Myolie Wu Hopes to Play a Doctor Onscreen

Having worked hard for many years, Myolie Wu (胡杏兒) now has more control over her career. This year looks to be a promising year for Myolie who hopes to make a name for herself in China.

Despite winning the TV Queen title in 2011, Myolie has never slowed down her pace. Seeking perfection, she will not hesitate to find out her shortcomings and analyze her performance each time.  “I used to be shy and dared not approach the seniors and trouble them. Many things I’ve learned were from my own experiences. But if I had sought the help of the seniors, I could have improved at a faster pace,” Myolie advised newcomers to be ready to ask more experienced artists for advice.

To prepare for her roles, Myolie will watch similar movies or dramas and observe the people around her. After filming Wine Beauty <红酒俏佳人> in China, Myolie returned to Hong Kong to film TVB series Rosy Business 3: No Reserve <巾幗梟雄之諜血長天>, in which she plays a strong woman once again. Myolie spoke of her role, “Because she has lost the most important thing in her life, she needs a rebirth. This is a story about how a special agent helps her country to get rid of invaders, but from her feelings, you can also see her weaknesses.” Myolie will be heading to Foshan later for on location filming.

New Challenges

Myolie revealed that her favorite series this year was Triumph in the Skies 2 <衝上雲宵II>. She has played a lawyer several times, but hopes to play a doctor or policewoman. Myolie said, “I do feel I’m a rather righteous person. I will speak up when I see unfairness.” Myolie added that she enjoys medical-themed shows and one of her favorite TV shows is Grey’s Anatomy.

Although Ghetto Justice <怒火街頭> helped Myolie win TV Queen, it was 2006’s To Grow with Love <肥田囍事> which gave her one of her biggest challenges in her career. Gaining 40 pounds for the role, Myolie revealed her yoyo-weight experience, “I felt a lot of pressure that time. Furthermore, it was announced very early that I would put on weight for that show so I felt that many people were observing me. I also wondered what if I could not manage to gain the weight? Then the show could not go on. After I gained the weight, I felt terrible. I could not even tie my own shoelaces. I lost my breath after walking up a few steps. I always felt my body was so heavy, as if something was pressing down on me. So that was not a good experience.”

Beauty Secrets

Just as quickly, Myolie shed all the weight she gained in To Grow With Love. Aside from exercise, Myolie said that mental strength was the key to her weight loss success. “You must have determination to cut down your food intake. Actually, as long as you really want to do something, you will surely succeed.”

Known for her baby-smooth skin and youthful looks despite her true age of 33 years old, Myolie revealed her beauty secrets, “I do not do anything special. But I eat healthily and I drink a lot of soup. I also use masks.”

When Myolie has a filming break, she enjoys relaxing at home, watching TV, and shopping online.  However, she will not travel alone as it is too dangerous. Myolie added, “I’m not the kind to go travelling alone as I’m afraid of being alone.”

Known for her hard-working ethics, Myolie does not like remaining stagnant and strives to learn new skills in her spare time. “Recently, I started learning French. This is something that needs a lot of listening and speaking practice. I usually study while I’m waiting for the transport. I don’t want to go through life thinking I’ve wasted my youth away. So I might as well make use of the time to learn something.”

      She’s got some makeup on, it’s nude but you can tell it’s there.

        I doubt that how many female artistes can take photos with absolutely NO makeup. They have to wear some makeup even when they go to food markets.

        You can see easily that Myolie had makeup on her eyebrows, eyes (with eyeliners and mascara), foundation, and lipstick in the above photo.

        Yup, she definitely has make up but it is light make up compared to what she usually wears. She looks ok…

        Lol. It’s called the no makeup make up for those who don’t know. it’s used to deceive the eyes in thinking that there’s no makeup on.

        Correct. Myolie wears light makeup in the above photo, but she does not look pretty though.

        at least it’s very light makeup and still natural compare to those her age but put thick makeup to avoid old looking face

        She wears really thick make up too so it is not like she does not at all.

    I want to see her in a policewoman role, although I wouldn’t want her to cut her hair. I’m excited for Triumph 2 to start airing soon!

    • Austin replied:

      I believe she was in Wars Of In Laws 2 though I’m not sure if it was briefly or throughout the whole series. I don’t think you need to cut your hair in order to look like a cop. Many women who are in the law enforcement have long hair.

      • HeTieShou replied:

        She was the lead in War of the Inlaws 2. You don’t have to have short hair as a cop.

        I know but I meant as a cop, I’m pretty sure she was or at least in the beginning.

        Oh yea, she was a cop for a portion of the series I think.. I have not seen that series in a long time so nearly forgot. Thanks for reminding me.

    did she take policewoman role or doctor role before???? I don’t rememeber I see that or I might be wrong. I am not her fans but feel sorry that she broke her relationship with her boy friend -Bosco…It is hard for a mid-age girl to find a male in HK! Hope she has a happy life!

        if they make an Oncall3 without the pairing of kenneth and Tavia, I think there would be a WWIII occurring since this couple pair is highly shipped lol.

      stop talking nonsense AL. what are you crapping about? myolie won’t have difficulties finding her other half she said herself that lots of guys throw themselves at her after the breakup but she just doesn’t want yet and want to focus on career! do you know she has lots of project now and had to cancel her vacation because she choose to focus on career and will start a mainland series in a few days!

      • HeTieShou replied:

        How do you know Myolie will not have difficulties finding a new partner??? Honestly, no matter how beautiful a woman is or whatever, after she reaches a certain age, it will be harder to find a partner… That is just how it is in general so it does not only apply to Myolie or anyone. However, it is true that some are luckier than others. One of my aunts did not get married until she was 43. But she got lucky that she married a nice guy that was around her age who loved her so much that he did not care about her age or whether she can have kids or not. However, not everyone is so lucky… Even Carmen Lee is in her early 40s and does not have anyone or is married and I must say that in her prime, she was a lot prettier than Myolie and probably more successful as well. But she is now still single and you have to admit that it will be really hard for her to find a boyfriend/husband at that age, unless she marries someone that has already been married or something…

        Lol stop bashing other people, and I’m pretty sure guys don’t “throw” themselves at Myolie that’s not classy. I’m pretty sure she don’t use that term either. Sure she may have many pursuers but it doesn’t mean all of them are compatible for her. And this goes for everyone it’s hard to find your significant other that you find comfortable with and can communicate with each other.

      because compare myolie to her 33 year old peers such as kate, tavia, sharon myolie has the smoothest skin and most youthful looks. evident from the makeupless picture above. can you imagine kate without her fake eyelashes and tavia without her thick foundation

      • HeTieShou replied:

        You are so bias as usual Sel_fi_wu. You can praise Myolie but do not put others down. I have seen photos of Kate with little make up and honestly, she looks a lot better than Myolie does. Not sure about Tavia but Tavia just generally has a more mature whether it be with make up or not. Myolie wears extremely thick make up as well and she honestly does not look so great with little make up just like any other actress.

        Among the top 5 fadans, I think Fala Chen is the pretty one who can wear little makeup because she has a very pretty face. None of the other four will look good with little makeup. I think they all need makeup, just some more than others (i.e. Tavia Yeung more than Kate Tsui). Kate was not pretty at all when she joined TVB, but she seems to be prettier and prettier now. It has to do with her maybe plastic surgery (eyes and face), and the expertise of makeup.

        In fact, all actresses seem to look prettier after joining TVB. Perhaps TVB has some magic to make them look prettier!!

        I personally don’t think Fala looks pretty without make up. I still remember those photos of her with little/nude make up and she scared me…. She definitely needs the make up just like the rest of them…

        Thanks for pointing that out Yen. Oh my gosh, she has make up on and all, but she is getting praised for her natural looks?? I don’t even want to imagine how she looks when she has no make up and all…

        lol @sel_fi_wu, I read your comments and just laugh. Clearly you are obsessed with Myolie, but please…stop trying to downgrade other artists’ to push your opinions further on top. You make so obvious…

        In my opinion, I think Fala has the most natural look. Her face is always similar+recognisable with or without makeup on.

    Myolie is coming into her own as an actress. She has a way to go, to be in the dazzling actress class, but she is going to get there. She does have a strong and beautiful voice as a singer. Maybe our pretend resident doctor can give her some tips how to ‘play’ the doctor role, lol. .

      Agree. Myolie is best in comedy, and worse in tragedy. I think she acted a bit better lately. I could not tell whether she was crying or smiling in her past drama series.

      • HeTieShou replied:

        I think she is better in those tragic and sad roles rather than those comedy ones.

      • sandcherry replied:

        Myolie Wu does exaggerate in her comedic roles, but personally I don’t think she can act tragic roles. At least she brings fun to her audience in comedic roles, and not sadness in tragic roles.

        In conclusion, I don’t think Myolie is a good actress. Her acting is rather weak and not impressive. She is worst in acting royal (Ching Dynasty) characters, e.g. queen in “Curse of the Royal Harem”. She could not bring out the special, elegant, and royal characteristic of a queen in Ching Dynasty.

    Sometimes she tries too hard on comedy in my opinion. Like In The Eye Of The Beholder and Wars Of In Laws, it’s not her best work. I really liked her earlier roles more than what she was given lately. Come to think of it, I don’t think there was a role I actually really enjoy from her..if I have to pick it would probably be in Survivor’s Law. She was in a lot of good series but her roles in those series weren’t that great like in The Master Of Taichi and War And Destiny. Both great series but her roles wasn’t. She needs something different, maybe in Triumph In The Skies 2 where she isn’t as loud as her other characters.
