So, I lived at the Beijing Opera, I ate there, I learned a craft. And the money we made went into the company.
But I really want to be an artist, so therefore I have to live a little bit like a monk.
If you come from a normal family, you immediately start playing the role of a boy, a girl a man or a woman, but I'm sure you'll agree with me that those are only roles, limited roles, at that.
I have not lived so abundantly, full of family, full of continuity and history.
