Chapter 118 It’s Jodie’s Turn To Pick up the Unwanted Toys
Harold and Freya returned home with painful injuries from being hit. Unable to bear the pain, they went to the hospital for a check–up in the middle of the night. Harold’s injuries were apparent, but the examination showed they were not serious. Freya’s face was still slightly swollen before the check- but it had gone down by then. Despite their futile struggle. they had to endure the pain and sleepless. nights at home.
Titus and Jodic also couldn’t sleep that night.
The next day. Simone went to the office, and Lisa knocked on the door and entered. She handed a form to Simone.
“Miss Gray, there have been many invitations for scripts and variety shows lately. I have organized them for you to review.”
Simone took the form and said, “Okay. Let me see
The form listed various variety shows and scripts, along with the directors and their specific invitations to Simone or Fiona. Everything was recorded clearly
With Lisa by her side, Simone felt more at ease.
Most resources actively contracting to her were invitations for Simone on the form. On the other hand, the invitations for Fiona were mostly for marriage–themed scripts. There were also two variety shows about relationships.
Simone asked Lisa, “Do you think these resources suit me and Fiona?” Lisa was attentive and had good. comprehension skills. Simone had an idea of grooming her into a top–notch agent and bringing in new artists for the studio in the future. They had discussed this before, and Lisa had considered this question while organizing the information.
She smiled and replied, “I don’t think there are any suitable scripts or variety shows for Fiona. If she accepts them, not only will it consume her current popularity, but it may also limit her acting range and typecast her.”
Simone nodded and said. “That’s what I think too. Reject all the scripts and variety shows looking for Fiona. I plan to fight for her to get the leading role in a spy war film.”
Lisa knew Simone’s plan and was also interested in becoming an agent. She would first fulfill her role as an assistant and continue to learn. So, she took the initiative to gather information about the new dramas being prepared recently.
“Are you referring to Leyla, who caused harm to Fiona in the previous drama?” Although that drama
spy war film, the male lead was a trendy actor known for his acting skills. Many veteran actors were the wolved, making it highly anticipated.
While popularity was significant, audiences now paid more attention to acting skills and plot when watching dramas and movies. Many internet celebrities were also working hard to improve their acting skille and taking progress.
Simone said, “Yes. The director has already terminated the contract with that person, so I plan to
intercept and offer the role to Fiona”
Leyla, who suddenly gained popularity, was terminated by Gray Entertainment. The director couldn’t let such a tainted artist become the female lead. This drama was Scmbag No. 2x way of making connections for Leyla to become the female lead. Now that she had been terminated, Gray Entertainment was preparing to promote another actress.
Simone had read the script and found it a great test of her acting skills. The role was very prominent. and there was hope that it would bring Fiona back to the ranks of top actresses. So, it was necessary to intercept and take the role.
Lisa fully supported this and said. That’s a good idea. Secure this role and perform well. Not only will it embarrass Leyla and Gray Entertainment again, but it will also greatly help Fiona’s acting career.”
Simone asked again, “What do you think? Are there any suitable resources for me?” Lisa momentarily thought. The film script about the educated youth’s mother looks good. However, the subject matter is bit cold, and the box office will likely not be high. There’s also that fantasy drama directed by a well- known director, with a dramatic script with some highlights. With a large investment, the post- production can be done very well. I think it has the potential to become a hit.”
Then, she changed the subject and said honestly. “But the male lead for this drama has already been signed by Leon On Jodie’s side, there is also an intention to cast her as the female lead. Titus fought for her. If it weren’t for the previous incident, her role as the female lead would have already been confirmed.”
Simone noticed that Lisa was very talented and had tried to understand and study. Everything she said. was on point.
“For the film about the educated youth, you can contact the director and tell them I’ve accepted it. This was the award–winning film I acted in during my previous life. I liked this script, and I will perform. even better this time.”
“Great.” Lisa was somewhat surprised but also felt that this was Simone’s style of doing things. She thought momentarily and asked. “What about the fantasy drama? The director’s intention is for you to choose either the female lead or the second female lead. The rest can be given to Jodie.”
Simone smiled. “They’re quite direct.” The meaning was clear. Besides casting, they also wanted to use the relationship between the three to generate some buzz. This was a regular operation, straightforwardly stating their intentions without causing any resentment. It showed sincerity, as they let her choose the female lead or second female lead first and gave the rest to Jodie. It must be said this was a slap in Jodie’s face.
I’m planning to take the second female lead role, but the script should be performed according to the current setting without intentionally weakening or changing the second female lead’s storyline. Ask the director if it’s possible: if so, I’ll sign.”
In her previous–life, Jodie became popular in variety shows and immediately took on this fantasy drats. Because of its high production quality, the famous director and the leading actor. Leon Foster, were involved, and the script was also good, so this drama became a hit. Although Jodie’s acting skills Were average, with the support of Leon and Titus, bez character was made more likable, and she also hesame popular On the other hand, the actress whod the second female lead at that time did not Landin from the popularity and was also heavily criticized online for “bullying Jodie
In the drama setting, she was overshadowed by Jodie
Furthermore, due to the support from Titus and the Gray Family, the director requested the screenwriter to make significant changes to the storyline of the second female lead
Instead of portraying the character’s aura, it made her unlikable and became a stepping stone for the protagonist’s “beauty”
However, Simone genuinely liked this character.
This drama revolves around a cold and aloof immortal who deeply loves his wife, and the female lead is Jojo, a character created by Jodie in the variety show.
In the previous life, this movie downplayed the identity of the second female lead and focused on highlighting the cold–heartedness of the immortal. However, Jojo’s charm moved him, and the focus shifted to his love for his wife.
Due to the unfavorable changes made to the second female lead, she appeared as a deranged witch and a malicious supporting character.
But in reality, the original identity of the second female lead was the wife of the immortal protagonist before he joined the immortal sect in the mortal world.
She was also the wife who was killed by the immortal.
When the immortal killed his wife, heaven granted her a glimmer of hope, allowing her to survive and allowing her to enter the demonic path.
With a clear sense of love and hate towards her ex–husband, she naturally sought revenge and wanted to kill him justifiably.
Although the heavens favored the male and female leads and ultimately were not killed, they left at profound impression on people.
Simone liked this character because she was well–developed.
Therefore, she wanted the director to maintain the original characterization of the second female lead. as portraying it would make her outstanding and overshadow the female lead.
She aimed to highlight the pure and innocent nature of the female lead’s character.
If another actress were playing the female lead, Simone wouldn’t compete for the spotlight or nutentionally try to overshadow her.
However, if the female lead remains Jodie, she would be happy to be compared in her.
After all, thic to what fodie used to enjoy doing the most.
Jodie wanted to regain popularity through this dran so she needed to ask for her consent.
„This time, let Jodie take on what she didn’t
