I am kind of dreading seeing myself on the big screen. I think I look weird and I think I’m not a very convincing pregnant teacher. But I can’t deny being somewhat excited because it’s going to be the first time I get to watch myself in the cinema.
I’m talking about I Not Stupid Too, the new Jack Neo movie that’s supposed to hit the screens this month.
Some weeks ago, I was called back to do a voiceover for a scene that had already been shot. Jack was there to supervise the recording and the first thing he said to me when he saw me was: “哇!原来你这么年青的啊!” (Loosely translated: “Didn’t know you were so young”.)
Haha. That was hilarious. I guess it was the dressing.
Because he was so used to seeing me bespectacled and pregnant like in picture 1, I think he was surprised when I turned up at the recording studio looking like picture 2.
The recording session was fun. Not only did I have to dub over my own voice for a couple of my scenes, I also helped to voice a nurse and a phone recording.
There’s this scene where an actor is trying to call someone and he gets this message: “We are not getting a response from the subscriber’s mobile phone. Please try again later.”
That’s MY VOICE.
Hahaha. Listen out for it when you watch the movie.
I love Jack Neo movies. I’ve seen every single one of them and it’s a great honour being in one of them. So, now that he knows how “young” I am, I hope he casts me in a younger and… er… not so pregnant role next time! =)
