What better way to have some good ol’ sibling bonding than to star in a drama together, right?
It’s been three years since the hit drama Nothing Gold Can Stay aired and ratings queen Sun Li is back on primetime with I Will Find You a Better Home. Her return to the small screens was made even more personal for the actress because she was able to share it with her younger sister Sun Yan who portrays her character’s younger version in the drama.
No one’s going to blame you if you did a double-take on the word sister since many don’t of the newcomer, yet Sun Li is obviously the proud big sis when she wrote in a recent post: ‘When I read the script and saw that we needed someone to play Fang Sijin in her youth, I thought who else can be better as my younger version? It has to be my little sister Sun Yan!’
Wouldn’t you agree that the resemblance is uncanny? Sun Li’s parents divorced in 1995 and Sun Yan was born after the actress’ father remarried. Ah, it must be nice to have a versatile actress for a sister. You can easily ask for tips and have someone run lines with you but I guess it can also be nerve-racking with all the pressure and expectations people will have. If she decides to follow her sister’s path and stick to showbiz, I hope that netizens won’t be too hard on her.
