Sandra Ma Reveals Painful Experience Growing Up Being Bullied

Looking at actress Sandra Ma Sichun now, you’d totally think the star has it all – a bright future, check; a promising career, check. A child actress who grew up to win the coveted Golden Phoenix and Golden Horse awards for her works The Left Ear and Soul Mate which she also co-starred with actress Zhou Dongyu, who would have thought that underneath her sweet appearance and success still hides an insecure girl?

In a recent episode of Not a Loner 看我的生活, the actress reveals that she is actually not very confident and in the past suffered horribly in the hands of bullies. She recounts that while she was still in junior high - a time she considers her personal "hell",  there was a girl who hated her so much that she put chalk water, rag water and mop water into her Coke. And the worst part was that she (Ma Sichun) only realised what the bully had done after she’d drank it already. The girl made her life miserable, often making fun of her and mocking her, even going as far as stealing the letters she’d wanted to send back home to her friends and reading it openly in class.

When finally other people couldn’t stand seeing her get bullied anymore and reported it on her behalf, the girl was forced by her teacher to apologise to a crying Ma Sichun but later mocked her again by asking “what are you crying at, I've already apologised!” Her parent’s unsympathetic advise - to just ignore her bully and to keep her head down and work hard to prove she is better than her bully didn’t exactly help too. These events clearly had a deep impact on shaping her sensitive nature as the actress said she still gets easily startled when someone talks too loudly and still suffers from bouts of anxiety and severe insomnia some nights. Even after making a name for herself in the industry, she still has little confidence in herself and sometimes feels that she is “nothing”. 

For an insecure person, Ma Sichun has certainly come a looooong way. She reveals how acting has helped her release her emotions. It takes a special kind of strength to be able to make it in an industry that leaves you open to naysayers and bashers looking to tear you down. While she may see herself as not having any confidence, I humbly beg to differ.

  2. Well, if till now she is still letting the one bully from 20 years ago affect her, then she really has a weak character and really hasn't grown emotionally at all. She even had friends who stood up for her and teachers who took up the case. I'm sorry, but I have no sympathy for her either. Just another one who is still using the distant past to seek attention and sympathy at this age.

    2. Yes she is weak, so what? I want to know how strong you are? You think by preying on weak people makes you strong? You are way wrong, preying on the weak means you are way way way way way weaker than them!!! You are weaker than her before you even call her weak.

      You never been bullied before because YOU ARE THE BULLY. You bully because you are insecure and infuriated by jealousy, you make others feel bad so they stoop to your level of insecureness. What Sandra Ma show us here is to STOP BULLYING! Even such a big winner like her now, she is still suffering from bullying because it has a life long effect. You know that. You know what a big impact bullying can bring to others. But you are still doing it even up to now. I cannot believe you will use the words "seek attention and sympathy" you are so heartless and cruel. You are definitely the B* who bullied her from the article, if you're not, you are no less different than her. When the article was talking about you up there, do you not feel how ugly you are? Do you understand how much people hate blood sucking mosquitos like you? Sandra has a beautiful heart that couldn't bear to "do what others do to you" so she couldn't revenge and act like how the ugly B* acted to her, that is not weak at all. In order to protect the innocent heart, she let it get injured, it rather be hurt and afraid than being a jealousy like you who attack others. It's easier to fight back than to hold back. If she expose that B* she would be dead by now, why didn't Sandra expose her? Because she's not ugly like you. You are ugly in and out. Sandra is beautiful in and out. You are jealous of her in each and every way.

  3. After director Zheng Xiao Long ditched ZLY in her upcoming work call Qiu Ju's Lawsuit, he decides to work on Gong Xun that's including Sandra Ma, ZLY fans has been hating Sandra Ma very much. They think she is newer and below ZLY. Little do they know Ma is a Golden Horse award winner!

    1. Hu Ge is rumored to play in Gong Xun. Rebecca Tang is signed up too. Gong Xun is obviously a much bigger production but ZXL didn't consider Zhao for the drama knowing she wants to work with Hu Ge. Ma Sichuan is the only person picked on because she's new.

  4. I'm sure if her parents are rich they would never let her get bullied, they must be poor that's why they did nothing. If she wants pity she would reveal how poor her family was. ZLY revealed her family was poor and people loved it, they never say she tried to gain pity out of it. Why is that Sandra revealed her heart breaking past and the haters...forget it if they have no heart to feel anything but they really scream that she hopes to gain attention out of something sensitive like this??????????? Can't believe the haters on this site are as terrible as the bully from the story above.
