Actress Vivian Hsu will soon start work on the new Taiwanese movie Seediq Bale, directed by Wei Te Sheng, who also directed last year’s Cape No 7.

Vivian plays the lead role in the movie that portrays the Wushe Incident, a 1930 Seediq uprising led by Mona Rudao against the Japanese when Taiwan was colonised.

The Seediq are Taiwanese aboriginal people who, along with the Truku people, were previously classified as the Atayal tribe.

She said: “I won’t be speaking any Mandarin in the movie at all. Instead, I would have to speak Japanese and Seediq.”

The movie is due to film for half a year and will be completed in 2011.

It is budgeted at $21 million.

How is Vivian Hsu supposed to be an aboriginal Taiwanese? A-Mei Chang is aboriginal Taiwanese and Vivian Hsu looks nothing like that.

Minor point as I'm still excited about anything she is in.

And that link has given me a new favorite website! LOL!

Many sites, including Chinese Wiki indicate that Vivian's mother is Atayal.

Not sure what this is, fan fiction maybe but the bio is detailed

For prurient fun

Oddly, A-mei and Vivian strike me as having some resemblance.
