Rising Star, Venus Wong, Takes Acting Seriously
Twenty-two-year old Venus Wong (王敏奕) was determined to become an actress when she was only twelve years old. Starting her career in 2006, she first appeared in the mini show, Y2K Series <過渡青春>. Later in 2008, she took part in the movie, Winds of September <烈日當空>. Soon afterwards, Venus began working on numerous music videos and commercials. However, it was not until she was cast as the teenage version of Rachel Lee’s (李麗珍) character in Never Dance Alone <女人俱樂部>, did Venus finally make her breakthrough.
With her beautiful looks, Venus successfully stood out from the group of M-Club girls in Never Dance Alone. She also received a lot of praise for her acting abilities. With an increase of 2000 Instagram followers aside, Venus gained a lot of fans overnight. Viewers are able to recognize her in a crowd when she steps outside. “A lot more people are noticing me, and I’ve received positive feedback and messages. Many people praised my acting skills. As an actress, compliments make me really happy. I’m very thankful!”
In 2012, Venus bravely travelled to New York by herself for a month in order to take up acting classes. She recalled that she had to practice auditions on the first day. Being unprepared, Venus admitted that her acting for George Clooney’s Up in the Air, was ridiculously bad. Quickly catching on, Venus realized that acting in front of classmates and directors helped her gain valuable experience. When she was younger, acting was only a game, but now that she has gained more experience, Venus realized that becoming an actor is no easy feat. She will continue to strive towards achieving her dreams in acting.
