The Side Character's Hidden Boss! - Chapter 448 - Accident
Chapter 448: Accident
“Wait, she’s in your Like A Willow? You should have told me!” Director Peng was impressed by Mo Li. No wonder the girl insisted on not using a stunt double, she is a professional.
“Not only that, she has also appeared in Ol’ Zhang’s projects.” Tang Ze said. Director Peng was shocked.
“I didn’t have an important role… I was just an extra.” Mo Li smiled apologetically.
“Anyway, we can talk about this later. We need to hurry up and wrap up this scene. Camera, lights, everyone, get ready!” Director Peng shouted. He turned around to get to his director’s seat.
Nie Li had something to tell Tang Ze so she called him to the side.
Song Xin clenched her fist and glared at Mo Li. Why? Why are so many people willing to support her? When I was a newbie… Song Xin took a deep breath. No, I shall not dwell on my past. Mo Li’s path might be smooth now but that doesn’t mean the path will continue to stay that way. The plan is set. In a minute, we’ll see if the bitch is really that lucky!
Mo Li was very sensitive to people’s gaze. She felt uncomfortable when she sensed Song Xin’s eyes on her. She turned around to ignore the woman.
As the director called for the camera to roll, the atmosphere on the set turned strange. Xia Mei handed Song Xin a bottle of water and lowered her head to whisper something into her ear. A smug smile appeared on Song Xin’s face.
After her dance scene, Zhuo Ran was soaking wet when she landed. Director Peng told her to go touch up her makeup while they moved to Mo Li’s turn.
After familiarizing herself with the script, Mo Li lifted into the air. She tried the dance on the drums and her movements were rather stiff. Director Peng told her to dance around the drums a few more times before Mo Li finally loosened enough. However, when Mo Li leaped through the different drums, her heart still shrunk. If there was an accident, it would be very dangerous!
Director Peng looked at Mo Li with sparkling eyes. He had to admit that this girl was really beautiful and suited the role.
The scene was a competition between Yun Jing and Huai Yan to be the crown prince’s consort. Huai Yan had to give her everything because she knew that Yun Jing was a dancer since she was young. Mo Li’s dance was not easy but she insisted on not using a stunt double. Most of the casts had experience shooting period drama so they were used to wire harnesses. Normally such scenes were tiring but not dangerous, provided that the martial arts director was professional.
For the last part of her dance, Mo Li had to leap over two large drums and land on a row of small drums. She needed to hit the two large drums with her sleeves and her scene would be over. She wasn’t required to be fast but her movements had to be large yet graceful.
“Tsk, look at how clumsy she is. She’s a joke. She’s just wasting everyone’s time. There is no beauty in her movement at all. She can’t compare to Song Xin.” Xia Mei who stood beside Song Xin mumbled with a mocking expression. In her eyes, the most outstanding person was Song Xin. No one else could compare to her.
“I disagree. Mo Li’s movements are very beautiful and graceful, it fits the role of a crown prince’s consort. Her expression and gaze are impressive.” A veteran said.
An Wan said, “Sir, people will see what they want to see. You can’t expect people to recognize a gem when they’re used to dealing with common rocks.”
Xia Mei was furious when she heard that. If Song Xin didn’t hold her back, she would have charged at An Wan already.
Zhuo Ran chuckled and she gave An Wan a thumbs up. She had given up on her idol, Song Xin. After interacting with Song Xin, she realized that her idol was very fake and she had a vendetta against Mo Li. “Only you dare to say something like that,” Zhuo Ran whispered to An Wan.
“People like her need to be taught a lesson.” An Wan glanced at Xia Mei before she turned back to look at Mo Li. Mo Li was about to finish her scene.
Mo Li was quite exhausted from all the dancing and leaping. She took a few deep breaths and prepared for the last few steps.
She jumped to the big drum on the left. The wind-blowers sent the flower petals into the air. Mo Li leaped and kicked on the drum behind her. Aided by the propelling force, she flew forward through the rain of flowers.
But at that moment, an accident happened.. Mo Li was supposed to kick on the other big drum and fly back but Mo Li flew right past the big drum, brushing against its side.
