Midori Francis joined us on the Popternative show to discuss her new film Unseen, which will be available to stream on March 7th on MGM+. The thriller centers on two women who form an unlikely connection when Sam (Jolene Purdy), a gas station clerk, receives a misdialed call from Emily (Midori Francis), who is running from her murderous ex-boyfriend in the woods. Having lost her glasses in her escape, Emily must rely on Sam’s eyes using the video call in order to survive. The film also stars Missi Pyle and Michael Patrick Lane.

Midori can currently be seen on the successful ABC drama series Grey’s Anatomy as Dr. Mika Yasuda, and the hit HBO Max series The Sex Lives of College Girls as Alicia, the leader of the Essex College Women’s Center. She also starred as Lily in the Netflix series Dash & Lily (2020), which landed Midori a Daytime Emmy nomination for the role, and in the Universal film Good Boys (2019).

In our interview, Midori describes reading the script for the first time: “The script had so many great things about it, I was touched by the ending, I was touched that it wasn’t your normal thriller.” She also credits director Yoko Okumura who makes her feature-length film debut with Unseen: “I got the impulse we needed somebody at the helm of this who was going to really be the leader and get all of these pieces together, and that’s Yoko. And she crushed it.” We also discuss some of her other projects including the horror series The Burch and the comedy film Good Boys.

Watch the interview with Midori below.

Unseen will be available to stream on MGM+ and On Demand on March 7th.
