Chinese drama Love Like the Galaxy <星漢燦爛> is one of the summer’s biggest hits, with viewers crediting Leo Wu Lei’s (吳磊) layered performance as well as his chemistry with costar Rosy Zhao Lusi (趙露思).
When asked how he had prepared for his role as General Ling Buyi, Wu Lei said he read the original novel closely and used it as guidance for his onscreen interpretation. Reading the novel provided him with greater clarity and understanding of his character’s inner thoughts, which inspired him to add in more attentive details to make his character more well-fleshed. He would also add changes to his lines after consulting with the director.
When the scene of him picking up Zhao Lusi with one arm went viral on the Internet, Wu Lei revealed he had trained and did a lot of strengthening exercises to prepare for filming. He said humbly, “I only have the strength of what an average man should have,” and added Zhao Lusi is very light in weight.
Although he is only 22 years old, Wu Lei is starting to show signs of stress from filming. Having issues with his hair, he laughed and said his hair is currently not cooperating and urged everyone to pay special attention to their health.
