陳玉蓮自爆是「現代文盲」
10月10日(五) 20:50【on.cc東網專訊】 陳玉蓮出席晚宴時,自爆近日被朋友封為「現代文盲」,皆因不懂使用智能電話,更會因遇上技術問題煩惱到爆:「唔係好識用啲功能,不過內地用微訊就一定要。(唔玩微博?)大家熟悉我都知,我鍾意分享,但唔鍾意公開私人生活,微博又要成日更新,仲要用埋嘅話,我真係唔使瞓!」問到會否留港拍戲?她表示自從完成拍攝劇集《名媛望族》後,時間多放於內地山區義工方面。至於會否有戲癮,她說:「我啲癮好似飲咖啡咁,聞到香,拎到埋嚟咪飲吓。」

FORE GIRLS #1 – Aug 2013: Special Feature
The classic character of Xiaolongnu in the Hong Kong 80s TV series The Return of the Condor Heroes was made for Idy Chan. Her portrayal of this role made her a household name throughout Asia. Despite the cold exterior of the character, she was classy, elegant and feisty and played to perfection by Idy and the critics just loved her. While Idy Chan is no longer in the showbiz limelight, she has still been very active diverting her energy into charitable causes in remote regions of China, trying to help others less fortunate in the spirit of humanity.

A HELPING HEART
When asked why she became a volunteer worker, she was quick to point out that, actually, she as an organizer rather than a volunteer. A volunteer is someone who joins an organization to help others where as she organizes and manages charity projects allowing her to personally choose the direction in which to help others.

She believed that helping others was an important cause and one should do so with conviction rather just for the sake of it. In 2008, while organizing a charity event, friends suggested her that she should set up schools in these remote regions to provide that local children with access to education. What seemed like a logical step was not the appropriate one as she witnessed many schools had been built by others but the demand was not there, simply because there were not enough children to fill the schools. So, now with the benefit of hindsight, Idy will assess the needs of the region to establish what will really make a difference to their lives. Idy has managed to successfully continue doing charity work by benefiting from the people she surrounds herself with, people who can see potential in and hence will support and sponsor them so that they can fulfill their potential.

SELF-ENLIGHTENMENT
Under the tutelage of her mentor, she explains, she has changed a great deal and her experience in this field of work has led her to respect those who do this for living even more. She recognized this work to be both mentally and physically tiring and in order to help others, you first help yourself. Over the years she has seen much hardship while on her travels and now looks at life in a very different perspective.

One important lesson learnt is that after speaking with people from these remote areas and hearing their daily struggles and hardship, it is important to project a positive outlook, only then you can truly help them.

Idy has spent much time studying theology and psychology in an effort to improve herself, particularly for her work. With greater understanding of herself and life, she feels she can make a greater impact on the lives of those she is trying to help.

FROM MOVIE STAR TO SAMARITAN
Idy cam from humble beginnings in a district called Tiu Leng Keng in Hong Kong and look her first step into the entertainment industry at the tender age of sixteen when she enrolled in a school for performing arts. Her ambition was never to become a major star but simply to gain experience. As fate would have it, she was very lucky from an early stage and given many opportunities. Despite the success of her signature role of Xiaolongnu, she is proudest of her role in another lesser-known TV series that showed her range and tested her as an actress yet gave her less recognition.

Having let the industry for many years, she has been very much forgotten by the general public. To help her charity work, she often takes a picture of herself with the still prominent and famous Hong Kong superstar and former co-star Andy Lau to remind people of her past acting career. Most recently, Idy has stepped back in the limelight to once again increase her profile and boost support for her charity work.

Her charity work has been considered a success. However, Idy believes there is always room for improvement and one should never be too easily satisfied. You must always strive to better yourself and over achieve, only then can you truly excel in what you do. It is her persistence and support from her family that has kept her driven throughout the years but she recognizes the need to have realistic goals and not to dwell on the unachievable, otherwise you just end up achieving nothing in the end. Luckily for Idy, this has not happened and she continues today as she has done so many years ago with the same drive and spirit.

陳玉蓮預告回巢拍劇 時間未定
09月25日(四) 13:30 【on.cc東網專訊】 藝人陳玉蓮在香港大學以香港復康力量大使身份,出席由傷殘人士營運的迷你超市開幕禮。她表示已經為會方做了好幾年大使,所以有活動都會幫手:「最緊要就係宣傳啦,我係一個藝人嘛。同埋宣傳途中,如果有啲人經濟上可以支持個會,我都會同佢哋推廣出去囉!」更指會方除了政府資助外,都需要自行去籌款:「因為係唔夠錢!(難搵資助?)其實係非常困難,我哋都會去到廣西做呢件事,但其實都有啲困難囉。」因為多數人都未必完全認識會方的使命。
隨時離港
談到會否參考早前的「冰桶挑戰」推廣該會?陳玉蓮就坦言不清楚此挑戰:「我都係啱啱返嚟。」又表示自己近年常在中國山區:「所以呢個會都好好彩,有兩個大型 節目我都返到嚟。」而大陸學生上學時就是她做慈善的時間。至於今次有幾長時間留港?她謂:「我做完自己啲嘢就隨時再走。(又山區?)係呀!」
唔會主動搵工作
問有否打算再拍劇?陳玉蓮就坦言有與無綫洽談過:「但TVB都好好,都係睇吓我個時間咁。(即係會合作?)會,但係唔知幾時。(電影呢?)冇,呢方面就冇傾過。其實拍嘢方面我好被動,唔係好積極。(自己都想拍劇?)想!但同TVB個關係唔同,佢會去捉我個時間。」更笑言唯一變得積極是在山區會主動敲校門。談到曾在《神鵰俠侶》合作過的鄺佐輝患癌,她指自己是剛從記者口中得悉消息:「我好少聯絡圈裏面嘅人。」雖然平時沒有與他來往,但間中都會見到他,因此好希望他可以找到良方治病。
