In CCTV's "My Favorite Spring Festival Gala Programs" selection, Liu Qian's magic trick "A Thousand Changes" won the first place in the category of performing arts. Liu Qian, who made a wonderful appearance at the CCTV Lantern Festival Gala again, also interacted with Zhao Benshan and Song Zuying to bring us another close-up magic. Attentive audience may find that Liu Qian on stage will often take a black flannel to wipe the sweat on his hands, the "Prince of Magic" in the magic outside the life is how? The reporter recently conducted an exclusive interview with Liu Qian.
Nervous enough to have nightmares.
From 2009, the young man named Liu Qian came into our vision through the CCTV Spring Festival Gala, and his exquisite magic performance promoted the art of magic to the public again, and for a while, magic fever swept around us.
As the saying goes, "one minute on the stage, ten years of work off the stage", compared with other actors, Liu Qian, who showed close-up magic in the live broadcast of the Spring Festival Gala, was under the greatest pressure. I remember when Dong Qing was interviewed by Art Life, she revealed that Liu Qian was always very nervous every time when he was approaching the moment of performance, so much so that when he performed the program at the Spring Festival Gala in 2009, his palms appeared dense beads of sweat, which was regarded by the sharp-eyed viewers as "smeared with oil". In this year's Spring Festival Gala program performance, the attentive audience also found Liu Qian with a black flannel wiped his palms several times.
Liu Qian said to the reporter: "In fact, every time I conduct a live performance, I will go all out, do not dare to take it lightly, so it is always very nervous, and a lot of sweat will emerge from the palms of my hands when I am nervous. "So much pressure, the program before the performance will not be able to sleep? Liu Qian said: "Can't sleep not so much, but often dream of their magic show failure, and wake up very happy, it turned out to be just dreaming. This may be the reason for high mental tension, dreams are usually people's subconscious mind. "
I'm not used to the Spring Festival effect.
Reporter: Performing in the Spring Festival Gala has brought about a considerable change in your life, have you adapted to this change?
Liu Qian: Honestly, I'm not quite used to it until now. I think the biggest change is that it made me realize that it is not enough to do magic in this industry, there are many things that we have to take into account, such as communication with the public, interaction with some media, and interaction with fans, which is something that I haven't thought about before, either not, or not so focused. This year, we will realize that besides studying the performance, a lot of things (outside the performance) are still important.
Reporter: What kind of stage do you think the Spring Festival Gala is in your eyes?
Liu Qian: It is a feeling of returning home, returning home may be a bit too exaggerated, a bit like a return to belong to their own team feeling. Because back to this side, there are a lot of people and things are very familiar, feel especially warm.
Reporter: Do you feel that the Spring Festival Gala has given you a very important platform to success?
Liu Qian: The result is indeed like this. But in my mind I didn't think that much, I just wanted to say put on a good show, that's the most important thing.
Reporter: Will you keep going to the Spring Festival Gala? Next year and the year after that, you are still invited to the Spring Festival Gala, will you always participate?
Liu Qian: If the audience likes to see me, I'm certainly fine with myself.
Reporter: I'd like to ask you about the first time you participated in the Spring Festival Gala, that is, last year's New Year's Eve when you went home after performing the program, about what time was it?
Liu Qian: The first day of the year.
Reporter: What was going through your mind at that time? Because after performing the program you left, didn't you have different feelings from the performers of other programs?
Liu Qian: The first one is more regrettable, because there is no way to reunite with the family, usually New Year's Eve should be the time to reunite with the family, and it would be more regrettable not to do so, so I would like to go home quickly and eat hot pot with my family, so I was relieved after the end of the show. Because of the rehearsal, I stayed in Beijing for two weeks, so I was quite homesick and wanted to go back to be with my family.
Should keep the magic mysterious
Reporter: Over the past year, you have participated in many variety shows and demonstrated a lot of magic tricks, will there be a sense of "exhaustion" or "acting vomit"?
Liu Qian: No. In fact, this is an illusion, because last year a whole year, I did not participate in a lot of programs, I just participated in a program. People think that I often appear on TV because I am constantly being replayed, that is, the programs I did in the past, a few years ago have been replayed, so people will think that I seem to be on the program all the time, but in fact, I only did one program last year.
Reporter: I saw a report that Andy Lau and Jay Chou have learned magic from you, with Andy Lau being the most talented in magic performance.
Liu Qian: Yes. Nowadays, many people are showing strong interest in magic performance, I think in the future I may run a special magic performance training school, hoping to drive the industrialization of magic performance.
Reporter: From last year to this year, many audiences will find your magic mysterious, so after the Spring Festival Gala, there will be a lot of unveiled versions on the Internet, do you mind?
Liu Qian: Actually I can understand people's psychology of searching for the truth of marvelous things, but from my personal point of view, magic belongs to fairy tales and miracles, and unveiling the riddle of a magic show actually destroys people's imagination of "magic". In fact, I have made small mistakes in my performances, but no one has ever seen them, and every time I finish a performance, someone will ask me about the mystery of the magic show, but no matter who the other person is, I have never told them. Isn't it best to keep the mystery of magic?
