Yesterday, Ziyi was in Guangzhou to attend the 2017 Film Gala. She was awarded the prize of “Film Staff of the Year“. Ziyi’s last film The Wasted Times was named “Recommended Film of the Year“, while Yan Ni won the prize of “Recommended Supporting Actress of the Year“. The Birth of an Actor was also honored with “Business Model of the Year“.


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.”

She also stated she didn’t watch the completed fim yet.


Last night aired in China the 8th episode of The Birth of an Actor. Peter Chan and Sandra Ng were present, while Ziyi took part in a play based on Zhang Yuan’s Seventeen Years.


While promoting Buccellati a few weeks ago, Ziyi was interviewed by @gogoboi for Gogo套客TALK. She talked about her work on The Birth of an Actor, Forever Young and a bit about Godzilla and why she accepted this offer.


A new behind-the-scenes video of Forever Young was released today. Ziyi talks a bit about her character here.


The 7th episode of The Birth of an Actor is now online. The actress Tao Hong was present as a guest judge for a second time.
