Sharing the same title as Tsui Hark’s movie, the series ‘Flying Swords of Dragon Gate’ is currently filming rapidly, a series version of the classic work. This time around, the Dragon Gate Inn’s innkeeper ‘Jin Xiangyu’ is played by Michelle Ye. Recently, media first exposed Michelle Ye’s image in the series, she is at times a tough warrior, at times a tender one, causing the audience to anticipate much of Michelle Ye’s version of Jin Xiangyu.
Dragon Gate elements deeply rooted in heart, accepted acting role even before reading script
Michelle Ye loved reading Wuxia novels when she was young, from Gu Long to Jin Yong, she has read each and every one of their works, keeping the plots and characters deep in her heart. Her love for Wuxia works causes her to have much fate with female warriors (characters), especially after watching a series of Dragon Gate’s works, she is deeply mesmerized in the story. The coquettish innkeeper Jin Xiangyu especially drew Michelle’s attention. She recalled saying: “I felt that this woman is just too seductive and fascinating, her whole face tells a movie.” Coincidentally the producer of ‘Dragon Gate’ is Michelle Ye’s collaboration partner for years, and when he proposed her playing ‘Jin Xiangyu’, Michelle Ye accepted the role even before reading the script.
