Cecilia Liu fulfills high school dream in new drama
According to Epoch Times, the actress, who appeared at the press conference promoting the new drama recently, stated that she was unable to attend a normal high school during her teenage years, and thus playing a high school student helped her understand how it would have felt like being one.
"I was accepted to a Beijing art school and then straight into Beijing Dance Academy. During those days, I spent my whole time with ballet training, working early in the morning, went to school, working late, and return to campus," she said.
Cecilia also stated that the academy had a strict rule when it came to time management.
"If you're given 15 minutes to write, it means 15 minutes. If you want to see the doctor for an hour, an hour is just the time given to you," she said.
In "The Years of Our Lives", Cecilia plays the role of a girl named Ting who reunited with her high school love, Xiaojun - who is determined to rekindle their romance. The drama also stars Ryan Zheng and Chao Weiyu.
