Chapter 284: The Female Lead
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
This was not just a movie, but also a significant milestone in one’s acting career—an insurmountable gap for most people. After an actress became Chen Mo’s female lead, her acting career and value would surpass those of other actresses.
The assistant called Luo Xin’s agent, Zhang Yun, and soon received a message. He passed her the phone. “Sister Xin Xin, listen to this.”
When she heard Zhang Yun’s words, Luo Xin’s expression became even worse. Her grip on the phone made it seem like she wanted to crush it. She said coldly, “I understand.”
When the assistant saw her expression, he was shocked. He kept feeling that Sister Xin Xin was different from usual today. Was it because of Ling Sheng?
Ling Sheng had been selected, but she had been eliminated. She definitely could not accept this. He could not accept this either. Sister Xin Xin was more elegant than her and had better looks, better acting skills, and a better reputation than her.
Was Director Chen blind? Why had he chosen a stupid woman who was covered in so much dirt that she could not be washed clean?
Ling Sheng had only come to take a look because Nangong Lengmo had helped her at the press conference and had sincerely invited her to the audition. Who knew that she would be chosen?
Half an hour later, this felt like a dream.
Chen Mo had chosen the main character, so he had to choose the supporting characters slowly. The main character was the key of the movie, but the supporting characters were indispensable to a successful movie as well.
Sheng Xichen was a male lead, while Fang Hua was a female lead.
Although Ling Sheng had played the roles of female leads during her student days, she had not had many scenes.
Fang Hua was 36 years old now. If a female celebrity acted as a young girl at this age, no matter how good her acting skills were, she would still look awkward.
Chen Mo felt that her temperament was similar to Ling Sheng’s, and so was her face shape. After putting on makeup, she would definitely not look out of place.
When she got in the car, Ling Sheng held the script in her hand, finding this a little unreal. She called Mei Xuelin, her voice tense and agitated. “Sister Mei, do you know what I did?”
“What did you do?” Mei Xuelin shouted ferociously. “Xiao Liu, don’t tell me you landed yourself among the trending searches again?”
“I’m not among the trending searches. I’m auditioning for a role. Didn’t I tell you I would be auditioning today? Do you know who the director is?”
“Don’t tell me it’s Chen Mo! There are five Best Actors and four Best Actresses in our company, but none of them has been invited. I’ve been asking around for a long time and reached the conclusion that Director Chen might have a feud with our company.” Mei Xuelin was baffled.
Logically speaking, there were many actors with good acting skills at their studio, but none of them had received an invitation. It was as though they had deliberately avoided their company.
“You’re right. It’s Chen Mo. The man I met at the Hua Ying press conference the other day was Chen Mo. I’m a little agitated now. Let me tell you something… I’m the female lead of his movie.”
“What did you say? You’re the female lead? You’re not lying to me, are you?”
“No way, I would never lie to you. I managed to eliminate more than 100 capable actors. I’m the female lead. I’ve gotten the script. I’ll come to the company immediately.”
“Hurry up! I’ll wait for you.”
After Ling Sheng hung up, she was still extremely agitated. She thought about it and called Huo Ci. In a low voice, she asked, “Father, are you busy?”
“Let me tell you a piece of good news. I’m the female lead in Chen Mo’s new movie!”
Then, Huo Ci hung up.
Ling Sheng looked at the phone with a dumbfounded expression. Did he have to do that to her? He could only say one word? Couldn’t he give her some affirmation?
