She said making “The Grandmaster” was a long and difficult experience but it was fulfilling.
“Thank you director Wong Kar-wai for allowing me to encounter Gong Er at the most difficult time of my life and for encouraging me to be brave and believe in myself. I did it,” the 34 year-old Zhang said in her acceptance speech at the awards.
