Cecilia Liu Shishi (劉詩詩) stepped away from the entertainment industry for some time after her marriage to Nicky Wu (吳奇隆) and the birth of their son in 2019. This year, Cecilia made her big comeback and filmed historical dramas A Journey to Love <一念關山> and Fox Spirit Matchmaker, Zhuye Chapter <狐妖小紅娘竹葉篇> and is in her peak form.
Behind-the-scenes clips of Cecilia’s kiss scene in Fox Spirit Matchmaker revealed her strong chemistry with costar Zhang Yunlong (張雲龍). Although Cecilia wore a simple costume, she had an air of elegance. In the scene, she re-arranged Zhang Yunlong’s clothes and he stepped forward to kiss her forehead. She was stunned at first, but then quickly regained her composure. Cecilia’s emotive eyes were unparalleled, transitioning from shyness to a vibrant, playful look.
In China’s entertainment industry, many stars frequently appear on variety shows to increase their exposure and influence. Many celebrity mothers also prefer to film variety shows due to shorter commitment and greater comfort, but Cecilia is different.
“I have slow reaction time and I am self-aware,” Cecilia revealed for the first time the reason why she chose not to appear on variety shows. When faced with sudden situations in variety shows, she may be unable to react as quickly as other stars.
Asked if her lack of participation in variety shows would affect her exposure, Cecilia replied, “I’m not too worried about it. There will always be gains and losses with certain situations. You just have to find that balance and ensure you are comfortable with it. The way I look at things is that I should try my best, but I won’t force the result. If you don’t force it then you won’t have such a big gap. Don’t let the results affect your state of mind–I think that the state of mind is quite important.”
Fans understand and are supportive of Cecilia’s decision to focus on her acting instead. They praised the actress for understanding her strengths and weaknesses. They left encouraging comments, “Just be yourself!” and “I support Cecilia in not appearing on reality shows! It helps the artistes be more convincing in their roles when the audience is not aware of their real personalities.”
