MyChonny is the Asian-Australian YouTube star stepping onto the big screen
There are only a handful of YouTube stars who have made the switch to television and film, names including EpicMealTime’s Harley Morenstein, singer Troye Sivan and comedian Bo Burnham.
Australian YouTuber MyChonny, real name John Luc, is the latest to make the switch. The YouTuber has 2.3 million subscribers globally, and unlike many who’ve made the jump before him — he’s not playing a bit part or an extra in a movie
He is also doing his bit to challenge Australia’s well-known lack of cultural diversity in film, TV and theatre.
