Best Actor Wants To Stay With Me - Chapter 1769
Chapter 1768 Audition (4)
But her arrival still made the people waiting in the line a little bit of discussion.
Even if there is no such “catching” fire, she is also the top female star of China. After ten years of fire, although the reputation is mixed and the reputation is sparse, but black and red are also red, this is absolutely the truth. The entire Chinese circle, or in other words, the East Asian circle is very famous.
As soon as she appeared, many people watched around her. This time, there are big stars and newcomers who have just made their debut. Casting does not depend on your reputation, but mainly depends on the appropriateness of you and the character.
Occasionally a few acquaintances, although Xia Siyu has always given the image of domineering and arrogant, but met acquaintances will also politely greet. The same is true for meeting people from other countries. She has no problem with English, and there is no barrier to switching languages and communication with other people.
Xia Siyu came just at the right time, and Wei Jingjing helped her sign up.
Many people came to the audition, and they wore the clothes as described in the original work, red high-slit cheongsam, high heels, black shawl and long hair. The whole audition scene is like a large COSPALY area. Some professional ones, even the watches and jewelry that the characters like to wear in the original work are reproduced one by one.
When I met with the producer last time, she was reminded to wear something a little more formal. She chose a small dress casually and stepped on small leather shoes. She didn’t care about the appropriateness of the role.
While waiting, Shang Feier also came. It can be seen that she has to prepare a little bit more than Xia Siyu, she also wears a red dress and high heels, and her hairstyle is as simulated as possible. Most of Shang Feier’s acting is a cold and stubborn image, rarely wearing a charming-feeling, how to say this body is quite fresh. However, it always feels a little bit unsuitable, as if a good girl has failed to learn.
The two were not friends at all. Shang Feier’s friendship was much broader than Xia Siyu’s. Many people greeted her when they came here. It was much more enthusiastic than the cold scene where a group of people watched Xia Siyu but rarely came up to talk to each other.
Xia Siyu didn’t care, just watching the excitement.
There are countless auditions she has participated in. The only difference this time is that the other party will ask her how her English is before the interview. If not, there is also an interpreter.
Of course Xia Siyu didn’t need it, but she still pointed at Shang Feier badly and said: “I think she probably needs it.”
Shang Feier’s English… Before they went abroad to participate in variety shows, only the level of daily dialogue. Later, I went to Cannes and didn’t realize how good this guy’s English is. Although she graduated from the film school, she has finished her undergraduate degree seriously. But everyone in the film school knows that if you can honestly study in school for four years, you can count as a master in the entertainment industry. Even if the students from better schools, some of their spoken English is still not up to the standard.
Although Cannes was also a year ago, Shang Feier could of course learn English by herself during this year. However, it seems that she does have a need for translation. However, Shang Feier brought her own translator. She was ranked in front of Xia Siyu. During the audition, she brought another girl in. It is estimated that there are some problems with expression, and she has to rely on this translator to save the field.
Although this year, with the improvement of China’s national strength, more and more people have begun to learn Chinese. However, in the international arena, English is indeed still hard currency. Xia Siyu had never felt that once this time came, it was still necessary.
Although the film can be dubbed, as long as you master the basic vocabulary, it is not impossible to shoot. But proficiency in foreign languages is indeed more helpful for foreign work. After all, the translation is not perfect, and you cannot translate the director’s context and circumstances without reservation.
It seems that there are many actors on the scene, and they can’t pass the language test. Of course, language is only one of the factors. If the casting director sees you, only basic communication is possible. In the end, it depends on whether you can play this role well.
The auditions were given for ten minutes, and it didn’t take long for Shang Feier to come out. Although she couldn’t tell whether she was successful or not from her facial expressions, Xia Siyu had known her for many years and still knew her. Shang Feier has no expression on her face, that is, it is unlikely that she can be sure only if she has a relaxed expression.
Shang Feier went out and didn’t say hello to Xia Siyu. The two glanced at each other in the corridor, and then passed by. But fortunately with her, Xia Siyu’s previous anger towards Bo Yan was transferred to her.
Xia Siyu and Shang Feier have auditioned several times together, and there have been successes and failures. Both of them are very peaceful. They can get the best, and it’s okay if they can’t.
Although she was still not so interested in this role, she was very happy to see Shang Feier deflated.
After Shang Feier, it was the turn of a Korean actress, and then her. Xia Siyu calmly opened the door and entered. This is a small theater with a chair on the stage. Sitting in the first row of auditoriums below is the casting director, producer and director of this movie. The two who had dinner with Xia Siyu last time, including Steve and Wang Yiwu. His expression was serious and serious, and he couldn’t see the slightest care.
The stage is also very dim and slightly depressing.
Steve said in a cold and sharp tone: “First introduce yourself.”
This is also one of the habit of Hollywood casting. When you come up, I will give you a start and let the participants start performing under pressure. If the stress test of the first view fails, and you become nervous and perform abnormally, then there will be no way to talk about subsequent performances.
Xia Siyu hadn’t experienced such a harsh audition for a long time. Even in the audition for “The Tempest”, there was no deliberately increased pressure this time. It’s like, in the eyes of these people, these actors, no matter who they are, are just a newcomer. That’s right, after all, Chaoying is a series of big IPs that have broken tens of billions of dollars. With such a big IP, no matter how hot the Asians are, they are just flopping in their own circles. The mainstream circle of the world is still white.
However, what Xia Siyu fears most is pressure.
On the contrary, the greater the pressure, the calmer she is. She smiled: “Do you mind if I sit down first?”
After contacting Steve last time, the other party reminded her of her English accent. So she deliberately switched to American English this time, sitting in a chair calmly, and folding her legs freely. Although sitting on the chair crookedly, his back was straight, and his posture was lazy with a touch of elegance: “Xia Siyu, a Chinese native, an actor, specializes in dancing and boxing.”
Simple cannot be simpler, without the slightest flamboyant flattery. Unlike other people, he expressed his love for this character as soon as he came up, and he loved this character as much as possible.
