Susan Tse's popularity has gone up very rapidly recently. Just the phrase of "Jer jer(sister) wants to borrow something from you, it's your head" in
Talking about her role as the Grand Empress in
While everybody was cursing the Grand Empress, Susan laughed and said the audience should watch the episode when the Emperor died. The Grand Empress was betrayed by Ma Yuan-Zhi (Joseph Lee) and ended up a painful death. Susan said "In this series, I use my eyes to act. At the beginning, I used my eyes to look at the concubines, but at the end, I used my eyes to show I was desolate. I was practicing that at home, I couldn't help "eyeing" my husband. He was so frightened and asked me why did I look at him like that for?"
Susan had put on 10 pounds in weight for that role. She said "The background of the series is in Tang Dynasty. It is well known that the women in that era were plump. In fact it is good that I put on a bit of weight because I do look a bit better on screen. Moreover, the head decorations are very heavy, when we were filming, we had to be so careful. We even had to wear a neck collar to protect our neck when we were not in front of the camera. I must praise the producer for considering all the details in the costume design. The higher the rank, the more sophisticated the head dress and the costume are, and everyone's decoration is different."
Mirror, Mirror, on the wall, who is the scariest villain of them all?
Susan is the scariest villain of them all. Her glares are razor blade sharper than MR's Hung Yee, the words that come out of her mouth are even more striking than the MR's Sa Yee. She's the scariest Yee Yee of them all. If looks could kill, we would all be dead.
Is she evil? Chinese Paladin would probably say, "There is evil in good and good in evil. That is the Way." Hahaa. Anyways, I think the answer to that question depends on which perspective you're standing from. If you look through the lens of a mother, she's probably not evil since as she says, "
If she was my teacher, I would never skip class or be late for class, for fear of being struck dead by her deathly glares.
