If you have been following AVV for a while, you know I’ve been watching these child actors (from the program Star of Tomorrow) since last year and they continue to impress one project after another. The latest one which aired a month ago is their kiddie version of The Three Kingdoms period. I think the topic is a too heavy for child actors but they look so in characters, it’s mind-blowing. Maybe because they’re still kids so trying to look pretty on cameras isn’t on their agenda yet, hence the 100% immersion. Adult actors, be careful!
After five grueling months of filming, ancient drama Princess Agents with Zhao Li Ying, Shawn Dou, and Lin Geng Xin have wrapped up, with her being the last of the leads on set today. She was in the middle of filming before leaving to attend the 3rd Wenrong Awards Ceremony in her character wardrobe and then heading back to set to finish up. This awards is not big and still new on the scene but it’s nice her other characters get a spot in the limelight other than Qian Gu. I know right?! It came on the right day for our little girl too! =D
Interesting direction. Hunan’s remake of The Legend of White Snake aired last week to successful ratings, providing hope to their other serial remakes such as Third Sisters Liu, The White Haired Girl, etc…. They are using this chance to introduce potential child actors found through the program Star of Tomorrow. Much as it is a tribute to classic television works, it also aims to educate the younger actors and audience of traditional customs, without putting pressure and tailored training to the batch of fresh faces and allowing them to act as they feel. They are between the ages of 6-12. When I say potential, the program director clarified that the kids chosen don’t necessarily go into acting as a career. It’s sorta like a summer program for most of them.
