hard to imagine having a shy director behind the lenses
for such a controversial movie. But for Zero Chou, the
director of “Spider Lilies”, the lesbian-theme
movie from Taiwan happened to be one.
with cutesy-pie, compere/actress Rainie Yang, the pair
zipped into town recently for a whirlwind promotional
tour for the R21 movie.
on the influx of gay-themed movies in recent years,
Zero added that it’s an appropriate time to introduce
audience a movie that looks at lesbian relationships
she tends to hide behind the monitor during the shooting
of the more intimate scenes between the leads which
explained the "shy" factor..
The soft-spoken, young filmmaker feels the fresh pairing
of Rainie Yang and HK budding young actress, Isabella
Leong (a pity she was not present) resulted in great
chirpy Rainie says that it’s hard to believe that
Isabella in real-life is in fact a few years younger
than her, much to the surprise of the media.
prompted on how she prepare for her role as a daring
webcam girl, Rainie openly disclosed she has to plough
webcam girls websites using a disguised identity as
a form of research to understand and discover how her
onscreen character will behave.
Isabella’s soft, smooth facial skin and baby-like
smell, Rainie has no qualms on kissing and getting intimate
with her co-star as compared to say, getting cosy with
a male actor with stubble.
Despite facing objections from her fans in the initial
stage, Rainie feels it's just a character she's getting
into and she's definitely not the type of girl offscreen
so as to assure her worried fans.
The cute petite girl looks set to storm the acting arena
in future giving her guts to explore different types
of roles. Give her a little bit more time and we might
see more than just mere "Spider Lilies".
