- What has been your most satisfying undertaking to date?I was fortunate enough to have been coached individually by the Beijing Opera master Hu Zhifeng on the role of Du Shiniang. Although I still have much room for improvement and it was an arduous process, the experience was greatly rewarding.
- What is your quest in art?I would like to promote Cantonese Opera internationally and to preserve this art form, taking it to new heights.
- Please share an interesting anecdote or an unforgettable moment on stage.Years ago, during one of my first bamboo theatre performances, I was too preoccupied with makeup and costumes, I forgot to hydrate despite the scorching weather. I grew increasingly unwell and sweated profusely. All of a sudden, everything went dark. I was led off stage, supported by my fellow actresses. It turned out that I had a heat stroke.
