Tang Wei looks for chemistry with people on film set


(AP) — Chinese actress Tang Wei is not obsessed about finding the right role for her future film project.

For the “Lust, Caution” star, it is the people she works with on a film set and the chemistry with them that counts.

Tang shot into an international fame with her role in Ang Lee’s 2007 spy thriller.

Asked about the roles she wants to play in the future, Tang said Saturday her job is not about the role but about the people and the conversations with them.

This year’s Busan International Film Festival is screening three movies featuring Tang, including Johnnie To’s musical “Office,” where she plays a hard-working office lady.

She said filming “Office” with veteran Asian screen stars Sylvia Chang and Chow Yun-fat made her feel like a rookie.
