country We have to do the two week. Quarantine and everything so. I shoved all of my mind together and little chunks. So at least you'll be able to see little chunks throughout the season. That's gotta be a little different is are you saying is it. Am i shooting episode. This one this weaker. Doing this is kind of hard to keep it all together. Yeah especially because we get the we get the episodes weeks before shooting it and so we're filming a different episode or reading an episode from. You know that's going in the future in thinking that episodes in the past and sometimes we have to stop for a second and think about. Okay wait this already happened or do. I know that this happened. Or where are we going. Who has talking to. You can get a little confusing especially when you introduce the different the multi-diverse and the different timelines. Everything as far as season. Finale is that been talked about her is is a is going to be a reality. Yeah where will. We are filming the season finale. We should be filming it right now. So yeah no spoilers there but It's crazy that it's already the end of the season. I mean for us filming It obviously isn't for viewers by what we're about to go into a break which is nice 'cause eight. We found long season. So you pretty big finale. Do yeah and we just filmed are one hundred fiftieth episode. So that was a really big as yeah a huge accomplishment and i was a really big episode as well so i think it'll it'll be a really good season. I really liked the season reading it. So i'm excited to see it on the screen more dc entertainment on becase. Stay to back with more dc animation and live action conversations on the case. Who you're gonna be in the finale. The finale actually home in la right now so this. Nellie but i'm excited to see it. Oh yeah aren't we all. that's great. Yeah this is this whole hour over. I would have never predicted this. When i first covered arrow years ago when i came out but it just kept building and building. And and the flash i mean grant is Is terrific and ensure really good cash. Any practical jokers. Oh gosh and all of our boys are huge. Jokesters mean you get them all together they just don't stop It's really fun and it's also a lot but we have a lot of fun on that together. I always love coming to work and the good thing about our show is because there's so many characters in there so many different storylines relationships to explore. I feel like. I get to work with someone different every day every day decide. It's it's exciting to see who. I'm going to get to break with every person. I have a different dynamic and so it's really really fun to work on this show. You have a favorite scene or episode about her. That you'd like oh gosh Yeah i mean i love. I love working with teams citizen You know any day that. I get with my with my ladies with kayla and kansas and danny super fun And then i think my favorite episode my hero episode to shoot would probably been six zero five apposite five last season It was cisco's big episode and it was kind of film no ari Sign yeah that was a great episode and lows did an awesome job and it was a big episode for cisco and camilla which was finding explore And i got to work with. Danny trae ho. Who is a agean top to bottom a great a great episode to work on a restaurant tour. Too by the way yeah. Yeah pretty hoes talkers man. He's opening a new store. Yeah i've been to his taco shop. I've been to his donut shop. He is he is a hard working hard working man and just so So sweet which is hilarious. 'cause you so intimidating you read us man and such a joy to work with and get to know the degree so after the flash. What do you think you're gonna do. I don't know You know. I feel like the doors. The door is open. I really love comedy. And i love that can gets to be a part of some comedic and lighter moments on the show so i'd love to do something that just makes people laugh but i don't know i'm open to anything really you would you say is your favorite part of comedy. Do you like Like doing the pratfalls or do you like the subtle humor or just being. So i love it. All i feel like my strength is more subtle humor But i i love just making people laugh and i love having that That atmosphere on set. I feel like even though the flashing at a little heavy at times. All of us are pretty We'd like to joke around so when the cameras are off. Were making each other laugh all the time so i think that helps keep us sane through some of those heavier moments when you have to be hyperventilating crying or doing something. That's you know bringing those emotions but Yeah i just. I just love. I love making people laugh and i love laughing. So who doesn't on a series you get a lot of different directors and actually some of your cast mates will direct you to so what's it like when you when when you're dealing with a different director and honestly i now.

"Today we have victoria park. Ag plays mila one on the television series of victoria. You've been there really almost from the very beginning. That's kind of youth day. It's been season five like a long time but not the beginning. Wow that's great. So what can you tell us. No spoilers please and of course you're not going to so for camilla this season. Oh gosh i feel like ever since. She's gotten out of the mirrors. I feel like she's been doing a lot of soul searching and so there's a there's a lot of changes for economic season and i'm excited to delve into it. How do you go about playing somebody from another university in hunting towers unprepared for something like that. Yeah i mean the good thing with camilla. Sorry my dog is at jumping all over me down so great sound asleep right now working from home you know Camilla ya the joy. Think mila is that. She's a real person she doesn't have. I mean you know. She's a fictional character. But she doesn't have any superpowers She just you know. Try to go about her normal life. And so i feel like the prepare for her was actually kind of easy of a lot easier than all of the other characters who have superpowers after kind of play that him. You know she's just a normal gal. What do you like best about I actually really liked the cheese. In normal gal i feel like she's a very grounding per person in on the show definitely for cisco I also like that. She can be just as much a hero's anyone else in. So i think that sends a good message to people who are watching the show. Who obviously don't have superpowers that you don't have to have a power to To be hero into brave now this season this is season seven. I can't believe it seems like yesterday. But not as far as co protocols. What was that like to shoot during that. why it was very different I think we have a great come. Rotary a great culture on the show so in previous seasons we would come in and everyone you know hug everybody. And it's just super friendly and warm So to not be able to do that to have everyone kind of in their separate and not be able to hug anybody. That was a huge change for sure. you know. We have new people on the set to keep us safe with hand. Sanitizer reminding us to stay to sit and everything so it's definitely a different feel this year but you know we we got through it and at the end of the day. I'm grateful to be able to still work through a pandemic. I know that people are not able to have that luxury so It was it was different but it was. It was still it. We'll we'll see the new season. I believe it starting june as i write. Were the it on the air now right now. Yeah it'll be on not flakes. And i think in other countries later this year so in the summer great when a series reaches season seven. There's always talk about his last season. Has that been discussed from what you've heard or you know if it's a spoiler don't tell me but it could. The show still going strong. Yeah the show still going strong. The fans are still showing up and we still love coming to work every day. So we are sign on g season. Eight and i don't know past that but yeah seven at the last season one of the things i really love about the cw. And really greg has done. Is the diversity on the shows. I think that's been no. I mean anything. You can imagine Is is been on there and really showing a diverse universe from nicole. Maine's not jibril girl and yourself african americans and Carlos obviously there tinos and totally tino happy to see somebody with you. Know who has a brain. That's latino on. So yeah i talk about god aspect of it. I think that's so important especially for the younger people to see it. And say hey. This is pretty normal. Yeah i mean it's so wonderful to be a part of a show that size diverse is the flashes You know coming on knowing that. I wasn't going to be the only person of color was was very comforting. Because i feel like we don't i don't usually get that i'm usually you know one of the only people if not the only person so it was really nice coming on and knowing that they were going to be Other people of color and other people that look by me and That lends itself to the the warm and welcoming environment by. I feel like it does in. I just love that. You know eric eric. Show runner so important to him as as a black man and And so you definitely see that trickle down to to everyone on the cast and crew and it's just been such a joy working on the show i have this inc. I like to call colorblind casting where you like. For example the conned brooks was cast as as james elles. I mean you know going against what the comics not against just a different direction. And i like that and like jason momoa in films as acrobat co. What a great move. That was but. I love that. And i do you see that more and more as an actor now or is it. It's a slow process. Put us kind of see some breakthroughs going on grown life. Yeah definitely. I mean it's still. We still have a long way to go. But i would definitely say that. We're better now than we ever have been. Especially when i started. I feel like when i started. I was just going out for you. Know typical roles and never the lead for anything. And now i feel like the doors are open to at least get in those rooms into be even have the chance for those roles and be like you know we can be seen as the lead I definitely think that more doors are open. We still have a ways to go as they said. But i have a lot of hope that will get their absolutely. What can you tell us about camilla. Well kabila this go I love them. They're so great there so pure I would just imagined to see their relationship. Continue to grow in different ways But you know camille is always gonna be there for cisco I we so far as i know. And so i just love continuing to see the relationship being and i really stabilizing presence for cisco and for team flashing team citizen. I don't know if this is true. You hear about a lot of things. But i heard that carlos is going to be leaving the series is. Have you heard anything about that.

"Already have that rapport There's very few directors at this point that are brand new to us and so that's really great to have them be a part of the family and just come back And do opposites for us. It's tough because they have to kind of maintain a certain continuity. They can't they can't do like an episode. It's very a metaphorical or anything.

I don't think i'll ever kind of confined myself to one thing because i just love being on set and i love creating i love storytelling so i hope that i get to kinda delve into the sides. The industry and for however long my career goes cinematography. I've always looked at kind of like painting with light per you. It really is how you light. A scene enforces how the scenes can go.

But i wouldn't even you know it's hard to know your way around some of these new cameras because they're coming out with new ones.

You have the the one that keeps coming up. Is the red camera. People are bragging about it. It's become almost a standard. It's pretty amazing. What they can do especially in lights. Yeah definitely we're shooting My documentary on her red. And i'm just like oh my gosh. It's so it's so compact and it's so fast and you can do so much with it. It's just so easy so it's great. It's funny but you. You have kind of something in common with another actor. That's on a superhero. Show now inject quaid in plus one of course on the boy the ad which is floor. Yeah that was before the boys before the boys and before the flash i think maybe i maybe i was shooting that when i was on the flash already but yeah we met before the boys and he's he's so lovely so great and i am so happy that that show is doing so well. It's a great show. And he's a great great dude so It's it's good to see good people do well. What's it like for actors nowadays especially with streaming being such a big thing now and obviously during the pandemic. It's totally taken off. You know there are so many channels out there and I mean i have. Hbo max and i. I can see the flash and superman and lois too. So it's it's amazing what it is. It's really changing. How we view content. Yeah yeah it is for sure. It's it's a. I feel like it's a double edged sword having streaming You know there's obviously more opportunities which is wonderful more opportunity. It's from our actors on a lot more diversity i feel on some of these streaming platforms. you know the the downside is there's just so much content out there now that it's impossible to watch all of it and so they're really popular shows that i've never even be able to watch because it's time to watch all of them So i'd say that's that's the downside but it's nice to have more opportunities. Obviously what a workday like for you on the flash is in a long day sometimes. Yeah they can go pretty long. We've we've cut our days. A little shorter because of kobe restrictions. So that's been actually kind of nice lewis year last year. You know you have some really late night shoot will be outside its vancouver raining. It's forty degrees things like that. So we have a lot less of that this season which was really nice but yeah camilla hula pops in and out so sometimes i'll just come in for a scene and sometimes i'm there all day and It's different every day. You know working with different people and It's it's always. It's always something different which has been so. You do the commute from la to get pretty much. Yeah i mean previous. Yeah prior to this season. I.

"Anything is possible. Anything is possible. I mean i've only been on the show for three seasons than everybody played a couple of versions of myself. Definitely possible as an actor is that how do you find that. Obviously it's a bit of a challenge. Oh it's so fun. I welcomed the challenge I feel like you know when you play one character day after day month after month year after year. Sometimes it can get a little okay. This is know what i'm doing so to be challenged to be on a new character on the same show. Is i think it's a gift and it's really fun to play. How many episodes will we see you in the restaurant Hey i don't know i haven't counted. You'd be like six or seven or eight. I according to remember db. You're in quite a few. Yeah yeah we did have to to block all of my episodes together this year because of covid and because we shoot in the different country You know we have to do the two week quarantine and everything so. I shoved all of my mind together little chunks. So at least you'll be able to see me in little chunks throughout the season dance gotta be a little different kind of like are you saying is. Am i shooting episode. This one this weaker doing this. Is it kind of hard to keep it all together. Yeah especially because we get the we get the episodes you know weeks before actually shooting it and so we're filming different episode or reading an episode from you know that's going in the future and then we're thinking about episodes in the past and sometimes we have to stop for a second and think about. Okay wait this already happened or do. I know that this happened. Or where are we going. Who talking do you can get a little good thing especially when you introduce the different the multi-diverse and the different timelines. Everything as far as season finale has been talked about her is is going to be a reality Yeah our will. We are filming the season finale. We should be filming it right now. So yeah no spoilers there but It's crazy that it's already the end of the season. I mean for us filming It obviously isn't for the viewers by what we're about to go into a break which is nice because we we some long season so it only vacation you pretty big finale z. Always do yeah. We just film dr one hundred fiftieth roads. That was really big as yeah a huge accomplishment and i was a really big episode as well so i think it'll it'll be a really good season. I i really liked the season reading it. So i'm excited to see it on the screen. There's more sci fi talk so stay tuned back on scifi telecom. Tony tomato cool. You're gonna be indeffinitely. I will not be in the finale. I'm actually in la right now. So i to be in this. Nellie back i'm excited to see it. Oh yeah aren't we all. that's great. Yeah this is this. Whole arrow verse. I would have never predicted this when i first covered iro years ago. I came out but it just building and building. And the flash i mean grant is is terrific and it's really good cast. What's sad like a any practical jokers. Oh gosh i. All of our boys are huge. Jokesters get them all together they just don't stop It's really fun and it's also a lot But we have a lot of fun together. I always love coming to work and The good thing about our show is because there's so many characters in so many different storylines relationships to explore. I feel like. I get to work with someone different every day so every day. Come to said it's exciting to see who. I'm going to get to work with every person i have a different dynamic with and so it's really really fun to work on this show. Do you have a favorite scene or episode about that. You'd like oh gosh. Yeah i mean i love. I love working with team citizen Any day that. I get with my with my ladies with kayla and kansas and sometimes danny super fun And then i think my favorite episode my hero episode to shoot would probably been six five episode five last season It was cisco's big episode and it was kind of film no ari And it was fun. Yeah that was a great episode and lows did an awesome job it was a big episode for cisco and camilla which was fun to explore And i got to work with. Danny ho who is a regine so top to bottom a great a great episode to work on and quite a restaurant tour too by the way yeah. Three hose tacos man. He's opening a new store. Yeah i've been to his taco shop. I've been to donut shop. He is he is a hard working hard working man and just so So sweet which is hilarious. 'cause you so intimidating rita man and was just such a joy to work with and get to know great so after the flash. What do you think you're going to do. I don't know You know. I feel like the doors. The is open. I i really love comedy. And i love that Kennedy gets to be a part of some comedic and lighter moments on the show. So i'd love to do something that just makes people laugh. But i don't know i'm open to anything really which you would you say is your favorite part of comedy. Do you like Do you like doing the. I guess the pratfalls or do you like the subtle humor or got. I love it. All i feel like my strength is more subtle humor But i i love just making people laugh and i love having that That atmosphere on set. I feel like even though the flashing at a little heavy at times all of us are pretty. We'd like to joke around so when the cameras are off were making each other laugh all the time. So i think that helps keep us sane through some of those heavier moments when you have to be hyperventilating or crying doing something. That's you know bringing those emotions but Yeah i just. I just love i love making people laugh and i love laughing. So doesn't yeah on a series you get a lot of different directors and actually some of your cast mates will direct you to so what's that like when you when when you're dealing with a different director and honestly i now know your character better than they would know them. Yeah yeah i mean the great thing about we have amazing directors on the flash and i feel if they really trust us and that gives us the ability to trust that and And you know because the flashes than on for so long. I feel like people have the chance to watch it and really get nowhere characters and get to know us and the good thing about the flash to is we bring back a lot of the same directors so even though i've only been on the show for a couple of seasons i've been able to work with the same directors over and over again sometimes multiple in the same season or sometimes from season to season and so Every time there welcome back to we just love seeing them again we.

"Don davis. I'm the composer of the matrix. Matrix reloaded and the matrix revolutions. Hi this is. John delancey kind of the things that aren't there. Well you know. Sometimes you have that experience anyway but people at all day thanks in part because it the hopeful nature of genes vision but also because of its message of diversity and inclusion. Today we have victoria part. Itchy plays camila on the television series. The flash victoria. You've been there really almost from the very beginning. That's kind of youth day. It's been season five so a long time but not the beginning. Wow that's great. So what's what can you tell us. No spoilers please and of course you're not going to so what's up for camilla this season. I'll gosh Ever since she's gotten out of the mirrors. I feel like she's been doing a lot of soul searching and so there's a there's a lot of changes for economic season and i'm excited to delve into it. How do you go about paying somebody who another university in two hours. Prepare for something like that. Yeah i mean the good thing with camilla. Sorry my dog is jumping all over me down. Sound asleep right now working from home. You know that yet camilla. I think is that. She's a real person she doesn't have. I mean you're a fictional character. But she doesn't have any superpowers She tries to go about her normal life. And so i feel like the prepare for her was actually kind of easy. It was a lot easier than all of the other characters. Who have superpowers after. Kind of play that but You know she just normal gal. What are you like best about I actually really liked the choose. Normal gal i feel like she's a very grounding per person on the show Definitely for cisco I also like that. She can be just as much a heroes anyone else in. So i think that sends a good message to people who are watching the show. Who obviously don't have superpowers that you don't have to have a power to To be hero into brave now this season seven can't believe it seems like yesterday but as far as kobe protocols What was that like to shoot during that. Yeah it was very different I think we have a great camaraderie in a great culture on the show. So you know. In previous seasons we come in and everyone would you know hug. Everybody and super friendly and warm So to not be able to do that to have everyone kind of in their separate zones and not be able to hug anybody. That was a huge change for sure We have new people on the set to keep us safe with hand. Sanitizer reminding us to stay to sit and everything so it's definitely a different feel this year but You know we we got through it and at the end of the day. I'm grateful to be able to still work through a pandemic. I know that people are not able to have that luxury so It was it was different but it was it was still good will will see the new season. I believe it's starting. June is right. Were the itami air now. It's right now. Yeah it'll be on net flicks. And i think in other countries later this year so in the summer that's great when a series reaches season seven. There's always talk about hayes last season. Has that been discussed from what you've or you know. If it's a spoiler don't tell me but Condition still going strong. Yeah the show still going strong. The fans are still showing and we still love coming to work every day. So we are sign on season eight and i don't know past that but a season seven is not the last season one of the things i really love about the cw. And really were. Greg has done. Is the diversity on the shops. I think that's been you know. I mean anything. You can imagine Is is been on there and really showing diverse universe from nicole. Maine's supergirl in yourself african americans and Carlos obviously tinos and i'm totally throughout december latino. Happy to see somebody with you. Know who has a brain that's latino honest so So yeah i talk about that aspect of it. I think that's so important especially for the younger people to see it. And say hey. This is pretty normal. Yeah i mean it's so wonderful to be a part of a show that size savers as the flashes coming on knowing that i wasn't going to be the only person of color was was very comforting. Because i feel like we don't. I don't usually get that. I'm usually you know one of the only people if not the only person so it was really nice coming on and knowing that they were going to be Other people of color and other people that looked like me and I don't know for that lends itself to the the warm and welcoming environment by. I feel like it does. And i just love that. You know Eric the show runner so important to him as as a black man and And so you definitely see that trickle down to to everyone on the cast and crew and it's just been such a joy working on the show i have seen car. I like to call colorblind casting where you like. For example. the con- brooks was cast as as james. I mean you know going against what the convicts not against just a different direction. And i like that. And like you know jason momoa in the films as achromatic co what a great move that was but i love that and how do you see that more and more than actor now or is it. It's a slow process. But do you kinda see some breakthroughs going on and girl much. Yeah definitely. I mean it's still. We still have a long way to go. But i would definitely say that. We're better now than we ever have been. And especially when i started. I feel like when i started. I was just going out for you. Know typical roles and never the lead for anything. And now if you like the doors are open to at least get in those rooms and to be even have the chance for those roles and be like you know we can be seen as a lead I definitely think that more doors are open. We still have a ways to go is a sad but i have a lot of hope. That will get their absolutely. What can you tell us about. Camilla welcome villain cisco. I love them. They're so great there so pure I would just imagined to see their relationship. Continue to grow in different ways But you know camilla's always going to be there for cisco I we so far as i know. And so i just love continuing to see the relationship being and i really stabilizing presence for cisco and for team flashing teams citizen. I don't know if this is true. You hear about a lot of things. But i heard that carlos is going to be leaving the series Have you heard anything about that or you know you can say. The news did break. That carlos will be leaving the series I'm not sure how much i can say about that or spoil anything but you know the flash and we work on a show that has different d'appel gainers and different timelines and different places in time and all these things so i feel like you know it's never really the end when a character leaves the show There's always an opportunity for that after two comeback. So speaking of those timelines what was really cool was in the crossover that happened. I guess it was last year almost two years ago. Now and you saw the different universes and also use the cool scene into flash. People are still talking about it. When urged miller came over from films and you had the two flashes together and that was really really wild so.
Hong Kong commemorates Tiananmen Square Massacre despite crackdown
"Square crackdown all entrances to Victoria Park, where the main vigil is normally held with barricaded, But hundreds of people instead created a procession around the park with the lights on their phones and candles. Clinician ABC NEWS Hong Kong, A group
Remembering the Tiananmen Square Crackdown
"Which came 32 years ago today, when hundreds possibly thousands, died when China's Communist Party had used the People's Liberation Army to put a bloody end to the student led pro democracy protests. 1989. The date is always a flashpoint and nowhere is this more sensitive than the restive region of Hong Kong. Already a prominent pro democracy activist, Xiao Hong Kong, has been arrested by police there for promoting unauthorized assembly. The authorities say this year's event has been banned due to covid social distancing restrictions. Hundreds of thousands of Hong Kong residents would normally packed Victoria Park in a late night vigil. The BBC's Danny Vincent has this report from Hong Kong. For more than three decades. Ivy lie has marked every anniversary of the June 4th crackdown. She keeps copies of newspaper articles from that day under her bed, she does not forget. Hong Kong is the only place on Chinese soil that officially commemorates those that died in 1989. When the Army opened fire on pro democracy protesters. It's murder. It's a bloody massacre of Tiananmen Square. This year, the police have banned an annual visual marking the day they threatened to imprison anyone who defies covid 19 restrictions. Ivy becomes emotional at the thought of not being able to attend. Activists believe the pandemic is being used as an excuse to silence dissent. That the which, over the years I think that not being able to go to Victoria Park, Hong Kong people will be very upset. Yeah.
The next of 1,000 cuts: Hong Kong activists on trial
"Rock. It's a scene. That's becoming ole too familiar in hong kong this week more pro. Democracy activists are on trial before appearing in court. One of the accused lee. Cheuk yan said hong kong's rule of law is deteriorating because he became a in some political him eight other profile figures have been charged with organizing and participating in an unauthorized. The charges stemmed not from hong kong's draconian new national security law but from the protests prior to its introduction in june twenty nine thousand nine millions of hong kongers began taking to the streets. They were opposing and extradition bill but they saw as a grave threat to the territory's delegate independence from the mainland government over months. The demonstrations escalated vandalism and violence were met with tear gas and rubber bullets. This week's training focuses on one particular protest so on august. Eighteen two thousand and nineteen mole than one million. People gathered to protest despite very heavy rain that day. Su lin wong is a china correspondent for the economist and is based in hong kong so the police had granted permission for people to protest in victoria park but they weren't granted permission to march on the streets but because there was so many people showed up inevitably people flowed out but the eight hundred august protests. Actually marks the first tig free weekend in a month so really was extremely peaceful. Compared to many of the protests that had come before it and so if that days protests remained peaceful wire or activists on trial for for being a part of it. They're nine high profile activists who on trial charged with organizing and participating in unauthorized and so they faced penalties of up to five years in jail. It's important to know that they haven't been charged under the national security law which was introduced after up. These protests occurred so the prosecution is accusing these group of defying police. Instructions encouraging crowds to watch and causing traffic disruptions. While the defense doesn't contest the facts that helped to organize and participate in the peaceful assembly. What they're arguing is that. The charges violate a basic right to assembly guaranteed under hong kong law and they are challenging the constitutionality of the polices ability to ban assemblies especially when the protests were directed at the police themselves. And you say that all the defendants are are high profile. Parts of hong kong's democracy movement. Yes so interestingly. This particular case is focused on an older generation of pro-democracy activists in hong kong who are generally considered to be moderate and who believe in trying to change the system from within by for example running for parliament in contrast to a younger generation of protesters who we saw take to the streets in two thousand nine hundred eighteen. So the fact that it's it's this group of older per democracy campaigners indicates the dominant is trying to crush the democracy movement as a whole as opposed to going after particular protesters who a particularly violent the two most high profile defendants in this case. Are martin land. Jimmy lai so muslim is considered the father of the democracy movement in hong kong. He's now eighty two years old. The other high profile figure is jimmy. Lai who is a media tycoon and runs a pro-democracy tabloid in hong kong and his despised by the chinese communist party. And so how do you think this trial will go so two of the nine have pleaded guilty to the charges and the remaining seven have pleaded not guilty to the sentence for the to pleaded. Guilty is expected next month and then the trial for the seven. He pleaded not guilty. Expected to last two weeks and so courts in hong kong still have a relatively high degree of autonomy and as a high standard of evidence it's expected in cases so people hoping that the courts will will still remain as independent as they were known to be prior to the protests as you say targeting these fathers and mothers of democracy in hong kong is quite telling so i think the outlook for democracy in hong kong is extremely grim and while some supporters did rally outside the court on tuesday since the national security law was introduced me last day. Her beam very few protests harshly because of covid restrictions but also because there has been a real layer of fear that is settled across the city. People have been arrested for holding up blank posters and slogans that we heard all the time on the streets in two thousand and nineteen have now being labeled seditious

Go to the nearest. MTO Station Asian gets on the Blue Island line and get off at either Tin Hau or Fortress Hill alternatively. If you decide to take a taxi it's a good idea to use either of those. MTO Stations Sion's as your point. That's because strictly speaking there is no such places in the area that lies between these two stations and is bordered by Victoria Park Victoria Harbor and Braemar. Hill should technically be called either Causeway Bay or North Point. The Phantom district of Tin. Hau actually gets its name from the nearby Tin Hau Temple Tin. Hau is the goddess of the scene Cantonese so these temples erected in her honour have traditionally attracted fishermen Chaman families who come to pay their respects and Ostra protection from the ocean necessarily expect Tin Hau temples usually found dumped along the coast of Hong Kong. However in this particular neck of the woods extensive land reclamation work in the early twentieth century has pushed the temple further and further away from the sea as a result?

Behind the Hong Kong protests
"Well, you will have seen the scenes over the past two weeks. Hong Kong has been the scene of anger and violence and tragedy at a record breaking display of defiance to the communist party rule is in China at its peak almost two million people marched in Hong Kong to demand. The scrapping of legislation that would allow almost anyone to be extradited to face trial in China. The China correspondent Bill Birtles looks back in a moment of courage, and of history. It's Sunday morning, June sixteenth. And I'm feeling pretty pessimistic about the story deigned sent to Cava sitting over our usual, Hong Kong breakfast of Tyco, coffees at the hotel. I'm going through planning messages from ABC headquarters with my colleagues, Nick doll and Craig Berkman it saying back in Sydney. Everyone thought Hong Kong was about to go off again. Just dies before hundreds of riot. Police moved in on mainly young protestors at a demonstration outside the city's legislative assembly. Hong Kong's no stranger to protests. This was the first time place at five rubber bullets and tear gas to break one up. What was there that afternoon, aging bureau cameramen rain's coming? We had brought the mosques goggles and hot, hats, dissipating the worst with duct back to our nearby hotel to file story, when would kind the demonstrators at tried to storm the government building. And the police are moving in. Upon rising back to the same the smell of pepper spray was in the air. It was the first time on failed lingering burn on the skin. The atmosphere was tense. Lisa classroom protesters at the gates of the government building. Now the cops were moving in formation taking back about ten minutes at a time. Protesters would have back and forth skirmishes with the police hoisting umbrellas as a defense of the spray and throwing water bottles, we ran amongst it close enough to get the Schultz we needed, but far enough. We thought not to get in harm's way. But then they started firing tear gas. Panic erupted as hundreds, perhaps agent, thousands of students bolted as the cannisters came towards them. No matter where you were or wafted tear gas was unavoidable. And it went on like this for hours by not send police had succeeded in clearing the protesters and opening the roads. But the source of the anger remained Hong Kong's, chief executive carry lamb was trying to rush through an extradition, Bill. She said it would allow the transfer of suspects jurisdictions where Hong Kong doesn't have an agreement that included my land, China many people in Hong Kong are really worried about the increasing range of China's government into the former British colony. And this Bill was seen as a huge threat back when the Brits handed Hong Kong to China in nineteen Ninety-seven. They did so under a deal Hong Kong would become a part of China, but could keep it separate and much more liberal laws for fifty years now by djing would be able to request. The extradition of people in Hong Kong to face Chinese courts on the mainland. The chief executive Carrie Lam said they would be safeguards and political activists would not be targeted, but very few people believed her. She insisted that the Bill must be voted on within a week in a local parliament, that's rigged, by China's government to ensure a permanent pro-beijing majority. Ms lamb stance combined with the police actions, compounded the anger the death of a protester who scaled a building and fell during a rescue attempt further added to the mood. But in the subsequent days protest movements seems to evaporate, Christian groups continue to turn up and sing. But it looked like the mass protests were either the demonstrators said they would regroup on Sunday. But it seemed to be really poorly organized then on Saturday, Carrie Lam front of the cameras and announced, she would indefinitely delay. The extradition, Bill people power had at least temporarily one. This was a major back down and it was intended to take the fuel out of the issue right before that next protests Shiduan for Sunday. So it's Sunday morning and I'm sitting there in the hotel with Nick and Craig both of whom had been flown from Australia to cover. What looked like a big developing story and the urgency around. It seemed to have just been taken away the streets of Hong Kong looked really normal trams running down the mine thoroughfare markets bustling. I was starting to doubt with a Sunday's progress would amount to much at all the network. Back home was relying on us with multiple. Quests for live crosses, and packages as we drank out, coffees we wondered if we'd end up reporting on a small gathering of just a few thousand protesters, it's really worrying to a correspondent when the expectations for story back home, same out of step with the feeling on the ground. But that afternoon as we headed on foot towards Victoria Park. It was clear that the crowds would building address, code of black bean suggested to symbolize the darkness that the extradition, Bill would supposedly bring to Hong Kong, and when the March leaders reached out vantage point in the wind shy district at about three o'clock. It was clear, the protest was huge a constant stream of people young old students families all wearing black kept flowing towards us. They would changing resign and no to the extradition, Bill as I said, up amongst it for live crosses into the seven pm usable listens. A coal wind up nearby. Police to open Jason roads to the protest brutal. The volume of people was to lodge hours later, I skipped through the crowd to get to a high of adage point at my hotel. The scene was just extrordinary hundreds of thous-. Thousands of people absolutely packing a major road all chanting all cheering all moving and still they kept coming hour after hour. It went on now that adjacent roads also had people marching, if me and little doubt that at least a million people were out organizes legs and said it was to lay said it was about three hundred forty thousand to the naked eye. I would say the organizers with closer. The protest went light into the eighth inning of the demonstrators peacefully dispersed. It was I repeat of the clashes Nick Craig, it on my, we're all staggered at the site of so many people in one place, roughly wanting five Hong Kong as had come out onto the streets in the subsequent dies. Caroll-ann profusely apologized for her handling of the extradition Bill process and promised, she would never try to introduce the legislation. Again, if such. Yeah. And concern continued to exist. She was after all appointed by China's government. So it completely withdrawing, it would be a great embarrassment to buy, djing, and that was as close as the protesters got to a complete victory as a correspondent, based in Beijing. I can't help feel the political culture of the two cities couldn't be any more different to see all these young people, so freely pushing back against an authoritarian government and speaking on camera in a way that would be unheard of, in Beijing it really struck me in the twenty two years. Since the hand IVA China has really filed win the hearts and minds of Hong Kong. China's president Xi Jinping has forced new laws on the CD to Gile people who disrespect China's national flag, and the national anthem through Hong Kong's government. He's also tried to push through intrusive, national security laws, but there was pushback on those two almost halfway through the fifty years of one. Entry to systems. He's clearly not going to stop the push to gain greater control of Hong Kong and bring it into line with the rest of China. The protesters this city note, they relish, having the freedom to speak, even if the odds seem stacked against them. So with many fights ahead of them in the years to come. They've shown this time that they won't easily back down. Fascinating time in history, China. Correspondent Bill Birtles reflecting on those amazing scenes in Hong Kong last week.

Speaking out about this, our chief north Asia. Correspondent didn't go. He is on the ground for us Steve. We did see this kind of stunning turnaround from Carrie Lam to at least suspend the consideration of this Bill, for now, how big of a win is this for the opposition. Well, obviously is a win, but it has not pacified their angst towards this Bill because Carrie Lam in their estimated did not withdraw the Bill, full, stop, those are the words we're hearing from the protest leaders who are holding up news conference just over my left shoulder.

Chinese extradition bill spurs mass protests in Hong Kong
"Now. Hong Kong leader, Carrie, Lam has said she will not scrap a controversial new plan to allow extradition of suspects to mainland China for the first time, despite mass protests, supporters of the law say will prevent the semi autonomous city of Hong Kong from becoming a criminal refuge. But critics fear Beijing will use it to extradite political opponents to China, where their legal protections cannot be guaranteed the guardians Helen Davidson, is in Hong Kong, where organizers claim that a million people have taken to the streets. Last Tuesday, around one hundred eighty thousand people gathered in Victoria Park in Hong Kong, and that was for the vigil commemorating the Chatham and square, mascot. It was the thirtieth anniversary this year. So that was always going to be a really big event, but the opposition to this tradition Bill, which has been really increasing over the last few months in particular. It was also a really heavy presence at the vigil as well. You know, it was a reminder of the democracy that they hold onto here in Hong Kong, and what oppression in China. And by China, Ken, Maine. The extradition Bill would laugh a case by case extraditions to number of agents. Hong Kong doesn't currently have arranged with this includes mainland China. And the obvious concern that people have is that China's legal system and Justice system is not considered to be very free that it's not considered to be very fair. Whereas Hong Kong is very proud of its Justice system. And it's, it's sane is one of his assets as a diplomatic and financial hub in the west of the activists who pushing against this Bill. The low will legitimize Chinese Chinese abduction. They're looking at the multiple cases of disappearances renditions by the Chinese government of people in other countries to get them back to mainland China into face charges of, you know, various different things, which are ultimately saying, as being rich bution for their political opposition in their political activism against China no-one really trust that Hong Kong's real. Assurance that they will never hand over someone for political reasons. No one really trust that. So, you know, it's a, it's a real fear, among people in Hong Kong. And that was something that came across a lot. When I was speaking to people at the protest yesterday. I went down there about half now before it was starting. And I really struggled to get there. You know, I was on the Woking couple of blocks, but it would have taken, maybe an hour the straits fool, and it was, it was a save white t shirts everywhere, you look, social media was full of videos of jammed up metro stations of ferries that were being that were feeling up being able to get on. And everyone around me was walking very purposely towards Victoria Park. People are frustrated, but it was incredibly painful sorry, determined that this really painful events. There was at one point someone tried to agitate the crowd saying, let's jump over onto the straight, and people called him back saying no going to do this. Right. It got very light. And there are thousands and thousands of people still trying to get into the area around the legislative council midnight their permit for a protest expired and police told them that they had to move on. There was some, some k groups it said, no, we're gonna stay just sit in. We're gonna be here until Wednesday. You can't move us. This refusal escalated into clashes between police and protesters. It was quite violent that there are barricades and bottles thrown. There were several people injured, including police offices and the riot. Police really messing and I were rushing at these protests is quite systematically, to push them, further and further up the right one hundred meters and then ten minutes later another hundred maters. It was quite intimating. I think I mean no one was really putting up much resistance at that point because the offices were at numbering. Protest is at least five to one. Kong legislative council is going to debate the Bill again on Wednesday and it's looking like it will pass. In the last couple of years. Pro-democracy legislators have been expelled from parliament, they are significant minority but era minority, and they just don't have the numbers to push against this Bill, and because of that, I think people get up and we are looking now at more protests on Wednesday and further into the future as well.

This is part of an annual commemoration that takes place here, but it has particular importance today, some thirty years after the massacre of pro-democracy protestors in downtown Beijing's Tiananmen Square. This former British colony is the only place in modern China that is allowed to hold these types of commemorations. Because it inherited certain democratic freedoms when it was handed over from British control back to China.
