After a historic year that saw her marry and become the first Asian to win the Oscar for Best Actress, Michelle Yeoh is now a "grandmother." The actress attended the screening of her upcoming series The Brothers Sun on January 6. While interacting with media personnel at the event, the actress shared which film of hers will she not show her newborn grandchild.

On the red carpet at the Los Angeles premiere of her Netflix series The Brothers Sun, she asked Yeoh what film of hers she would want her grandson, Maxime, to see first. Yeoh mused for a while, bringing up her upcoming project, Jon M. Chu’s Wicked, in which she plays school headmistress Madame Morrible, before ultimately deciding against it, reports Variety.
“I was thinking, I’ve done a musical, Wicked. … I play a witch,” Yeoh said, referencing Madame Morrible’s status as a villain and her desire for her grandson to not see her as one." “What is not going to traumatise them?” She concluded: “Maybe not one of my movies. Until they’re older.” Yeoh then joked about audiences witnessing her singing in the upcoming “Wicked” films: “I say, ‘Good luck to you all.'”
All about the Michelle Yeoh starrer Wicked
The two-part Wicked is adapted from the Broadway musical of the same name, which in turn was adapted from Gregory Maguire’s novel Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West (which was based off of L. Frank Baum’s novel The Wonderful Wizard of Oz). It follows the ostracised, green-skinned Elphaba (Cynthia Erivo) and how she became the Wicked Witch of the West. The story specifically traces Elphaba’s complex relationship with classmate Glinda (Ariana Grande), who later becomes Glinda the Good. Yeoh’s character, Madame Morrible, is the corrupt headmistress of Shiz University where Elphaba and Glinda meet, and has singing parts in popular songs from the musical such as The Wizard and I and Thank Goodness.
The actress is awaiting the release of her Netflix action-comedy series The Brothers Sun, released on Thursday, which sees Yeoh starring as Mama Sun, mother of the Sun brothers, Charles (Justin Chien) and Bruce (Sam Song Li). When the brothers’ father, a Taiwanese triad leader, is shot, Charles travels to Los Angeles to protect his mother and brother, only to find that trouble has followed them from Taiwan — and that his mother knows more than she lets on.
