The Chinese fan club of Barbara was so kind to send me the whole series of The legend of the condor heroes and The Fearless duo, both with subtitles. Till now I only reached the third DVD of The legend (there are nine!). When I saw Barbara appear on screen, the first thing I thought was 'You're not acting, you are just having fun!'. I think Barbara played a role which was very close to her character. I recognize many expression and movements in the scenes in which she is just being herself.

Barbara的中文影迷会送给了我一套"射雕英雄传"和"天师执位",都是带字幕的。我刚刚开始看射雕英雄传的第三碟(共有9碟!)。我看到Barbara出现在荧幕上时,我首先的想法是,"你不是在演戏,你是在玩吧。"我想Barbara演了一个和她的性格非常接近的角色。我能够认出一些表情和动作,是她如实地本色出演。

I have heard from Felix Wong's interview and Miu's interview that Barbara Yung is like Wong Yung. And now to hear the confirmation from you again, I'm sure a lot of fans love to hear that she is exactly like what they imagined her to be.

I think her gestures and the way she carried herself is what makes her Wong Yung most lovable.

I hope you will watch her other series too. The one that she may not be playing a character that is similar to herself is probably 'The Foundation'. I haven't seen a version that has english translation though. Hope there will be one. But it's very tragic.

I realy do hope TVB will re-release Barbara other series in DVD format. So, far in Malaysia the only series of Barbara's are Legend of The Condor Heroes (Collector's Edition) and Fearles Duo which are on sale. Manage to get this two.

Though is a long wait after 27-28 years since it's release, it worth it. PRICLESS. ;-)

What a great question asked! Rob, so you do think her expressions were HERS and not acting!!! The reason why she won the heart of everyone is because of her "being herself". She is indeed a true STAR!

Does anyone know where I can get a copy of 'United We Stand' or 'The Rough Ride'? I'm having a hard time find those.

ya that's why I liked her so much as an actress because she was good at it and her acting was very natural and realistic to watch and she's very cute and expressive. My mom always said I looked alot like her with the big eyes and facial expressions, but she didn't like to mention it too much because she thought it was bad luck that Barbara died young ( hahaha typical chinese thinking!).

I liked condor heroes, but by today's standards alot of the special effects and storyline will seem really cheesy, but I love her character as Wong Yung. Don't bother with Fearless Duo cause that one pretty corny too.

Rob if you can get the english subtitles, you should watch her in her first series (sup sam wiu) which she was really cute as the princess in. And one of the first series i saw her in was the Foundations and I still like it to this day, even tho its sad.

Hi Rob,

I have been wondering how Barbara's mum respond/react upon learning/hearing about your website and your personal sharing about her.

I begin to think that Barbara chose to become an actress because she knows she will become famous so that you know how she was doing well through newspapers and concerts. :P

May i ask if you will share more of the stories after Barbara's mother will not be around one day?

I don't think Barbara's mother knows about this website. I know that the people who take care of her do know about this site. They told me that they hadn't told her about it because they don't want to upset her with more memories about Barbara.

At the moment I am working on a book which tells the complete story about my life with Barbara. Unfortunately for those who are waiting for it, I find my life much to enjoyable for writing (I have nicer things to do). So it will take a long while before the book is finished.

Hi Rob,

I don't think that Barbara's mum is not aware about your website or watch TV or read news about Barbara. I'm certain that she does know about it. I mean LOCH and Barbara is widely talked about.
