“Fashion War” Gave Ali Lee More Fangirls

Ali Lee (李佳芯) said she has gained a lot more fangirls after starring in Fashion War <潮流教主>.

The 33-year-old, originally known for her “homewrecker” roles, enlightened viewers with her portrayal as a strong and calculative businesswoman in Fashion War, a drama series about the Hong Kong fashion industry.

“It was unexpected,” said Ali. “My character wasn’t exactly a good person, but the reactions turned out pretty positive. I’ve gotten a lot more female fans calling out my name or my character’s name. I’ve gained a new set of fans from the role.”

Asking if Ali would avoid getting cast in homewrecker roles from now on, she said, “I never choose my roles so I can have the opportunity to play a variety of different characters. I play a mother in my new series.” Ali added that she is not afraid getting typecast. “I only think about how to do the role well. I don’t think about anything else.”

Ali Congratulates Tavia and Him, Doesn’t Think Joel Chan Is Pursuing Her

Ali’s Fashion War costar Him Law (羅仲謙) secretly married Tavia Yeung (楊怡) in England last week. Ali said, “No wonder I didn’t see him during our last [Fashion War] promotion event. I’m very happy for them!” With many TVB artists getting married in recent months, would Ali consider one too? “No plans yet! Haven’t even thought about it!”

Rumors say that Ali’s other Fashion War costar, Joel Chan (陳山聰), has been trying to pursue her. “I don’t know about that,” she said. “Joel is extremely nice. We share the same manager and he is my senior. He monitors my performance and gives me many suggestions.”

Ali said she doesn’t feel like Joel is trying to pursue her at all. “We interact like how we always do. I really don’t feel it.”

The gossip claimed that Joel couldn’t get out of character and fell in love with Ali. “You’re going to have to ask him about that,” said Ali. “But we are all professionals. I think people are just thinking too much into it.”

    Glad to know that. Hope her career will gain some traction from this. Among the newbies promoted by TVB, Ali has the most potential. Look forward to seeing her gain fadan status.

    I’m actually not surprised. Though I didn’t think she was outstanding in the role, it was a surprisingly complex one. She was self-serving and conniving, but also had some sympathetic moments. Also, I’m sure it didn’t hurt that half the men in the series seemed to have feelings for her. 😛

    Anyone else watch Fashion War? I kind of skimmed the end and wasn’t sure if her character ended up with anyone.

    I’m fan of Ali Lee, glad she is getting more popular and better roles…

    Vincy doesn’t end up with anyone, she did have a one night stand with Francis though…

    Fashion War was a pretty good series, the twists and turns in the plot made it interesting…

    I enjoyed that the series didn’t force people to be together or too many distracting pairing shenanigans to be cute.

    Ali Lee is one of the gems. She is quite volatile who can play almost any roles thrown at her, from good to villain. And best of all she is pretty looking. Hope she is given more main roles and good scripts to play.

    Ali hasn’t been all that impressive to me. She’s pretty and definitely has potential. I take her over Grace and Sisley any day BUT I won’t want to see her as a lead just yet either. I hope TVB can groom her properly or she take it on herself to improve. I’m not a fan but will be rooting for her!
