Aimee Chan Wants to Be an Excellent Actress

Aimee Chan’s (陳茵媺) sweet smile has attracted many male fans, and she even won the heart of bachelor, Moses Chan (陳豪). Since Aimee became Miss Hong Kong in 2006, her acting career has been going smoothly. She has become one of the most frequently cast actresses in TVB’s dramas, and will soon become one of TVB’s leading actresses. Aimee’s acting has improved tremendously since Master of Play <心戰>. In The Last Steep Ascent <天梯>, Aimee’s tragic character, Tin Oi Tai, was a challenging role to portray.  Aimee has developed a deep love for acting, and her goal is to become a very good actress.

Thirty-one-year-old Aimee loves to smile, and she is known to have a carefree personality. As an actress, Aimee has been portraying many sad characters that challenge her acting ability. In the series, The Last Steep Ascent, Aimee’s character suffered many misfortunes: being a mistress, getting raped, becoming pregnant, and suffering a miscarriage. She became hopeless, but luckily she meets her protector, Kenny Wong (黃德斌) to help her to go through all the difficult times together.

Getting into the Mood While Driving to Work

Aimee grew up in a happy family, and has never faced any hardships in her life. Her character in The Last Steep Ascent, Tin Oi Tai, is a polar opposite. She has to put in a lot of heart and  effort to portray the character. Aimee said Tin is an unfortunate girl who goes through one tragic incident after another, and finally loses all her hope to continue to live. However, she still has a strong and tough side of her.

Welcoming different challenges, Aimee tried hard not to smile in order to immerse deeply into the character. It is normally not easy to make Aimee cry. In order to get into a sad mood, she build up her emotions while driving to work and remained very quiet throughout filming.  Aimee did a great deal of mental preparation to get the best results.

Although Aimee and her boyfriend, Moses Chan (陳豪), are in the same series, they did not have that many scenes together. When asked if she had sought Moses for advice, she said every actor has their own way of thinking and they have to depend on themselves to bring out their inner emotions. Aimee had many scenes with Kenny Wong, and sometimes she would ask him whether her interpretation of her role was good enough. Aimee’s and Kenny’s roles depended on their feelings, so they happily worked well together during filming.

In 2009, Aimee won the TVB Most Improved Actress award. This year, her performances in Master of Play and The Last Steep Ascent have potential to give her another award. However, she did not want to have a high expectation to win. Aimee said she would be happy if she wins, and the award is a great source of motivation. However, she will not give herself too much pressure.

Acting in TVB series since 2008, Aimee believes that 5 years of acting experiences are not enough to be a good actress. Her biggest wish is for viewers to remember Aimee as someone who can act. Aimee’s ultimate goal is to become an excellent actress.

Desires to Take Acting Classes in the United States

Since Aimee’s first role in Catch Me Now <原來愛上賊>, she has acted in more than 15 TV series. She is very grateful for gaining these acting opportunities. Aimee is considered one of the TVB’s beauties, but has not had many rumors or scandals throughout her career so far.  She has a healthy image and considers herself to be quite boring. Aimee likes spending time at home, and at the beginning of her career, she would spend a lot of free time studying different characters by watching movies and reading books hoping to gain some acting knowledge.

Aimee actually has a wish to take some acting classes in the United States, but could not currently take 3 months off her busy schedule to fulfill her wish. Another reason why there are not many rumors and scandals about her is because she is more of a tomboy and has a brother-like relationship with her male costars.

At the start of Aimee’s career, she cut her long hair to a refreshing short hairstyle. Many of the producers liked her short hair, as it fit the straightforward character she played in the series. Aimee does not mind the short length, as she can always wear a wig for a character requiring long hair.

Wants to play a character with mental disorder

Aimee hopes to play more challenging roles in the future. She revealed that she really wants to play someone who has a mental illness, a role with a complicated personality or even a villainess. Aimee also wishes to play an undercover cop like Tong Leung (梁朝偉) in Infernal Affairs (無間道).  She does not mind trying out any roles, as long the characters are not repeat performances.

After The Last Steep Ascent, Aimee’s next series, The Confidant <大太監> will be airing in November. Aimee portrays an innocent sweet princess who is the polar opposite from her character in The Last Steep Ascent. The collaboration with veterans, Wayne Lai (黎耀祥) and Michelle Yim (米雪), has given Aimee a chance to really enjoy their performances and learn from their experience.

      the acknowledgement of her recent acting by the audience and media, shows her hard work has translated to this improvement. don’t worry, Aimee will continue to work hard, thanks to haters, only more motivation to make them miserable as she proves to be a successful actress with more awards, popularity, and fans LOL.

      Aimee in The Confidant? She doesn’t have the ancient feel. Pre-modern was really stretching it.

      Maybe bc she died in FH3 so it’s sad? And she died (I think) in Master of play, so it’s sad (for her).
      Frankly i have no feeling beyond detest for any of her characters.

        Ah, I see.

        Nah, she was this happy-go-lucky girl in FH3, like many of her other characters. Pretty much everyone in MOP was tragic to an extent.

        Out of the newbie actresses, she is one of the better ones. I felt for all her characters and could relate to her, I love to watch her because she is not overbearing or egocentric the way your actress is.

      Have never liked her. Too sweet and sickly smile!! Worse now with Moses. Still think their relationship is not real and only for promotion. Her acting hasnt improved over the past year and confirmed in her role in The Last Steep Ascent.

      • star replied:

        I also think that their relationship is just for promotion, don’t believe a real couple will keep flaunting their love in public and generating news. We don’t see Bosco and Myolie bringing up their r/s all the time when they were together.

        Login or Register before you can reply to star
      • ehh? replied:

        Are you kidding me? Myolie was majorly boosted by the rumors she had with Bosco, TVB helped her with this also by always arranging promotions and ads with them. She got an edge over leads because she used it to her advantage. If you guys can talk about Aimee using Moses, it should also be said for Myolie.

        If anything, it was more detrimental for Aimee to be associated with Moses because Bernice fans were heaping on insulting comments right after.

        Myolie using Bosco as a stepping stone…? What have you been drinking? Just because people are talking bad about Aimee doesn’t mean Myolie needs to be dragged down as well.

      • Nicole replied:

        what garbage. Bosco was the one who was positively affected by the rumors. Before that, he had rumors of being a flirt and all that, and after he was with myolie. besides, Myolie was more popular at that time.

        re:ehh

        urgh why are u dragging Myolie into this. Myolie is not using Bosco as a stepping stone at all. Myolie can act and work super hard to get her status.

      Fully agree, as it seems mosses was the reason why TVB even bother to give her all these chances as she has been around long time bf her relationship with mosses and she is better off without him to prove to ppl she is worth TVB support.

        why do you people say that when she was given the Most Improved Award before their relationship started? she was on a fast track to promotion since her Miss Hong Kong title. its normal for them to promote her. all this hate is not logical, i just sense alot of insecurity and jealousy here. why are the people here so mean and callous?

      There are some who has been in the industry for a decade and there was at best a tiny improvement. She wants to be an excellent actress, she didn’t say she is an excellent actress. I find Aimee and Fala 2 of the most ambitious actresses and they’re not afraid to voice their ambition.

    I have been watching TLSA and still think Aimee’s acting is very un-natural and over-exaggerated. When she cries, it seems like she is trying to catch her breath. Yep, when she talks while crying, it was kind of painful. Still very amateur-ish. BSA award for her? It will be a joke. I must say there were a few mins of good crying scenes from her. But to get an award for BSA for that, it will be an insult to the acting profession. I cant help but chuckled at some of her acting scenes. Her facial expressions were just too fake!
