Chinese actresses Zhou Dongyu and Ma Sichun on Saturday shared the Golden Horse Award for best lead actress with their performances in the romantic drama “Soul Mate”, about the love and life of two best friends.
“Soul Mate,” by Hong Kong director Derek Tsang, is about two best friends Qiyue and Ansheng, played by Ma and Zhou, whose friendship is tested and whose lives take different turns after they fall in love with the same man.
