Last week, Chinese actress Michelle Ye shared on Weibo that she suffered an injury to her face while performing on stage for a play.

As translated by a Singapore entertainment portal, the former TVB actress wrote: “The prop knife sliced a hole in (my) face when I was performing yesterday. (I) carried on the entire show with the bleeding hole, but surprisingly didn't feel pain at all.”

Only after the show ended, did the actress go to the hospital.

The 42-year-old is starring in a play adapted from the famed Chinese novel, Red Shorgum which was written by Nobel laureate Mo Yan.

In the production, Ye plays the role of Jiu Er, which was portrayed by Gong Li in the 1988 film adaptation, and by Zhou Xun in the 2014 TV series Red Shorgum.

At the hospital, Ye was informed by the doctor that her wound was two-centimetre deep.

“He was very meticulous and stitched three layers of my skin," shared Ye who has starred in TVB series such as Eternal Happiness and Triumph In The Skies.

According to the report, the stitches were to be removed after five days. However, the actress was advised against doing any “vigorous activities” as it will cause “the subcutaneous tissues to rip open again”.

On whether Ye would end up with a scar on her face, the doctor apparently told her that “straining the wound in the next three months will have a dire impact on whether or not it leaves a scar".
