Godfrey Gao to Pair Up with Qin Lan in New Romantic Drama
Qin Lan plays a single mom who meets the father of her child years after getting pregnant in her youth.
Chinese actress Qin Lan’s (秦嵐) popularity has spiked since her performance as Empress Fucha in breakout hit Story of Yanxi Palace <延禧攻略>. Although the leads have yet to be officially announced, Qin Lan is said to be starring in a new drama titled We Are All Alone <怪你過分美麗>. Besides the interesting storyline of the book-to-drama adaptation, the lead actor is reportedly Taiwanese actor Godfrey Gao (高以翔) of Remembering Lichuan <遇見王瀝川> fame.
Plot to Touch on Consequences of “Compensated Dating”
In the novel by Chinese writer Mo Zai (未再), the female lead accidentally became pregnant after a compensated dating transaction with a rich man’s son when she was 17. Joining the ranks of single moms, she re-encounters the father of her child years later in the workplace. The dual identities of the protagonist as both a single mom and also an “Iron Lady” in her entertainment career makes for a challenging role, and it is uncertain if the drama will stick wholly to the original storyline or make adjustments.
With reports of the Qin Lan-Godfrey Gao pairing, netizens are full of anticipation at the prospect of the good-looking stars playing an onscreen couple.
Godfrey is Popular With Female Audience
Standing at an impressive height of 6 feet 2 inches, Godfrey is part of “The Fashionable F4” as nicknamed by the press, along with Sphinx Ting (丁春誠), Victor Chen (陳紹誠) and Lan Jun Tian (藍鈞天).
The 2016 mainland drama Remembering Lichuan also saw Godfrey winning many female viewers over with his dreamboat good looks. According to the publicity posters released for We Are All Alone, the story will reflect women’s struggles for survival. The author Mo Zai will take on the role of planner for the series. Filming is set to start in May, and shooting confirmed to take place in Shanghai and Suzhou, among other cities.
Described as “A reflection of modern urban womenfolk”, the drama is “dedicated to beautiful women who’ve shed tears while pursuing their dreams with perseverance and pride”.
