《緝魂》系列報導 專訪張震 / A dive into ‘The Soul’ with Chang Chen

當一部電影挾帶著強大的氣勢,總會不免俗地會讓人用放大鏡檢視電影裡的任何一個鏡頭,角色的一舉一動,甚至一句台詞都容易成為大家討論的焦點。因此,不管是單純的創作,還是背後行銷的方法,都是導致電影是否成為雋永人心的關鍵。

睽違兩年,張震伴隨著在《緝魂》中飾演的梁文超檢察官重回大螢幕,並將精湛的演技展現給所有觀眾。在故事的設定下,張震飾演的梁文超是位癌末病患,因此在身形上的劇烈轉變便成為這位極具經驗的演員的一大挑戰。

張震飾演的梁文超,是 2000年9月18日出生的處女座。這個角色不僅擁有處女座天生具有正義感的特質,也因為擔任檢察官的角色,這個角色的「正義感」更因此地被放大。「對我來說,檢察官就是正義的化身,而我心中也一直存在正義感。」張震接著說:「而且這個角色是癌末病患,所以對生病的這個過程,我自己沒有太多的了解,因此對我來說是一個很大的挑戰。」

「要把工作做好,就要付出」-張震

14歲就出道的張震演出過無數的作品,他精湛的演技加上他獨特的魅力,都讓張震在《緝魂》中精準的呈現出導演程偉豪心中擁有亦正亦邪氣質的梁文超。為了呈現癌末病患的體態,張震花了三個月的時間减重12公斤。這個極端的身體變化,不僅讓張震在拍攝時免疫力下降,更在心理上產生容易暴躁的情緒。但張震表示:「要把工作做好,就要付出」。

開拍前,除了要將生理狀態符合梁文超,這個角色心理的改變對張震而言才是比較重要的。「我用了很多切入點來看待這個角色,開拍前我也跟導演做了許多討論,例如這個角色的個性是溫暖的個性,還是本身就給人暗黑的氣質。但畢竟《緝魂》是一部推理電影,所以角色呈現的心理狀態會導致他判斷的決策產生重大的影響。」


「我不是一位喜歡紙上談兵的人」-張震

對張震而言,事前溝通固然重要,但是真正在鏡頭前演出來才能發揮事前溝通的功用。「其實我不是一位喜歡紙上談兵的人,我會選擇先演給你看。讓導演可以選擇要或不要這樣子的表現方式。」透過這樣子的手法,張震為角色開創出了無限的可能性,而將檢察官演出暖男的個性,對他而言更是給導演的一個驚喜。「其實我第一天開工時就是拍第一場戲,這個時候就已經為這個角色定調,所以對我來說是一個好玩的開始。而且在做這份工作時,不管是對導演、演員,還是工作人員也好,我覺得那種不可預期的事情多一點,那種踩在邊緣的感覺蠻過癮的,我蠻享受這樣的感覺。」


「我是因為程偉豪導演接了這部電影。」-張震

與過去張震演出過的角色相比,梁文超這個角色不僅要演出癌末病患的病態感,還要在短時間內的改變身體狀態,對張震來說是演這位檢察官是一個很大的挑戰,但為什麼仍會接下這份工作呢?「我接這個電影其中一個原因是因為程偉豪導演,因為他的作品有他非常獨特的電影語言跟風格。」而隨著華語片重新崛起,問到張震會不會擔心被拿來與其他男演員比較,他說:「我是屬於跟自己比較的類型,因為演員這個工作對我來說,滿足自己是最重要的事情。」

「花10分鐘曬太陽也能體會自己生活的快樂」-張震

隨著電影上映,忙碌的宣傳工作緊接而來,如何在工作與生活上取得平衡?張震說:「我的想法蠻簡單的,有工作做,讓自己忙一忙,咬著牙做完就可以了。不過像12月的台北,下了一整個月的雨只有三四天出太陽,但如果我想曬太陽,那我花個10分鐘好好曬太陽,那麼我在這10分鐘內也可以體會到自己生活的快樂。」



When a movie carries a strong momentum, people will inevitably examine or criticise in every detail. Every action of the character and even a line can easily become the focus of discussion.


Two years later, Chang Chen finally returned to us with his new film 'The Soul'. In this film, Chang Chen's role is Liang Wen-Chao, a cancer patient at the terminal stage. Hence, drastically change his body shape becomes a major challenge for this experienced actor.


Liang Wen-Chao, a Virgo born on September 18, 2000, and 'Justice' are Virgo qualities. Not only that, but this role is also a prosector, therefore, 'Sense of Justice' has amplified to this special man. Chang Chen said: "For me, the prosecutor is the incarnation of justice, and I have always had a sense of justice in my heart. And this role is a cancer patient at the terminal stage, so for presenting the process of getting ill is a big challenge for me."


"If you want to do a great job, you must put more effort into it."-Chang Chen

Chang Chen, who debuted at the age of 14, has performed countless works. His natural acting skills and charm have allowed him to accurately the director Cheng Wei-Hao's image of the role in 'The Soul'. This award-winning actor spent three months losing 12 kilograms due to his role has to look significantly illness. This extreme physical change caused Chang Chen's immunity system to decrease badly and caused his emotional irritability psychologically. But Chang Chen said: "If you want to do a great job, you must put more effort into it."

Before shooting 'The Soul', Chang Chen not just put effort into his physical status but mentally act like Liang Wen-Chao is the most important thing. "I used many different ways to look at this character. I also had a lot of discussions with the director before filming. For example, after all, it is a crime and suspense film, so the psychological state of the character will cause his judgment method to produce significant influences."


"I am not a person who likes to talk big but do nothing"-Chang Chen

For Chang Chen, communication is important, but it has to present in front of the camera afterwards. "I am not a person who likes to talk big but do nothing. I will show you how I do it for the first time and let the director decide whether he wants it."


Chang Chen created different faces for his role, and the prosecutor eventually is a man with a warm heart. He mentioned "This a surprise I gave to the director because his personality is even more affable. Besides, the first day of shooting was to take the first scene. Hence, we have no chance to pull out at this time, so it was a fun start for me. When I am doing this job, whether for the director, the actors, or the staff, I think it will be more enjoyable if there are more unpredictable things. Like the feeling of stepping on the edge. I quite enjoy this feeling."


"Because of Director Cheng Wei-Hao, I accepted to do this film." -Chang Chen

Compared with Chang Chen's role in the past, the role in 'The Soul' not only has to perform the morbidity of the terminal cancer patient but needs to change his physical condition in a short period. It is a big challenge for Chang Chen to address this character. However, why he still took this job? "One of the reasons I took this film is because of the director Cheng Wei-Hao. His work has a unique film language and style." And through Taiwanese films are coming back, we ask Chang Chen if he would worry about being compared with other actors. He said: "I am the kind that only compared with myself because the job of being an actor, for me, is to satisfy myself."


"You can feel the happiness by just spending 10 minutes in the sun"-Chang Chen

With the film's release, busy publicity work immediately follows, how can he balance work and life? Chang Chen said, "It is quite simple. I have a job to do. I only need to work it out and finish it. But if I want to take a rest or experience my own time, then I just spent 10 minutes in the sun, and I also can feel the happiness of my."
