ISSUE: Spring 2013
Yung At Heart
Elodie Yung may kick some serious ass (with double katana swords!) as Jinx in the upcoming film G.I. Joe: Retaliation, but we get to the heart of what really matters to the French Cambodian actress.
In our interview, cover girl Elodie Yung told me that she’s not a model. In fact, this was her second cover shoot. But as you can see in this BTS video of our cover shoot at The Mountain Mermaid in Topanga Canyon – it didn’t matter. The G.I. Joe: Retaliation star was natural at it – and much more, a natural beauty. She radiated so much warmth on the set that everyone fell in love with her – and I promise, after you watch this video, you will too.
Is she gorgeous – or is she GORGEOUS?! G.I.: Retaliation star Elodie Yung graces our Spring 2013 cover, looking fresh and feminine – something that’s much different from her role as Jinx. She told us she has very little modeling experience – but she’s quite modest, I think she did perfectly fine.
I had the pleasure of interviewing Elodie in our cover story – and I can tell you it was one of those once in a lifetime experiences. As a Cambodian American woman working in the entertainment industry, I’m happy to see another Cambodian woman rising up as an actress. She’s one of the most down to earth women I’ve ever met – and I’ll never forget the stories we shared growing up as Cambodians in our respective hometowns (hers Paris, mines Long Beach). And yes, I made my Creative Director Diana King cry with the story — success!
