Hong Chau Interview: From Struggling to Book Audition to Shining in The Menu & The Whale




It may have taken Hong Chau longer than she would have liked for consistent opportunities to come her way, but it’s happening now and she’s proving that this industry should have taken notice far sooner.

In her latest release, Mark Mylod’s The Menu, she’s a one-of-a-kind force as Elsa, the restaurant captain at Chef Slowik’s (Ralph Fiennes) secluded and very exclusive dining experience at Hawthorne. His new round of guests is an extra special one, destined for a meal they’ll never forget. While Elsa has a firm handle on the entire operation, she encounters an unexpected hiccup — Anya Taylor-Joy’s Margot, the only guest who’s suspicious of the unusual chain of events and tension coursing through them. Allowing Margot to disrupt the plan for the evening is not an option for Elsa.

With The Menu now playing in theaters and Chau’s next movie, The Whale, due out on December 9th, she joined us for an episode of Collider Ladies Night Pre-Party to explain how she reached a point where she regularly scores stellar projects that speak to her personal interests and goals in film and television.
