Steven Ma not into pure righteous roles anymore
read enlarged news article
Steven says he will only accept two kinds of roles - the gray/villain role or comedic role. But he also doesn't want to be a pure evil villain but a villain imbued with human traits. Steven plans to direct a movie inspired by his mother. He knows he wants to direct this movie but his dilemma lies in whether he should just concentrate on being a director and forgo the acting part or that he should wear both caps as a director and as an actor too because he wishes to act in his mother's story. He said he has already chosen the perfect actress to portray his mother. (He once said he hope to persuade Fung Bo Bo to accept the role of his mother.)
Steven: Frankly if I were to portray an absolute good guy, I wouldn't have returned. Not would not return but rather would have declined the series. You want me to portray an absolute righteous character, I don't know how to do it. I can't portray that totally upright person anymore. (Can't do those pure and innocent characters anymore?) Forget it,how old am I now, still want me to be pure and innocent, naive and romantic? I can't do it anymore.
Narrator: Steven has opened a production studio in Beijing last year (si Jan 1 2014) . He is going to release a music album including a duet with Fala Chen. So when his rumored girlfriend, Vivian, was mentioned ..
Steven: You know what is the worst thing for a man? The worst thing for a man is that only after marriage then he thinks of developing his career. It's very problematic because of worries. (Can do it together) Of course, need to get everything settled first with planning. (What if had to plan until you're fifty years old?) Bite your tongue, shouldn't take that long ba?
TN: I hope Steven won't regret putting career over marriage. Both he and Vivian are not getting any younger. Like Fala has vocally said, Steven is way too chow chew male chauvinistic in his approach to marriage.
