If there is one thing Ang Lee wants for 12-year-old Best Actress winner Audrey Lin, that would be for the young starlet to focus on her studies for the time being.
As reported on Oriental Daily, the filmmaker, who is also the chairman of the jury for this year’s Golden Horse Awards, recently shared with the media about how they selected the winners, revealing that Audrey had already won the jury’s heart in the first round of selection.
“She really is a genius, but I hope that she will film fewer movies in the future and focus on her studies. [Qin Dynasty’s] Gan Luo became the Minister at the age of 12 but unfortunately died young,” he said.
Ang added that Audrey’s performance was the best this time, and that he hopes her growth and development will be sound in the future. He also stressed that her acting skills do not need to be honed too early, and that she has a lot of time to do so.
Audrey became the youngest actress to win the accolade of Best Actress at the recently held Golden Horse Awards, surpassing Li Xiaolu, who previously won at the age of 16.
