If you watched "Freedom Writers," the inspiring Hilary Swank film that told the real-life story of a teacher and her students at a Long Beach school, then you've seen how talented Jaclyn Ngan is.
In the movie, the 18-year-old actress memorably played Sindy, a hardened Cambodian student, but Jaclyn is actually of Filipino, Chinese and Spanish descent. "Freedom Writers" was her first professional acting job.
Her newest project is “Not All Lost,” a play written by a 15-year-old playwright, Michelle Yoon.
The play will have a world premiere at Greenway Court Theatre in Hollywood, on Friday, April 27, 2007 at 7:00 p.m.; Saturdays, April 28, May 5 and May 13, 2007 at 3:00 p.m.; Sundays, April 29 and May 6, 2007 at 3:00 p.m. and Fridays, May 4 and May 11, 2007 at 4:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. General Admission is Pay-What-You-Can and the show is free for Students.
