The Birth of An Actor is a new show on Zhejiang TV featuring a crop of actors and actresses in acting challenges against a fellow actor each week. The judges are Song Dan Dan, Zhang Zi Yi, and Liu Ye. Actor Zhang Guo Li serves as the MC. Acting is still subjective in my opinion so this show is a platform for fiery discussion among netizens, fans, and non-fans alike. The always hot-topic individual Zheng Shuang is in the first week, pitted against Ren Jia Lun and Song Dan Dan, while she wins against Allen, she loses to the veteran actress, respectively. In the short play, Zheng Shuang plays Zhang Zi Yi’s character in her big screen’s debut The Road Home, directed by Zhang Yi Mou. Other contestants in the same episode are Zhai Tian Lin, Yu Shao Qun, Huang Lu, and Liu Yun.
