Michelle Yeoh will return as Captain/Emperor Georgiou, who is now an operative for Section 31: the Federation's clandestine black-ops branch. ("Don't you bow?" Yeoh asked, as Romijn introduced her.) Yeoh is thrilled about getting the chance to play a character who's a very different from both the straight-laced captain and the power-hungry emperor.

"[Secton 31 Georgiou is] manipulative, devious, sexy. We're in leather all the time," said Yeoh. "I'm loving every minute of it... I have a lot more fun playing this character. She's not a monster. There's a deep seed of humanity inside her."

- "Michelle Yeoh" scam - BEWARE! A fan alerted me that she received a message from "Michelle Yeoh" via Facebook Messenger. After some nice chat, the "Michelle Yeoh" offered some gifts from her as her way of honoring some "long time faithful fans" and eventually asked for a big gift delivery fee.... For anyone who doesn't know, Facebook's messaging service has big flaws which make it very easy for someone to pretend to be someone else (there have been many cases of fake accounts of celebrities attempting to rip off unsuspecting fans). It didn't help that for quite a while there was no way to report such fraud (I believe Messenger finally released a tool to report fake accounts, in May).

- Michelle has returned to Europe.

- Excerpt from Deadline interview with CBS All Access Bosses:

  Deadline: Based on the way the first season of Discovery ended, is there a Trek series with Michelle Yeoh in the works?
  Julie McNamara (programming chief for All Access): We've really talked about virtually all of the characters who popped in Discovery as potential spin-off shows. It's obviously very much driven by our conversations with Alex Kurtzman's Secret Hideout and the other creators involved. I wouldn't say at this point that we are actively pursuing a Michelle Yeoh series but it has been discussed.

- REALLY?!! It was TWENTY years ago when this website, the Michelle Yeoh Web Theatre, came live online! ...   Wow, I knew how to make a website 20 years ago? I'm impressed by my 20 year-younger self, LOL!

Since I'm feeling a bit into...uh, history, let me share a few screenshots of the very original Michelle Yeoh Web Theatre. Do they still look familiar to some of you? (waiving to YOU - our OLD friends!   ;-)  )

(1) the Front page. the 3 images were in fact short animations   (2) the Preface page
(3) the very first few What's New posts in 1998   (4) the 1st anniversary, 1999

(This layout design was used from August 1998 to the end of 2000. The current (3rd) design was made in the spring of 2008, more than ten years ago. In case you are curious what was in the Gallery at the beginning, the photos and story are here - my first time meeting Michelle and my first Michelle autograph ;-).   )

THANK YOU, all our old and new friends! for your N years of visits, encouragement, and support! This site would not last this long without YOU!
