Michelle Krusiec

"What makes Alice Wu's debut so pleasurable is its easy rhythms, its sly juxtapositions, and its relaxed but funny performances. A generous straight man, Krusiec gives the film emotional heft...."---Slate

I'm in Norway at the moment about to begin shooting a film called, "True North," directed by Asif Kapadia. Check out Asif's other film, "The Warrior." He's a very talented director. This film stars Michelle Yeoh, Sean Bean and yours truly. This story is a bizarre love triangle set in the arctic. I'm obviously very excited to be working with this cast and the story is really compelling. Needless to say, I'll be a little out of touch as we are planning to go further north into the arctic circle.

The other evening I saw the Aurora Borealis and it was simply spectacular. I hope in your lifetime, you guys will get a chance to witness such an incredible natural/scientific phenomenon. I thought I was being abducted by aliens!

Take care everyone.

A thousand thanks (Norwegian thank you) from Michelle.

Dear Michelle
I just finished watching Saving Face and I am totally love'n it. I enjoy the movie so much and I even told my friend to watch it.

I also love your character in the movie. A character that has to confront between the old gereration and her own life.

Anyway, I just love your acting and the movie plot.

By the way, I am from Taiwan...haha.

Hope to see your next movie soon.

hi michelle,
I just wanted to say that your acting is extremely wonderful and original. I watched Saving Face two weeks ago and I started reading all about the movie, the director, all the lead casts, interviews and finally I found your blog. It's just that I never get tired to know everything about this movie and the casts. It totally inspired me and I want to thank you for being in this movie and bringing out the character so well. I'm actually even more impressed to find your real person (via your interviews and videos) much different from the character (outgoing, energized, sociable) which shows how good you are as an actor. You're totally professional. Keep up your good work and I hope to seeing you more in future movies and you'll always get support from me :-)

Dear Michelle,

I haven’t been following your performances in the past. My TV is never on; the only thing I watch if I watch any at all is the Food Network and Animal Planet. Last week, I rented Saving Face from blockbuster and you were incredible. Alice Wu wrote a fantastic story and the “Wil” you played was a character which was unforgettable and engrossed in the heart of viewers. I should speak for myself, but I’m sure many others will agree with me. I am looking forward to see True North in theater. Michelle Yeoh is another one of my favorite Asian actresses.

I wish I can see the Aurora once in my lifetime as well. Wish you all the best and good health.

Stay warm,
Love Lily

Hi Michelle,
After watching clips of Saving Face on YouTube, I was thinking to myself hm........ she looks really familiar like one of the hosts' of travelers. And I was right! *SMILE*.

I was impressed by your performance in Saving Face and now can't wait to watch the whole movie. You put in a fantastic performance. Have to say you are the first Asian female actress to break all taboos to take on a lesbian role and portray it so realistically.

Wish I was in the USA, so I could catch more of your performances. Good luck with your work in Norway.
