I tend to not have many favorites since I enjoy watching and listening to the different actors/actresses and singers, but I’ll list my four favorites so far.
Jackie Chan (Singer and Actor): My first memories of Jackie Chan are of when I was a little girl. My dad would put the cassettes in the player and I remember watching a very young and handsome Jackie Chan beating all of the bad guys with his kung fu. I still remember some scenes–too bad our cassette player doesn’t work, or else I would re-watch all of his earlier movies. When the movie Little Big Soldier (Da Bing Xiao Jiang) came out, I immediately checked it out from the library, and to this day, that movie remains as one of my favorites. I didn’t realize then that Leehom Wang played as the general; it wasn’t until maybe a several months ago that I realized that such a famous singer/rapper played as the general!
Arthur Chen (Chinese name Chen Fei Yu) (Chinese actor): I first saw him in Ever Night season 1 and boy was I impressed! Ever Night was the third Chinese drama I saw, so I didn’t have a lot of experience with them. I loved the swag and vulnerability he lent to his character. Also, he is a few months older than me, so I felt that I could relate to him (even if it’s an unreal impression in my mind). It feels nice supporting an actor who’s around my age.
Jeff Chang (Taiwanese singer): I don’t know if he has starred in any dramas, but I love his music! I came across his songs by chance via the Youtube playlist, and I never regret doing so. His style of music is nostalgic and catchy and his voice is unique.
Dilraba Dilmurat (Chinese actress and model): I don’t know how she is as a person, but I do enjoy seeing her act on screen. She is very beautiful and she seems nice and approachable (but that could all be a persona for the screen–who knows?). Anyways, I first saw her in The King’s Woman.
As to how these actors/singers are as people, I don’t know and honestly, it doesn’t really concern me too much. Their work has accompanied me on different parts of my life journey, and I’m grateful that they put themselves out there. To them, they are just doing what they love; to me, each voice and face has an emotion and memories attached to them.
