Fans want to take back the mainland to spend their old age in peace       

Report from this newspaper (chief reporter Hu Xiao) Although Weng Meiling has been dead for 21 years, her fans have never left.  On November 12, the Weng Meiling International Film Fan Association held a grand gathering in Beijing to commemorate TVB's official decision on November 12, 24 years ago, to play Huang Rong in "The Legend of the Condor Heroes".  Tang Zhenye specially sent Weng Meiling's never-before-seen private photos for the party.  And the reporter learned from the fans yesterday that Weng Meiling's mother is living alone so far. Mainland movie fans plan to bring Weng's mother back to the mainland to spend her old age in peace.

Tang Zhenye exposed Weng Meiling's private photos        In addition to Weng Meiling's fans from all over the country, the party also invited famous film critic Zeng Zihang and Tang Zhenye's agent Tan Fei to participate.  Tan Fei told reporters yesterday that Tang Zhenye specially brought photos that he has always treasured, including Weng Meiling's autographed photos and photos of the two of them together, several of which were exposed for the first time.  Tan Fei also revealed that after Tang Zhenye gave him the photo, he twice told him not to lose it, "I can see that he cherishes some things, and he has never forgotten them.

79-year-old mother Weng is still alone         Yesterday, the reporter learned from a Weng Mi who returned from the UK that Weng Meiling's mother, Zhang Mingyi, is 79 years old this year and currently lives in Germany.  Good." Another fan, Wei Zhengyi, also saw Weng's mother in front of Weng Meiling's tomb during the Mid-Autumn Festival: "The old lady is really old, slow to move, and very melancholy."

Movie fans plan to return to the mainland for their later years         Tan Fei told reporters that mainland movie fans hoped to bring Weng Meiling's mother back to the mainland to spend her later years in peace.  The relevant person in charge of the fan club revealed to the reporter: "The old lady is a very independent person. Whether this idea can be realized in the end depends on the old lady's own wishes." During the interview, the reporter also learned that many Weng Meiling fans in Chongqing also rushed to the meeting.  Beijing participated in the commemoration on the 12th.
