Recently, VanNess Wu, Ady An, and others were acting in a court of law scene in Taipei for idol drama, Autumn's Concerto. VanNess Wu, who plays a lawyer, said laughingly that for this 12 page long court scene he was memorizing lines till he was afraid. He even dreamt that he was a lawyer in court helping a friend file a lawsuit.
In the drama, for Liang Mucheng (Ady An)'s innocence, Sheng De University called for a "Truth Investigation Court." Ren Guangxi (VanNess Wu) served as Liang Mucheng's lawyer in the court battle against Ah Cai Shu's (Chen Muyi) lawyer, Xu Fangguo (Zheng Youjie).
Due to VanNess Wu not being to familiar with written Chinese, plus the inclusion of some proper nouns, Director Chen Huiling was very heartwarming. She read the lines out loud and recorded it as a mp3 to give to VanNess Wu. Whenever he had a single moment, VanNess Wu would take it out to listen to. Even when he is in the gym, he would bring his iPod.
VanNess Wu said that he prepared for almost two months for this scene, memorizing lines till he was afraid. He even dreamt that he was a lawyer in court helping a friend file a lawsuit. This twelve page scene took three days to film. VanNess Wu said that while he was a bit afraid during filming, he felt very accomplished after the filming. It was a breakthrough for this acting career. Merely six years later in the drama, his first appearance is in a scene where is he also helping someone file a lawsuit. VanNess Wu is already waiting in cold sweat.
*Clap Clap* Good job, Van Ness, good job! You did it! You got her innocence back (with the huge help from Flower Boy, this storyline cannot survive without Flower Boy, he's a life saver)! The director is also very dedicated to producing a good show and treats her actors/actresses really well. She actually spent time to record Van Ness' lines to make the process a little easier for Van Ness. And he spent TWO MONTHS preparing for this scene!!! Such dedication! Hard work pays off in the end! Good Job!
