Wei made her debut in the Ang Lee film, which attracted controversy last year, and China’s State Administration of Radio, Film and Television recently told local TV stations to stop screening commercials starring Wei, including a skin-care advertisement.
And after collecting the Best Actor Award at the Asian Film Awards in Hong Kong on Monday, Leung, who played Wei‘s lover in the film, said, “I think the (Chinese) film authority understands an actor’s place. Our work is only to express our roles, and I don’t think that an actor should be blacklisted because of this.
“If a film has problems, then the whole (movie) crew should have a responsibility. We are a team and not an individual, and I’m a part of this team.”
