- We can order this
In this fascinating study, Mark Gallagher explores the dynamics of media stardom in Hong Kong, mainland China and the East Asian region. This includes the importance of television series for training and promotion; the phenomenon of regional, transmedia stardom across popular entertainment genres; and cultural and political considerations as performers move among different Asian production environments. Attentive to Leung's positions in both East Asian and global screen cultures, this book illuminates challenges and opportunities for Chinese screen actors in local, regional and global contexts.
This unique study is an ideal resource for undergraduate students of Film and Media Studies taking courses in Chinese Cinema, Asian Cinema, or Transnational cinema, as well as anyone with an interest in Tony Leung-Chiu Wai's prolific career.
