齊溪:戒不掉的理想主義 Qi Xi: My Addiction to Idealism


I was shy to say I wanted to be an actress at that time Because I thought I wasn’t pretty And I was short-sighted I failed in the entrance examination of the Acting Department In the end I was enrolled at the Directing Department (of the Central Academy of Drama) I received an award for my debut film I was in fact muddled while shooting Mystery Why did people think Qi Xi was good Because the director Lou Ye was good No matter how I did it, he accepted it It was the director’s improvisation He let the kid knock the door ‘Daddy, mommy, open the door’ I said to Yuhang That his father and I were busy Just a minute ‘Yuhang, wait a sec’ That was my real reaction to the status quo I’m not a skillful actress I can’t cry whenever I need to I need to first feel it physically Then I can act When I was shooting Ever Since We Love In the scene at the doorstep of the dormitory I really took Han Geng as my boyfriend I was like ‘how could you not like me’ I slapped him across the face for many times His face swelled on the next day And he couldn’t shoot ad I asked him ‘Han Geng, how do you feel’ He said ‘Oh, you can’t have such a girlfriend’ I performed in Rhinoceros in love in 2008 I still love Ming Ming (a role in the play) so much But now I see her as an old friend of mine I wouldn’t equal her to myself ‘Human can live with carbon dioxide’ ‘As long as there’s love’ I’ve been shooting films And haven’t performed on stage for a long time Suddenly the director (Meng Jinghui) sent me a message on WeChat He said ‘I’m going to direct Teahouse by Lao She’ ‘I need an energetic actress who can rock the stage’ ‘Are you in’ After thinking for 20 seconds I replied him ‘I’m in’ ‘Each time you have an abortion, you would be two or three years older’ ‘A mirror never cheats’ We spent nearly two months rehearsing As the curtain went up slowly I thought of Mr. Feng Gong And his famous quote on the stage of the Spring Festival Gala ‘Dear audience, I miss you so much’ I’m finally back I’ve been a reckless actress I’m not afraid of pain or death I really play regardless of consequences Her acting is especially clean And neat To be frank I like her giggles a lot Her vulnerability And her mood swing I think they’re pretty good She already lives on the stage I’ve played a lot of roles Which seem to be deep and complicated women With numerous secrets hidden inside I really want to change myself from the temperament Like an exchange transfusion In Song Long, My Son Director Lou Ye said In the scene where I sat in bed and chatted with Wang Jingchun He saw a different me Something in my eyes and my temperament ‘How is Liyun’ ‘She’s fine’ Because she hadn’t seen Yaojun (played by Wang Jingchun) for a long time He was actually her first love And she came with the intention to make a mistake It seemed she was attached to her position firmly There was in fact a storm in her heart ‘Do you see the woman standing at the crossroad’ ‘She’s a streetwalker’ ‘Just like us’ In Bitter Flowers Lina was an illiterate She merely wanted to offer her family a better life She stole into France and became a prostitute there Because I didn’t play the role as a weak person So the audience could surely see themselves in her You don’t have to love Qi Xi in real life I don’t use social media I quit Weibo last year And I don’t often shop online I’m not smart The job as an actress is in fact quite silly You just believe what’s happening at that moment And you will say what the role will say I think an actress Should be quiet and invisible as herself She should hide herself In this way when she plays a role The role becomes the most significant And the brightest I love hanging out With a bunch of friends Dining, watching films, chatting I love sleeping in I’m really into lazy life
