            Monkey King Swinging Into the Future

          走进六小龄童,走进猴王未来

        

       For those few seconds, you’d believe that a real monkey is sitting across the table. Most Chinese know him by his stage name, Liu Xiao Ling Tong, but his real name is Zhang Jinlai, 57. During an interview, he pauses to mimic a monkey’s facial expressions.

He hit TV screens via his 25-episode Journey to the West in 1986 when he played Sun Wukong, or the Monkey King, in the series.

        With the Year of the Monkey just coming, Zhang was busy doing recordings for the Spring Festival galas of many TV stations. "I appear on stage purely to bring people happiness," he says.

But perhaps, the happiness is tinged with some nostalgia. It is estimated that the TV drama adapted from a 16th-century classic fantasy novel has been rebroadcast around 3,000 times.

        In a child’s mind in China, whenever its theme song plays on a TV channel, it means that the summer vacations have begun. For generations of TV viewers in China, Zhang is "the" Monkey King.

       "Several foreign friends have told me that they were astonished to find that every Chinese has the same answer when asked who Sun Wukong is," he says, despite not being the only one to play the role. "This is because when asked who James Bond is, they give you different answers, ranging from Pierce Brosnan to Roger Moore.”

中文翻译:

在这一瞬间,你以为坐在你对面的是一只真猴子……他就是全国人民家喻户晓的“美猴王”六小龄童,本名章金莱,现年57岁。在接受采访过程中,六小龄童停下来模仿起猴子的面部表情。

六小龄童在1986年25集电视剧《西游记》中饰演美猴王孙悟空一角,亮相电视荧屏,深受观众喜爱。

猴年将至,六小龄童正忙着为多家卫视录制春晚节目。六小龄童说,“我站在舞台上只是为人们带来快乐。”

不过,快乐或许总是与回忆相伴。《西游记》电视剧改编自16世纪的经典奇幻小说,据估计,该剧已转播约3000次。

在中国,电视里《西游记》的主题曲响起,对孩子来说就意味着暑假的到来。对几代电视观众而言,六小龄童才是真正的美猴王。

“一些外国朋友告诉我,当问及中国人谁是孙悟空时,他们惊奇地发现,每个人的答案都是相同的”,他说道,虽然他并不是唯一饰演孙悟空的演员。“这是因为,当问及谁是詹姆斯·邦德时,你会听到不一样的答案,从演员皮尔斯·布鲁斯南到罗杰·摩尔。”


新闻解析:

1.mimic vt.模仿;n.巧于模仿的人。

如:He mimicked her upper-class accent.他模仿她那上流社会的强调。注意mimic的过去时和过去分词为mimicked

2.hit v.达到(某一高点或低点)

hit在这边是一个特殊用法。[柯]If you hit a particular high or low point on a scale of something such as success or health, you reach it.

3.episode n.插曲,一集,片段
