Behind The Helmet: My Interview with Jason Chan

I admit it: I enjoy some of the Power Rangers series. And Ninja Storm is among my favorites. And my love for toku, and this blog wouldn't exist without Ninja Storm.

When I was in high school, my senior year, I was flipping through channels and came upon a re-run of Ninja Storm. And I immediately liked it. It had me at the line: "What, you've never seen a chick in blue spandex walk on water before?" It didn't take itself seriously, it was a fun, entertaining series. And one of my favorite rangers on that show was Cam, who started out as the disgruntled techie, and then became the Green Samurai Ranger through an amazing journey.

As some of you know, I've been going to grad school in Singapore for the past few years, and Jason Chan, who played Cam currently lives and works here. I had the pleasure of meeting him for coffee, and interviewing him.

Here's the audio. I haven't used iMovie in a while, so it probably looks bad but it sounds good.

We talked about the audition process, stunt mishaps, guinea pig wrangling, elements, spandex.

Also, Jason has a production company in Singapore as well. Check it out:

All and all, it was a fun interview, and Jason is an awesome person!
