Mainland Chinese actress Cecilia Liu (劉詩詩) recently revealed that she is not at all concerned about her and husband Nicky Wu’s (吳奇隆) upcoming wedding ceremony, which they plan to hold in February or March of next year.
At a recent press conference for her drama, If Love Like This <如果可以這樣愛>, Cecilia took to the stage alongside male leads Tong Dawei (佟大為) and Jeff Bao (保劍鋒). Although Dawei and Jeff performed various ways to win over Cecilia, from reciting romantic poetry to preparing delicious desserts, neither could hold a candle to her real-life husband, Nicky Wu.
Since Nicky recently shared that he and Cecilia plan to hold their wedding ceremony early next year, reporters rushed to ask the bride for her thoughts. However, Cecilia expressed that she was not concerned about the wedding’s details and happily added, “I’ll wait for [Nicky] to surprise me.”
During the press conference, Dawei and Jeff mentioned how Nicky would often visit Cecilia on set, each time bringing lots of snacks for her and the crew to enjoy. One time, Dawei shared with excitement, Nicky even brought fried chicken and lemonade. Both Dawei and Jeff plan to attend the wedding ceremony.
If Love Like This Slated for 2016 Release
Directed by Wang Lei (王雷), If Love Like This is based on a novel by Qian Xun Qian Xun (千尋千尋), who is also serving as the drama’s screenwriter. It tells the story of international pianist Geng Mochi (Tong Dawei), who initially butts heads with a seemingly crazy TV hostess named Bai Kao’er (Cecilia Liu) but ends up falling for her.
If Love Like This features a change in image for Tong Dawei, since many of his previous roles have been considerate and protective men, whereas Geng Mochi is more proud and unconventional. Dawei also shared that even though he does not resemble the character as described in the original novel, he is not concerned that fans of the book will be opposed.
“If we had filmed the drama according to the original book, it wouldn’t have passed the censors,” he explained. “The setup now is extremely wonderful too, and it is very moving.”
Jeff Bao, who plays Bai Kao’er’s rebound Qi Shuli, joked that because his real-life romantic life has always gone smoothly, he was quite happy to portray a character with unrequited longing. “I was finally able to experience the taste of being the fallback guy,” he said with a laugh.
If Love Like This began filming in October and is expected to be released next year.
