Xiang Yun Celebrates 40 Years In Showbiz, Reveals That She Actually Has An “Old-Fashioned” English Name
Bryan Wong, however, has another English name for her and it's super modern.
When Xiang Yun was a girl, a fortune teller told her father that she would become an actress. Fast forward to 2021, and true enough, the star is celebrating 40 years in showbiz.
While the 57-year-old’s first lead role was in 1983’s All that Glitters is Not Gold, it was 1984’s The Awakening that propelled her to stardom. In the latest episode of bite-sized Mediacorp series # JustSwipeLah, Xiang Yun revealed that shooting the classic drama was a tough time for her and her co-star, the late Huang Wenyong, as they would “film for six to seven days without sleep”.
On the bright side, the experience brought them closer, and Xiang Yun still considers him her most memorable onscreen partner. “I’ll never forget him ‘cos we went through a lot of difficulties together, and in life, it’s very rare to have someone who’s on the same frequency as you.”
