Special Interview: Ye Yuan, the hero of Forever

Reporter: When did you come across this story?

Ye Yuan: I received the script in the spring of 2008. When I finished reading it, it was one or two o’clock in the morning, but I couldn’t stop thinking about it, so I read it again. I remember I read it three times that night. I was really moved by my character’s kindness, and, more importantly, his selfless generosity. Yongcheng’s story is actually inspired from a real person, Zhigang Zuo. I heard about him a long time ago. I felt that although I never suffered as much as he did, and I am younger and more inexperienced than he was, there is common ground between us. We both believe in truthfulness, compassion and tolerance. So even though there were great challenges in playing this role, I was confident, because my heart could connect with it. read more

This was a name familiar to me, since I had seen it on a Falun Gong practitioner’s exhibition board many times. What did he experience that made his life worthy of a movie? With this question, I found a lot of articles about him on www.minghui.ca. This time, my tears welled up like a spring. read more
