“ä½ å¥½å—?”(How have you been?) asks the wardrobe guy, as I collected my suit for today’s shoot.
“è¿˜å¥½” was my reply, which directly translated should mean “still ok”.
He wagged a finger at me and said, “è¿˜å¥½å°±æ˜¯ä¸å¥½å›–”… (Still ok means not ok lor)
Pretty perceptive of him I must say, for I have been quite out of sorts over the past week.
Today I went for my first “A” role. I have been turning down a few since I got upgraded as I’ve been very busy all of a sudden. Yea, my winter kinda ended early in early December (But then again, it kinda started earlier as well). Yet, before all of you start to congratulate me, I’ll have you know that in other areas of my life, winter is still a long and harsh season. And it is perhaps because of this I’ve been feeling the blues the past week and a half.
Anyway, back to the shoot. So was it a big role? No, and like I have told you guys before, being “A” really doesn’t mean they will start handing out meaty roles on a platter. But that is not to say that this role wasn’t a challenge. My fax machine quit on me on Friday and as a result I didn’t receive my script only until midnight today! And the lines given to me were really hard to memorise (still can’t really say it smoothly even now) and to top it off, one of my lines were blurred out and I could only get a replacement copy minutes away from my shoot. Talk about being stressed out man!
But thankfully, that scene was scheduled to be done on Saturday. Today’s scene was simple enough; play boyfriend to May Phua’s character. But as simple as it sounds, it turns out I couldn’t really do a good job. The director wasn’t satisfied with our chemistry and kept saying that we were not lovey dovey enough. I am not sure if at the very end, he was satisfied with it but I did feel a little bit sheepish for not being able to pull this off easily.
On my way back, I wondered if its because I’ve been doing far too many bad guy roles that I now sucked majorly at lovey dovey ones. Qiaoyun thinks that its because I don’t find May attractive enough. On the contary, I think she looked just divine today, so that couldn’t be the reason.
Hmm, you know what? I think its because I’ve been single for far, far too long, that I think I have lost that loving feeling. Yes, that must be it.
