Many fans of the novel, 'The Green Apple', openly discussed the newcomer on Weibo, with some of them even asking for her name.
Meanwhile, others expressed their high expectations for the upcoming movie. The film's desirability had significantly risen.
Quite a number of people showed support for the director and praised the hardworking production team for their stringent standards in role selection. They believed that the film would be a classic.
For select individuals, they made their desire for the director to stick to the original work as close as possible known.
Inside the production set, Mu Xi opened Weibo on her phone. Within a few days, the verified account she got for Yun Shishi gained a following of two million.
Two million fans within a few days!
Oh, god. This was nothing short of a miracle!
One must know that this was an incredible feat for a rookie!
This meant that her popularity was on the rise by the day!
It appeared that everyone had high expectations for her.
The female lead was finished with her make-up and came up to her assistant. Seeing her busily fiddling with her phone, she thought that the former was watching an interesting video clip. Upon a closer look, however, she realized that her assistant was reading the fans' messages on Weibo.
"What are you doing?" Yun Shishi whispered to her ear.
The assistant jumped with a start and patted her chest in relief when she saw that it was only her. "My gosh, you scared me! Shishi, you're finally here—wow…"
Mu Xi widened her eyes at her actress in awe. "Oh, god… Shishi, you look so gorgeous in your makeup!"
She was in a high-school uniform, a white short-sleeve shirt and a navy-blue pleated skirt, which showed off her pair of long, slender, and fair legs.
Her face wore nude makeup to project the image of a high-school student. There were hardly any traces of cosmetics on her face; in fact, despite wearing a thick layer of foundation, she appeared not to be wearing any makeup at all.
The stylist lightly lined her eye rims, which accentuated her orbs further. Her lashes were long and pretty. With the addition of her pink lips, white teeth, and rosy cheeks, she was freshly elegant and captivatingly beautiful at the same time!
She was really tickled by her assistant's reaction. "What do you mean? Are you trying to say that I look plain without makeup?"
"Of course, not! I'm just saying that you look even better with makeup on! Ahh, Shishi! I've decided that, from now on, you will be my goddess!" Her assistant was totally conquered by her beauty.
"Er," she probed curiously, "who used to be your goddess, then?"
"Lin Zhi, ah!" the assistant replied with her eyes blinking.
"Lin Zhi?" She tried to conjure the image of the said actress in her mind.
"Are you really into showbiz? She's the actress who shot to fame in 'Rose Night'. She's been around for three years now. With her superstar status, she's currently worth tens of million yuan!" Her voice was full of admiration. "Shishi, work hard, aye? I see potential in you. Do well in this show, and you'll be famous!"
Just then, her phone rang without warning.
Yun Shishi took out her phone. When she saw the name flickering on the screen, the expression on her face changed abruptly, and she cut it off sans a second thought.
"Who called?" her assistant asked, only to hear the phone ring again.
Her artiste cut it off without looking this time.
The assistant was stunned. "Shishi, why don't you accept the call?"
"Don't plan to do so." Her face had turned frosty for unknown reason.
The phone rang again stubbornly.
After she cut off the call again, she put the number on her blocklist.
Her assistant was too astonished for words.
This usually happens when a couple quarrels, right?
Does she… have a boyfriend?
