It’s hard to believe two decades have passed since the TVB classic Gods of Honour 封神榜 first aired. Chinese actress Michelle Ye who played Yeung Lin Fa in the series was only 21-years-old when they shot the xianxia. And now, twenty years later … she looks just as good!
The 42-year-old actress who also starred in Royal Swordsmen 天下第一 recently popped up a clip of herself trying out cute poses on Douyin.“Every time I look like I’m pretending to be childish, the truth is, I’m actually really childish. People who have been spoiled since childhood seem to be like this” she captioned. Maybe being carefree and silly is her secret to looking like she hardly aged at all?
A couple of weeks ago, her co-star Winnie Young’s Gods of Honour tribute on social media had us all feeling a wee bit nostalgic. With the throwback vibes both actresses have been serving, perhaps it’s time for another Gods of Honour revisit.
Michelle Ye got her start in the entertainment industry thanks to the folks over at TVB. After winning Miss Chinese International which the network organised back in 1999, she landed an exclusive contract with them after graduating university. Thus began her decades long career in showbiz. In 2006, after her contract with the network expired, Michelle continued to be active in the industry, trying on different hats and learning new skills. She’d been a producer, a screenwriter and even opened her own production company.
She’s one of my favorite actress back then. I feel like back then China and Hong Kong’s dramas were much better than nowadays. I can’t finish any current dramas
Never liked her then, still don’t like her now. Her acting is so so. Nothing wow about.
I always thought she had kind of a timeless classic beauty, but found her voice so whiny and annoying when she was acting. She was a bit over the top in dramas, but I still found her more acceptable than a lot of the other pageant winners when they first started out like Sonia Kwok or Anne Heung. I haven’t seen any of her dramas after she left TVB, so maybe she’s improved quite a bit. Not like TVB gives people any real training.
When I look back at the photos, I feel like time has passed so fast
