Veteran actress Xiang Yun got emotional in the Mediacorp series #JustSwipeLah as she watched her colleagues say kind and touching things about her.
The 57-year-old had to dab her eyes with tissue paper as fellow celebrities Elvin Ng, Felicia Chin, Jeffrey Xu, Pierre Png, Zhang Yaodong and Romeo Tan sent messages of admiration and support to celebrate the veteran actress’ 40th anniversary in showbusiness.
Elvin said that the actress commands “respect and admiration” at every stage of her career and that she is “really great”, while Felicia said she respected Xiang Yun’s “drive and professionalism”.
Jeffrey described Xiang Yun as “my older sister, mum and my colleague”, adding that she “will always be our Ah Jie”. He also thanked her for everything she has sacrificed for the industry.
His message caused the actress to respond with: “Aiyo, why are you making me cry every time? I can’t stand it”.
She later thanked all her colleagues for recording the messages for her. "They probably don't know how much strength they have given me right now," she said.
Xiang Yun also shared that her most memorable screen partner was the late Huang Wenyong. She related that they got close while filming the 1984 classic drama, The Awakening, as they would “film for six to seven days without sleep”.
"I'll never forget him because we went through many hardships together. In life, to have someone who shares the same frequency as you, that's very rare," she said.
