It’s always nice to see familiar faces return to television.

Local artist He Yongfang told Shin Min Daily News in a recent interview that she is coming back to acting, but there’s a catch. As she dedicates more time to charity, she is particularly careful about the roles she gets.

For a, she won’t take negative roles.

She told the Chinese daily that she wants to be a positive role model for her son and daughter – this is also why she is actively involved in charity work.

“There was a role that required me to play a rich woman taking care of her little boy. I rejected it,” Yongfang explained.

And despite being 53, the actress-host doesn’t look it. She was once asked to play the mother of a middle-aged man and instead of a text response she sent a recent photo of herself to the casting director who changed her mind by the following.

More recently, in the upcoming local drama Strike Gold, she plays the wife of a company president, who is also a loving mother to her children. This is his first role in three years.

She explained, “I actually don’t mind playing ‘mom’ roles, like Huang Biren in Your World in Mine. I would really like to play a role where I can portray a mother’s selfless devotion to their children.”

[[nid:464704]]

Yongfang also recently hosted a charity event with Marcus Chin and she wore many hats as she was involved in planning, hosting and performing.

Fellow veteran actress Biren even teased her for being a multi-talented entertainer.

“Biren laughed at me and said it was really worth having me. I could plan, sing and host, so I’ll save a lot of money for the organizer,” she said. .

Unlike other actors and actresses of his generation, however, it seems that Yongfang’s children aren’t into showbiz or second-generation stars. There was an invitation for parent and child to appear on a television show, but her two children did not want to appear on television.

Her daughter is 17 while her son is 14. The latter, according to Shin Min, looks a bit like Taiwanese actor Eddie Peng.

She said, “Both kids are very introverted and have no interest in the entertainment industry.”

The upcoming season sees Joe move to England, and in the video’s voiceover, Joe (Penn Badgley) confirms he’s “gone through a bit of refinement” with his move across the pond.

“I’m not the lovable manager of a bookstore in New York, or the salesman in Los Angeles, or the doting husband in the suburbs,” says Joe, adding, “I focus on academia and teaching. while keeping my typical extracurricular activities strictly professional.

Joe also claims that the days of unrequited love and desire are over. Do we believe it? No.

You New Cast and Characters for Season 4:

Tilly Keeper (Lady Phoebe)
As sweet and kind as she is rich, famous and chaotic, every Phoebe bikini wax has been documented by the tabloids since she was 15. An aristocratic socialite with a passionate fan base, Phoebe’s true colors show when she’s alone with her friends. She is a steadfast cheerleader, especially for American entrepreneur boyfriend Adam. She’s also a wildcard: when misfortune strikes, will she rise to the occasion or will she smash?

Amy Leigh HickmanNadia
A major in literature with a love of genre storytelling and an aspiration to be a serious author, Nadia’s outspokenness and intensity are the perfect cover for the insecurities carried by a young woman who has never been accepted by his peer group. She made big mistakes; now they threaten to destroy his life. She will need help, even if it comes from the wrong people.

Ed Speleers (Rhys)
Dry and irreverent, Rhys is an author whose memoirs have earned him praise and pressure to launch a political career. Born into poverty, Rhys lived a traumatic life before earning money, going to Oxford and making good friends. Now he moves easily in any social circle, while seeing through those around him. He doesn’t have much time to party, although he likes to keep in touch with his eccentric circle of friends. After all, they were there for him in his troubled youth.

Lukas GageAdam
Adam is an American expat, the youngest son of a wealthy East Coast tycoon. He is famous for failing dramatically to live up to the standards of his venerable and successful family. Entrepreneur and gamer, Adam is a warm and funny party host and quick friend. But underneath, Adam hides a treasure trove of secrets and conceals heavy self-medication issues.

Charlotte RitchieKate
She is intelligent, independent, suspicious, lacks nothing. She is fiercely loyal to her friends, a brick wall to everyone else. The daughter of a chaotic, bohemian single mother, Kate has worked hard to create the life she leads now. She’s an art gallery manager whose job is to manage tempestuous artists.

Recurring characters from season 4:

Niccy LinSophie
Sophie is an entrepreneur in the body of a pampered jet-setter. Sure, it looks like she’s hanging out in a bikini on social media, but every aspect of her feed represents shrewdly negotiated high-end endorsement deals. Beneath her whimsical exterior, Sophie is a watchful protector of her introverted artist brother, Simon.

Aidan Cheng (Simon)
Simon is impossible to impress and hates gossip and strangers. The Oxford-educated son of a Chinese tech tycoon, Simon proved the world wrong when, despite his wealth and sheltered life, he emerged as a laudable artist.

Stephen HaganMalcolm
Born into privilege, Malcolm is a professor of literature who enjoys all the social benefits of labor without working very hard. A drug-loving bon vivant, Malcolm’s kindness can turn into intimidation if you resist. He is dating Kate, bright and successful, which speaks to his own intelligence and maturity. But he also sees a few more on the side, negating those bonus points.

Ben WigginsRoald
Roald comes from an old aristocratic family whose names appear on many important buildings in Europe. He’s attractive, handsome, and has perfect manners, but there’s a certain cold calculation to Roald, not to mention rumors of a hidden dark side.

Eve Austin (Gemma)
A member of a special circle of friends who met in Oxford, Gemma never thought about life beyond the next VIP event, fashion show or date. She’s a fun friend to party with, but her privileged island life has left her incredibly deaf and surprisingly lacking in empathy for those who have less.

Ozioma Whenu (Blessing)
A Nigerian princess with multiple postgraduate degrees, Blessing is an avid cryptocurrency investor. Funny, fun-loving, shameless with his college friends, his reckless risk-taking in life and business has paid off time and time again. What is his secret? She thinks we all live in a simulation, so only fools would stop themselves from doing what they want.

Dario CoatesConnie
Connie attended Oxford with Kate and Phoebe’s group of friends. He is a bourgeois, chic, a sportsman who has become soft. Noisy, pot in mouth, likes bets, horses, drinking and cocaine. It’s safe to assume that Connie has never had to deal with a negative consequence in her life.

Sean Pertwee (vic)
Adam’s proud and impeccably dressed driver/dealer/personal security, Vic is loyal and keeps many of the secrets of Adam and his friends. He’s not afraid to get his hands dirty to protect them – work always comes first. Foreigners are treated with polite but utter suspicion.

Brad Alexander (Edward)
Edward’s father, a college student, owns a powerful medium. Edward is popular and used to being the smartest student in the class. He has a fierce rivalry with his classmate Nadia.

Alison Pargeter (Dawn)
Dawn isn’t someone you’ll notice in a crowd, and that helps her in her job as a paparazzi photographer. But if you’re someone who’s determined to avoid being filmed, well, Dawn might be a problem.

Adam James (Elliot)
World-weary, calm, down to earth, allergic to drama, Elliot has lived in California for decades, but his job requires him to travel across Europe. Elliot’s employer is powerful, and Elliot is always up to it, no matter how difficult the task.

KUALA LUMPUR, Sept. 23 — Fans of Chinese singer and member of South Korean boyband GOT7, Jackson Wang, fear he may be the next canceled act.

A video allegedly made by his fans showing them pleading with their idol not to destroy his reputation has gone viral on social media, 8 days reported.

While Wang has yet to respond to the clip, a social media user claiming to work for a broadcasting station added fuel to the fire by alleging their station received a directive to remove all of Wang’s content.

The person’s claim was debunked, however, when checks by other social media users on Chinese search engines revealed that content featuring Wang was still available.

That hasn’t slowed the rumors, as a brand previously thought to take Wang on as an ambassador ended up choosing another celebrity instead, with word being that the celebrity was shunned due to negative publicity.

Fans have reason to be concerned for their idol as Wang’s name has been linked to Chinese actor Li Yifeng for soliciting sex workers.

Chinese influencer Hu Wan posted on her social media that 17 male celebrities sought the services of sex workers after Li’s arrest, Jayne Star reported.

Although she didn’t name them directly, she said their surnames started with L, W, C, H, and Z, leaving many to focus on Wang.

The network suits at Hulu (i.e. the fictionalized version of the show) get a bit muddled when an indie screenwriter, Hannah (“Crazy Ex-Girlfriend’s Rachel Bloom”), arrives to kick off a reboot of something called “Step Right”. Up!” Instead of an original idea, why would she want to give an old “Who’s the Boss?”-esque sitcom a more artsy makeover?

She has her reasons and finds that the cast might not be surprisingly eager to reprise their roles, mostly for those sweet paychecks. Yet she’s horrified when the packaging features original producer Gordon (Paul Reiser, flight scenes right and left), the proverbial bull in a china shop with very different ideas about how her baby should be. treaty.

Among the cast, there’s a romance between Reed (Keegan-Michael Key, in an enhancement to his latest showbiz satire, movie-on-a-movie “The Bubble”) and Bree (Judy Greer); a sordid past for stand-up-turned-actor Clay (Johnny Knoxville); and a host of issues regarding now adult child star Zach (Calum Worthy), starting with the fact that his mother still insists on hanging around the set.
Levitan benefits greatly from the clash of old and new, with the dinosaurs Gordon hires for the writing staff constantly saying non-HR friendly things to Hannah’s younger, more diverse additions. Additionally, the network insisted on casting a reality TV star (“The Sex Lives of College Girls” “Alyah Chanelle Scott) whose social media following is far better developed than her acting skills, which explains why she continues to read the stage instructions as if they were dialogue.

Some of the jokes are a bit too obvious, like the one from the network’s young and serious vice president of comedy (Krista Marie Yu) saying, “I’m new to comedy.” Others can be almost painfully inside baseball, unless of course you can relate to sitcom heavyweight Chuck Lorre for producing so many shows that he’s crowding out other creators.

Again, that’s part of the leeway that streaming allows, and other elements, like intergenerational conflict, often turn out to be funny, and sometimes a bit sweet. (Yes, the “Seinfeld” “No cuddling, no learning” rule is sometimes violated, but rarely for long.)

Levitan actually created a series about a sitcom 20 years ago for Fox (“Greg the Bunny”, we barely knew you), so give him credit for giving the underlying concept another try in what should be a more hospitable time and place.

The first season of “Reboot” is eight quick episodes, and it seems to leave plenty of room for more hurt feelings and hijinks to come. And if it works, who knows? In 25 or 30 years, there might even be a “Reboot”.

“Reboot” premieres September 20 on Hulu.

Stevie Nicks is one of the biggest names in rock ‘n’ roll, infusing his lyrics with his love for all things wizarding. This love of witchcraft also extends to her daily life. The singer is passionate about nature and animals. When it came time to name one of her beloved dogs, Nicks relied on her more dramatic instincts to choose the perfect name.

Is Stevie Nicks a witch?

While Nicks has repeatedly said she’s not a witch, the world continues to believe the Fleetwood Mac star practices witchcraft. Ever since she rose to fame in 1975, people have insisted on classifying Nicks as a witch.

KUALA LUMPUR, Sept. 15 — Hosting the inaugural 2022 Chinese Film Festival in Malaysia is part of Malaysia’s and China’s continued efforts to strengthen bilateral relations through the film industry.

Deputy Communications and Multimedia Minister Datuk Zahidi Zainul Abidin said the four-day festival, which begins today, not only serves as a platform for filmmakers and producers from both countries to share ideas, but also to identify partnership opportunities to develop the film industry.

“2022 marks the 48th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Malaysia and the People’s Republic of China. Relations between Malaysia and China are important, not only for economic reasons, but also for cultural initiatives, creativity and innovation in mutual concern and cross-cultural communication.

“I believe this film festival will become an important platform for both sides to enhance the people-to-people understanding and friendship between Malaysia and China,” he said during his speech at the launch. of the festival here today.

He said the ministry will remain committed to supporting local creative talents and ensuring they can break into the international film market.

“Tonight, the opening ceremony will see the screening of the film On your marks, directed by Malaysian-Chinese filmmaker Chiu Keng Guan. The film earned RM8.7 million on its opening day and then collected over RM24 million over the next two days and became the number one film in China on its opening day.

“I am very proud that a film produced in Malaysia has received such attention from China. The Malaysian Ministry of Communications and Multimedia, through the National Film Development Corporation, facilitates the Malaysian film industry and invites all foreign production houses, especially those from the People’s Republic of China, to shoot in Malaysia said Zahidi.

A total of 20 films, 18 Chinese and two Malaysian, will be screened at the DADI Cinema Pavilion Kuala Lumpur throughout the festival, organized by the Kuala Lumpur China Cultural Centre. — Bernama

More than three decades later, they have returned from the fringes of the entertainment industry and reunited.

Veteran actress Zheng Wanling uploaded a group photo to her Instagram yesterday (September 14), showing the reunion she had with her On The Fringe co-stars Chen Bifeng and Yang Libing.

https://www.instagram.com/p/Cie02M4uXu1/

Wanling, 56, wrote: “A good meeting, after a while.”

In the photo, Wanling poses next to Bifeng who is on her right, while Libing, 57, stands behind the two former actresses. A friend stands to their far right.

Besides the iconic 1988 drama On the Fringe, Bifeng and Libing also starred in the popular 1986 series Happy Trio.

Last month, Wanling bumped into Libing while shopping.

Sharing her encounter on Instagram, Wanling took a photo with her and said Libing still looked 21.

Libing left showbiz in 2009 to focus on her hair salon, her last role being an appearance in The Perfect Cut 2 in 2009. Since then, the former actress has stayed away from the spotlight and led a life calm.

Bifeng was last seen paying tribute to veteran local actor Bai Yan at his funeral wake in August 2019, along with his goddesses, former actresses Zeng Huifen and Ye Sumei.

[[nid:592064]]

At the time, Bifeng told Lianhe Wanbao that she taught Chinese and drama classes in schools independently.

Now she is represented by Starsnest Artists but it is still unclear if she intends to return to acting.

But while Libing and Bifeng have moved away from showbiz, Wanling is relatively more active as a public figure.

Along with appearances on local shows like the 2022 Chinese New Year drama Home Again, she was also recently tapped to lead itinerary design and expeditions in South Africa for Dynasty Travel. The first expedition led by Wanling is scheduled for November this year.

Actor John Wayne is no stranger to movie sets. However, every great movie star has to start somewhere. He had his lead role in director Raoul Walsh’s film The big path. None of his fans could guess exactly how wild Wayne found the atmosphere on set. He once compared his experience on The big path to “alcoholic orgies”.

‘The Big Trail’ was a massive John Wayne epic

Actors Wayne and Ward Bond were very close friends. They worked on The big path film set in Yuma in April 1930. According to Carolyn McGivern’s John Wayne: A Giant Shadow, the production managed to hire the actor on the cheap, given that he was new to the scene. However, they spent significant amounts on other areas, including locations. Walsh filmed locations in five states, requiring the cast and crew to travel over 2,000 miles to make the film.
