Describe your favourite actor or actress. You should say: who this actor/actress is what type of actor/actress he or she is what are some programmes/movies he or she has acted in and describe why he/she is your favourite actor/actress. One of my favorite actors is Japanese Kabuki actor Bandō Tamasaburō V. He is a full-time actor. He didn't have easy beginnings, because he was not born into a distinguished family of the Kabuki world. He performed Lady Yang in Yokihi, a mix of kabuki and Peking Opera and Du Liniang in the phenomenal Kunqu opera "The Peony Pavilion" (Sino-Japanese version). Lady Yang was Emperor Xuanzong of Tang's daughter-in-law, then the emperor took her into his palace as his concubine. Attending on the Emperor is like sleeping with a tiger. Finally she was involved in palace affairs, was killed in Maweipo. I like him, because he works hard, came to China to study opera, made a good combination of Japanese Kabuki and Chinese opera. In Yokihi, he expressed the desperation and loneliness well. His thin white face, dark hair, reminds me of how Lady Yang was forced to die in Maweipo, falling on the ground covered with dust in such a cold world. He also performed the faintness and weakness well of Du Liniang in "The Peony Pavilion" when she wastes away and dies.

Training yourself to avoid them is probably the most valuable improvement you could make at this point. // Also, remember to use "become" (or "get" when you're speaking) whenever you talk about a transition from not being something, to being it. Last, remember that "finally" usually means "I had to wait longer than I wanted"--"ultimately" is often a better choice] I like him because he works hard, came to China to study opera, and made a good combination of Japanese Kabuki and Chinese opera.

His thin white face and dark hair reminds me of how Lady Yang was forced to die in Maweipo, falling on the ground covered with dust in such a cold world. He also performed the faintness and weakness of Du Liniang very well in "The Peony Pavilion," in which she wastes away and dies.
