Yang Mi films in frozen water for Beijing Love Story
Known for her dedication and intrepidity, actress Yang Mi lived up to her name again while filming for Beijing Love Story earlier this year. In order to be on schedule, the production team got a truck to break the 20cm – thick ice on a river so that Yang Mi could go in to film. At the time of filming, her legs were wrapped in several layers of plastics. Despite standing in freezing water, Yang Mi successfully acted out her role in one take.
Other than her dedication, Yang Mi’s also known for being a workaholic. In addition to the recently finished Beijing Love Story, there are one film and six upcoming dramas by her – Beauties’ World/ 美人天下 with Palace director Yu Zheng, 虎符传奇 with Palace costar Feng Shaofeng, a remake of 京城四少, family drama 我们同是一家人, another ancient series 洪武大案 and a guest star in Painted Skin drama. She has also begun work on two films and a new modern drama with Feng Shaofeng.
