(Keep Dragging People Down)
“Cut!” Sun Yiwu shouted through the loudspeaker, and everyone stopped.
Sun Yiwu stood up and gave Lu Man a thumbs up and clapped as he walked over. “Lu Man, this scene was good, it’s passed with one try!”
“It’s good that it passed,” Lu Man let out a breath of relief. “I’m a newcomer, and before this, I never had any acting experience, so I was very scared that I would not be able to act well and end up making a lot of mistakes.”
Especially when she was acting opposite an award-winning actor.
There were quite a few male actors with good skills who kept high expectations of their co-actors, if their co-actor did not have enough acting skills, they would prefer to stop acting.
The good thing was even though Zhang Shuidong was an award-winning eminent actor, he was a nice, modest person who did not look down on her or become displeased just because she was a newcomer.
Yet the pressure on Lu Man was still quite big.
At that moment, Zhang Shuidong smiled and walked over, also praising her. “Lu Man, your acting just now really gave me a shock, your eyes displayed so many expressions! It’s very hard to believe that you have never acted before this.”
Sun Yiwu laughed and said, “I have said it before, Lu Man has a talent for acting, she was born to be in this industry.”
All this while, Bai Shuangshuang never thought that Lu Man would actually pass with one take.
She was quite far away and unlike Sun Yiwu, she was not watching it on the screen and was unable to see it clearly from where she was sitting.
“What’s so good about that!” Bai Shuangshuang sneered, “It must be that Director Sun reduced his expectations, she just had to say those lines with an expressionless face, who wouldn’t know how to do it!”
Yu Yanshu rolled his eyes, not wanting to sit together with Bai Shuangshuang anymore, he had his assistant move his chair and walked over to Zhang Shuidong.
“Come, next scene!”
The next scene was a scene with Zhang Shuidong, Bai Shuangshuang, Yu Yanshu, and Lu Man.
“Lu Man, don’t drag us down!” Even before they started to record, Bai Shuangshuang warned Lu Man.
“Lu Man’s acting is quite good, Xiao Bai, don’t give her stress,” Zhang Shuidong said.
Bai Shuangshuang pursed her lips. “I just don’t want us to waste our time.”
“We’re starting, prepare yourselves!” Sun Yiwu yelled.
Zhang Shuidong’s acting skills were of course not a problem, and he respected his job, thus he had long memorized his lines very well.
For Yu Yanshu, rather than acting skills, it was more of an action scene.
Not only did Lu Man say her lines well, but her expressions were also very copacetic, especially the details, she had a good command over them.
On the other hand, Bai Shuangshuang kept having NGs.
If it was not her forgetting her lines, then it was her stuttering and sometimes it was just that she did not have a good grasp on the emotions.
“Cut!” Sun Yiwu was also angry, “Bai Shuangshuang, what’s going on with you! So many people have to stay here and repeat with you!”
If she did a bad take once or twice, or even five times or six times, he could stand it, but Bai Shuangshuang had already done NGs 10 times!
Bai Shuangshuang’s face turned pale, she had just wanted to go against Lu Man and oppress Lu Man in terms of acting skills.
But because of that, multiple times, due to using too much force, her acting became poor.
On the other hand, Lu Man was very calm.
The more you care about something, the easier it is to have problems.
After doing bad takes a few times, Bai Shuangshuang started to become nervous.
How could she not even compare to Lu Man!
Every time they had to NG, it wasn’t Lu Man’s fault at all, it was all her fault!
No, she needed to perform properly, just now, before filming she had warned Lu Man not to drag them down.
In the end, the one who was dragging them down was herself.
Bai Shuangshuang’s face turned ghastly pale, and she instinctively looked at Lu Man, feeling that Lu Man was laughing and her expression was mocking her.
Her face immediately turned bright red in embarrassment.
Zhang Shuidong was also not happy anymore and frowned, then he said in a serious tone, “Originally, I had thought that since Lu Man was a newcomer, it could take a bit of time acting with her, and I was already prepared for it. But I did not think that Lu Man would perform so well and that instead, it would be you, an experienced actor who would keep dragging us down.”
