Ouyang Nana wings from Jackie Chan role to Disney album
    2017-September-6  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

欧阳娜娜:在电影和音乐中自由切换的人生

Ouyang Nana may be the new “it girl,” with a starring role in the next Jackie Chan movie, but she’s returning to her roots and first love: cello.

The 17-year-old actress just released her second cello album, “Cello Loves Disney,” where she plays all the classic hits from her favorite fairy tales. Ouyang said that it was a dream come true to record the songs she loves and knows by heart, including “Tale As Old As Time” from “Beauty and the Beast.”

Ouyang, from Taiwan, was born into a family of entertainers. Her aunt, Ouyang Feifei, was a famous singer in Taiwan in the 1970s. Both her parents acted in television in Taiwan.

Ouyang was trained to become a classic cellist. She plays cello for six hours every day, and has done it since she was 6. That dedication enabled her to make a solo debut in Taipei when she was just 12.

One year later, one of the most famous music schools in the world, The Curtis Institute of Music in the United States, offered Ouyang a full scholarship. She accepted, but after two years at the institution that trained the likes of pianist Lang Lang, she decided to suspend her studies to pursue one of her other passions: acting.

In the past five years, Ouyang has starred in four films and one TV series. Her role in the 2014 film “Beijing Love Story” jump-started her acting career. At 15, she was a guest of Chanel at its Paris fashion show, taking selfies with Karl Lagerfeld backstage. She just released “Secret Fruit,” a coming-of-age love story, in China.

Next, Ouyang will be playing Jackie Chan’s daughter in his new action sci-fi film “Bleeding Steel,” scheduled for release in China in December. She said the action star has shared with her words of wisdom that she has taken to heart.

The on-screen father/daughter duo had such a wonderful connection they decided to extend it to Ouyang’s cello album. Chan and Ouyang sing a Mandarin version of “A Whole New World” as a bonus track on the album.

So how does Ouyang manage to balance intense filming schedules with her cello commitments? “I carry my cello everywhere I go to, filming or whatever,” she said. “My life would not be complete without my cello.”

Ouyang said she is not ruling out going back to school one day, but doesn’t wish to be a normal 17-year-old. “I chose this life. I want to be an actress, I want to be a cellist,” she said. “So I have to learn to accept all the things like paparazzi, and the reporters ... or cyberbullies. These things I have to learn.”
