陳玉蓮與發哥見面冇尷尬
[20:03] 2013/07/02【on.cc 東方互動 專訊】 藝人陳玉蓮在電台節目中被問當年與周潤發的一段情?她說:「入行之後就好想結婚離開呢個圈。(因為周生唔同你結婚?)要問周生。(分手涉及第三者?)我冇,要問佢(指發哥)有冇。(你提出分手?)要問周生。」問到日後與發哥見面可會感到尷尬?陳玉蓮說:「點解要尷尬!都係一個人。」

前來影樓的陳玉蓮莫說化妝,連美容也放棄,自嘲:「四年前《原來愛上賊》已經俾觀眾鬧肥到破壞形象啦!」陳玉蓮脂粉不施而來,拍照前倒不停搽手霜,對鏡說:「並非怕老,是怕醜樣。」「係觀眾無長大啫,大家中晒小龍女毒,小龍女唔會死添!人梗會老,如果我永遠停留小龍女模樣你仲驚啦。」

陳玉蓮信奉「以戒為師」,但不避葷腥。「茹素了幾年,身體支撐不住。佛陀托缽吃十方,從無揀飲擇食。西藏的喇嘛搵兩棵菜都艱難,不吃肉吃什麼?比起有些人打着宗教旗號其實為了減肥美容,在奢華的餐廳吃極品素食,誰更似跟隨佛陀?」

陳玉蓮:「以前人幫我,好應該現在我幫人,但這並非主要目標,人生並非追求成績。常說學佛,但佛陀首先示範了他是不稱職丈夫——拋妻棄子出家,示範了不稱職兒子——拒絕繼承王位導致國家滅亡,這些人倫道德都不惜違反了,因為他想人學他的更大目標——超脫輪迴。」

2012-10-17 Idy Chan attended some event in Shenzhen with Lawrence Ng 吳啟華. Only found few blurry photos on Weibo, and heard that Idy even performed a song on stage, and it’s Teresa Teng’s 鄧麗君 trademark song “The Moon Represents My Heart 月亮代表我的心”.


Thanks JC for the clearer photos.

不可有獨立思想 不能常聯絡家人
陳玉蓮收徒注重樣靚身材正

金庸筆下的小龍女特立獨行,現實中的陳玉蓮亦自成一派,「我相信有神的存在,但我不是基督徒或天主教徒,跟隨師父多年,無論靈性與智慧,我都有很大進步。」近半年來,她穿梭國內不斷行善,其中一個重要項目,是「收徒弟」。「面試了好幾百人,幾乎都是家境貧困的女孩,如果可以跟到我,那是非常幸運,可說改變她們的一生。」

三年前拍罷無綫劇集《原來愛上賊》,陳玉蓮又轉趨低調,除了偶爾客串港台節目以外,她全力修行與行善,不常在港;最近海港城與聖雅各福群會復康服務合辦「泥造人 樂造人」陶藝展覽,身為聖雅各福群會陶藝工作室創辦導師的蓮妹,亦因身在內地未能出席開幕禮,找着蓮妹,伊人正身在重慶。「最初,是一位日本陶藝家告訴我,很多大學都有藝術治療,一邊教人、一邊自己學習;智障人士做陶瓷,不應該着重展品得到幾多人讚賞,在反覆將泥土搓爛的過程中,讓我們重新改造、自我反思,就算是我這些所謂『正常人』,一樣要學懂謙虛,真誠地面對批評,勇於承認自己的不是。」

我說,蓮妹積極行善十多年,很偉大,她果然回應得很真:「我係咪好偉大?都係o架!譬如上山區要行幾個小時,很多人說,陳玉蓮可以用錢解決一切,叫人去行不就可以嗎?但我寧願親力親為,這不是要大家覺得我偉大,而是要了解實情,就一定要身體力行,好讓其他人知道,凡事並不是唾手可得。」作為義工,她希望給弱勢社羣最大的幫助,最近的一大動作,是計劃挑選幾個年齡介乎十三至十七歲的小妹妹,收為徒弟。「這個年紀的小朋友,思想未固定,如白紙一張,好教 啲;但兩年前,有一個廿多歲的女孩,剛讀完大學,跟她說我的理念,她立即願意跟我。」跟蓮妹幹些什麼呢?「主要做義工,我也會找專人教她們打功夫、英文、禮儀,當我做代言或其他演藝工作,她們就會做助理;除了照顧起居飲食,我還會定期給錢她們的家人。」

不排除收男徒弟

◄校長宣布陳玉蓮想收一名徒弟,幾百個女學生隨即如蟻附羶、蜂擁報名;但接見了所有人,蓮妹說,仍未有一個完全合她心水。

蓮妹收徒的淵源,始於幾年前替港台主持節目,接觸了「青鳥」與「紫藤」兩個關注性工作者團體,有機會跟一些來自四川、重慶、貴州的年輕女生傾偈,留下深刻的印記,決意要幫助她們脫貧。「我不可能幫助所有人,做善事一定要認清自己的能力,好多人做義工,未學懂游泳就跑去做救生員,救人不成淹死了自己。」她收徒的概念獲得貴州政府支持,一間學校的校長對着全體學生宣布:「陳玉蓮想收一個女徒弟,有人願意追隨她嗎?」全校千多名女學生,有三、四百人立即響應,湧到蓮妹面前報名,場面哄動。「大陸有一孩政策,有人提我:『陳玉蓮,父母不會將孩子交給你的!』但若是聰明的話,就知道跟隨我的好處,有些家長一聽我的理念,即時就說:『什麼時候帶我的女兒走?』」為什麼不收男生?她笑:「我不懂帶男生,大家一起生活,還是女生比較容易溝通!不過,我也不排除會收男徒弟,最好性格溫馴、身材健碩,陪着我一起入山區,比較有安全感。」

在貴州見了好幾百人,還是不合蓮妹眼緣,後經朋友介紹,收了兩個小妹妹,共同生活了一個月,蓮妹說她們仍未算正式徒弟。「好多條件都爭,我一定要白裏透紅,身材好,不是model那種,我要豐滿型,男人看女人,看靚女人都會舒服啲,我要天天對着她,當然希望有個漂亮女生在身邊。」蓮妹收徒講求外在條件,又會提供一連串學習機會,是想培育弟子進入娛樂圈嗎?「完全不會排除這個可能性,但也要看她們有沒有這個材料,再因材施教。」

突然好想拍打戲

有幸入門,成為陳玉蓮的弟子,需要遵守什麼戒條?「沒有什麼特別戒條,她想走,隨時都可以,唯一是不可以整天聯絡屋企人,如果我們剛好到她的鄉下做義工,譬如成都,她當然可以回家放假;作為學徒,也要百分百服從,不可以有獨立思想,意見固然可以提出,但不能脫離我們的想法。」有云養一個小孩要四百萬,雖然蓮妹想收十三至十七歲的弟子,但起居飲食與教育經費也屬不菲,錢從何來呢?「沒有任何人捐獻,一分一毫都是我、師父與幾位同修師兄弟一起集資的。」據聞之前蓮妹曾在香港與加拿大分別中過兩次彩票,獲得合共五千萬獎金,故將之回饋社會乎?她有點遲疑,但還是禮貌地笑着回應:「這個好難答你……總之,是我與所有同修一起出錢吧!」

師父認為,蓮妹應該將自己的修行告訴年輕一代,最直接的方法,就是拍一部電視劇,讓更多人認識或記起她,再宣揚自己的理念,是以零七年她復出接拍《原來愛上賊》,之後無綫再為她度身訂造一部功夫劇,卻因檔期間題而押後。「我突然好想拍打劇,TVB好疼我,本來為我開拍一部以太極高手李暉為藍本的古裝劇,檔期都傾好晒,但開拍前TVB說,因為另一部劇要多用十幾天廠期,但我的期完全不可以調動,結果拍不成,我也覺得好可惜。」這股忽然冒起的「打氣」猶在嗎?她哈哈笑:「還在呀!有些人聽完會說:『你這把年紀還拍打戲?』我說很有趣呀,希望稍後有機會成事吧。」

Random Blogs – Fans in TW Meeting with Idy back in Dec 2008 for Aaron Kwok Concert & CMN Function:

Idy Chan along with Joe Ma were in Taipei yesterday [Dec 8th] to promote the showing to “Catch Me Now” on Taiwan’s TVBS-G. Living up to her “Little Dragon Girl or SLL” nickname, Idy appeared simple and beautiful still, she acknowledged to Jin Yong’s comment on how she’s similar to SLL the most, that she’s active in helping the elders, mentally disordered children, martial arts excercising, mediation, living in seclusion, and volunteering in many charity organizations throughout US, Canada, and China. She even spent a month in Sichuan for Earthquake victims.

Joe Ma expressed “Seeing her is like a child seeing his teacher, I’m very honored to work with her.” Since Idy is being called as “Lin Mui”, at first Joe planned to address her as “Lin Je” but he feared it’s like calling her “old”. Joe said “Later when I hear everyone else calls ‘Lin Mui’, I’m no longer afraid. ” Joe’s looking forward to enjoy the local good food while in Taiwan.

Idy also expressed that she wants to do a documentary on Buddhism.

Today marks the 25th year anniversary of TVB Classic “The Return of Condor Heroes (ROCH)” starring Idy Chan & Andy Lau. On this very day October 31, 25 years ago in 1983, ROCH was officially aired on TVB and even though I didn’t get to see it until a few year later, after almost 20 years, this TV series remains fresh in my heart. I’m posting some old photos of the beautiful pair Idy Chan & Andy Lau during that time. I’m feeling nostalgic…

Newsbits:

  • TVB will celebrate its 41st Anniversary next month. The Anniversary Awards Ceremony will be on November 15, 2008.
  • “Catch Me Now” is nominated in “Best Drama” category, Damian Lau is nominated in “Best Actor in a Leading Role” for his role as Ko Chit (Jack), Johnson Lee is nominated in “Best Actor in a Supporting Role” for his role as Tam Ben (BT), and Sharon Chan is nominated in “Best Actress in a Supporting Role” for her role as Kong Kiu. [Of course, no nominations for Idy, sad for 5 sec. haha]
  • Idy Chan as a cameo in Ann Hui’s “The Way We Are” is now available on DVD @YesAsia.

Just a few days ago, I received an email from this film producer/director/consultant asking for Idy Chan’s representatives. At first, I thought it was one of the million spams that supposed to go into my “Spam” folder everyday. Then I googled the name of this producer, it’s so surprising that s/he is credited in many television works in the States and Canada. So I quickly replied back that I’m simply just a fan. The person replied me back within minutes asking if I would happen to know the name of Idy’s manager/agent, and once again, I disappointed the filmaker’s arguably genuine request. Click Here to see the content of the email as the proof.

Certainly that Idy isn’t in high demand in HK showbiz anymore and especially with her brief comeback for TVB’s “Catch Me Now” and cameo in Ann Hui’s docudrama “The Way We Are”, she received heavy and unwarrantable criticism from media, audience, and even her own fans. But what surprised me, that there’s still random filmakers out there are still interest in her. Of course, I wouldn’t know for sure if the true intention of this filmaker looking for Idy, but I bet anyone would quickly guess that the email is asking for her to offer a role… right?

Anyways, if Damian Lau didn’t meet Idy when filming in Vancouver, and if Idy wasn’t there at that very moment, we could never get to see her on screen again, the world would be completely out of touch with her. And that’s how I feel now since she disappeared after CMN to live her quiet humble life.

I know there’s people who haven’t watched nor finished watching “Catch…”, but this entry is like a cure for those who are suffering “CMN withdrawal” …like me. Hope you enjoy this amateur video (contains spoilers!) that I spent so many hours creating it. Let me know what you think, thanks!


Go HERE for information on the song and English translation of the lyrics, one of my favorite songs by Jacky Cheung. It just fits the relationship of Jack & Yung so well 😉

The good quality video for Special Alternate Ending – The Undead Legend is available for download @this Megaupload link.

A deleted scene discovered @lauchungyan.com. I believe that there’s many many more but most of the time TVB doesn’t include behind-the-scenes, the making of, special features, etc. in their DVDs, unless they’re deluxe, limited, or whatever else editions.

TVB Classic channel has been airing the 68-episode “This Land Is Mine 風雲” since April 28 (to July 28). This is the series in which young Damian was already the leading man paired with Fung Bobo, while young Idy only played a supporting role paired up with young Kent Tong [see clip below], Simon Yam, George Lam are also in this series.
