Katie Leung shuns manicures for theatre role

May 17, 2012 | 7:15am EDT

The British actress landed the role of Jung Chang in a stage version of the book Wild Swans, in which Chang details her family's life under a sparse Chinese regime.

To give her performance maximum authenticity, Leung agreed to forgo Western luxuries and spa treatments - and she celebrated the end of her run in the show with a manicure on Thursday (17May12).

Taking to her blog, the actress posted a photo of her newly-polished nails alongside the message, "Applying nail polish after 5 months of living under communist regime feels very strange... And a nude colour at that. We are so privileged it's insane how much one still whines. Now let's all MAN UP and apply some nail polish!"
