Currently starring in fantasy drama Lost You Forever <長相思>, Yang Zi’s (楊紫) popularity reached new heights and gained increased public attention. Unfortunately, some netizens left discouraging comments about the actress’ looks that prompted Yang Zi to respond, “I have seen the criticism on my looks and I accepted them.”
Yang Zi demonstrated her high EQ and added, “It’s funny to say that I only play beautiful characters and it’s interesting to think about it. It doesn’t matter. As long as you are confident and use your work to show others that you are serious about your acting, that is enough.”
Yang Zi continued, “I also want to tell all the girls that confidence is the most beautiful. Everyone is unique and there is no one else who looks like you. That is something to be proud of. You don’t have to look at other people’s scenery. Work hard to walk on your own path.”
Netizens Discuss the Actor’s Salary
Recently the salary for the cast of Lost You Forever was leaked on the internet and became a hot topic. It was discovered that Zhang Wan Yi (張晚意) earned about 1.8 million Chinese yuan while Deng Wei (邓为) earned 5 million Chinese yuan. Added together, the two actor’s salaries were considerably less than Yang Zi’s salary of 20 million Chinese yuan.
Many netizens were upset for Zhang Wan Yi and wrote, “How is that possible for Zhang Wan Yi playing the male lead?” However, some netizens pointed out that Zhang Wan Yi had little star power prior to filming Lost You Forever and was only marginally recognized for his role in Awakening Age <覺醒年代>.
As for Deng Wei, the actor did not film any major production prior to Lost You Forever. Despite a slow start to his career, Deng Wei has since gained millions of fans.
