Actor Brian Chin is about to make his television debut in a big way – with an appearance on “Grey’s Anatomy” in what will possibly be the most-watched episode of the season.
That’s right; this young actor will be turning up in the episode titled, “We Are Never Getting Back Together,” which just happens to be the episode that will wish farewell to one of its original and most beloved cast members, Sandra Oh.
After growing up in Orange County, California, Brian made his way across the country to study at the renowned New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts. A recent grad, Brian has now made his way to Hollywood and landed his first network TV gig.
We recently caught up with Brian Chin to find about his first TV role and more.
Tell us about your role on ABC’s “Grey’s Anatomy”.
BRIAN: I play an airline clerk opposite of Sandra Oh.
How was it making your TV debut on an episode bidding farewell to one of the small screens veterans?
BRIAN: I've always looked up to Sandra Oh for inspiration, not only because she's been an iconic part of the show for 10 years, but also because she's an actress that genuinely cares about the craft. It was such a great learning experience for me and definitely an honor to be in her farewell episode.
Any fun or interesting stories from the set you can share?
BRIAN: When I walked into the makeup trailer, Sandra Oh thought I looked like a minor! After I told her I had just recently graduated from college, she jumped up and gave me a hug. All the makeup and hair people also congratulated me and couldn't have been more supportive.
You’re also in the comedy web series “The Roommates,” tell us about this project.
BRIAN: "The Roommates" is a web series that focuses on the lives of two roommates looking for a third to move in. They decide to do their search via Craigslist, which brings in the craziest and weirdest people in town. And since it's set in Hollywood, let's just say things get very weird.
Anything else on the horizon you can share with us?
BRIAN: I'm currently producing and developing my own music inspired project and will be starring in a indie film that is not yet revealed. Also, I am one of 12 actors in the inaugural NYU Tisch Alumni Showcase on May 29th.
And finally, how can fans keep up with your budding career?
BRIAN: I am very active on social media, so that's the best way to keep up with me.
