How Michelle became a well-known actress – Jian Er Qing
(Foreword: If it is
not for the Hong Kong well-known producer, Mr. Jian Er Qing, Michelle will
not be famous now. It was his recommendation and wise decision of getting
her to act as Wong Yong that has brought her to the path of fame. So how
did Michelle get to know him? Here, the article below is written by Mr.
My birthday is on 2nd of September, and there were other
actresses like Carol Cheng, Wong Yu Fung whose birthday falls on the same
week too. However, there is one actress who bore the birthday date exactly
the same as mine and she is none other than Michelle Yim.
Very few of them knew that Michelle has once joined Shaw Brothers Training
School when she was young, because on that year those who received the
training was appointed to either the Television or to the Movie circles.
Michelle was appointed to the Movie sector, but received and played those
insignificant roles. I got to know her through my bosom, David Yip’s
wedding. I sat with Cheung Yeung, who had just returned back from America.
As Michelle has just finished filming a movie with Cheung, she has the
chance to sit with us.
I still remember that on that particular table, there are representatives
from TVB, ATV while I can be considered as the rep of CTV. We seem to have
noticed Michelle, and asked for her contact number individually. However,
I am the only one who contacts her.
It is due to this strange combination of circumstances that made Michelle
popular, being entitled as the one and only in CTV.
Legend of The Condor Heroes had recognized her status in television
circles. I am puzzled why she was overlooked during her days in the movie
sector, because just take a look into her eyes, you will find that she is
gifted in acting.
Michelle may not be a girl of attention-grabbing, because she was quite
tanned and not tall either. But if you discern her eyes, you would be able
to see that she is capable in acting. In addition to this, her bugs-bunny
teeth with her resplendent smile hung on her face was well liked by people
of all ages, much more brighten up our day. Though petite, Michelle does
not quite belong to that category. One glimpse at her, you will never
realize that she is teeny.
Legend Of The Condor Heroes had made people see CTV with new eyes, because
at that time the other two media broadcasts’ sword
was not as authentic as CTV’s – the CTV
film the fighting scenarios personally.
However, if it is not for Michelle, I don’t think that others will think
highly of LOCH and CTV, so it can be said that Michelle has lead the way of the sword fighting
As CTV was the weakest of the three media broadcast,
filming was definitely got to be fast – filmed
the whole day. The artistes would have to stay at the company
overnight. Once there is break, Michelle will eventually
her sleep at the company staircase. Due to this, the morale of the CTV is
I must admit that Michelle is formidable because she was the vying power
between the two television broadcasts
after CTV has closed down. Even till now, she was still well-liked by
all. No one could deny the fact.
