Ris Low's toughest challenge in new movie was rape scene

13 September 2013 / 3 years 1 month ago

Ris Low may have fallen off the radar in the past couple of years, but her showbiz comeback is just around the corner – this time on the big screen.

The Straits Times reported that the local 23-year-old dethroned beauty queen plays the lead in new local slasher flick Justice Devil, which will open here on Sept 26.

The 100-minute Mandarin movie, produced by Lion City Film Studio and directed by local film-maker Harva, is rated NC16 and slated to be shown on 15 screens under Shaw cinemas.

How about Low’s debut outing as a leading lady? Harva said, “She was very convincing. Her character went through many emotional ups and downs and she handled them all really well,” said Harva.

He added that Low’s “toughest challenge” was a scene in which her character was raped by one of the thugs. “Ris was extremely professional, that scene was completed in two takes.” The film has no nudity, he stressed.

Equally excited about her big-screen debut is Low, who has been working as a waitress at T-ARA Cosplay Bar & Cafe since April.

She posted the trailer on her Facebook wall, along with a short note: “One year of hard work and patience, piecing bits and pieces together, and finally into a movie... Our work. Our pride and joy.”
