It was a dismal showing for MediaCorp’s so-called Seven Princesses when only Rui En, Jesseca Liu and Felicia Chin made it to the coveted list. While hot faves like Jeanette Aw and Joanne Peh licked their wounds, Yvonne Lim and Edmund Tay were all smiles and tears (of joy) as they took home the Best Actress and Best Actor awards for the first time.

Reporting Team:
Angie Wong, Lam Yenfong, Kwok Karpeng, Dion Tang, Juliana June Rasul, Tan Yuxiang and Bernice Hoh

Where were the fans? Did the media’s tag of them cause their downfall?

This must be the question on the minds of four of the Seven Princesses. The loudest gasps were heard in the Top 10 Most Popular Female Artistes awards category where only three of the Seven Princesses (a term given by the local media to the seven up-and-coming nubile actresses in MediaCorp) made it to the popularity roll call.

The year’s biggest and grandest event got an unofficial kick-off today when some of the hottest artistes in MediaCorp gathered to receive their Telepoll numbers for the Star Search Most Popular Artiste category. Who’s in, who’s not? Why’s Patricia holding a grudge against the beguiling Seven Princesses? What secret did Chen Hanwei tell us? Was Christopher Lee ostracised in China?

No surprises among the 20 nominees for the Top 10 Most Popular Female Artistes this year; the Seven Princesses are there, Best Actresses Ivy Lee, Huang Biren are included, widely-adored variety show hosts Kym Ng and Quan Yifeng are never left out and everyone’s favourite aunties Xiang Yun and Hong Huifang prove one doesn’t need to be young, willowy and gorgeous to stay put in our minds.

Which leaves comedic nominee Patricia Mok, nominated for ten times but never winning once (!!), a little left out.

“My chances of bringing home the trophy would be quite optimistic even if weren’t for the Seven Princesses! See, they are nominated, then there’s Biren and Ivy, and Xiang Yun is still around! Xiang Yun, why aren’t you at the ‘altar’ yet??” Patricia laments in mock tragedy.

The Seven Princesses refer to the seven artistes in MediaCorp most likely to become the Ah Jies of tomorrow and the titles are humbly owned by Jeanette Aw, Joanne Peh, Jesseca Liu, Dawn Yeoh, Felicia Chin, Rui En and Fiona Xie. The ‘altar’ (Shen Tai) on the other hand refers to All-Time Favourites like Chew Chor Meng, Li Nanxing, Xie Shaoguang, Zoe Tay, Fann Wong and Chen Liping who have received the Most Popular Artiste Award for 10 years.

【破茧而出】动作场面浩大……爆破、追车、肉搏战、枪战、跳车、飞车,演员卖命演出,震撼你的视觉感官!有什么镜头最不能错过?!我们来告诉你!

邓永君 报道/录像/剪辑/摄影(部分)

【破茧而出】是【刑警2人组】监制杨锡彬最新作品。看【刑警2人组】的经典镜头。

这部电视剧来势汹汹,有不少突破,单是动作场面就让人期待不已。清粥小菜吃多了,偶尔来个麻辣拼盘也不错。

根据杨监制的说法是,这部戏比之前的【刑】有更多动作场面,更有看头。杨监制还强调,本剧不是一味暴力、血腥、色情,观众可多留意剧情发展以及演员演技。

窄巷 + 灯管+ 打斗
综合以上三项,你联想到什么?

这是一场激烈的贴身打斗场面,这场戏花了两个晚上拍摄,陈汉玮(饰演欧阳力)、芮恩(饰演安晓茜)和动作演员王艳宾(饰演快刀手)在一条不到两尺宽的窄巷追逐、搏斗。

黄来发特别强调这一场戏是本地首创。

他说:“我们没有参考电影还是其他电视剧。这是我们自己的‘创作’。灵感来自于,我们发现拍夜戏的时候,摄影师都会在墙上装一两条灯管,增加光线。我们想,如果把巷子装满灯管,打斗应该会很好看……我们是故意找这么窄的巷子来拍的。”

为了拍摄这场戏,总共消耗了20多支灯管;黄来发把这场戏称为“流星雨”,芮恩接受访问的时候也说,拍出来的效果非常漂亮。

芮恩说:“噼里啪啦的火花,我觉得拍出来的效果很漂亮。”

陈汉玮则认为这是里面最惊险的一场戏,除了要应付迎面飞来的玻璃,还担心被打碎之后的灯管会“走火”。

这场戏到底有多漂亮、多惊险?记得要看电视播出!

芮恩:新一代打女
芮恩是演员当中,动作最多的,比剧中的男演员还多一点。戏里不少90度抬腿、踢腿、攀高爬低、追逐打斗的场面,都由她亲身上阵。

据说一场在船上的戏,她必须从高约2层楼的船舱,纵身一跳,抱着桅杆往下滑……这样的动作,对女生来说简直是超级无敌难,她竟然毫不犹豫就做了。

芮恩说:“当初脑子里只是想到‘bia’,拚了!什么都不想,拚了再说!”新一代打女,非她莫属。

One thing rings true in both the entertainment scene and the mafia: a strong memorable name will get you far. For the stars of the new cop & thief drama Metamorphosis like Rui En, Yvonne Lim, Terence Cao and Thomas Ong, what alias would they adopt should they one day decide to switch industries?

Rattlesnake… Red-haired Pig… Blood Rose… such fanciful aliases can only appear in either the crime section of our Chinese dailies or the colourful imagination of the writers and producers in MediaCorp Chinese Drama unit. Every gangster who hopes to make it big in the underworld for sure needs a stylo-mylo alias that will leave the enemies shaking in their pants; like, how big can you get if you go with Ah Boy or Xiao Gui? For the stars of new cop & thief drama Metamorphosis, which debuts tomorrow at 9pm, we ask them what nick they would give themselves should they one day decided to abandon the glitzy lights of showbiz for the dark world of organized crime…

Rui En – Rayzer

“I read a lot of comics in my childhood and I’m an X-Men fan; I used to collect the comics, so I think it’ll be something along those lines, like… Razor… spelt in a funky way, or Ice… something simple lah, not too try-hard-to-be-evil.”

And would ‘Razer’ like herself to be immortalized, almost like the new reality programme Who Wants To Be A Superhero?

“Hahaha! I saw the trailers! It’s quite funny… it’s very cute. They have capes and wear tights… Ei, I wouldn’t mind having a Superhero persona y’know… You know who I find very cool? Aeon Flux. I find the image very, very cool. If I ever get a role like that, I’ll train for six months, I promise!”

For the girl who started out in modeling running in a Singtel ad and whom you will soon see chasing down baddies as a crime-busting cop in new drama Metamorphosis, Rui En confesses to be a serious slacker during the 2.4km runs in school.

The wheels of déjà vu are turning. Seven years ago, freshly out of junior college, Rui En received her first modeling job for a Singtel ad where you might remember her sprinting to top up her Singtel phone card so she could pick up a call from a cute hottie.

Now, numerous dramas later, Rui En is again running, this time for her new drama Metamorphosis where she hunts down law-breaking criminals. On the contrary to her sporty and gungho image, the 26-year-old singer-actress confessed to be a terrible student during the Physical Education (P.E.) classes.

“I always ‘siam’ (avoid) the 2.4 (km run)! Always!! I hate running! If I run, I have to force myself, so back in my school days, my friends and I were infamous for finding excuses not to do the 2.4 haha! We were really slackers when it came to P.E. until it got to a point where the P.E. teacher got so annoyed with us that we got a ticking-off in front of the whole school,” she chuckled.

Teacher would be sniggering in secret now as Rui En paid the price for her school day truancies during the filming of Metamorphosis: she pulled a muscle and went limping for about close to two weeks!

“And before filming started, I told the executive producer (EP) that I needed training because I had never done anything like this before, so the EP arranged two sessions with the martial arts choreographer for me. After the first three-hour session, I was aching so badly that I seriously couldn’t get up the next day! I had problems walking, but I was very lucky that I had those two lessons, so after that, I would ache a little bit but not as bad as the first time,” she winced in recollection.

The experience wasn’t all that bad; Rui En has now discovered something new about herself: she loves to fight! As she complains about how there wasn’t enough fight scenes in Metamorphosis to whet her appetite, she is also making plans to stay active to take up muay thai lessons.

“After filming Metamorphosis, I realized I like punching and kicking so much! It’s very stress-relieving! Maybe I’m just a violent person but I really like the fight scenes. I’m trying to keep active so that if I do take up the sport, I won’t, like, die of exhaustion.”

Metamorphosis begins tomorrow Sept 18 at 9pm on Channel 8! The drama also stars Chen Hanwei, Terence Cao, Thomas Ong, Yvonne Lim, Brandon Wong, Cavin Soh, Ng Hui, Julian Hee, Chen Guohua, Bryan Wang, Ix Shen and Chew Sin Huey.

演出新剧【破茧而出】,林湘萍生不如死;芮恩搏命演出;陈汉玮看透曹国辉、芮恩真面目;沈倾掞开枪开上瘾;曹国辉被炸弹吓破胆……想知道更多?看进来!

【破茧而出】5分钟预告片将在9月15日(星期六),晚上8时55分,在8频道播出,想要抢先观赏精彩镜头?不要错过!

新剧【破茧而出】,堪称年度经典动作片。

昨天(9月11日)下午的记者会,我们访问了剧中要角:芮恩、林湘萍、陈汉玮、曹国辉以及沈倾掞;发现他们当中有人“生不如死”,有人“要生要死”,有人“把别人吓得要死”、有人“打死都不要……”

配合【破】剧的“神秘感”和“悬疑性”,我们先不告诉到底是谁说了什么?先发挥你的想象力,再点击看答案(录像)!

芮恩 最痛恨“脚滑”
记者会上,芮恩穿了一件紫色的裙子搭配黑色紧身裤袜,女人味十足;和她在剧中沉默干练的形象有天渊之别。

芮恩在剧里表现出色,她说自己的角色,只有一个字形容:冰!
除了配合角色把头发剪短、不苟言笑、拼命装酷之外,对于自己不堪的童年遭遇还常常表现出压抑挣扎;就算和影帝陈汉玮、老戏骨刘谦益对戏,也没有被比下去,监制杨锡彬对她的表现深表赞赏。

多场打斗戏,很多高难度的动作,芮恩都亲力亲为。打架、追赶、从高处跃下……她都能接受;唯一让她“快疯了”的竟然是在滑溜溜的地面上追赶跑。
为什么?因为她是个—“脚滑”的人!嘿嘿。详情?看录像。
