100 Women: Chipo Chung on identity, acting and activism

21 October 2013 Last updated at 11:51 BST

Chipo Chung is a Chinese-Zimbabwean actor and social activist.

She spent her early years in a war zone with her "radical" mother, who lived with baby Chipo in the Mozambican refugee camp where she worked.

Of mixed race, and from a diaspora, Chipo says she has always been an outsider.

But, for the BBC's 100 Women Series, she explains how her ability to adapt has helped not just her acting, but breaking into British society.
