On the day of the audition, she was up really early, and once she was done preparing herself, she rushed to the audition venue.
She was in the second group as Lin Zhi, but the latter was up first, while she was last.
As for Han Yuyan, she was in the first group. Once they were at the scene, Mu Xi went to check the situation with the first group.
It turned out that Han Yuyan had been kicked off.
"She's been kicked off?!" Yun Shishi looked at the name list. Was the actress not commended by the director for her remarkable performance?
"Yes! The director said that he's pleased with her performance, but that's just an empty compliment. If he directly said that she's out, wouldn't that be embarrassing for her? He definitely didn't want to offend anyone. Although he's rejecting her, he should still ensure that all was well! Anyway, that's what I heard from the insiders, so it couldn't be wrong!"
Her assistant was efficient with her work; thus, she trusted her. It was just unexpected for the first-tier actress to be rejected in the first round of auditions.
"Why did she get rejected?"
"She looks mature. After all, her age is already out there. Moreover, in order to advance toward Hollywood, her stylist is instilling the aura of a top actress in her. The director thought that she's way mature for the role and doesn't give the feeling he's after."
She pursed her lips. Chengguang was indeed very scheming!
The production team had just posted news of Han Yuyan participating in the auditions for the female lead role on Weibo, yet it had already spread everywhere.
Her following should not be underestimated.
The supporters of the actress to be the female lead were the most vocal.
From this, one could see that Chengguang aimed to use the actress as a stepping stone for Lin Zhi.
The starlet must be feeling depressed right now, but there was nothing that she could do. This was truly a great script, and if there was even the slightest chance for her to get the part, she would not let go of it.
Mu Xi brought her charge to the makeup room.
On their way there, Yun Shishi brushed shoulders with a lady wearing a magnificent attire.
She turned for a moment to look but did not pay much mind to it and just kept following her assistant toward the makeup room.
However, someone called out to her from behind.
"Stop right there!"
She stopped walking hesitantly and turned around slowly. She looked at the lady in a glorious wedding attire.
She did not seem familiar yet she was also not foreign.
On normal days, she rarely paid heed to dramas and movies. It was her assistant who had recognized the woman first, and she whispered it to her ear, "That's Lin Zhi…"
Her assistant was clearly a little excited.
It was not surprising. The woman was her goddess. At such a young age, the actress managed to build a name for herself in showbiz with her beautiful looks and superb acting skills!
She looked at the actress, only to find the other sizing her up with a slack but cold look.
"Are you…" the actress muttered, "Yun Shishi?"
She remembered her.
She was that newbie talked about on Weibo.
It seemed that she was a talent Huanyu had been pushing recently.
This woman had just debuted, yet Huanyu had been splurging on her, and most of the resources used were valuable.
Yun Shishi nodded courteously. "Nice to meet you!"
In comparison, Lin Zhi was a little arrogant. "Are you here to audition?"
Mu Xi was sharp enough to sense the hostility in the actress's eyes. Suddenly, she felt a little uncomfortable inside.
She had seen her interviews, and the media had been full of praises for her.
They commented the actress' gentle and pleasant disposition, but this moment had ruined the good impression she had of her.
Her charge replied simply, "Yes."
"I don't recall the director inviting you here." The actress paused for a moment before unexpectedly asking, "You requested for a spot yourself, huh?"
