Jerry Yan (言承旭) is becoming increasingly famous for his anal-retentive personality.
The actor is a perfectionist who gets very sensitive around cameras and tries to control everything.
He gets super pissed off if fellow actors’ assistants try to take photos or videotape the scenes on set.
As he sets high standards of himself, he is also equally demanding of others.
Often, sources say, he is in such a bad mood that he will punch the wall with his fists and can easily lose a lot of weight when he is under pressure.
The 35-year-old is currently shooting the martial arts film Hua Yang (花漾) and plays the role of a pirate.
Often injured, Jerry was once so depressed that he hid in the car for 20 minutes, refusing to talk to anyone.
For another take, he had to wake up fellow actress Ivy Chen (陳意涵). Although he did not have to be on camera, he lost it, broke down, yelled and screamed, frightening everyone.
May Daily: Dear Jerry, it’s only a job.
