[新聞] 華裔美籍楊雅慧以面子入圍金馬獎最佳女主角

(中央社記者黃慧敏台北十八日電)華裔美籍影星楊雅慧(Michelle Krusiec)以電影「面子」(SavingFace)入圍第四十二屆金馬獎最佳女主角。電影公司原為她報名女配角,但評審認為她的演技可圈可點,主動將她改為角逐女主角,最後入圍最佳女主角。

楊雅慧在片中飾演陳沖的女兒,金馬評審團主席陳耀圻說,楊雅慧在片中將一個女兒與母親間的衝突詮釋得十分有說服力,表現可圈可點。

台灣觀眾對楊雅慧並不熟悉,連金馬獎入圍名單也只有她的英文名字。據博偉電影公司表示,楊雅慧一九七四年出生,畢業於維吉尼亞理工學院英文系,並曾在牛津大學讀書,隨後主持兩季探索頻道旅遊節目「世界嘉年華」。

楊雅慧在退出「世界嘉年華」主持群後,很快就成為美國國家廣播電視網NBC週六晨間影集「One World」的固定班底,之後還參加「Cold Case」、「失蹤現場」、「神經妙探」和「急診室的春天」、「老公不出牆」等電視影集演出。

她演出的電影有「美麗蹺家人」、「奶爸安親班」、「一不住二不休」、「魔咒」等。

楊雅慧也是一位劇場演員,她主演的「台灣製造」獨角戲在HBO美國喜劇藝術節演出時大受歡迎,並被譽為藝術節十大表演藝人,受到「綜藝」及「好萊塢報導」雜誌好評。

「台灣製造」將在紐約首映,並將被改編成電影作品,她同時是加州威尼斯A公寓劇團的成員。

「面子」是一部愛情喜劇片,故事描述一位女兒,試圖了解她母親的內心,最後也對自己有更深的了解。這是一個關於壓抑的愛、現代與傳統的衝突,以及兩個女人忠於自我、追求快樂的感人故事,將於十一月二十五日在台上映。

楊雅慧 好萊塢跑了17年龍套

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

【大紀元10月20日訊】自由時報記者曹玉玲╱台北─拉薩電話採訪
今年金馬獎最佳女主角入圍名單一出,許多人都在問:「Michelle Krusiec(楊雅慧)是誰?」事實上,現年三十一歲的她已在演藝圈打滾十七年,「面子」是她第一次挑大樑當女主角,結果一舉獲得金馬獎影后提名,演「面子」果然讓她有「面子」!

華人在好萊塢打拚不容易,楊雅慧十七歲時就出道,一開始先在電視影集演出小角色,後來又主持探索頻道節目「世界嘉年華」。

為了全心拚事業,楊雅慧放棄在牛津大學就讀,前往好萊塢發展,陸續在幾部大片如「美麗蹺家人」、「奶爸安親班」露臉,可惜都是「跑龍套」角色;最有趣的是她曾在喜劇片「Pumpkin」和克莉絲汀娜瑞奇大跳「草裙舞」,露上半身扭腰擺臀的模樣相當搞笑。

同樣有著東方臉孔,楊雅慧的演藝生涯不如劉玉玲、陳沖等前輩順遂,可是她從未放棄,演出第十部片「面子」終於被華裔女導演伍思薇相中當女主角,她將女同志的內心掙扎詮釋得絲絲入扣,鋒芒甚至壓過影后陳沖,如今獲影后提名,可說是熬出頭了。

面子嶄露頭角 楊雅慧盼在好萊塢更上層樓

941027

因為「面子」一片入圍本屆金馬獎最佳女主角的華裔女星Michelle Krusiec,在美國好萊塢可以說是繼劉玉玲之後,最被看好的華裔女演員。這部由美國獨立製片的電影十一月底將在台灣上映,而入圍金馬獎無疑為這部電影加分不少。台視記者林筱雯在洛杉磯專訪了這位華裔女星,談談她在好萊塢的奮鬥歷程。這部已經在美國上映的電影「Saving Face」,是Michelle Krusiec第一部挑大樑擔任女主角的片子。片中她飾演一位美國移民家庭第二代,不敢讓保守的母親知道自己女同志的身份,不過飾演母親的陳沖也有她自己的秘密。面子描述的不光是同性戀議題,還有移民家庭微妙的親子關係,對初次擔任女主角的Michelle來說是相當大的挑戰。事實上,Michelle進軍好萊塢已經有七年,她也道出亞裔演員在好萊塢發展演藝事業的艱辛。近年來,包括成龍、章子怡等人成功打進好萊塢,Michelle認為,亞洲電影近年來的蓬勃發展,對亞裔藝人來說是件好事。Michelle出色的演出已經為她爭取到好幾部片約,也獲得金馬獎最佳女主角提名,這位來自台灣的華裔女星屆時將會出席金馬盛會,希望故鄉的觀眾能肯定她的演技給她支持。

Hi, I'm from Singapore and I must say I'm totally in love with "Saving Face". Love its simplicity, heartfelt humor and its happy ending. I just can't get enough of it.

It's one of the best shows I watched this year!

Well done Alice, Michelle, Lynn and Joan!

P.S: I hope Michelle would win the award, she's deliciously fantastic!

Good news is, Saving Face is coming to Hong Kong, in a cinema other than DVD.

It is going to be shown on 17 Nov on the Opening Gala for this year's Hong Kong L&G Film Festival.

WOW! what can I say?

I LOVE this movie

everything about it is just so good

ya, some reviews say it is this and that, plot could be better etc

but from what I see, I just like very much

I've seen it 3 times

I look forward to see more production as humurous, as touching, as heart-warming as Saving Face

Think Lyne Chen (lovely Vivian) should also be nominated for best atress although she was doing more like a supporting role. However, I think she did a great job in delivering a broad range of emotions. For Michelle, think she needs to release the tension between her eyebrows a little because unwanted tension can be an actor's biggist enemy.

yup, Lynn Chen should be nominated for Best Supporting Actress. Well, Michelle's character "Wil" is confused and awkward, that would explain the constant frowning i guess.

新浪娛樂訊 今年因在《面子》金馬參賽片中表現很好,受評審委員青睞而主動由女配角晉升角逐最佳女主角的Michelle Krusiec(楊雅慧),昨日(4日)開心的在《面子》試片後亮了相。
Michelle上周就悄悄自洛杉磯來台,出生台灣,5歲被姑姑領養到美國跟姑丈姓的Michelle,壓根兒沒想到自己會入圍,“我在台灣是個新人,我以為入圍的是演媽媽的陳衝,所以很感動、很意外!” 31歲的Michelle相當嬌小,個性活潑,但在《面子》里,她演技自然清新,頗具封後的黑馬之姿。

楊雅慧國語不輪轉 搞到想吃水餃?

2005.11.08  中國時報
張士達/台北報導

以「面子」入圍金馬獎最佳女主角的楊雅慧,昨日到華納威秀出席映後座談,楊雅慧的媽媽也坐在觀眾席,與觀眾一起欣賞這部讓女兒揚眉吐氣的電影。看完後,楊雅慧擔心地問媽媽「會不會怕看我演同性戀?」媽媽鎮靜地說:「不會怕,這個是演戲。」
楊雅慧是ABC,拍攝前雖惡補了國語,說得仍不算很「輪轉」,不過她的誠意十足,這幾天在台灣面對媒體或觀眾發問,都努力以國語回答,盡量讓身邊的翻譯人員「形同虛設」。她說當時原本也很擔心演她母親的陳沖一聽到她的國語,會跟導演說「這演員不好」,把她給換掉,幸好排練時陳沖跟導演都說她的口音很像華僑,才讓她放心。不過昨天她一急,還是連「女主角」3個字也結結巴巴,讓她氣急敗壞比手畫腳地說:「唉呀,又是女主『角』、我想吃水『餃』、還有我的『腳』,很困難啊!」

Finally watched the film in Taipei. It's much much better than I already expect! The plot is great, the lines are great, the actresses are great. It's just a great movie and much more than just a les film!
I watched it after a tense day at work and came home totally relaxed and smiling to myself.
It's one of the best film I've seen in recent years. Hope Alice and all others keep up the good work!

I bought Savung Face DVD from amazon 2 weeks ago at $20+ and today, they are selling it at $14+ (40% off) what a difference!

anyway, I've since watched Saving Face a few times again and really still enjoy every minute of it, every scene, every moment, Alice, Michelle, Lynn & Joan are just AWESOME

considering everything, I doubt we can ever get a movie this interesting, warm and funny again

MK is perfect for the script, I juz don't see her doing as well in any of her other works which are so bimbo, especially her latest movie Cursed 2005 as a nosebled co-worker? whatz that?

I'm juz so thakful to the cast and crew for Saving Face

and I can't wait for them to release the SOUNDTRACK - it is so beautiful, and we, fans juz can't get enough of it since most are specially produced for the movie
