I was honored to share an interview with Elizabeth Tan. The beautiful British actress of Chinese descent has a repertoire that spans the scope of film, theater and television.
The talented and well spoken actress shared her thoughts on fashion week, her current role in British TV soap, ‘Coronation Street’ and more.
Read on for the conversation with her.
1. What are you working on at the moment?
I’m currently playing a new character called “Xin” on Coronation Street. It’s so different from any of the characters I’ve played on other TV dramas such as Doctor Who, Hustle, New Tricks, Spooks or Hotel Babylon.
2. You were spied at London fashion week, what were your favourite shows?
I definitely have a soft spot for Christopher Kane and I also really like Jonathan Saunders. I loved the cut and tailoring from Bora Aksu’s collection, but deep down my favourite accessories are shoes! I love Nicholas Kirwood and really like the direction Camilla Skovgaard has gone in this season.
3. What’s your must-have fashion item?
A good bag always does the trick! You can’t go wrong with a Celine or a really worn-in vintage Birkin.
4. What’s your pet fashion peeve?
I don’t really have one! Although I think people should always dress for themselves and not for anyone else..
5. Most likely to wear?
Dresses, I love dresses! Right now I have my eye on a few by David Koma and Lulu & Co’s designers.
6. What does the future hold for Elizabeth Tan?
Who knows? I definitely would like to do a few more US and UK feature films and a lot more West End theatre….
