Patriotic omnibus My Country, My Parents <我和我的父輩> released its special trailer recently. Helmed by various big-name Chinese directors, one of its actors Leo Wu Lei (吳磊) reportedly suffered facial injuries on the set of the blockbuster.
Completed His Scenes before Hospital Visit
Set for release on Chinese National Day (October 1), Wu Lei plays a cavalry warrior who has inherited his father’s ambitions and fearlessly goes on the battlefield to protect the lives of civilians.
According to reports, tiny blood clots appeared on Wu Lei’s face from the impact of an explosion, and his eyes were nearly affected. While it was not certain what had transpired, Wu Lei did not blame crew members who felt apologetic, and even consoled them saying his injuries did not hurt at all, and attributed what happened to his execution of the scene.
Commended for professionalism
Recounting what had happened, he analyzed the take with director Wu Jing (吳京), who had been in charge of his segment. After a simple disinfection of his wounds, Wu Lei decided to continue filming so as not to affect the crew’s progress, and only headed to the hospital for treatment after that. As tiny blood spots had gathered all over his face, the gauze patches covered nearly half his face as well as his eyes!
Fans who watched the video of Wu Lei’s injury expressed anxiety for his injury and wished him a swift recovery. While some thought he had been too gung-ho and hopes he will take better care of his personal safety – he had also sustained a fall from the horse in the same film – others commended the 21-year-old for being a role model for young actors.
