EFFIE インミャオ

Effie




by Sherif Awad
She is a Chinese-Japanese artist/model/actress
who was born in Beijing and currently is based in her hometown Tokyo. Effie was
an only child because only one child was allowed in China for my generation.
“When I was child, I dreamt of
becoming an actress”, remembers Effie who used to watch movies and TV dramas in
her teens. This was including ethics, costume dramas, suspense, science
fiction, ghost films and action films. “At that time, I imagined the scene of
myself appearing on the silver screen and being the main star of the scene, I
was watching”, laughs Effie who years later succeeded to land her first job
before the camera after her girlfriend, who was a model, asked her to join her
during a photo-shooting.  
“When I was cast in a TV role, I
stood in front of the camera and felt that everything was ready and everybody was
waiting for my performance. I felt that I found my own stage… Everything was so
natural like breathing.  It seems like it
was not the first time in my life…”, explained Effie about her own feeling at
the TV studio. “I didn’t learn from any school. Yet the experience that I bring
to me through every live performance. From extra role to leading role, I’ve learned
from directors ,from crew members, from my agency and most of all from my past
mistakes”.

According to Effie, the silver
screen performance is different from the stage performance because one can’t
get feedback from the audience at that time. “Even if you only in front of the
camera, you should consider the feelings of the audience behind the silver
screen”, she adds. “keeping serious to play every scene even if some just
shooting your back! Just don’t push yourself to much… It is best to live in the
story as naturally as possible”.
Effie is very grateful for having
so many opportunities in a short time. “In the future, I would like to go to
the world and try to cooperate with its creators of the world”, she hopes. “However,
as an actress, age may be the biggest challenge because the choice of
characters may become narrower… But this is only a trend.  As long as you are unique, there is no
shortage of choices from people around the world.  For the profession, sometimes things not work
every day. In the rest time, you need to enrich yourself for the next
challenge. For example, learning a new language, acquiring a new skill, understanding
other areas or at least making”.
About Japanese entertainment industry,
Effie notes that the strength of Japanese film and television art lies in
focusing on one area and describing it in great detail.  For example, TV dramas at the medical scene, Japanese
suspense, ethics, and Japanese style ghost films are also unique.  Of course, Japanese animations are very
strong in the world. Films like The Third Murder (12.38 million dollars), Kingdom  (50 million dollars), Weathering With You (40
million)… Japanese movies are gradually expanding their position in the world.
Effie is now finishing a
Hollywood short film and will fly to Toronto to play the leading rule of a drama
series.
