17 Sep – Chinese model-turned-actress Angelababy is honoured to work with Hong Kong visionary director, Tsui Hark in his new movie, "Young Detective Dee: Rise of the Sea Dragon", but confessed that the role she had to play was quite the pain.

Qoos website reported that the actress, who attended a press conference to promote the said movie with the director as well as co-star Mark Chao, revealed that she has had lessons in Tang Dynasty traditions, tea ceremony, dance and playing the Guqin in order to perform for her role as the courtesan Yan Ruiji.

The actress expressed, "The director gave me nine pretty costumes for the movie, but the costumes also made it hard for me to move around. I have to walk in long robes. If you're not careful, you're bound to slip and fall."

"In one scene, I had to play an instrument and dance on top of a wagon. Since it was rocking, the crew had to hold one of my feet to the wagon while the other one kicked. I spent the whole day supporting my body with one leg. After the shoot, I felt as if my body was torn into two. My leg felt numb for a week!" she lamented.

Tsui Hark added that he decided to have Angelababy wear a lot of unique costumes to reflect her beauty, saying, "Angelababy has mixed features. People in Tang Dynasty don't look like her, so I was intrigued on how a woman like this could look like in that era."
