Nadia Hatta, an award-winning international actress and TV personality with a career spanning Canada, USA, China, and Asia region, debuts on Netflix in the upcoming series, Away.
Inspired by a 2014 GQ article by Chris Jones about the “longest space mission in American history,” the fictional show follows the first international manned mission to Mars led by Commander Emma Green. Green is portrayed by two-time Academy Award-winning actress, Hillary Swank. Other familiar faces on the show are Josh Charles, Vivian Wu, Ato Essandoh, Mark Ivanir, and Ray Panthaki.
Working alongside so much talent, Hatta showcases her own portraying Mei Chen, a CapCom at NASA Mission Control Center. Chen goes through a complex and emotional journey of her own in a breathtaking storyline that will surely leave the audience in tears. This is Hatta’s North American television debut.
The talented team that made this cinematic and emotional series possible includes creator Andrew Hinderaker (Penny Dreadful), writer/showrunner Jessica Goldberg (The Path), executive producers Jason Katims (Parenthood, Friday Night Lights) and Matt Reeves (The Batman – 2021), and executive producer/director Edward Zwick (Blood Diamond, Shakespeare In Love, The Last Samurai) at the helm for creative direction.
