In 2015, Andrea won her first award for her work as an actress. The Asians on Film Festival awarded her with a best actress summer award for her debut film role as Francesca in the short film “Playdate”. The following year, she was cast as the main character, Janet Kim in “Kim’s Convenience,” a CBC comedy series that also stars Jean Yoon, Andrew Phung and Paul Sun-Hyung Lee.

In 2020, Andrea was nominated for a Best Supporting Performance in a Web Program or Series award at the Canadian Screen Awards, for her portrayal of Samantha in the web series “Running with Violet.”

Career

Diana’s acting career began when she joined Assaulted Fish, a comedy sketch group in Vancouver.

In an interview for the movie, she spoke about her role – ‘Sook is very strong and feisty, and I think I have that in me. That’s very much tied to me being small and short and wanting to put up a fight.’ The most challenging part of the role for her was when new lines in Korean were added to the script last minute; because she is an immigrant, she needs to practice her Korean beforehand to ensure it sounds genuine, ‘I’m sure there is tons of footage of me speaking gibberish rather than Korean.’

She was then Jiao in four episodes of “Bates Motel” starring Freddie Highmore as Norman Bates and Vera Farmiga as Norma Louise Bates. This was followed by playing control room scientist in “Eve of Destruction,” and in one episode of “Rush” as Mistress Kang.

However, their relationship soon grows into something intimate and personal and Jack’s wife, Emma (played by Rachel Blanchard) joins the mix until the three develop a romance and even become financially committed to one another.

How old is Miya Cech? Age, Height, Parents, Net Worth, Dating

Published

on

Who is Miya Cech?

Miya Cech is a teen actress and model, who rose to fame with her roles in “The Darkest Minds”, “Are You Afraid of the Dark?”, and “Always Be My Maybe”. She was born under the Zodiac sign Pisces on 4 March 2007, in Tokyo, Japan. As of 2021, she is 14 years old and holds Japanese and American nationality.

Family, Bio, Wiki

She has been raised by her American adoptive parents ER. Cech and G.Cech in Northern California alongside three siblings Emi Marie, Kai Marie, and Nikko J, who are also adopted. Her older sister, Kai Marie, followed in Miya’s footsteps and launched an acting career as well, so far appearing in “So Close”, Rickard Lovely”, and “Marvelous and the Black Hole”.

https://www.instagram.com/p/CVobyFFvI8T/

While some children like to keep this type of personal information away from the public eye, Miya is far from that mindset. In her opinion, the fact that she was adopted allows her to use her voice and social platforms to support the adoption community, and reach out to other adopted children. In an interview, she disclosed: “I want adoption to be normalised, some kids need help and homes and families and that is super important for me. Everyone deserves to be loved and have a family and I want to be able to share that and represent that and you know inspire other families to adopt and that’s why it’s big for me.”

Rise to Stardom

She launched her career as a model at the age of four through her parents, featuring in various ads and on catwalks.

In an interview, she talked about the experience of having started a career at such a young age, Miya saying: ”My parents sacrificed a lot over the years, including just driving me everywhere. For school, though, we have teachers on set in both the modeling world and the acting world. “

She made her TV debut at the age of eight in 2015, appearing in an episode of the action crime series “Hawaii Five 0”. During the same year, Miya guest-starred in the comedy series “The Thundermans” and crime drama series “Hand of God”.

While many had high expectations considering the popularity of superhero movies in general, it appeared that those expectations weren’t met, as the film opened to an overwhelmingly negative reception and reviews, with criticism aimed at the generic, derivative, and predictable plot.

Miya also revealed that the whole crew had the pleasure of talking to the astronaut Chris Cassidy, to prepare for their roles and challenges while filming, she said: ” Chris Cassidy went to the international space station and we got to ask him questions that would help us in the show. We also did movement training; ee had a choreographer and we played this game where we’d push off of each other but we’d have to make it look like we were in zero gravity.”

Despite the positive reviews the series has garnered, it appears that Nickelodeon will not be renewing the show for another season.

She landed another lead role in 2021, in the coming-of-age drama movie “Marvelous and the Black Hole”, opposite Rhea Perlman. Working with Rhea was a one-of-time experience for Maya, and she has nothing but words of praise.

Additionally, working with the director Kate Tsang gave her insight into the works and process of directing, she said: “I’ve only worked with a couple of Asian-American directors, and because I want to be a director someday, getting to see that and putting myself in their shoes was amazing. It was a really fun project to work on all together.”

She recently partnered with Zigazoo, the fun and social platform for kids, and was featured as a celebrity guest reader of the children’s book entitled “The Eyes that Kiss in the Corners”.
