My favourite actress is Meryl Streep. She’s elegant, educated, classy and diverse in her acting. She also has a great sense of humour, at least she comes across that way in the films she is in. She is now quite old, and very well-respected, too. I don’t really know what her personality off-stage is, but I do know that she is a person with an amazing ability to perform and perform a range of very different roles. I have always been a big fan of movies and movie culture, and I believe that Meryl Streep is one of the most famous actresses in cinema history.
I believe that the last movie I saw her in was Mama Mia, a musical about a woman who buys a run-down hotel on a Greek island, and then she has a ‘summer of love’ when she has a daughter with several different men, and the whole film is about finding out which is the father of the daughter. It’s a funny movie about a risqué subject, done in a hilarious and sometimes very moving manner, set in an exotic Mediterranean location. I always admire actors and actresses that are able to play very diverse roles. This is the main reason why I like Meryl Streep.
I also like actors that have a sense of poise and dignity, even if they are playing crazy roles. So, all in all, I am attracted to more elderly female British actresses, like Meryl Streep or Maggie Smith. You may have seen Maggie Smith in Downton Abbey, which is quite famous in China – I love that series. It’s absolutely gripping.
# What kind of music do people like at different ages?
Predictably, teenagers are likely enticed to hip hop and rock music. On the other hand, elders can possibly be into softer or happy sort of music, for instant; jazz, blues, country, classical.
# What kind of music is popular in China now and what kind will be in the future?
Some teenagers like hip hop, there even has a TV show called“中国有嘻哈”means“China has hip hop” in literally……. Most people like pop music, it's popular among us. And I think the style of Chinese Pop music is a little different from it in America. And others like country music,rap music don't have the influence like Pop music.As for classical music, I don't think it is popular among teenagers, perhaps it is popular among successful people.
# Do Chinese parents require their children to learn to play musical instruments?
Not really. Studying a musical instrument can be expensive. Not most family can afford it.
# Why do some people like to listen to live music while others prefer CDs?
For example, some people prefer live recordings of Joy Division over the studio versions because they prefer the band's originally faster, scrappier sound to the more cold and austere sound that Martin Hammett was pushing them to make in the studio. Ultimately, it's all just a matter of personal preference.
