ELIZABETH, N.J., Oct. 26, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- ER. Mulan. The Joy Luck Club. Actress Ming-Na Wen has left an indelible mark on the entertainment landscape as the face (and voice) of some of the most iconic characters of our generation. In a light-hearted interview with Gerry Strauss, she talks about her favorite roles and admits to having been addicted to video games as a teenager.
"I grew up going to the arcade every day after school…and spent a lot of quarters," says Ming-Na, who recently voiced Agent May in the Lego Marvel Super Heroes video game. "I just think it's the coolest thing that I'm in [video] games now. It's so crazy."
The Q&A serves as the linchpin for the magazine's Game Theory theme, which explores the "game" concept in a myriad of ways.
In "State of Play," Luke Sacher looks at New Jersey's status as the epicenter of Game Theory, while Mark Stewart reports on the world of professional video gaming—and the advent of college "eSports" scholarships
—in "No Longer a Game." Caleb MacLean provides homeowners with a how-to for transforming an underutilized basement into a family "Fun Dungeon." And Andy Clurfeld reviews Clydz of New Brunswick, which features wild game on its innovative menu.
The Game Theory Issue includes two photography features. Nadine Raphael employed play areas for her back-to-school fashion shoot ("Child's Play") and for "Game On" Avery Brighton traveled to Cuba, capturing the island's timeless scenery before tourism wipes it away.
The magazine's popular Healthy Edge health & wellness section updates readers on the hospital's $18.7 million Emergency Department transformation and checks in with four members of that department to get a feel for what it's like to work in that stressful but rewarding environment.
Another member of the Trinitas family, Sister Rosemary Moynihan, is the focus of the "5 Minutes with…" page. She talks about her meeting with Pope Francis earlier this year. "He was very warm and unassuming, and looked you right in the eye," she recalls. "It was intimate and extremely touching."
