Can you tell us more about yourself?

I am a model; also an actress. I was born in China, lived in Australia, and am now based in Paris.

How did you get started in the entertainment industry?

It has been my dream since I was a kid; the universe led me this way, and I feel this is in my blood.

What do you like most about acting?

To experience other peoples’ lives, to understand the world from a different angle. Life is all about experiencing.

How different is it to act in a movie and to act in a TV series? And which one do you prefer?

More flexibility and more space for creation for actors in films. I prefer films to TV series.

What are your weak points when it comes to acting? How do you try to improve them?

Sometimes I needed to be more confident to be 100% natural and overcome my fear in front of the camera.

In order to improve that, I will have to build my self-concept and pretend there is no camera at all or any audience. I mean, nothing will happen, right?

What are your strong points as an actor?

My emotions. And my willingness to show them off to the whole world. That’s the way how I connect to the world. I believe all humans are “All-in-one.”

What have you learned from the directors that you have worked with throughout your career?

James is brilliant, and he has impeccable interpersonal skills. He has influenced me by nature of friendly and obliging and his presentation in the “Malibu crush” film production.

What are some of the difficulties of the acting business?

Ethnicity barriers for Asian actors.

What’s challenging about bringing a script to life?

To develop a deeper understanding of roles more than just the surface level. For example, the culture and history context, and psychological background, hence I need to read a lot. Acting is more challenging than it seems.

What do you do when you’re not filming?

Self-development and creation. I am learning different knowledge. Modelling, Writing, doing sports, and having a good heart for life.

What has been the most memorable experience of your career so far?

My MESSIKA campaign in 2021 was the first time I did a global campaign; the designer was fantastic. I love her.

Who have been the most interesting people you’ve met so far?

A lot. There isn’t a specific person I can point out.

If someone is going to make your life into a movie, who would play you?

Someone as tough and as persistent as me – someone who was even beaten to rock bottom but still can come back stronger.

What are your future plans? Inside your career or out of it.

I would continue my modeling and acting career, of course, but meanwhile, I would like to become a writer.

Is there is anything else interesting you can tell us?

I cook well and hide my secret recipe somewhere nobody can guess.
