TV PRESS TOUR ’16 Containment Star George Young Reveals His Anniversary Plans!By Delaina Dixon | January 18, 2016 | Gals On The Town
ItΓÇÖs Main Event Monday DivaGals! We were stoked to spend some time with George Young, star of The CWΓÇÖs new drama Containment. He plays Dr. Victor Cannerts, whoΓÇÖs grappling with a world that been infected with a new virus that has no rate of survival ΓÇô and can be passed from person to person within six ft. of one another!
George┬áexplained in this medical catastrophe, the key to survival is self containment. If you think youΓÇÖre infected, you should quarantine yourself,ΓÇ¥ he shares of the imaginary disease. ΓÇ£ThereΓÇÖs a 48-hour incubation period, so you wait it out.ΓÇ¥ If you donΓÇÖt show any┬ásymptoms, you are in the clear.
Luckily, this is JUST a fictional drama. And thatΓÇÖs a good thing, since George is about to celebrate his first anniversary with his lovely wife Janet Hsieh on Jan.┬á22. ΓÇ£SheΓÇÖs a travel host … I just saw her in Taiwan,ΓÇ¥ George shared with us. ΓÇ£We got married in┬áAntarctica of all places. And we filmed the show around the whole thing. WeΓÇÖre celebrating our anniversary by going to Zanzibar [East Africa]. WeΓÇÖre doing an A-Z sort of thing.ΓÇ¥ Too cute!
If youΓÇÖre wondering about GeorgeΓÇÖs background, he has Chinese and Greek roots.
His dad is Malaysian.┬áΓÇ£We have this Chinese New Year thatΓÇÖs happening on the fifth of February. Me and my dad, we do a tea ceremony which is very traditional.ΓÇ¥
As for George’s┬ámom, ΓÇ£I eat a lot of Greek food with her and my grandmother — my┬áyiayia, which is Greek for grandmother,ΓÇ¥ he explained. ΓÇ£And IΓÇÖll watch My Big Fat Greek Wedding too, as all Greeks should.ΓÇ¥
Watch George battle the epidemic in Containment, coming to The CW this spring.
