KUCHING: Despite receiving numerous lifetime achievement awards, international movie star Datuk Seri Michelle Yeoh said she would continue her acting career.
“I have received so many lifetime achievement awards, I hope they aren’t a message that says ‘go home now’, but I take each of them as an incentive so I can do better. I achieved this and I am going to try to achieve more,” said the Hong Kong-based Malaysian actress.
“So yes on all, I am very active because the world of media, whether film, television, is very much a passion and love (for me), I enjoy doing it so much, it is not a job,” she told reporters Friday night.
On her latest movie, Yeoh said it was directed by Korean-American filmmaker Gina Kim and was now in post-production stage. She hoped that it would be released in the summer.
Meanwhile, Yeoh said she would launch a talent search programme to scout for new Asian actors and singers.
“We are still in the planning process, when we are ready we will announce it to you, anyone who wants to be an actor, a singer, get ready we are coming to you.
Yeoh’s visit to Kuching is in conjunction with the three-day Aiffa 2013, which ended last night. — Bernama
