Audrey Lin wins Best Actress at the age of 12

27 Nov - Young actress Audrey Lin has now become the youngest star to win Best Actress at the Golden Horse Awards.

As reported on Oriental Daily, the actress recently picked up her very first Golden Horse accolade for her performance in Chin Chia-hua's "Trouble Girl", besting contenders that include Hong Kong actresses Jennifer Yu and Chung Suet Ying, mainland veteran Hu Ling, as well as fellow Taiwanese actress, Lu Hsiao-fen.

"Thank you, Golden Horse Awards, for giving me this recognition," said Audrey in her speech. "Thank you for this role. It's not easy for people like Hsiao Hsiao. I hope everyone stays kind and things will get better and better."

The name Hsiao Hsiao refers to her character in the movie, a schoolgirl whose relationship with her mother becomes even more fragile after she discovers that her mother is having an affair with her teacher.
