It was not easy to write, but when I finished, I didn't know where to start. Recently, since being selected to play Huang Rong, many people suddenly pay attention to me, which makes me a little flattered.

I am a fatalistic believer who conforms to nature and is content with fate. I have told reporters many times that Huang Rong's election may be the arrangement of fate. I have never thought about it in advance. In a word, the company arranged for me to audition, so I went.

In fact, am I really worth your attention? I don't know it myself. I only know to do my best, no matter what the result is, I just want to live up to myself.

Less reading martial arts novels

I never thought I would play Huang Rong. I have lived in England for 12 years and seldom read martial arts novels. I have never read the famous original work of Jin Yong, "biography of Shooting Heroes".

I have benefited a lot from my return to Hong Kong, which has been separated for 12 years, and participated in the Miss Hong Kong election. Therefore, I don't think that the only purpose of running for the election is to win the throne. The important thing is to learn from them and broaden their knowledge.

Although it's not a great thing to be elected Huang Rong, at least give me a chance to try some new roles and learn more experience. I'm not asking myself to step into the sky. I just want to step into the role step by step.

After all, I am a newcomer and have little experience in acting, so I hope that with the careful guidance of the director, I can help me play this role well. Having said that, I can't completely rely on others. I should try my best.

Try to figure out the characteristics of color angle

So far, I have watched three of the four episodes of "shooting carving" and now I have entered the fourth episode. Although I dare not say that I can master Huang Rong's character completely, I have basically figured out the characteristics of the character.

I would have said to myself, "Weng Meiling, you can never stand in front of the camera with no expression. You have to show something. Really, I can't live up to the expectations of the audience for Huang Rong, and I can't waste all the efforts of the staff involved in the "shooting sculpture".

Although I have high requirements for myself, I do not increase my psychological pressure because of this. I hope everything can come naturally. "Thirteen sisters" is my first series in my life. I think it's very natural in terms of performance. I wonder if people will feel the same way after watching it? Although I don't play as much as I do in shooting sculpture, I believe that the experience of thirteen sisters will be helpful to my performance.

It's true that I can't consolidate my experience as a rookie. However, I will never imitate others. Weng Meiling is Weng Meiling and should have her own way. It has nothing to do with me because I can't follow other people's line. I have to break away from other people's category and create another image of Huang Rong. Only in this way can I be worthy of the audience's love for me.

Don't spoil the original

I can't help but think of the enthusiastic audience. They love me so much as a new artist. I can't believe it. No matter I go to the streets, there are a group of enthusiastic fans who ask me to autograph and take pictures with them. I felt unnatural at first, but now I'm used to it. What makes me happiest is when they yell, "Huang Rong! Here comes Huang Rong. "I can't help but feel sweet.

Not only did the audience call me that, but even the staff who recorded "women's new look" every time they saw me, they cried out, "Hello, Weng! "I think that I may want to abandon my English name Barbara and change it to yellow Wong, which will be more acceptable!

Even though "shooting carving" has not been my part, in daily life, I have unconsciously become the embodiment of Huang Rong. I have heard some friends I don't know very well said in private, "do you think that Weng Meiling's manner is much more beautiful than before? "

Hearing this, I secretly smile. Of course, I should melt myself into the pretty huangrong. Do they want to see an "ancient bag of huangrong"? This huangrong is not easy to make! Even "pretty" also needs to be cultivated. I ask myself that Huang Rong's "pretty" is not as good as Huang Rong's, but I hope to make Huang Rong more beautiful. I want to show myself (Huang Rong) on the screen, so that the audience will leave a deep impression, not to spoil Mr. Jin Yong's famous works!

Confident to play well

It's not easy for me to play such a popular novel character. I don't know anything about martial arts. It can be said that I can dance with swords and spears and jump around. I'm really surprised. But with the careful guidance of martial arts guidance, I think I will be able to cope with it.

If I had known that I wanted to "be in the Wulin", I might have gone to the mountain to learn from my master. But I was the first audition on that day. After the audition in the morning, I had to shoot "Thirteen girls" in the afternoon. When I was in a hurry, I couldn't see the performance of other competitors and I didn't know how I was doing.

After the results were published, I was told that I was surprised to hear the news, and I was glad to hear it.

It's all over the past, and I've talked too much about my feelings at that time. To sum up, I think there are only two words "lucky" and "happy". Once, while I was making up, Kou Hongping went to the dressing room to see me. We had a very good talk. Isabella also said that if she had a chance to play a drama, she would like to play a role similar to Huang Rong!

I'd like to tell you, Isabella, that I'd like to do a good play with you, too!

翁美玲执笔撰文讲述『黄蓉的感受』

(翡翠周刊12期,82年12月24日报道)
        图一:翁美玲执笔写本文的时候,知道镜头对着她,马上转过头来展示可爱的笑容!
 
        图二:翁美玲写『黄蓉的感受』的手稿
 
        好不容易才执笔,但落笔之际,却又不知应该从何说起。近日自从被选演黄蓉后,很多人突然对我关注起来,使我着实有点受宠若惊。
        我个人是一个顺应自然,安于天命的宿命论信奉者,我当选黄蓉可能就是命运的安排,事前自己一点也没想过,这些我已跟记者们说过很多遍了。总之一句话,公司安排我去试镜我便去。
        其实我是不是一个真正值得大家注视的人呢?我自己也不知道。我只知道尽自己的能力做好,无论成绩怎样,只求对得住自己便是。
        少看武侠小说
        我从来没想过自己会扮演黄蓉,我在英国住了十二年,很少看武侠小说,就是大名鼎鼎的金庸原著「射雕英雄传」也从未看过。
        重回到阔别十二载的香港,参加香港小姐竞选,我从中获益良多。因此,我认为参选港姐,争取宝座并不是唯一目的,重要的是从中吸取知识,增广见闻。
        虽然当选黄蓉算不上一件怎么了不起的事,但最少给我一个机会尝试一些新角色,从而吸取更多经验。我并不是要求自己一步登天,只希望循序渐进,慢慢进入角色。
        我毕竟是新人,演戏经验尚浅,所以希望借着导演循循善诱的悉心指导,能够帮助我把这个角色演好。话虽如此,我不能完全依赖别人,自己也应该尽力。
        揣摩色角特性
        到今日为止,我已经看完了四集「射雕」之中的三集,现在已经进军第四集。虽然我不敢说自己已经完全可以掌握黄蓉的性格,但基本上我已经揣摩到角色的特性。
        我曾将对自己这样说:「翁美玲,你决不能站在镜头前面木无表情,你必须有所表现。」真的,我不可以辜负观众对黄蓉的期望,更加不可以白费了所有参与「射雕」工作人员的心血。
        虽然我对自己的要求颇高,但我并不因此而加重自己的心理压力,我希望一切都可以来得自然些。「十三妹」是我有生以来所演的第一套剧集,我觉得在演出方面都很自然,不知人家看了会否有同样的感觉?虽然我在「十三妹」的戏份不如在「射雕」的多,不过,我深信吸收了「十三妹」的演出经验,多少对我在「射雕」的演出会有帮助。
诚然,我是一个新人,一次的演出经验可能不足以巩固我的演戏基础,我亦不奢望一步登上青云路。可是,我断不会因此而模仿他人,翁美玲就是翁美玲,应该有自己的路向。人家演得出色与我无关,因为我不能跟从别人的路线走,我必须脱离人家的范畴,塑造另一个黄蓉形象,这样才对得起观众对我的爱戴。
        不可糟蹋原著
        想起那群热情的观众,就更加不容松懈,他们对我一个新艺员这样爱戴,真叫我难以相信。无论我走到大街小巷,都有一批一群的热情影迷叫我签名,拉我跟他们一起拍照。对于这些,我初时感到很不自然,但如今习惯了。令我最开心的,就是当他们大叫:「黄蓉呀!黄蓉来了。」我听了不禁甜在心头。
        不但观众这样叫我,甚至录影「妇女新姿」的工作人员,他们每见到我也高呼:「YELLOW翁!」我想,我可能要将我的英文名字巴巴拉翁摒弃,改为YELLOW翁会更为人接受!
        纵然「射雕」到今日为止还未有我的戏份,但在日常生活里,我已经不知不觉间变为黄蓉的化身。我曾经听过几位我不大熟识的朋友私私窃语地说:「你们有没有觉得翁美玲的举止神韵比以前俏得多呀?」
        听到这句话,我暗地里笑。当然,我应该将自己融化于俏黄蓉身上,难道他们想见到一个「古气袋黄蓉」吗?这个黄蓉可不容易做呀!就是「娇俏」也是要培养出来,我扪心自问不及黄蓉的「俏」,但我希望可以将黄蓉演得更俏。我要将我自己(黄蓉)活现于荧光幕上,使观众留下深刻印像,不可糟蹋金庸先生的名著!
        有信心演好戏
        对于我来说,要演一个这样已深入人心的小说人物,并不容易。我对武术一无所知,可说是花拳绣腿,叫我舞刀弄枪、跳跳蹦蹦,真惊力有不逮,不过经过武术指导的悉心指导,我想定必可以应付裕如。
        要是我早知自己要「置身武林」的话,可能我会上山拜师学法。可是当日我是第一个试镜的,上午试镜之后,下午就要拍「十三妹」,匆忙之际,根本看不到其他对手的演出,亦不知道自己做得怎样。
        直至结果公布后,方有人告诉我,我听到这个消息也感到意外,意外之余当然喜上眉梢啦。
        一切已成过去,当时的感受也说得太多。总括而言,我觉得只有「幸运」和「喜悦」四个字。一次,我在化妆之际,寇鸿萍走到化妆间探我,我们谈得十分投契。依莎贝拉还表示,若果她有机会演话剧,希望能够演到类似黄蓉的角色呢!
        在此我告诉你依莎贝拉,我也很希望跟你一起合演一出好戏呀!
