Daily Life of a Villain’s Mother - Chapter 152
Chapter 152: High Ambitions (1)
At the studio.
An actress is wearing an ancient costume with delicately made-up face and hair.
She was sitting on a chair, looking through Weibo before shooting begins.
What she was watching was the audition of “Superstar Plan”.
Yue Shao hadn’t debuted for a short amount of time. She wasn’t popular enough the past few years so she didn’t get nominated for the Four Dan actresses.
In the past few years, Yue Shao had been working hard in her acting, and she finally gained a foothold in the entertainment industry, just barely allowing her to compete with those Four Dan actresses.
The scene was about to start, so the female lead Yue Shao handed her phone to the assistant beside her, allowing the make-up artist to fix her up before going.
She stood up.
Yue Shao heard a few staff members behind her discussing something.
That person’s voice was excited. “I just got back from ‘Prime Minister Shen’s’ set.”
“Come come quickly, did you get He Han’s signature?”
“I got He Han to sign two for me. This one is yours.” Then, she said, “I got Ye Fan’s signature too. She looks so beautiful in real life! And she’s got a good temper too.”
Yue Shao stopped and snorted lightly.
The costume drama she’s acting in now is considered a rather large IP, but it’s nothing like the one next door, “Prime Minister Shen”.
To put it simply, it was like the difference between plain congee and bird’s nest or shark’s fin soup.
In the ever-changing world of entertainment, newcomers are constantly emerging. Yue Shao understood that.
But Ye Fan debuted not long ago and already had so many famous supporting actresses under her role on her second series. Not to mention, the male lead is the super popular He Han.
All people have envy in their hearts. Yue Shao didn’t deny that she was envious of the roles Ye Fan got, but what made her even more unsatisfied is the fact that Ye Fan was just a relatively more popular artist.
What made her deserve this?
Because she used to be Tang Jin’s stand-in? Because her performance on the reality show pleased the masses?
Whatever show Ye Fan acted in would always cause heated discussions. Such qualities are things Yue Shao could never get no matter how much she envied it.
“What are you thinking about, Yue Shao?” The director called out to her. “We’re about to begin.”
Yue Shao gradually retracted her emotions and pursed her lips. She knew that she was distracted earlier.
Her assistant came over. “An interview for you have just been scheduled for later.”
Yue Shao’s voice was cold. “Got it.”
The cameras are set, Yue Shao’s acting begins.
She had been acting for so long and gradually formed her own routines. She’s a big star anyway. These bland scenes don’t really require much skill so they only had to go through it once.
After the scene was finished, Yue Shao was still in a bad mood.
Sitting on a chair outside, she received the interview from Pear Entertainment.
First, Pear Entertainment asked her about the drama before asking curiously, “Many artists have been going into reality shows. Have you thought about doing them?”
“I don’t think that relying on getting fans through reality shows is going to work on the long-term.” Yue Shao laughed with a hint of mocking in her tone. “Actors have to rely on their work.”
“You know, for some people, their popularity comes from a shallow place. Solid ratings and box office sales are what matters the most.”
Yue Shao shot a meaningful glance at the palace court not far away.
Costume dramas have been popping up quite often in recent years, so several crews were all rushing to film there.
And, it was the crew of “Prime Minister Shen” filming there today.
The reporter felt like he seemed to have caught onto some big news and quickly probed, “The reality show ‘Let’s Travel’ has been popular recently. Have you watched it?”
Yue Shao flashed a shallow smile at the reporter, not answering.
“Among the guests of ‘Let’s Travel’, which one of them do you think has more shallow fame?” The reporter’s question was cunning. “Ye Fan, Gu Yachen, or Mai Ruxiang?”
Of course Yue Shao wouldn’t be that stupid. She just said ambiguously, “I didn’t say anything so don’t try to make anything up, alright?”
Clearing her name just like that.
No matter what happens after that, Yue Shao just has to say she never said it and that the reporters were just writing whatever they pleased, clearing her of any trouble.
She could take advantage of “Let’s Travel” and “Prime Minister Shen’s” popularity while making herself appear self-contained. It really was a good plan.
However, when Yue Shao returned to her van, the agent told her one thing.
Agent, “I’ve asked around. The people from Huarui have approached the staff of ‘Superstar Project’.”
The “Superstar Project” was created to select the most suitable female lead in Director Qin An’s eyes.
If Huarui contacted them, that means one of their artists is planning to participate.
