Celebrity News

Zhao Liying appeared on Tencent Star Talk as a guest speak. She talked about how she was looked down upon to act main roles because of her round-face. She proved them wrong. She talked about how she was criticized as an actress because she was blunt. She proved herself with her works instead of words. She talked about her new role as Chu Qiao in Princess Agents:

“This drama covers a new concept of an independent woman. I don’t wish for people to keep seeing the concept of a woman fighting back and forth because of a guy. I wish to see them have their own dreams and chase after their beliefs. If men can have a heroic dreams then why can’t women!? Even though Chu Qiao is of low status, but she has her own mindset and ideology. After reading the novel, I fell in love with Chu Qiao the character. During filming, I was submerged in that character and shouldered the burdens alone. I realized that Chu Qiao is too tired. There was one line that Chu Qiao said “Back then I thought I can change everything, but I realized that I was too overconfident. I lost my family. I lost my friends. I thought I could change everything but I can’t change anything. There are limits to an individual’s power.” I understood her when I said that line. I cried when I saw the trailer because I saw how the crew worked to overcome the difficulties and breath life into this drama. Chu Qiao is able to air because of everyone’s perseverance and hard work. And it is teamwork that is the ultimate weapon to overcome obstacles.

It was a risk to act Chu Qiao because she is too strong of a character that most people cannot empathize. If you ask if I’m afraid of failure. Of course I am. But I cannot live in my life in shelter all the time. I have to step out and break free. I believe that life is more worth living as so. And my work as an actress is more meaningful.” – Zhao Liying

  1. It is not just Mao Zijun and YangZi, but they have been taking a lot of cast members from The Legend of Chusen from one drama to another. It is time to let it go, I need a different combo. Yangzi’s vibe in those still is not what I imagined.
    I am really happy ZLY finally announced some dramas. I am looking forward to Legend of Minglan. I hope she gets a good male lead. It has a great production team behind it.
    72 floors is getting really good, I am a Leo fangirl by this point. ❤


  2. I listened to part of the novel 知否知否应是绿肥红瘦, but dropped it because it was boring. Nonetheless, I’m still excited for the drama adaptation because ZLY!


    1. Hmm, I have it on my reading list but haven’t started the book as the genre isn’t really my type of tea but I’m excited to see how this drama looks as the production team is pretty good.


    2. Same here!!! I’m just happy that she finally got a confirmed drama going. Heard that the main guy might be Jerry Yan tho….Hahah hope that’s just a rumor.
