During the press conference of Forever Young on December 8th, Ziyi briefly talked about her role in the movie.

When Chinese superstar Zhang Ziyi recently appeared on stage to promote her upcoming movie Forever Young, she looked sad.

“I thought I’d died, but I woke up to see you. This time, I must find you before death seizes me,” she murmured, trembling slightly, while performing a scene from the movie.

Zhang, who is one of the top names among China’s celebrities, used the method to introduce her role in the movie.

In the film she plays Wang Minjia, a woman from the 1950s who leads a miserable life.

In the film the character suffers a number of misfortunes – from nearly being buried alive to having her face disfigured – which have a dramatic impact on her life.

Speaking about her role, Zhang says: “Without courage and endurance, an ordinary person would find it difficult to get through life.”
