Natalie Tong (唐詩詠) has been stable in her status at TVB since she won the Most Improved Female Artist Award in 2010 for her role in A Fistful of Stances <鐵馬尋橋>. Throughout her years within the entertainment industry, she is considered a quiet artist who rarely makes it on the covers of gossip magazines. Compared to others, some may call Natalie unsociable, but this only means she took double the effort to have herself noticed and reach where she is today.
In Bullet Brain <神探高倫布>, Natalie portrayed Mui Mui, who had scenes in her teenage years as well as her middle-age years. In addition, Natalie’s character was also diagnosed with mental illness. Her acting skills were put on the test and she gained approval from more viewers. Even Louis Koo (古天樂), praised Natalie’s great performance, and invited her to act as his girlfriend in the upcoming film, Inferno 3D <逃出生天>. With the support from many fans and the opportunity to work with her idol, Natalie is certain her efforts had not gone to waste.
Speaking of the new film, Natalie exclaimed, “I’m very happy and excited to be able to collaborate with Louis. The cast and crew are very nice, and they understand that I’m new to the film industry. They didn’t place pressure on me and communicated with me very well.” Natalie’s most memorable scene would have to be the ending, where she meets her boyfriend Louis once again in the midst of the rain. “I hope everyone will keep an eye out for it,” she said.
Currently, Natalie is busy filming for new drama, Property Protector <守業者>. “The drama is about silk reeling, and it focuses on the tales of women within a silk factory. We portray characters that dare to love and hate, and it can be considered tragic. It’s actually a little similar to my own personality. The hardest part about the role is how I have to imitate actions of reeling silk. There were many skills I had to learn and grasp beforehand.”
Many of Natalie’s fans were curious about her relationship status. Asked what is most important to her right now, Natalie expressed that her career comes first. “Thanks to everyone and to fans who care about me and my romantic life. Honestly, love is very important for me, but right now my career is at the top of the list. I really enjoy what I’m doing.”
Although many girls believe being skinny is beautiful, Natalie thinks otherwise. “I actually think beautiful women are those with a healthy and even body shape. They need to have correct thoughts and self-confidence, understanding how to enjoy life and be happy.” Natalie shared how she uses Nature’s Cell-Plus High Definition Slimming Body Gel to help detoxify and tone the body. Since the product contains fully natural ingredients, she feels comfortable using it twice a day.
Living a nocturnal life like most other artists, Natalie would turn to yoga to calm and relax herself whenever she has the chance. When off work, she would not wear any makeup and give her skin a break. Furthermore, Natalie tries to avoid seafood or spicy foods and would drink plenty of water. She loves to eat fruits and vegetables, and would make soup when there is time.
Besides acting, Natalie would be happy if she has the opportunity to record a drama’s theme song one day. But for the time being, she would continue to work hard and achieve the best out of her filming roles.
