Hearing the question from Director Cheng, the assistant director quickly replied, “It seems to be a little actress called Ruan Tian.”
Cheng Suian frowned subtly as he recalled that he had seen this name on many hot searches recently. It seemed this woman was the noisy attention-seeking type.
His impression of her immediately turned bad.
For this kind of person that ran around stirring up scandals, there were probably no acting skills to speak of.
Cheng Suian’s face turned cold, not wanting to waste time on such a person at all.
But then he glanced sideways at his nephew who was sitting in a wheelchair nearby and reluctantly decided to give him some face this time.
But Qin Yu seemed to perceive his uncle’s gaze. He looked up and smiled at him faintly, “Uncle just choose who you like, there’s no need to worry on my account.”
Hearing that, Cheng Suian’s dark face lightened a bit. It seemed that his nephew didn’t plan to forcibly stuff anyone into the cast.
Qin Yu slowly opened the script in front of him, and traced his finger around for a while before landing on a certain spot, “Just let her act this scene.”
In the scene he indicated, the second female lead didn’t want to be beaten again so she took the initiative to take off some of her clothes to tempt a client.
The moment Ruan Tian walked into the room and saw Qin Yu, she felt very startled, but she tried to look away and ignore him.
Cheng Suian froze for a moment after Ruan Tian came in, especially when he saw the vulgar makeup slathered on her face. Suddenly, he felt that this was exactly what he was looking for.
He pointed to the spot on the script and said, “Just act out this scene and we’ll see.”
Then he pointed to Qin Yu who was sitting in a wheelchair, and said, “Just treat him as the man in the scene.”
Ruan Tian’s eyes followed where the director was point and she saw–
Agh! My eyes! My eyes! (tl note: ‘my eyes’ is written twice in English in the raw. It’s a joke.)
Qin Yu’s face was sickly and pale as usual, and there was no expression on his face. The corners of his eyes were slightly raised, as if he were smiling but also not smiling, and when her eyes met his, she felt a chill sweep up her spine.
Ruan Tian didn’t think that Qin Yu had come here in his capacity as a CEO, rather, he had probably deliberately come over to watch her make a fool of herself.
After all, it seemed there was one thing Qin Yu liked doing very much.
And that was watching her making a fool of himself, failing, and then showing up to mock her.
She really couldn’t understand the ‘fun’ enjoyed by a psychopath.
After a moment, Ruan Tian obediently put on the clothes prepared in advance by the crew and quickly immersed herself in the scene.
She stood in front of Qin Yu, her eyes flat and numb, and with a distant smile she unbuttoned the top of her shirt before saying, “Six hundred, how about it?”
In this scene, the second female lead was very afraid of being beaten again.
But she couldn’t shed any tears, and she could only bear it as best she could.
The costume had a low neckline, so after unbuttoning it a bit you could already see the top of her underwear, and she took the initiative to reach out and touch the man’s hand before saying in an imploring tone: “Come on, touch me. I won’t let you spend money for nothing.”
The scene was just those three lines.
After it was over, Ruan Tian quickly fixed her clothes and blinked sourly, “Director, what do you think?”
Cheng Suian had bolted upright in his chair. His face was stern and solemn, but there was ecstasy in his heart.
Ruan Tian’s performance had really shocked him. In a moment, it was as if she had really transformed into a poor woman with no choice but to sell her body.
Her trembling and numb look made the people watching almost unable to breathe.
The thick makeup on Ruan Tian’s face, coupled with her natural performance, made Cheng Suian really feel that she was the person he had been looking for all along.
Cheng Suian had really seen the character’s aura projected through Ruan Tian’s eyes.
She had firmly broken through his prejudice! He really hadn’t expected this woman to act so well!
It was an unexpected, but happy, surprise.
Cheng Suian looked at Ruan Tian with a complicated gaze. After a moment, he lit up another cigarette, and with hardly any hesitation said, “You’re the one.”
The deputy director froze, but after a moment he asked in a timid voice, “Director, there are still a few actresses who haven’t auditioned yet. Shouldn’t we let them try as well? It’s not good to decide too early, right?”
Cheng Suian frowned, “Don’t do any more auditions, she’s the one.”
The deputy director sensed that it wouldn’t be smart to object any further, so he just acquiesced. He pulled Ruan Tian to the side and quietly added her on WeChat before telling her not to speak of this to anyone and sending her back out.
After she stumbled out of the room, Ruan Tian’s mind was still a little confused because of this sudden development, and she was in a bit of a daze.
Seeing her like this, Jiang Lili felt sorry for her.
It looked like this child had been hit hard by the shock of rejection.
“Don’t be sad, TianBaby, I’ll treat you to dinner, okay?”
Ruan Tian stayed dazed and muddled all the way until she got into Jiang Lili’s luxury car. Eventually, when they had stopped at a red light, she suddenly blurted out, “Lili, I actually got the role.”
Jiang Lili seemed to have lost her voice from the shock.
But after a moment, an earth-shattering “****!” resounded from the idling car.
Director Cheng’s new movie was a big project, and there were always a lot of eyes watching for any new developments.
Although his casting this time had been carried out in a low-key manner, the media still heard the news from somewhere.
Thus, outside the well-protected film and television company building, the media were intently focused on catching a glimpse of the people going in and out of the audition. Of course, they also took many photos of Ruan Tian, who had drifted out of the building with a dazed look as if she had lost her soul.
