But there's also an evil look to her. In fact, where do you think the title of the book comes from? Killer Eyes? That would be her, of course. Her eyes, that is. So if Killer Eyes were to be made into a movie, which actress would be perfect for the part of Ming Sang?
So who else is there? Well, I saw another beautiful Chinese actress who could pull it off. Gong Li. And this picture here is a great shot of how well she can play a villain. No, Ming Sang doesn't smoke cigarettes, but there's no questioning the devious look in those eyes in this picture. She would be great for the part of Ming Sang. But wait, there's the same problem with her that there is with Lucy Liu. And that's her age. She's even older than Lucy Liu! Gong Li will be fifty years old next year! Again, that doesn't bode well for being cast in a movie some years from now. So that means I better keep looking.
Searching through the Internet for beautiful Chinese actresses isn't as easy as it sounds. Well, there's no problem when it comes to finding beautiful actresses, but the problem is they look too innocent, too sweet, too dainty or too nice. Remember Ming Sang exudes evil. She's not very nice at all. But at the same time, she is very beautiful. Her beauty is almost mesmerizing, even, and the evil in her eyes is not something that is hidden, or something that is only evident in certain situations. No. The evil in her eyes is up front. It's obvious, and it's something that is noticed right away.
So for that reason, finding a Chinese actress to play the part of Ming Sang is not an easy feat. I did find this actress. Her name is Chen Shu. And she might be able to play an evil type. Her age is another problem, though. She's already 38. And the years go by fast. She'll be in her forties before you know it. An actress for the role of Ming Sang should be no older than what Chen Shu is right now. So there you go. The search goes on.
Which brings me to Sun Li. She's 31 right now. And again, the actress who plays Ming Sang shouldn't be much older than that. But at least that gives her some more time than the girls above. And her eyes? They could be made into Killer Eyes all right. See for yourself. I would have no problem with Sun Li being cast for the part of Ming Sang. Nope. None at all.
