A fatter wallet, a thinner waistline, Weng Mei-ling still thinks it's worth it.

[Interview with Yawng Neiwen]


Since her role as Wong Yung, Weng Meiling's popularity has skyrocketed and she has become a new star in the film and television industry.

Nowadays, she is acting in one drama after another, and after her role in "The Master's Execution", she only has a short break before her new drama "The King of Rusty Bridge" comes out. She took a short break to appear on stage in Singapore during the broadcast of "The Master's Execution", but she started to lose weight because of the hard work.

"Yes, many people said I had lost a lot of weight, but I didn't notice it too much. I don't think I've lost too much weight," she says. It's just that I don't notice it too much," says Weng Meiling.

She didn't realise she had lost weight because she didn't have time to notice. If she were to look at the cover photo of an earlier issue of Golden TV, she would be able to tell the difference from the one she has now.

"I've seen that portrait too, and it's not even close to the same size. I don't have the time to decide, and I don't get enough sleep, so I've lost weight."
Weng Meiling's eyes are getting bigger and bigger because the flesh on his cheeks is shrinking.

"Have you ever thought about gaining weight? You look haggard too."

"No, it's just a matter of time, we're actors. It's hard to plan to gain weight. It's hard to plan to gain weight, but if you do, you'll lose ten years of experience in a hurry. So we should just let him develop naturally."

Weng Meiling has a point. Many actors lose weight in direct proportion to the number of films they do, and gaining weight is just a matter of thinking about it. She says she is not afraid of being crippled and sees it as a good opportunity to practice, so she is happy to act in as many dramas as possible.

"What are the surprises or special things that happened this time?"

"Gains? I've made some extra money. I went on stage to make some real money. Something special? Nothing. But the fans there are really enthusiastic. Every day, many people come to the hotel lobby or the concert hall. I sometimes saw them waiting at the entrance of the theatre when I returned from the stage and had a snack, it was almost three or four o'clock, and they were mostly fans who couldn't get tickets or didn't have money to buy tickets. They were very patient and devoted," she says. "The majority of children were there, some of them even went for a few nights in a row. You know, when we sing, we always say a round of introductory remarks before we bring out the title of the song. But every time when I was in the middle of a song or when I wanted to bring out the title, they were already there for me, which was embarrassing. I was embarrassed to find out later that they came every night. There was a look of joy on her face."

She has a great audience, especially children, eight out of ten are her fans. And her fan club is dominated by children.

In her latest appearance, she only brought ten songs with her, including Chinese, English and Mandarin songs, and was in a hurry. She will start working on "Rusty Bridge" as soon as it is finished. However, it has been announced that all artists are not allowed to take leave for the five months from April to August, so will there be any exceptions? We will have to wait and see.

錢包胖了,腰圍瘦了 

翁美玲依然認為那很值得

【訪談亞翁內文】
自演黃蓉一角後,翁美玲知名度飛升,成了影視圈的一顆新紅星,入行時間不久,已擁有影迷會,是圈中少有的例子,亦證明了翁美玲受歡迎的程度。

現在的翁美玲劇集一個接一個的演,演完「天師執位」,只休息一陣,即有新劇「生銹橋王」派到,想好好休息甚難矣。播著「天師執位」時,她利用短短的空檔時間,去了新加坡登台,不料因捱得辛苦,她開始出現「骨感」了。

「是啊,許多人都說我瘦了許多,倒是我自己
 不覺太明顯。」翁美玲說。
她沒發覺自己瘦,只是因為沒時間去理會而已,如果阿翁重看早數期的金電視,那張封面照和現在的相一併,定能分別出來,那時的她面圓,雙夾飽滿而充滿朝氣,和現在的略帶憔悴,真的差了一

「那張像我也看過,簡直差了一圈,不過演電視,
 時間不由自己決定,睡眠不足,自然消瘦啦。」
 阿翁的眼睛越來越大,皆因兩頰的肉越來越縮水。

「有沒有想過增肥,太瘦不好看的,
 人看上來也憔悴許多。」

「冇啊,一切都順其自然吧,做我們演員的,
 一是沒得做,一是就沒得停,很難有計劃的去增肥,
 就是增了,一趕戲,十年道行亦一朝喪,
 所以任由他自然發展好了。」

阿翁說的有理,很多演員一但要拍戲,體重變成正比的銳減,增肥,多是得個想字罷了。阿翁表示唔怕會拍殘,視那為磨練的好機會,所以劇集再多亦樂意演。

「今次登台可有什麼意外收穫,或特別事情發生?」
「收穫?咪賺到外快囉,去登台還不是為了搵真銀。
 特別事情呀!冇乜吖。不過那邊的影迷很熱情是真的。每天都有很多人到酒店大堂或歌

劇院門口等候,有時我登完台,吃完宵夜回去,還見到他們等著,那時差不多三、四點
 了,他們多是買不到票或沒錢買票的影迷,很有耐性且很痴心。」
 翁美玲很被他們的熱情所感動。

「還有就是去捧場的小朋友佔了多數,有些還一連去了
 幾晚,你知道啦,我們唱歌時,總是講一輪開場白,
 才將歌名帶出唱的,但每次當我講到一半或想帶出
 歌名時,他們已經替我接上去,尷尬得很,後來才知
 他們晚晚都來的,真是熱情可感。」
 翁美玲面上呈現喜悅神色。
 翁美玲確實很有觀眾緣,特別是小孩,十個碰上八個
 是她的影迷,她的影迷會亦以小孩佔多數。

最近一次登台,翁美玲只帶了十首歌,其中包括,中文和英文和國語歌,因為時間急迫,錄影完「天師執位」立即告出發,莫說是練習,就連預備功夫也無法做足,幸好那邊的影迷並不著重她的歌藝,再加上她的膽色和自信心,故這次登台相當成功,演唱完立即又接了下一台,那是吉隆坡夜總會,待「生銹橋王」拍竣,即會著手籌備。

不過早聞無線聲明四月至八月這五個月,所有藝員不得請假,翁美玲能否例外?日後始有揭曉了。
