Video of Chinese actress Fala Chen who shares some views about her hometown, Chengdu. Decent film but a bit long-winded, could have cramped more information in a three minutes video.
I always thought that she was born in America. Apparently she was born and raised in China instead, until she was 14 years old when she emigrated to the United States with her family.
Chen entered the show business after earning a place as 1st runner-up in the 2005 Miss Chinese International Pageant. She worked primarily with TVB in Hong Kong and starred in numerous TV drama series until her contract ended in 2013. She did quite well during that period.
The actress settled some personal matters and went back to school after that. She’s currently studying in Juilliard in New York; it’s one of the world’s leading drama, music, and dance school. She’s expected to graduate next year (with a postgraduate or master degree.)
Not sure when the video was made but it looks recent. I visited the city over two decades ago when China was still at early stage of its economic boom. A lot of things have changed, obviously. I’m thinking of revisiting the place for comparison sake, but there are other priorities at the moment.
