WATCH IT!

HOW ironic it is that the title of this drama serial should be No Problem.

There were problems indeed, with misfortune befalling the actresses, one by one.

No Problem also sees the appearance of newcomer Lu Rui-en (the Singtel ad girl) as the girlfriend of Chen Hanwei’s Jinfu, the youngest son in the rice dumpling clan.

Her acting may be a bit raw, but at least she has no problems with her Mandarin. No Problem is shown over Channel 8 every weekday at 9pm.

卢瑞恩 起跑冲刺 lu ruien

无心插柳的一支新电信广告让她闯进了娱乐圈。那个在广告片中一股劲儿往提款机奔跑的长发女生,不只让观众留下印象,更被海峡唱片的经纪公司艺人网络相中,成为旗下力捧新人。

拍完第8波道的《考试家族》,她紧接在第5波道的最新爱情喜剧“Chemistry”里挑大梁。下半年,即将推出个人专辑,向台湾歌坛全速进攻!

舞台比办公室有趣

21岁的卢瑞恩是南洋理工大学商学院的二年级学生,虽然目前是学校假期,但周日必须到一家电脑公司实习,所以专访特别迁就在周末进行。提早体验上班族生活让她大皱眉头。“这次实习确定了我的选择(进入娱乐圈)是对的,我受不了朝九晚五的工作,闷到快发疯,哈!在办公室有种被困的感觉,所以一上班就在countdown下班时间。”

迫不急待下班还有另一原因,晚上经纪公司为她安排的舞蹈课程,是她每天最期待的一大娱乐。“我非常喜欢跳舞,一跳舞就觉得开心又轻松,所以练舞对我来说是一种享受。”

要求念小学时,小瑞恩被芭蕾舞优美的舞姿吸引,要求妈妈让她学了4年的芭蕾舞。中学时代参加合唱团,又让她发现了对歌唱的兴趣。别以为瑞恩即将发行的新专辑里,会文静、规矩地唱着抒情歌曲,她想把更接近自己开朗个性的动感一面,真实地反映在作品中。“新专辑还在收歌当中,多数是比较有节奏的R&B或电子音乐,因为我觉得唱快歌比较舒服自在。”

一只困不住地飞鸟,正如她17岁往澳洲旅行时,随性于腰际刺上的纹身图案。

谈情比说华语容易

身高169公分的瑞恩属于清新耐看型,第一次演戏难得没有新人的生涩,尤其与陈汉玮演起情侣来自然温馨。“要和陌生人演情侣,起初当然尴尬,还好陈汉玮很会带新人入戏,又让人感觉舒服,所以我蛮快就适应了。”

瑞恩最担心自己的华语不达标准,使演出效果大打折扣。初时以为她求好心切,虽说在家中与父母以英语交谈,但在电视上却听不出半点洋腔洋调。不过,当她不时说溜嘴,出现把“独生女”说成“单生女”之类的用词不当时,摄影棚也充满了她自嘲的爽朗笑声。

“长这么大第一次被逼天天说华语,我朋友看了预告片都打电话来骂我,为什么华语那么烂还拍第8波道的戏,哈!不过,他们一定会看这部戏,因为觉得我的华语说得很有趣,看完了还可以拿来取笑我,哈!”

TAKE 5

THIS former SingTel girl has run into good luck these days.

You’ll remember Lu Rui En as the gutsy babe in the ad who raced up a sweat just to top up her handphone’s stored value card.

Now, she could even be the next Stefanie Sun or Tanya Chua.

The 21-year-old NTU business student has signed on with Hype Records after crooning Mariah Carey and Faye Wong tunes at her audition. She is recording her debut Mandarin album – even though she doesn’t really listen to Chinese music.

And all this while finishing up her attachment at an IT firm.

Meanwhile, the showbiz ingenue makes her small screen debut in the new Channel 8 drama No Problem, which starts tomorrow. Rui En plays Chen Hanwei’s longtime sweetie-pie girlfriend – until Ivy Lee comes between them.

Do you go ga-ga over guys made from the F4 mould?

No! I’m not so much into the long-hair, idol look. For me, it’s more of character and sei (Hokkien for style). But now I really like Hayden Christensen. Which girl wouldn’t?
You take pride in your proficiency in…

Doing imitations. I’m pretty good at a Malay rocker accent.

How do you feel about the whole slimming pill scandal that dogged your co-stars Chen Liping or Andrea De Cruz?

Actually I was told to lose weight, because I have baby fat on my cheeks. But after the Slim 10 thing I was pretty disturbed. No way would I take pills. It’s all about exercise and a healthy diet.
Women don’t get football: True or false?

False. Then again, I think they get it only because of the cute guys. Other than that there’s no other attraction for us.

What’s the wildest thing you’ve ever done?

While I was in secondary school, my parents were very strict and I had an early curfew. I would sneak out of the house by the back gate in the middle of the night. Once, when I came back early in the morning, my mum was waiting for me! That was the scariest thing in the world.
I was grounded for half a year and couldn’t even use the phone!
