Following the trend of an increasing number of artists establishing their own production studios, Cecilia Cheung (張栢芝) set up her own production company last year. This allowed her to have greater artistic and professional control over her career, while developing new talent. Cecilia will produce her first mainland TV drama, in which she hand-picked Viann Zhang (張馨予) to star in the project!
Although Viann Zhang was often featured in scandalous online fights with boyfriend, Ron Ng’s (吳卓羲) fans, the sultry 25-year-old’s acting career has gone on the fast track. Aside from the highly anticipated The Patriot Yue Fei <精忠岳飞>, Viann Zhang will be the female lead in Cecilia Cheung’s new drama, Naked Love <裸愛>! The male lead will be Victor Huang <黃維德>. Cecilia will only guest star in the drama, appearing as the “third party” in Viann and Victor’s love.
After partnering in The Lion Roars 2 <河東獅吼Ⅱ>, Cecilia Cheung was impressed by Viann Zhang and felt that her talent can be taken further. Viann’s manger, Jason confirmed that Viann will appear in Naked Love. He said, “Cecilia’s script is very good! Viann truly looks forward to this project!”
In hot demand, Viann Zhang allegedly turned down 4 film offers to star in Cecilia Cheung’s TV drama. Viann was paid a handsome 7-figure fee for the drama.
