Angelababy (楊穎) joins the industry for many years and her acting skills is perceived average until now. When mentioned about working with her in period drama, General and I (孤芳不自賞) but Angelababy’s acting skills showed no improvements during an interview with Chinese media, Liu Tianchi (劉天池) said: “I am not trying to push the responsibility and it really depends on individual. We could only use different methods to teach and become an artiste. You need to use those tools to transform into that “person” which is the “role”.

Tianchi believed playing the role well did not depend on acting skills only but the ability and alertness as well: “It resembles to playing piano and having passion is very important. In China, we have Lang Lang (郎朗) and Li Yundi (李雲迪) only. One cannot become an outstanding actor simply after learning from the instructor and definitely needs to undergo lots of trainings.”

In addition, Tianchi joins the industry for 20 years and teaches Deng Chao (鄧超), Bai Baihe (白百何), Wen Zhang (文章), Tiffany Tang (唐嫣) and other students. Although her remarks make some Angelababy’s fans unhappy, but many netizens agree with her.
