'Always keep learning' Searching star Michelle La reveals how she prepares for acting roles and more

Searching is a Sundance-winning, break-out hit that smashed the box office, grossing £54 million ($70m) on a budget of just £780, 000 ($1m). The film follows the disappearance of 16-year-old Margot as her father (John Cho) desperately tries to find her with the help of a police detective (Debra Messing). Here Mandy News has the pleasure of talking to Searching's lead actress Michelle La about how she went from studying science to becoming an actress, how she got an agent and her process of being Margot on screen.
