Initially forced to care for Si Qi and her daughter, Wei Wei, Wen An soon develops a newfound respect for Si Qi when he witnesses how Si Qi faces her problems courageously – from losing her husband to discovering she’s pregnant with his child to learning about a tumor in her womb. She even had to deal with the posthumous knowledge of her husband’s infidelity. This knowledge deals a greater blow to her than news of his death. Emotionally drained and exhausted, Si Qi decides to leave the love she has for Zhang Yang behind, and move on.
With You 我在你左右 premieres 12 May 2010, Weekdays at 9pm, on Channel 8.
The many crying scenes in With You left her crazy, scared and sick
For the first time in her career, Rui En cried through many of her scenes in upcoming Channel 8 drama With You. If she wasn’t sobbing, chances are her character was still at least grieving.
And it took its toll.
The actress known for her frosty front revealed that filming for the show put her emotions into tailspin, creating an-almost split personality and made her sick.
After her wacky turn in the Chinese New Year drama Happy Family, Rui En will soon be seen as a mother-of-one who loses her husband (played by Chen Hanwei) to a road accident in With You.
In an interview with xinmsn, she said having to cry and maintain a sense of sorrow throughout much of the filming was exhausting and made her sick. The method thespian, who said she has never lost anyone dear to her, used shouting and wailing to get herself into character and even discussed extensively with the director how to refrain from bawling pointlessly.
“That feeling was simply too scary,” the ice queen said about reaching reel breaking point.
“I’ve never been like that. Also, after work I had to ensure I stopped being sad. It might not be very healthy,” she considered seriously.
Rui En played the gullible, good-natured Yang Xiaodong in Happy Family and has just started filming for cop drama Unriddle, in which she stars as a tough anti-hero, Hu Xiaoman.
With just about a month of rest in among the three vastly different roles, the 29-year-old reckons she’s almost schizophrenic, “Now I feel I’m going crazy! Physically I’m feeling a little tired too.”
The actress counts Academy Award-winning French diva Marion Cotillard as the person she looks up to. Although she feels she might never reach the skill level of the 34-year-old star of La Vie en Rose, Taxi and Nine, her With You co-stars might not agree.
At the press conference on Tuesday, Asian screen king Adrian Pang called her abilities “scary”, while Hanwei labeled her a “crying goddess”.
Veteran actor Chen Shucheng even named her in the company of acclaimed local actresses Huang Biren and Ivy Lee, all of whom, he said, could cry “beautifully” and reflect the demands of the scenes’ context.
With You debuts 12 May, 9pm on Channel 8.

Our 2 award-winning actors on their last drama together before Adrian leaves. Remember to catch them, the chemistry they have is amazing.
The always versatile, but sometimes underrated Brandon. Keep supporting him!
Rui En looking her best as the cool, biker chick.
Penny for your thoughts?
The ever pretty and talented May, who looks even more radiant after being a mother. Like Brandon, she’s incredibly versatile. Keep a lookout for her as she plays a housewife in this drama. It may seem like a simple role, but it’s definitely not easy.
Our veteran Chen Shucheng. He never fails to impress, and your heart will break when you see him in his role as a grieving father trying to keep his family together.
Nat and Rui En. Nat has really grown over the past few years, and this nice chap has done very well thus far. Congrats on your recent win too!
Our last farewell to the talented Adrian. His role in “With You” is a must-watch. He brings to his role perfect comedic timing, with a touch of pathos.
Videos will be up soon!
