Zhang Meng Princess Silver producer
Ice Fantasy star Zhang Meng is back with another drama although this time around, she has worked entirely behind the scenes. Princess Silver starring the ensemble cast of Sophie Zhang XueyingAarif Rahman, Jing Chao, Leo Luo Yunxi and Maggie Chen Xinyu has gotten good reception from viewers since premiering on May 15. 

Zhang Meng shared her feelings and experiences as a first-time producer. She admits that she loved the original novel when she read it 5 years ago and invited director Li Huizhu to adapt it to the small screen. The good news is that the TV version retains the main storyline and added elements of comedy.  She reports that making the script took 3 years, filming took 4 months and post production took 9 months.  

Princess Silver Sophie Zhang Aarif Rahman
While Zhang Meng is a capable actress herself, she refused to play any of the characters in Princess Silver.  She explains that any actor would want more scenes for themselves so if she took on a role, it would affect the script, the plot and ultimately go against her wish for the series to be pure and free. Instead, she's thankful to have found leads Sophie Zhang, Aarif Rahman, Jing Chao and the rest of the cast. She also revealed that Ashes of Love actor Luo Yunxi was the one who took the initiative to pick the role of Rong Qi.

Since this was her first time producing a series, it was normal that she was nervous despite giving her all.  Zhang Meng reveals that she had insomnia and would often wake up in the middle of the night thinking about whether the series will be good enough.  It came to a point where Zhang Meng had to take at most 3 sleeping pills to be able to sleep.

Zhang Meng has also been very active in post production, including dubbing, special effects and editing.  She meticulously checks for mistakes and corrects or improves them when possible.  Knowing that Princess Silver isn't a one man effort, Zhange Meng thanked everyone for making the drama come to life.

Hu Ge Cannes Red Carpet

The Cannes red carpet has seen its fair share of "internet stars" who are currently trending albeit for the wrong reasons in social media, but going back to the films and the actors that bring them to life, it's quite whimsical to see the stars themselves become star struck by their fellow artists. Makes them a wee bit more human like us, doesn't it?

Things blew up quickly for Roy Wang Yuan after Sohu Yule released an exclusive that showed him smoking a cigarette. On May 20, the actor was having a meal with Haha Farmer variety show co-stars Jia Nailiang and Yang Chaoyue when paparazzi captured footage of him smoking.

Gao Yuanyuan and Mark Chao have just welcomed the arrival of their baby girl. Being married for five years, it's not uncommon for the celebrity couple to be asked questions about having kids to which they would coolly respond all in due time. During an interview featuring women in their thirties, Gao Yuanyuan who is 39 talked about having a right time for everything. 
Actress Cecilia Cheung has been through a lot since she debuted in showbiz at 18 years old. Probably the most shocking event in her life was when her name was dragged into Edison Chen's photo scandal way back in 2008 when several nude pictures that Edison took of women he was with in the past were leaked online. With Cecilia being one of them, the scandal greatly affected her reputation and her career.
