EXCLUSIVE: Ji-young Yoo says she was thrown in at “the deep end of things“ when she shot Prime Video‘s limited series Expats, playing the central figure of Mercy, a character around whom everyone else orbits. “I was thrown in,” she says laughing. “But it’s really been a whole super swim,” she says of playing Mercy, a Columbia graduate, in the six-part series written and directed by Lulu Wang.

Adapted from Janice Y.K Lee’s 2016 bestselling novel Expatriates, the series follows, from disparate points of view, the lives of three women who are part of the international community in Hong Kong, and who are drawn together following a heartbreaking tragedy.

Yoo’s first day on set in Hong Kong, with no prior rehearsal, had her shooting a huge key scene opposite Nicole Kidman, who plays Margaret, a landscape gardener who comes to know Mercy through tumultuous circumstances.  “Very, very intimidating, not because of anything Nicole has ever done.

She’s the sweetest and kindest, but she’s still Nicole Kidman,” says Yoo. “I was freaking out most of the time, not that anyone made me feel like I couldn’t do it.
