17 Jun – It's been many years since they first collaborated, but mainland actress Lin Yun (aka Jelly Lin) stated that she is still in contact with comedy auteur Stephen Chow and is always prepared to celebrate his birthday.
As reported on Epoch Times, the actress, who rose to stardom after making her movie debut through the filmmaker's 2016 movie, "The Mermaid", recently shared that she is preparing a big gift for Stephen's upcoming 60th birthday.
"For the past six years, I have sent him well wishes on his birthday. This time there is a surprise, but of course, it will be kept a secret," she said.
She added that everybody will find out what the surprise is on the day of Stephen's birthday, which falls on 22 June.
"Last year, I said that I would go to Hong Kong and have dinner with him. But because of the pandemic, I didn't get the chance to do so. I will definitely invite him again when I have the chance," she enthused.
Asked if she is always in contact with Stephen Chow despite her busy schedule, she responded, "Of course. I have always been in touch with Master Sing."
It is noted that Lin Yun, who was 18 when she was cast in the said movie, originally accompanied a friend to the audition, but in the end stood out from the thousands of young ladies who wanted the chance to work with the famed director.
