After actor number thirteen came out from their audition, a staff member called Ji Yi's name and gestured for her to come onto the set.
Each actor had their own acting methods. To prevent people from being influenced by other actors, only one actor at a time was allowed on set.
Whether it was the investments or the cast, Director Liang's new movie had to have the best, so aside from the production staff, influential people from the industry were also invited to judge the auditions. This included producers, co-directors, and some investors.
Four years ago, after Ji Yi became famous overnight, she quickly gained a lot of experience with acting and going onstage, so she wasn't the least bit nervous about this situation. When she saw director Liang signal for her, she stepped in front of the judging panel with unbound elegance. She held a perfect smile and stood naturally as everyone assessed her appearance.
As everyone checked her up and down, her eyes scanned the people in the studio. There were some people she met in the past, and some were completely new faces. In the end, her eyes fell on director Liang. Her expression froze slightly when she accidentally caught sight of the person sitting next to him from the corner of her eyes. She didn't take a close look, but she could tell it was him... He Jichen, who she hadn't seen for several days.
What's he doing here? What's more, why's he sitting next to director Liang...? Ji Yi's mood was inevitably affected by He Jichen's presence, but she knew just how important today's audition was, so she quickly composed herself. She pretended he wasn't even there and calmly introduced herself to everyone in the room. "Hello everyone, I'm Ji Yi."
After hearing her introduction, an expert and senior in the industry asked, "Miss Ji Yi. What role are you auditioning for today?"
Without any hesitation, two words slipped from Ji Yi's mouth, "Little Nine."
These two casually spoken words stirred commotion in the room.
In director Liang's movie, Little Nine had a total of five lines of dialogue. She wasn't even considered an insignificant female role, let alone a supporting female character. At most, she was fodder for the camera.
The main female character was already confirmed for the movie, but there were still positions available for supporting female characters two and three. Most of thecandidates that day were auditioning for the second and third female role; this was the first time an actress auditioned for such an inconspicuous character. It was perhaps the first time they'd encountered something like this in their entire history of holding auditions.
Everyone's attention was suddenly on Ji Yi.
From the beginning of auditions that day, director Liang seldom shared any thoughts, but this time, he couldn't help but ask, "Why did you choose this character?"
"Because I quite like this character." Ji Yi's answer was very conservative, but she spent a few days analyzing the characters from director Liang's movie. It wasn't that the other characters weren't good, but Little Nine's character was odd in all the right ways. She liked the main female character, she went crazy for love, and even turned corrupt for love. In the end, she made a huge sacrifice for love. Even though she rarely appeared in any scenes, she was an exquisitely intriguing character.
