&x201C;Brother, is the
&x201C;How would I know if I do not have the habit of reading or chasing after online novels? What I know is that it would be a very big drama production and many female artistes are vying for this resource. However, it seems as though the original author and inventor of the
&x201C;Wow! I am so happy right now, Brother. I really like that novel. Do you know who the first male lead for the novel is? Has it been decided already?&x201D; Nan Yan continued questioning Nan Jin. She was not even interested in eating her breakfast anymore.
&x201C;Not yet. However, it would be a little difficult for the fans of the novel to accept the new love line between the new first male and female lead. This is because someone else has already bought the copyright for the game version of
Nan Yan nodded her head after listening to her brother&x2019;s explanation. After a brief moment, she turned around before she asked her brother, &x201C;Then&x2026;Brother&x2026;can you try to get me a small role in the drama?&x201D;
At this time, Nan Jin could not help but stared at his sister in disbelief. &x201C;My sister? Why would my sister want to play a small and insignificant role in a drama?&x201D;
&x201C;Didn&x2019;t Jiang Yuning say that I should stop relying so much on you?&x201D;
&x201C;Alright then. I will get you the role so that you can go and prove yourself.&x201D;
Nan Jin would do it just so that this silly girl would stop saying that he was overprotective of her all the time.
&x201C;So, when are you going to apologize to Jiang Yuning?&x201D;
Nan Yan did not reply because still felt a little awkward and she did not know how to apologize to Jiang Yuning. She would just think about what to do when that time comes.
On the other hand, the original author of
Since the scenes today involved filming under the heavy rain today, Jiang Yuning was exposed to the heavy rain for more than three hours. All the production crew and cast members could see that Jiang Yuning was already shivering from the cold.
Everyone in the crew knew that Jiang Yuning was afraid of the cold but they also knew that she was a very responsible and dedicated actress. She was very committed to her work and she would never delay or cause any problems to the people around her due to her own personal reasons.
Therefore, it wasn&x2019;t until Director Mong finally yelled &x2018;cut&x2019; that the young paparazzo quickly hurried over to Jiang Yuning before placing a dry bath towel over Jiang Yuning who was completely drenched from head to toe.
Jiang Yuning wiped the water off her face and she towel dried her hair a little before she wrapped the towel around her body.
&x201C;Are you okay, Yuning?&x201D; Director Mong asked Jiang Yuning when he saw that her lips had already turned purple. He was very concerned as he knew that the filming conditions for the scene today were extremely harsh.
&x201C;I am fine,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she shook her head.
&x201C;Sister Yuning, here, have a bowl of this ginger soup that I made for you,&x201D; one of the production crew members said as she handed a bowl of hot soup over to Jiang Yuning. &x201C;I have also added some of the herbs that you previously prescribed me for staying warm.&x201D;
&x201C;Thank you.&x201D; Jiang Yuning took the bowl of ginger soup and started drinking it and she finally felt warm and alive again.
&x201C;Why are you thanking me for? You are the reason why all of us are still so healthy despite the busy filming schedule!&x201D;
After she finished drinking the bowl of hot ginger soup, Jiang Yuning went into the dressing room to change into a set of clean and dry clothes. As soon as she was done changing into a clean outfit, the young paparazzo came in to inform her that there were two entertainment reporters who wanted to do a short interview with her. Jiang Yuning quickly packed her belongings before she stepped out of the dressing room in a hurry. At this time, Jiang Yuning saw two reporters waiting outside for her. However, Jiang Yuning felt that one of the reporters looked extremely familiar to her.
After thinking for a short while, Jiang Yuning suddenly realized her identity. &x201C;You&x2026;you are the famous author, Hou Da. You are Hou Da, right?&x201D;
The original author of the novel
&x201C;Well&x2026;sometimes when I drop by the bookstore, I would see photographs of you advertising for your fan meet and signing events.&x201D;
Moreover, Hou Da was easily recognizable because of the black mole by the corner of her lips.
&x201C;Alright then. Initially, I had wanted to pretend to b a reporter. Hahaha. Anyway, the purpose of my visit today is to find out what your views are and what you think about the novel,
&x201C;Let&x2019;s continue talking while we walk,&x201D; Jiang Yuning said to the other party. &x201C;Actually, the reason I have not replied to you is because I don&x2019;t feel prepared for the role yet. Hou Da, didn&x2019;t you sell the game copyrights of your novel to a gaming company previously? The gaming company had actually hired an actor and actress to play the love line of your first male and female lead. Why didn&x2019;t you approach them to play the roles in your drama instead?&x201D;
&x201C;Just because I like you!&x201D; Hou Da replied without any hesitation at all. &x201C;I like to see you getting abused by the netizens. Hahaha&x2026;&x201D;
Jiang Yuning was dumbstruck.
&x201C;Alright. It&x2019;s because I really like you and your personality. Therefore, I decided that I would have to get to know you personally.&x201D;
The few of them walked towards Jiang Yuning&x2019;s hotel room and at this time, the young paparazzo and the reporter quietly retreated to give Jiang Yuning and Hou Da some room to communicate and share their thoughts on the drama.
Hou Da had become a famous author early in her life. She was a very famous romance and contemporary writer. She was a very optimistic and cheerful person who was extremely confident in her own talents and abilities.
Both Jiang Yuning and Hou Da were already laughing and getting along very well with one another after meeting for less than half an hour.
&x201C;I had initially suggested that the investors invite Lin Kaiyan to play the role of the first male lead. However, after approaching him, he refused to participate in the drama production as soon as he heard that I intended for you to be the first female lead in this drama.&x201D;
&x201C;Why? Does he think the production team will not be able to pay him well?&x201D;
&x201C;It is because of your poor acting skills! And you lack of talent!&x201D; Hou Da replied as she laughed. &x201C;But I really do feel that Lin Kaiyan is really too arrogant for his own good even though he is a very well-known actor. I don&x2019;t like the fact that he is looking down on others when he had also gone through the same experience in the past. How could he look down on someone who is facing a rough patch in life?&x201D;
&x201C;Who is facing a rough patch in life?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked as she winked at Hou Da.
&x201C;Who else are we talking about now? You should be grateful and start thanking me for giving you this amazing opportunity,&x201D; Hou Da laughed once again. &x201C;Anyway, I hope that you can think about it and sign the contract with us to play the role of the first female lead as soon as possible. I believe that you have already read the drama script, so you should know how amazing the drama is.&x201D;
&x201C;Am I really that pitiful that you have to chase after me like this?&x201D;
&x201C;To be honest, I am really stressing out over the choice of the first male lead. It is already giving me a massive headache. It feels as though there are really no suitable candidates nowadays,&x201D; Hou Da said as she leaned against the back of the sofa as she placed her palm on her forehead.
At this time, Jiang Yuning suddenly spoke up, &x201C;Hou Da, do you mind if I share my opinion on this matter?&x201D;
&x201C;Yes, you have no say in this matter.&x201D;
Despite Hou Da&x2019;s reply, Jiang Yuning continued speaking as she put forward her suggestion to Hou Da. &x201C;I think that you should stop looking for actors who are already very well-known and established in the entertainment industy, as most of them are similar to Lin Kaiyan. They would be very picky about the work environment, the benefits, and the partners that they would be working with. Meanwhile, there are many new and young actors who are also equally capable and willing to work with someone else. Moreover, they would also be more than willing to endure any hardship. I think that the role of the first male lead in
&x201C;That makes sense,&x201D; Hou Da replied as she seriously considered Jiang Yuning&x2019;s words.
Both of them had a lot to talk about and they continued chatting until Jiang Yuning finally had to leave to film her next scene.
When Hou Da finally left the filming location, she had a huge smile on her face. It had not been a wasted trip after all.
Hou Da was also the young lady of a prestigious family and she could tell at first glance that Jiang Yuning had good character and she had been brought up well.
Moreover, Hou Da realized that Jiang Yuning was a very interesting person and was someone very easy to get along with.
This was one of the main reasons why she wanted Jiang Yuning to be the first female lead in the drama.
She firmly believed that people who were portraying her work should have the same mentality and belief in her work, instead of simply playing the role of the character in her novel.
As for the previous couple who had played the love line for the gaming production, although she had not met them in person, she had seen the ten-second advertisement that the gaming company had prepared. She felt that the couple were expressionless and that they did not have any emotions at all. They were simply two flat and expressionless models&x2026;
They were also extremely arrogant right now just because they got a little famous after the advertisement.
