Xu Xiyan understood that they were suspicious of her abilities, especially because of her overly feminine dress.
But she was already there; she wouldn’t take no for an answer. Xu Xiyan would do whatever it took to secure the role.
Without a second thought, she threw Mr. Xing over the table and pinned him down.
“So, am I capable enough to play the character?”
“Yes! Of course!” he said, shocked. “That’s more than enough!”
The throw had been so clean and precise, Mr. Xing didn’t even have time to react.
After Xu Xiyan let him go, Mr. Xing said, “fill in the form, and then go change your clothes.”
On the form, Xu Xiyan wrote Jing Xi under the “name” section.
That would be her stage name. The family name Jing was her mother’s. From that day onward, the entertainment industry would know her by that name: Jing Xi.
Free from the Xu family, she would represent herself from then on. Any success or failure would be of no concern to the Xu family, just as the glory or decline of the Xu family would be of no interest to her.
After completing the form, Xu Xiyan changed into the dark uniform of a policewoman.
Everything about her changed as she let go of every last bit of her strong, elegant aura.
The staff was stunned by her look, thinking why would an outstanding actress like her remain a mere double? What a pity!
In the scene where Xu Xiyan would be playing a double, the heroine would be chasing after a wanted fugitive. She would have to jump from an abandoned house onto the roof of a car, and then roll to the ground from there.
The director wanted the scene to be more impactful. So he had requested that the actress not equip herself with any safety wires. In light of the risk, the lead actress, Huang Yanran, proposed the idea of using a double instead.
As the camera began recording, Xu Xiyan ran from the far end of the house, jumping off the eaves, landing on the car, and rolling onto the ground. The scene was shot in its entirety, just one take.
But her face had been captured by the camera. With a double, this should never happen.
The director requested to reshoot the scene. Once again, Xu Xiyan performed all the moves brilliantly, but this time she did not act with the proper timing, and thus another take was necessary.
On the third take, she adjusted her angle and timing, completing even more dangerous moves, while avoiding having her face captured. Finally, the director was happy with the shot, shouting “cut!”
There were only two scenes that required Xu Xiyan to act as a double. After completing both of the scenes, she took a bottle of water and claimed the day’s pay. When she returned to Fang Xiaocheng’s car, she was greeted by Ying Bao’s crying face.
