Ask Mina Anwar

Daniel Keedwell: What do you think makes TV to Go different to other sketch shows that are on TV?

Mina Anwar: That's a hard question. I think it's a combination of the people who are in it. We're all very different and bring different things to the show - age, experience. We get on very well and are very creative together. You get some very hilarious gag bits, while some things are just very interesting to watch and the gag comes at the end of it.

Kamz: Hi Mina. I am a big fan of yours and I just wanted to say how talented and beautiful you are.

Mina: Thank you very much Kamz. That's very kind!

Viresh1: Hi, I am an Asian trying to get into comedy. Did you find it hard at first to get going?

Mina: I'm not really a comedian. I'm an actress who happened to do a job that was comedy the first time I did television. I think it was a lot to do with being at the right place at the right time and working very hard to get there. It was just coincidence that I got into comedy. I could have done a big drama and gotten into drama. It's just the way this business works. Being Asian didn't help or hinder me. I don't wear it as a shield.
