JJ talks all things getting her through lockdown and the first thing she’ll do after.
Gorgeous actress JJ Fong has brightened up our screens on Shortland Street, Step Dave, Go Girls and Flat3, and soon we’ll be able to see her battle it out against Art Green, Kimberley Crossman, Buck Shelford and many other famous faces on Celebrity Treasure Island. Here, she gives us the lowdown on our latest lockdown.
What do you love about lockdown?
That there are no cars on the road! Running and walking have been quite a treat without navigating traffic.
What do you loathe about lockdown?
Thinking about families in lower socio-economic communities that can’t cope. It’s bad enough for my friends who have resources, it gets me down when I read about them in the news.
Favourite lockdown food or drink?
Currently making these 2-ingredient flatbreads! All you need is yoghurt and self-raising flour!
Best lockdown exercise?
Back into my running…lord knows I need it with all the eating going on.
What are you binge-watching?
Ted Lasso! Also Sophie: A Murder in West Cork on Netflix is an intriguing doco!
What are you reading?
My fellow acting friend Michelle Langstone’s book called “Times Like These”. I have wept!
What podcasts would you recommend?
I really love Mary Holm and Jesse Mulligan on RNZ. Mary has great financial advice.
What have you knocked off your lockdown to-do list?
Probably reading Michelle’s book. Ha! Reading ANY books has been a real treat this lockdown.
What item of lockdown clothing could you not live without?
My “Creamerie” cast and crew hoodie. I basically live in the thing.
First thing you’ll do in Level 2?
Go see my Ma and Pa 🙂
