Actress Jesseca Liu, already willowy and lithe, still managed to find an extra 7kg somewhere on her body to lose for her role in Channel U romance drama Marry Me. Her character, Rainbow Ang, is a maneater and a femme fatale who is never shy to show some skin.Liu, who stands at 1.72m, was 54kg when filming started. She reveals that she had to lose weight in order for her to feel confident enough about her body to flaunt it the way Rainbow would, in a bikini while playing beach volleyball."I had to keep to a strict diet. I ate less and didn't eat after 7pm. I drank fruit juice in the morning, ate fish soup for lunch and didn't eat starchy foods," says the locally based, Langkawi-born actress.She adds that she often felt "very hungry" during the course of her diet and also felt cold during filming.Read the full story in The Straits Times Online
