Behind-the-Scenes Interviews

[Interview with Yawng Neiwen]


The open casting of Huang Rong in The Legend of the Eagle was finally decided upon by Weng Meiling. For a newcomer, her luck is enviable.
But at the same time, there are a thousand pairs of eyes on her, watching her make mistakes and picking out her flaws. Weng Meiling is no one else.

"I know I'm not good enough in terms of acting skills and experience. So I have to spend ten times more time and effort than others to learn. If people ask me how I got the role of Huang Rong, I can only answer that I was lucky. But in the days to come, I have to face people with my performance and tell them that the role has not been wasted."

She is a delicate woman, but she is very determined in her words.

There is no doubt that she has worked very hard, and the audience can even feel in front of the screen how dedicated she is. It is an undeniable fact that she is struggling. At first she is very deliberate in her acting and the effect is very unnatural, but gradually she gets into the scene and performs appropriately. She is as intelligent and clever as Huang Rong under Jin Yong's pen. I believe that with time she will become a skilled actress, and her first performance has given us all confidence that she is good material.

"I hope that after 'The Eagle', I will not be only cast in a fashion drama, because I don't think I want to be limited, otherwise I won't have a long artistic life," she said.

She sighed at the time and said, "It's not easy being an artist nowadays. It's not just acting."

She was not satisfied with what she had achieved.

"I wish God had given me five more years of youth, five years younger, it would have been a different story."

She feels that in addition to acting, an artist has to have the courage to take on challenges when the company has an announcement to sing, dance or perform dangerous acts.

Apart from her career, her love, her loving mother and grandfather, and her mortgage, she feels that she has not lost anything in the past few years. She has only one regret: God did not grant her prayers for an extra five years of youth.

射鵰幕後訪談

【訪談亞翁內文】
「射鵰英雄傳」的黃蓉公開選角,最後落在翁美玲身上。 以一個新人來說, 她的運氣是令人羨慕的。
但同時,亦有千對眼睛盯著她,看她出錯,挑她的缺點。翁美玲到底不是別人。

「我知道自己無論是演技與經驗都不足,
 所以我得比別人花上十倍的時間和努力去學習。」

「別人若問我憑什麼獲的黃蓉一角,我現在祇可答他是
 運氣好。但接下來的日子,我卻必須以演出的成績去
 面對別人,告訴他們角色沒有被浪費。」
 外表嬌弱的她說起話來卻是異常堅定。

她無疑是非常的努力,觀眾甚至能在螢光幕前感覺到翁美玲的盡心。她是吃力的,這點是無可否認的事實,初時她很刻意的去做戲,效果很不自然,但漸漸就入戲,也表現得恰如其分了。她的聰明伶俐實不下於金庸筆下的黃蓉。相信假以時日,她必能成為有演技的演員,她的初次表現給與大家信心,她是塊好料子。

「希望在拍罷『射鵰』之後,有份演時裝劇,我覺得角色不能局限,否則藝術生命就不會長。」她說。

翁美玲做電視的日子不算短,對於這份工作,當時她嘆了口氣說:「現在做藝員可不容易啊!點止演戲咁簡單。」 原來她是對自己的成就未感滿意。

「我希望,上帝多給我五年青春,讓我年輕五歲,那局面就完全不同了。」她覺得,做藝員除了演戲,還要兼顧各方面的才華及膽識,假如公司有通告,要唱歌,要跳舞,或者表演危險動作,都要有接受挑戰的勇氣。

總結起來,翁美玲在娛樂圈是得多於失,除了事業、愛情,有疼她的契媽、契爺,還供了一層樓,她甚至覺得這幾年,根本沒有損失過什麼。她只有一個遺憾:上帝沒有垂允她的祈求,並未賞賜她額外的五年青春。
