Women Fitness President Ms. Namita Nayyar catches up with Mayling Ng, exceptionally talented martial arts expert and actress,Here she talks about her workout, diet, beauty secrets and her journey as an action film star.
You were born in the UK being of Chinese-Singaporean-European descent, you spent your early years in the Canary Islands Tenerife before moving to Singapore and eventually to Los Angeles. You played strong warrior characters and did your own action scenes. Your credits include “Wonder Woman”“Lady Bloodfight,” and “The Scorpion King: Book of Souls,” This later propelled your career to the height where you have been at the top of the world as an action star. Tell us more about your professional journey of exceptionally hard work, tenacity, and endurance?
I started my acting career working in Hong Kong martial arts movies, which helped open doors and into comic book and superhero movies here in Hollywood. So, it’s a Hong Kong to Hollywood story. I’ve had many career experiences ranging from owning restaurants to personal training, but six years ago I moved to LA decided to focus on my acting career and went all in for my dream to work in the film industry. Thankfully, I’ve been very fortunate to have been working consistently and I’m only just starting to establish myself.
You moved from the UK, Singapore to different parts of the world and finally to the US for your professional career. For an actress adjusting to new places with their own cultures it must be difficult and then to adjust with the acting career in a new location, what advice can you give to fellow actresses in a similar situation?
To be honest, it wasn’t hard to adjust because I’ve always been a nomad. I moved when I was a kid to Tenerife. Then I was often flying between Singapore, Tenerife, and England on my own from age 13,.so it’s a way of life for me. It’s always been my decision and choice where to live but I think I’ve found my forever home since I moved to LA in 2016 where I have become more settled both physically and spiritually.
