Taiwan actress Tian Xin smitten by Christopher Lee

She is 38, sexy, and thinks that local actor Christopher Lee is the perfect man.

It is something you might expect Taiwanese actress Tian Xin to say of her co-star Lee, 42, who acts as her loving husband in their new drama, A Good Wife.

But her enthusiasm was infectious.

In a phone interview from Taiwan, Tian - who is single - gushed about Lee endlessly, saying in Mandarin: "I was so smitten with him. He is very charming, very mature and very caring on set. In short, he is the perfect man."

Referring to him affectionately as "Ah Shun Zai", a play on his Chinese name Lee Meng Soon, she added: "His acting is very good, and he makes me feel comfortable around him. I think every woman would fall for him after knowing him."

In A Good Wife, Tian acts as dutiful and meticulous wife Yi Zhen, who has been in a loving marriage with hubby Lee Shao Wen (Lee) for seven years. The monotonous relationship takes its toll and Yi Zhen leaves Shao Wen for another man.

The show is airing on E City (StarHub TV Channel 111/825) every Tuesday to Thursday at 10pm.

When The New Paper contacted Lee on Monday, he was pleasantly surprised with Tian's praises.

"I am very honoured and happy to hear this. We spent quite a lot of time working together in the drama, and we had a great time," he said.

"We have similar working styles and we are both quite straightforward, so we click. The atmosphere on set was very fun and lively."
