HBO Asia’s latest drama series “Invisible Stories” features Taiwanese actor Devin Pan, who plays the role of Brian, who has autism.

The promising 23-year-old actor has played different kinds of roles in theater and TV productions.


Pan described his character in the six-episode series as “challenging and a lot more different from the roles [he had] portrayed in the past.”

When asked how he was able to do it as natural and realistic as possible, he said through an interpreter, “I did some personal preparations—visited institutions of children with special needs to study their behaviors, to define and get a sense of my character in the story.”


Undeniably, his chemistry with coactor Yeo Yann Yann, who plays his mother in the pilot episode, has helped him pull it off.
