Xiao Zhan (肖戰) and Ren Min’s (任敏) The Longest Promise <玉骨谣> has dominated ratings since its release. Although Ren Min’s performance received mixed reviews, the drama undeniably increased her recognition levels. Grateful to work with Xiao Zhan, the 23-year-old actress shares her filming experiences.
In past dramas, her crying scenes were short and sporadic. However, her crying scenes in The Longest Promise were longer, more intense, and required several pages of dialogue, causing Ren Min to feel distraught and experience emotional exhaustion.
On collaborating with Xiao Zhan, Ren Min revealed the actor is actually a very considerate person. She recalled seeing Xiao Zhan’s assistant holding a large stool for him to use on the filming set, which seemed inconvenient to haul around. Ren Min had a small stool of the same style, and decided to gift it to Xiao Zhan. Although the small stool was obviously too small for his tall figure, he cherished the gift nonetheless and continued to use it for the next two months without complaining. Reminiscing the incident, Ren Min was all smiles and expressed that it was quite a comedic, but endearing memory.
