Chapter 1105: Well-grounded
Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations
Ye Wanwan wasn’t worried about outside factors affecting the results of this audition.
In her previous life, there must’ve been a lot of companies who wanted to install their artists as the female lead, but Peng Yuanhu would rather delay shooting for two years than use an actress he was dissatisfied with.
With Peng Yuanhu’s status in the industry, he had absolute control over the casting. Not a single outside factor could affect his decision except for the artist’s own abilities.
Other actresses left in succession after they finished their auditions, but Jiang Yanran drew a number near the end, so Ye Wanwan had to wait.
However, Ye Wanwan waited for nearly two hours, and Jiang Yanran still hadn’t come out.
Ye Wanwan was looking at her phone when a staff member wearing a cap and holding the script rushed out. He anxiously and excitedly surveyed the room before asking, “Who is Miss Wanwan?”
When Ye Wanwan heard this, she stood up from her chair. “I am.”
The staff member suspiciously examined Ye Wanwan and asked with furrowed brows, “You’re Ye Wanwan?”
“I am,” Ye Wanwan repeated.
The staff member was startled briefly. “Didn’t you come to audition?”
When he first noticed the girl, he thought she was a student who also came to audition.
“I came to keep a friend company,” Ye Wanwan answered.
“Is your friend Jiang Yanran?” the staff member asked.
“Then come with me!” the staff member ordered without saying anything more.
Ye Wanwan’s eyes glinted. “Okay.”
The staff member hastily led Ye Wanwan inside.
In the audition hall, the director, assistant director, producer, screenwriter, and investors were all present. Jiang Yanran was reservedly standing in front of a long table while the producer kept asking her all types of questions.
“Miss Jiang, what pay are you asking for?”
“Miss Jiang, we’re requesting that you start on with the cast and crew in three days, do you have a problem with that?”
“Miss Jiang, you should know about the situation with this film. It’s been delayed for a long time, so we hope you can look over this contract as soon as possible…”
Jiang Yanran was evidently unprepared to deal with this sort of situation, discomfort clear on her face. “I’m sorry, I’m not too experienced about these matters. Can you please wait until my friend comes and directly speak with her?”
When Jiang Yanran heard footsteps coming from the doorway, she looked up in pleasant surprise like she had seen a savior. “Wanwan!”
Ye Wanwan walked toward Jiang Yanran and hugged her in comfort.
“Wanwan, I got it!” Jiang Yanran was flushed from excitement.
Although Ye Wanwan had already guessed that when she heard the producer’s questions, she was still emotional when she heard Jiang Yanran telling her outright. “Congratulations, Yanran!”
Because of her family background and talent, Jiang Yanran had superb fundamentals from a young age, so she was well-grounded even though she didn’t have practical experience.
“Wanwan, you guessed correctly! The scene I drew was the one where the female protagonist danced under the moonlight after she lost her memories!” Jiang Yanran said excitedly.
The producer looked at Ye Wanwan and asked with slightly furrowed brows, “Miss Jiang, this is the friend you mentioned?”
“That’s right, Producer Wang!” Jiang Yanran nodded. She had recovered her calm since Ye Wanwan was next to her.
“Hello, Producer Wang!” Ye Wanwan calmly greeted the producer. “You can directly talk to me about any issues related to the contract and shooting.”
