Chapter 446: She Deserves it
Translator: Yunyi Editor: Yunyi
The international actor was called Taka. Although, he was an American man, his features were handsome and noble like a British prince.
One of the main reasons for his popularity was because of these good looks. But, more importantly, as a youngster, he had already been classified as a versatile actor and had gained a wealth of experience. When faced with different roles, he was able to handle them with ease.
Wei An had put in a lot of effort to invite him into the cast. And of course, Mo Ting had provided some assistance behind-the-scenes.
For the sake of Tangning, he would always find a way to place the best things before her.
Because of the incident with Bai Qiusheng, Tangning's reputation in the entertainment industry had been unprecedentedly improved. After all, not many people could continue to stand tall and proud after so much hardship...
Tangning had been framed so badly that she was directly called in for a police interrogation. But, whether it was before the truth was revealed or after, she never once complained in front of the public. In fact, right after Bai Qiusheng's press conference, she once again disappeared from the limelight as she returned on set to continue filming.
"From now on, I will watch all of Tangning's films. Anything related to her, I will support unconditionally."
"I'm convinced by Tangning. She's honest with her emotions and deserves an applause for how she handled this incident."
"From now on, let's see who else can stand in Tangning's way. I'm impressed by her attitude of not attacking those that don't attack first."
"Oh! Why do I feel that Tangning is so cool. Also, I love the way that Elder Mo refreshingly taught Bai Qiusheng a lesson at the press conference. That's exactly how a senior of the industry should be. I applaud him!"
"Hai Rui is still the same Hai Rui; Mo Ting is still the same Mo Ting. From now on, I will trust in him!"
"Am I the only one that noticed that Tangning looks comfortable washing clothes and cooking? She doesn't act like she's too precious at all."
"President, statistics show that 80% of netizens support the relationship between you and madam. The madam appears to have successfully gained the public's trust," Lu Che couldn't help but smile and reveal the research results.
It was easy for an actor to be hated, but it wasn't easy to be liked. After the incident that happened, Tangning developed a high level of trust with the public.
"She deserves it." Mo Ting expected this outcome from the start, so his response was calm.
Not everyone had the persistence to be themselves, but his wife was determined.
"I think the madam has a good chance at the Fei Tian Awards this year," Lu Che expressed his appreciation for Tangning. Of course, it also contained a sense of admiration.
Because of Tangning, his perception of women changed. Women weren't all weak, they could also be strong and wise; women didn't need to depend on men, they could also support themselves.
By taking note of Tangning, he also noticed the loyal Long Jie.
Although Long Jie wasn't as smart as Tangning, she was firm, decisive and equally attracted attention.
"By the way, filming has resumed. Would the president like to visit the set?" Lu Che asked as he put down the information in his hands. The new male lead was a foreigner. Plus, he was friendly and easy-going. Was Mo Ting really not worried at all?
"Let's talk about it again in a couple days." As refilming was involved, it was certain that Tangning would end up staying late for a few days. However, Mo Ting was the person that hated seeing her suffer the most, so he couldn't bear to visit. But it didn't matter, at least Elder Mo was watching over her on set. This was probably the only benefit of his return to Beijing.
As Lu Che had followed Mo Ting for many years, he understood Mo Ting had his own considerations. So he simply smiled without another word.
As for Taka - the man with chestnut-colored hair - Mo Ting finally put down his pen at the thought of him. It would be odd if he didn't feel a little worried.
Of course, he wasn't worried that his wife would do anything. He was worried the American man would harass his wife...
In reality, it was two days later before Tangning saw Taka for the first time. As a lot of scenes had to be refilmed, Taka's first two days were mainly spent working with others.
However, she did not see him on set. Instead, she saw him in the corridor of the hotel.
The first time she lay eyes on this confident man, Tangning could sense a special presence about him. His appearance was, of course, impeccable. But, the most outstanding features, were his chestnut-colored hair and sparkling blue eyes.
He had a naturally dangerous and evil presence.
Upon seeing Tangning, Taka directly stretched out his arm to block her path. He then pushed her against the wall, trapping her between his arms and looked her up and down, "Just another old auntie."
Of course, the man said this in English as he gave a light smile.
Tangning also smiled as she stretched out her arms and pushed Taka's strong body away. She then responded in perfect English, "Yes I am, immature child."
After giving her response, Tangning walked away as Taka revealed a fascinated smile. The majority of women were mesmerized by his teasing, but Tangning did not care at all. He refused to accept this response.
Taka had participated in many films and the female lead was always mesmerized by him. How could there be someone that was completely uninterested?
Even if she was married, it didn't matter...
Soon, the day of their first scene together arrived. It was a fighting scene.
At first, Wei An wanted to introduce them to each other, but Taka quickly shook his hands, "We've met."
"You've met?" Wei An looked at them questioningly.
Tangning nodded her head quietly.
"Since that's the case, let's get started..." Wei An did not ramble. The crew had been quite stressed after the incident with Bai Qiusheng and Gu Heng, so all he wanted to do now was catch up on their progress.
This scene was the climactic fight scene of the film. Taka looked at Tangning's weak appearance and laughed. He was curious how good at martial arts Beijing women were. Since Tangning had acted so arrogant in front of him, he wondered if she had the right to act that way.
Tangning did not say much as she sat in front of the makeup table and allowed the makeup artist to do her thing. Ten minutes later, she returned on set. As Taka looked at her, he was stunned...
The Tangning at this moment had completely transformed into someone else. Wearing a wig, jeans and white sneakers, she had the strong presence of a fighter.
Taka was curious how Tangning would perform. In fact, before Wei An called for them to start, Taka continuously looked at her with a fascinated smile.
"Scene 201. Action!"
In front of the cameras, Taka started off the scene by grabbing onto Tangning's wrists and restraining her from behind. Tangning was to retaliate by jabbing his chest with her elbow.
Taka did not expect Tangning to have much strength. He didn't think she could hurt him, but it would at least not tickle. However, when Tangning actually made her move, he unexpectedly took a few steps back and let out a groan in pain...
