The Golden Horse Award-winning actress Zhou Dongyu, recently promoted her new fantasy movie 'A Nail Clippers Romance' in Beijing.
Dongyu appears quite relaxed when being compared to veteran Chinese actress Zhou Xun, who played the same role in an earlier movie.
"There was a similar short film starring Zhou Xun. Actually I feel lucky to have such a connection with her since I'm a fan of her movies."
Zhou Dongyu plays the role of Emily, a young woman who is actually a "nail clipper monster" – a special species of human that only eats nail clippers.
