“Baby Blues 3D” Promotes Rising Star Janelle Sing
Upcoming horror flick Baby Blues 3D <詭嬰吉咪> will show off the versatile skills of new actress Janelle Sing (盛君).
A graduate of the prestigious Beijing Film Academy, Janelle was handpicked by producer Raymond Wong Bak-Ming (黃百鳴) and is being nurtured into the next rising star. Confident that Janelle is the whole package, Raymond Wong has been heavily promoting her, giving her public exposure whenever possible. She was last seen in Wong’s Chinese New Year film Hotel Deluxe <百星酒店>.
To further raise her profile, Wong has given Janelle a leading role in Baby Blues 3D, starring alongside popular TVB artist Raymond Lam (林峯). Playing his disturbed wife, Janelle will share significant screen time with Raymond, including several passionate bed scenes. Despite their intimate collaboration, Janelle sees Raymond as only a brother, calling him professional and a gentleman.
Raymond’s real-life girlfriend Karena Ng (吳千語) also makes an appearance in the film as Janelle’s sister. Since Janelle and Karena belong to the same company, some are alleging rivalry as Karena lost favor due to her absorption in dating. Others are trying to ignite rumors about a possible love triangle off the set. Janelle denies any romantic inklings and urges the public not to compare her with Karena.
For two actresses who share the same target audience, it is certainly tempting to compare. Although Karena is well known to the public and has more industry experience, Janelle may have the advantage due to her pedigreed training and graceful appeal. In addition, Janelle is starting off with a clean slate while Karena’s public image has been largely dictated by her relationship with Raymond.
Whether Janelle can stand on her own will depend on her effort and the public’s reception. For now, the 23-year-old is busy building a solid foundation for her career, filling her calendar with promotional functions, advertisements, and television dramas.
