《我在好莱坞》专栏 关于这个栏目
世界名人网专题报道 作者:Grace Yang          于 April 28, 2015 at 01:24:21:
我非常荣幸被贵刊邀请写《我在好莱坞》专栏的创作,能够与更多的朋友一起分享我在好莱坞的一些见闻和经验。在好莱坞做专职的演员可以了解很多不为人知的“内部消息”。比如我有很多做音乐的朋友,我经常去现场看他们的彩排和音乐会;还有一个朋友是Disney乐园的特约花样滑冰表演家,她的表演让我看了一次又一次地流连忘返;我也曾去看太阳马戏团的后台,看他们是如何组织调度整场演出。久而久之,我越发觉得娱乐竟然是如此重要,它用它独特的方式,将来自世界各地、不同种族、不同形式的文化巧妙地融合在一起。

每个演员来到好莱坞的原因各有不同,有些可能是在学校学习演艺专业,有些可能是在家乡的剧场做过演出,或者是被周围的朋友激励起表演的兴致。对我来说完全不同。我女儿禄畅(Yvonne Lu)五岁已经在休斯敦开始了演艺事业,她做了很多儿童平面广告和舞蹈表演。后来在几千名海选中被好莱坞导演和奥委会选中,11岁的她做为华人的唯一代言人参演了北京2008年奥运会的形象宣传片。被誉为“美中之星”,“奥运童星”等,为华人增光添彩,授中国领事馆的多次接见并特授予“美中希望之星”奖。

有一次我陪她上夜间表演课,另一位孩子的母亲走来问我:“你有没有看到办公室里的公告牌?”有一个叫《Over Due》的短片正在寻找一个亚洲女性演员扮演其中一个角色。我听着但并没感兴趣。过了一会儿她又过来问我:“我可以把你的电话给选角导演吗?”“好啊,没问题”我答复了她。第二天,选角导演打来电话邀请我去参加试镜。到了现场我拿到剧本台词,才发现有很多年轻的女孩来试镜。原来角色要求是二,三十的年轻女性,而我当时已经四十岁了,再加之我也没有任何表演经验。就觉得十分尴尬和失望。 我想:来这试镜简直是在浪费时间。但是既然来了,我就只好进去了。奇怪的是,最后我还真拿到了这个角色。回想当时来看,我觉得是因为这个角色需要的就是我自己本色。现在,我已经是专业的演员了,发现试镜对我来说是最难的一关,并且充满了挑战。

即便那次演出对我来说是一次非常好的经验,可直到他们付我钱的那一刻,我还是没搞明白他们为什么选上我,我到底有什么不同之处。我没有过要做明星的梦想,我只想做一个专业的演员。我女儿禄畅对未来有自己的规划,并且正在按照她的计划进行。她十岁的时候我们从休斯敦开车到好莱坞来拍摄一个电视节目,而她十一岁的时候我们已经搬到了好莱坞,她也已经在好莱坞开辟了自己的演艺事业。

在禄畅成年之前,我必须陪着她一起去试镜、拍电影。同时我也被选上了全美国的平面广告Wells Fargo银行的亚裔代言人。并且开始接一些航空公司,和电影的配音,以及电视广告等工作。大概不到二年,我开始被选上不同的角色,我发觉好莱坞需要象我这样的演员。这时我觉得我需要找一个经纪人或经纪公司了。想曹操,曹操就来了,我女儿的经纪人打来电话,想代理我。这样我和我女儿签到了同一家公司,我也开始了专业的表演事业。

随着演出机会越多,试镜的难度就越大,竞争就越激烈,挑战也就更大。 我曾经有一断时间很彷徨,曾想放弃演艺事业。后来我重新审视自己,回想早期入道时没有任何经验,为什么却常常被选上的原因。发现当你特别想得到时,你就会很紧张,必须要学会如何放松,同时要加强演艺的学习,提高自身的各种能力和应变,更要拓展和丰富人生经验和经历。经过调整自己,情况有了很大的进展和变化,越来越好,我又找到了自信和表演的乐趣。2011年,女儿和我都加入了演员工会,现在我们母女都是活跃在好莱坞的专业演员了。

《I'm in Hollywood》
Introduction

I feel privileged to be asked by the editor to give some of my insights into the world of entertainment. Specifically acting in film and television since I'm a full time actress in Hollywood. However, I have many friends that are musicians, and I've watched their rehearsals and traveled with them to their concerts. I have a friend who is a professional ice skater, who skated for Disney world on ice. I have gone to her shows with her many times. I've even gone to the back stage of Cirque Du Soleil in my travels. Over time I've come to the conclusion, entertainment is so special and so important for connecting the world, It doesn't matter what the stage is.

A lot of people come to Hollywood straight from schools of fine art, or had some success in their local theater or community that encouraged them to make the move. For me it was a little different. My daughter Yvonne Lu was the one who was already working with Page Park a local agency in Houston, Texas where we lived at the time. She was doing print work, and dance shows. Later Yvonne went on to be the girl representing China in the commercial for the 2008 Olympic games.

One night at her acting class, one of the other mothers came up to me and said have you looked on the bulletin board in the office? She said there was a notice there looking for an Asian woman to play a small roll in a short film called “Over Due”. I wasn't really interested. Later she came up to me and asked: “Is it okay if I give your phone number to the casting director?” “Yes, I guess so.” I replied. The next day the casting director called, so I went to the audition. When I arrived there, got a script in my hand, and saw all the pretty young Asian girls there for the part, I thought this is ridiculous. For one thing I was too old, they were looking for twenty to thirty, I was almost forty. Another thing I had no experience. I thought “This is a waste of my time.” I got the part. Looking back I think I got it because It made no difference to me. Now that I've become a serious actress, auditioning is so hard for me.

Even after doing that part, which was a great experience, I still didn't think anything special about myself except the fact that they paid me. I had no pipe dreams of becoming a movie star. I still don't, I just want to be a serious actress. My daughter Yvonne had plans, and was achieving them. By the time she was eleven we were making trips to Hollywood where she was appearing in TV shows. By the time she was thirteen we were living in Hollywood and she worked pretty regularly.

Since she was a minor, I had to be with her at auditions, and on set when she filmed. It wasn't long before I was offered a part for wells Fargo. Then I did some print work, and started doing voice over for the airlines. It was around that time I thought to myself “Maybe I need management.” It seemed like the parts kept coming my way. I signed with Yvonne's management, and started taking things serious.

The more serious I was, the harder it became. I had to sit down, reeva luate my situation, and go back to the frame of mind I had when it didn't matter so much to me. Since then things have gotten easier for me. I am back to having fun again. In 2011 Yvonne and I both joined the Actors Guild, I guess we are both professionals now.
