Chi Nguyen

Actor – Phi Nguyen

Chi Nguyen Thi Kim Chi yes, you read it correctly: Kim Chi like the spicy Korean dish. So it goes without saying that Chi is a massive food addict, live-to-eat-not-eat-to-live kind of girl. She is also a drama queen since birth, a professional shower-singer, a Sudoku enthusiast and a loud and proud Hufflepuff. Chi has just completed her three-year Acting training at the Victorian College of the Arts, and the greatest things she has learned from the experience is a- it’s OK to be different, b- talking to yourself is in fact quite normal and c- eating Tim Tams for breakfast when you’re in a stressful period is extremely comforting (but don’t read the nutrition facts – may cause crying).

Co-Creator/Actor/Executive Producer
Actor – Kim Huong Nguyen
​Diana named after the Princess, was born to be a doctor, to buy a house at 19 – wait 2 houses and no BF until after university. None of that happened, but the disappointment continues. She is 34 playing a 42 year old mum, not married and no grandchildren for her mum…WHEN WILL IT END?!?! Diana also likes to stand up, and has performed two solo shows Dirty Diana and Naked – not related to each other, and as toured Australia, USA and Edinburgh Fringe in 2017. Since the debut of Phi and Me in 2011, Diana’s life has changed. Instead of acting 50% of the time with 4-5 jobs, she is now working creatively full time 100%, and is grateful for the confidence Kim Huong has given her. Her TV credits include – Underbelly for 20 seconds, Please Like Me for 20 seconds, Upper Middle Bogan for 20 seconds, Jack Irish for 20 seconds, Fancy Boy for 2 mins (Yeah), tv time includes for guest on Q&A ABC, Guest on Friday Front Bar, and Fox Footy.

Fiona Chau

Co-Creator
Fiona is short. No matter how hard she tried she could never grow any taller, “Damn you Asian genes.” While trying to meditate in a zen forest surrounded by pandas in Japan, she contemplated on how to use her vertically challenged body to its fullest potential. She looked down at her list titled ‘Dream Jobs’ and quickly crossed off ‘Professional Basketball player’. Five minutes later after watching bamboo grow, it dawned on her as to why she put on Earth. This pivotal moment of realisation has since then been dubbed by scientists, as ‘The Emancipation of Phi’. But one does not simply wake up and become Phi. After TEOP occurred Fiona spent many years training the inner Phi. In 2011 her character debuted at the Melbourne Comedy Festival, and again in 2012…. it was epic. Too bad this year she is taking a break from the stage. But there is no need to panic she will be back! And she is BACK!
