Chapter 1441 Tit for Tat 4
Everyone knew that Qin Zhou had a poisonous tongue. His name was truly not in vain after personally experiencing it today!
This Qin Zhou, he seemed to be angering her to death!
As for Yun Shishi, she was clearly trying to make her uncomfortable!
Lin Zhi gritted her teeth in fury, but she could not do anything to the duo and could only stand at the side and say peculiarly, “I was also overwhelmed to receive Director Gu’s recognition, but since he picked me to be the female lead, the director must have his thoughts about it! After all, he is a highly acclaimed gold director in the industry. His insight leaves no room for any doubt!”
She was borrowing Gu Xiaoyang’s words to raise herself on a pedestal!
Her praise about the director having foresight was just her way of flaunting that she had relied on her abilities to clinch the female lead role in the ‘Lethal Beauty’.
The manager was filled with much disdain inside.
Since when was it based on her abilities?
If the entertainment industry was dependent on its people’s capabilities, where would she and her dishonest practices go?
Had she not relied on her financial backer to reach the top?
The moment the man thought of this, he became furious. If not for his charge somehow wanting to challenge the second female lead role, that female lead role might really not have been Lin Zhi’s.
He had mingled in this industry for so many years. With so many relationships and connections, how could he be unable to clinch the female lead role?
He let out a grunt, unable to stand this actress insulting his artist in front of him. His impression of the woman had turned for the worse within a split moment, and he mocked her openly, “You’d better put on a good show, then! With our Shishi in the same drama as you, playing a villainous role, it’ll be embarrassing if she becomes a hot topic while you’re unable!”
Her expression had completely darkened at this point!
His words had truly stabbed her heart.
There was a reason why he had said that.
In the past, she had also starred in a period drama as the female lead. However, that role’s character happened to be the typical naïve and sweet type, so it was not very well-liked. If it were a few years ago, that character’s conceptualization might still have been welcomed by the audience.
Alas, the naïve and sweet trope had long been overused. The audience was already sick and tired of such a cliché character. Therefore, many people loathed the lead role she played.
If not for her attractive index, which managed to salvage the situation somehow, the drama would have lost her a lot of fans.
This was not all, though.
What left her feeling the most indignant was that, the second female lead who went crazy over love and hatred, as well as had an evil character design, became famous with the viewers due to its artist’s exquisite acting skills.
Her limelight was, thus, completely masked by that artist’s popularity.
The drama, then, became that female celebrity’s representative work. The awkward thing was that, whenever the show was mentioned, most of the viewers’ first reaction was in regard to the female celebrity who had acted the second female lead role rather than Lin Zhi.
Therefore, when she heard Qin Zhou’s words, she knew that he was mocking her!
Why did he have to be so aggressive?
She was enraged. Shifting her gaze onto Yun Shishi, her narrow eyes got filled with hatred.
It must be because he was being protective of this newcomer!
After all, with him being her current manager, her earlier behavior toward the artist had likely angered him.
For what, though?
Why did he, the best manager in the industry and also an insufferably arrogant man, hold this artist in such high regard that he would protect her in every possible way?!
Exactly what was so good about her?
