Cast announced for Five Blind Dates

Filming is currently underway in Sydney on romantic comedy with Shuang Hu, Rob Collins & Yoson An.

Prime Video today confirmed casting for Australian Amazon Original movie Five Blind Dates.

The romantic comedy tells the story of a tenacious tea shop owner who is told by a fortuneteller that she will find her soulmate on one of the next five dates she goes on.

The cast is led by co-writer Shuang Hu (The Family Law, Ronny Chieng: International Student) as Lia with Yoson An (Mulan, New Gold Mountain) as Richard; Jon Prasida (Kung Fu, Tomorrow When the War Began) as Ezra; Desmond Chiam (With Love, Reef Break, The Falcon And The Winter Soldier) as Apollo; Ilai Swindells (SLiDE, Open Slather, Redfern Now) as Mason; Renee Lim (Please Like Me, Palm Beach, Clickbait) as Jing, Lia’s Mum and Tiffany Wong (Prey School) as Alice, Lia’s Sister.

Rob Collins (Total Control, Firebite) will feature as Curtis and Tzi Ma (Mulan, Rush Hour, Kung Fu) as Xien, Lia’s father.

“I am so thrilled by this wonderful cast, led by the multi-talented Shuang Hu, who with Nathan Ramos-Park, has delivered a story that audiences around the world will fall in love with, as I did when I first read it,” said director Shawn Seet.

Filming is currently underway in Sydney.

Whilst visiting her family in her hometown for her sister Alice’s (Wong) engagement festivities, Lia Ling (Hu) finds herself at a comedically tumultuous family luncheon with her best friend Mason (Swindells) and is gifted an unwelcomed prophecy that she will soon meet her suitor. Her family, unsure of Lia’s ability to discern a partner for herself, decides to set her up on five blind dates. Even though her true passion and current focus lie in saving her traditional tea-shop back in Sydney— tea-making being a passion inherited from her grandmother—Lia reluctantly agrees to go on these dates.

Five Blind Dates is produced by Amazon Studios and Goalpost Pictures Australia, with Goalpost’s Kylie du Fresne as producer and Ben Grant and Rosemary Blight as executive producers. Shuang Hu and Nathan Ramos Park are the co-writers and producers.
