Yang Mi in talks for Legend of Fuyao



Yang Mi (Sword of Legends) is likely going to be the lead for Legend of Fuyao 扶摇皇后, an upcoming Chinese drama based on a novel by Tian Xia Gui Yuan 天下归元 who also wrote Rise of the Phoenix.

However, her casting is not without controversy due to rumors that her addition effectively pushes out Joe Chen (Swordsman). Nevertheless, Joe Chen's camp has denied the news and clarified that they were never approached in the first place. Besides, she'll have her hands full with Empress Dugu

If Yang Mi confirms and if in fact the drama sticks to the novel, it will be her second time playing a time traveler. Fuyao is miles apart from the candy roles that Yang Mi is accustomed to playing, which is why people question whether she has the acting chops to pull off such a powerful female character. 

Word is out that the male lead may turn out to be William Chan (The Mystic Nine) and filming is expected to begin May 2017.

  2. After seeing her as BQ, I wouldn't say she is accustomed to play candy roles. While she did well as Susu, she was at her best as BQ and her action scenes are good. I like that she is challenging herself, and doesn't live on what people expected of her.
    I also noticed she was names one of the "Four Dan" twice. It's quite impressive and show that this girl isn't stop striving.

    1. lol i can't agree more even tho I am the one who wrote it in the first place but that was before Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms aired. I am a really big fan of hers now, she was spectacular as BQ and SS.

  3. Heck, I fell for her just by one look at her Si Yin in Ten Miles of Peach Blossom. In a sense she really got me at hello.
    Her Su Su and Bai Qian just killed me.
    I really look forward to her Fu Yao.
