I think I know the girl who's IMDB's "Please Meet..." actor of the day.
I met a Yi Ding in Berkeley, which she attended according to her bio. I have vague memories of her having some attachment to The Joy Luck Club, but that could just be me filling in information from the bio at this point. She was looking for writers for a TV show she was trying to get off the ground about American students in China, to be written and produced in English but aired with subtitles in Chinese markets. I sent her samples of my writing and never heard back from her, but I still have her email in my Hotmail address book.
And now she's one of the obscure actors on IMDB's front page. Weird.
Oh, and, no, my paper's still not done.
