Chapter 27: You Thought Too Much Too


TL: Resonance

    日光很亮,两个人就这样木头般站在秋千边上,气氛一时有点诡异。

The sun was very bright. The two of them stood like wooden blocks beside the swing and the atmosphere was a little strange.

    阮夜笙低了头,跟着又抬眸瞥了奚墨一眼,看见奚墨在旁边下意识搓了搓手,似乎是想搓掉刚才那突如其来的尴尬。奚墨那脸色也是十分的一言难尽,阮夜笙偏过头,眼里的水波被阳光一照,有那么一瞬的晃荡,不过依旧还是站在那,不说不动,只继续拿一双含春般双眼盯着她。

Ruan Yesheng lowered her head, then looked up again and glanced at Xi Mo. She saw Xi Mo rubbing her hands subconsciously at the side, seemingly wanting to rub off the sudden embarrassment just now. Xi Mo’s expression was also very difficult to describe. Ruan Yesheng turned her head. The water in her eyes seemed to sway for a moment after being shone by the sun. But she still stood there without speaking nor moving, and just continued staring at Xi Mo with a pair of spring-like eyes.

    奚墨被这种眼神看得心里发毛,只感觉阮夜笙整个人的目光都突然黏到她身上去了,手里也莫名发起烫来。

Xi Mo felt goosebump after being looked at by those eyes. She felt that the whole of Ruan Yesheng’s sight was suddenly sticking to her body and her hand also felt inexplicably hot.

    过了会,为了打破这种诡异的气氛,她只好低声说:“你没事吧?”

After a while, for the sake of breaking this strange atmosphere, she could only say with a low voice, “Are you okay?”

    她这声音实在太低了,就好像是被逼出来的,与此同时那边林启堂在扩音器里大声问:“你们俩没事吧!”

Her voice was just too low, it was as if it was forced out. At the same time, Lin Qitang at the other side asked loudly into the loudspeaker, “Are the two of you okay?”

    扩音器里林启堂高分贝的声音自然盖过了奚墨的这声问。

Lin Qitang’s loud voice from the loudspeaker naturally covered Xi Mo’s question.

    “没事的,一个不小心没注意。”阮夜笙朝林启堂示意:“林导,继续吧。”

“We’re okay, just a moment of carelessness.” Ruan Yesheng motioned towards Lin Qitang, “Director Lin, let’s continue.”

    两个工作人员过来看情况,确定没有问题,又下去了,林启堂说:“刚才那小段剪掉,从定厄那句台词开始,把后面一点补拍一下,这条就过了,大家准备一下!”

Two staff members came over to check the situation. After making sure that there was no problem, they went back. Lin Qitang said, “Cut away that portion just now. We will start from Ding E’s line. We will re-record the back portion and this scene is done. Everyone get ready!”

    阮夜笙整理了下服饰,端端庄庄地坐回了秋千,奚墨也走到她身后,还原之前拍摄时的站位。

Ruan Yesheng tidied her apparel and sat back on the swing dignifiedly. Xi Mo also walked behind her and returned back to her position during the previous filming.

    “我没事。”阮夜笙微微垂了头,背对着轻声说。

“I’m fine.” Ruan Yesheng lowered her head slightly and said softly with her back facing Xi Mo.

    奚墨面色一滞,立刻明白她这是对自己之前那句问话迟来的回应,倒也没说什么。

Xi Mo’s expression froze for a moment. Then, she immediately understood that this was a late response to her previous question and didn’t say anything.

    林启堂说声开始,又再度开拍了。

Lin Qitang said to start and the filming started again.

    她们两人都是演技随手拈来的人,奚墨一直都在拍戏,当然不用多说,场记板一打,转瞬就可以进入状态。阮夜笙虽然中间那么多年都没拍过什么作品,但是看得出她平常一直都没有懈怠,纵然没戏拍,也一直保持着学习和训练的习惯,入戏也很快,这场小小风波一下子就消散了,拍摄迅速回归正轨。

Both of them are people who can immediately start acting. Xi Mo has been filming all this time, so it was needless to say. Once the clapboard is clapped, she can instantly become the character.  Although Ruan Yesheng hasn’t filmed anything for so many years, one can see that she has never slackened. Even though she never filmed all this while, she has always maintained the habit of learning and training and was able to get into character very quickly. This small disturbance was quickly resolved and the shooting quickly returned to the right track.

    冯唐唐和那个化妆师排排坐,顾栖松棒槌一样站在旁边,三个人一边吃零食,一边观看。中途冯唐唐看看表,走开了,她得负责她“奚姐”的晚饭,顾清明让她为奚墨安排小灶,她不敢怠慢,每一餐都必须提早去准备。

Feng Tangtang and the makeup artist sat in a row, while Gu Qisong stood beside them like a wooden club. The three of them ate snacks while watching. Midway through, Feng Tangtang looked at her watch and left. She was responsible for her “Sister Xi’s” dinner. Lu Qingming had asked her to help Xi Mo prepare better meals and she dares not neglect. Every meal must be prepared early.

    下午的拍摄很顺利,制定的计划都按时完成了,这也得益于阮夜笙和奚墨的相互配合,她们重拍的次数很少,工作人员心里都挺感激的。拍到五点半暂时收工,众人陆续去吃晚饭,脸上都挂着疲态。

The shooting in the afternoon went smoothly, and all the plans made were completed on time. This is also due to the cooperation between Ruan Yesheng and Xi Mo. They rarely had to reshoot, and the staff are very grateful in their hearts. They continued until 5.30pm before stopping temporarily. Everyone went for dinner one after another and fatigue can be seen on their faces.

    统筹给的安排表里有夜戏,要一直拍到夜里十一点,阮夜笙拿着剧本坐在休息椅上,为晚上做准备,剧本最终却并没有翻几页。

There is a night scene in the schedule given by the production coordinator, and it will be filmed until eleven o’clock at night. Ruan Yesheng held the script and sat on the resting chair, wanting to make preparations for the night’s filming. However, she barely turned a few pages of the script in the end.

    她想起了白天那只死鸡的事,面色有点凝重,一直在那发呆。

She thought of the dead chicken incident during the day. Her face was a bit solemn, and she was in a daze.

    难道是那边的人么?

Could it be the people from that side?

    为什么会选这个时候?那边那么久都没动静,突然来了这么一出死鸡恐吓,倒幼稚得有点不像那边的风格了,不过那边诡谲变换,遮遮掩掩的,也许的确什么奇怪的招式都敢使出来?

Why did they choose this time? There hasn’t been any movement for so long, and suddenly there is such a dead chicken threat, which is a bit childish and not like their style. But they always have strange changes and are always hiding. Maybe they really do dare to make all kinds of strange moves?

    现在自己和奚墨换身体了,那边必然要盯着奚墨下手。

Now that she and Xi Mo have changed their bodies, that side would certainly make their move on Xi Mo.

    阮夜笙突然感觉有点烦躁,她平常是不轻易将自己的不悦放在脸上的人,现在也难免蹙起眉,指尖揉在剧本页上,揉出浅浅的褶皱来,眼神幽冷。

Ruan Yesheng suddenly felt a little irritable. Even though she is usually a person who doesn’t show her displeasure on her face easily, she couldn’t help but frown now. Her fingers kneaded the script pages causing light creases to be formed, and her eyes were cold.

    “奚姐,吃饭了。”冯唐唐捧了几层餐盒,在旁边轻声细语。

“Sister Xi, dinner is ready.” Feng Tangtang held several layers of lunch boxes and whispered softly beside her.

    阮夜笙正在沉思,随意抬了头,冯唐唐一看到她那冷到冰窖里的眼神,吓得手里的餐盒差点掉了。

Ruan Yesheng was currently deep in thought. When she casually looked up, what Feng Tangtang saw were her cold eyes, causing her to almost drop the lunch boxes in her hands. 

    以前奚姐虽然冷冰冰的,毕竟习惯了,也从来不会在她面前露出这样让她陌生的神色的。

Although Sister Xi was cold before, she was used to it after all, and she would never show such an unfamiliar look in front of her.

    “哦,糖糖啊。”阮夜笙回过神,心里也对吓到冯唐唐有些过意不去,不过脸色故意端着,不咸不淡地道了声。

“Oh, Tangtang.” Ruan Yesheng returned to her senses and felt a little sorry for scaring Feng Tangtang, but she deliberately maintained her expression and said indifferently.

    冯唐唐:“……”

Feng Tangtang: “…”

    虽然早上奚姐说以后要叫自己糖糖,她已经有心理准备,不过现在听了,感觉和被凌迟也没什么大区别。

Sister Xi said in the morning that she would call her Tangtang in the future, so she was already mentally prepared. But now that she heard it, she felt that it was no different from being subjected to Lingchi.

    “你放着吧。”阮夜笙随手把剧本搁在一旁:“一起吃?”

“Put it down.” Ruan Yesheng put the script aside: “Let’s eat together?”

    “不,不用了,我有晚饭的,待会就过去吃。”冯唐唐又觉得受宠若惊,边手脚麻利地把盛各色饭菜的餐盒摆在阮夜笙面前,边说:“晚餐我给你弄得比较清淡,对了,下午我请厨房的师傅买了一只鸡回来炖,正宗的走地土鸡,一丁点饲料都不吃的,特别补。”

“No, no need. I have dinner, I’ll eat it later.” Feng Tangtang felt flattered yet fearful once again. She swiftly placed the lunch boxes containing various kinds of food in front of Ruan Yesheng and said, “I’ve made a light meal for you for dinner. Oh right. In the afternoon, I asked the chef in the kitchen to buy a chicken back to cook. It’s an authentic natural chicken that never ate a single fodder. It’s especially nutritious.”

    听到鸡那个字,阮夜笙想起那只死状可怖的死鸡,就开始感觉不适了,等看到冯唐唐揭开汤盒,清透汤汁底下裹着酥烂的鸡肉,那肉被炖得有些惨白,阮夜笙顿时有点想吐。

Upon hearing the word chicken, Ruan Yesheng thought of the dead chicken who died a horrible death and began to feel unwell. When she saw Feng Tangtang open the soup container, the soft chicken could be seen under the clear soup. The meat was cooked to pale white. Ruan Yesheng suddenly felt like vomiting. 

    冯唐唐看到她的脸色,停下来,小心翼翼道:“奚姐,你是不是……不想吃鸡肉啊?”

Seeing her expression, Feng Tangtang stopped and asked cautiously: “Sister Xi, is it that… you don’t want to eat chicken?”

    “没有。”阮夜笙心底不想伤了这块糖的好意,一看这鸡汤就费了不少神,只好揉揉眉心,淡道:“只是有点累,麻烦你了。”

“It’s not that.” Ruan Yesheng didn’t want to hurt this candy’s[1] good intention. Just looking at the chicken soup took Ruan Yesheng a lot of energy, so she rubbed the bridge of her nose and said calmly: “I’m just a little tired, sorry to bother you.”

    本来拍戏扮演邓绥就够她疲惫的,结果暂时收工了还要继续端着架子扮演奚墨,一天中十几个小时都脱不了精分,此时此刻她也觉得有点无可奈何。

Acting as Deng Sui for filming was already tiring enough for her, but she had to continue acting as Xi Mo even when they are taking a temporary break.  She had to spend more than half the day acting as someone else. At this moment, she also felt a little helpless.

    “不,不麻烦!”冯唐唐说话都磕巴了:“晚上还有夜戏,到时候会更累,奚姐你赶紧喝点鸡汤补补。”

“No, you’re not bothering me at all!” Feng Tangtang was almost stammering. “There’s still a night scene later and it will get even more tiring. Sister Xi, hurry and have some chicken soup to supplement yourself.”

    阮夜笙道:“好,你也去吃饭吧。”

Ruan Yesheng said, “Okay, you go and eat too.”

    冯唐唐点点头,说声待会她会过来收拾,就离开了。

Feng Tangtang nodded and said that she would come to clean up later, and then left.

    静了片刻,阮夜笙看看那盒鸡汤,实在没胃口,拨到一旁,随便就着其它的菜吃了点。

After a moment of silence, Ruan Yesheng looked at the box of chicken soup. She really didn’t have an appetite for that, so she set it aside and just ate some other dishes.

    剧组工作忙辛苦,晚饭时间转眼一过,又接近夜戏开拍。场景还是在邓府,灯光道具师们正忙着布置,片场灯光乱晃,或明或暗,阮夜笙补完妆,靠在那默背台词。

The crew’s work is busy and tiring. Dinner time passed in a blink of an eye and it was almost time to start filming again. The scene is still at the Deng’s mansion. The lighting and props technicians are busy setting up. The lights on the set swayed about, some bright and some dark. Ruan Yesheng finished touching up her makeup and leaned back to memorise her script.

    即使她白天拍摄没出什么问题,表面云淡风轻的,其实心底还是或多或少有点紧张的,尤其是和奚墨对戏,她几乎是打起了十二分精神准备,一有空闲就看剧本。

Even though she didn’t have any problems with the filming during the day and looked as if things were going smoothly for her, she was in fact still more or less nervous from the bottom of her heart. It was especially so when she had to act with Xi Mo. She was always working at 120% and would look at the script whenever she had time.

    感到面前有人过来,投下阴影,阮夜笙的目光从剧本上抬起来。

Someone approached from the front and casted a shadow on her. Ruan Yesheng lifted her eyes from the script.

    灯光晃过她的脸,也晃过奚墨长发,两人在那明暗变换中相互看着。

The light moved past her face as well as Xi Mo’s long hair. The two of them looked at each other at where light and shadow met.

    “找我有事啊?”阮夜笙笑了。

“You’re looking for me?” Ruan Yesheng smiled.

    在别人面前她都得披着面具装高冷,也就只有在知根知底的奚墨面前她才不需要遮掩,想笑就笑。

She has to put on a mask and pretend to be cold in front of others. Only in front of Xi Mo who knows their secret does she not have to cover up and can smile whenever she wants to.

    这种自由让她浑身舒畅。

This freedom makes her feel comfortable.

    “你让冯唐唐送炖鸡给我吃的?”奚墨语调平平,听不出她具体什么语气,不过听着也不像生气。

“You asked Feng Tangtang to give me chicken soup?” Xi Mo’s tone was flat. Ruan Yesheng couldn’t tell what tone she was using, but it didn’t sound angry.

    阮夜笙抿唇一笑,没说话。

Ruan Yesheng pursed her lips and smiled but didn’t say anything.

    果然糖糖是疼自己的,给她“奚姐”炖了汤,还不忘偷偷捎一份给自己。

Sure enough, Tangtang dotes on her. She made soup for her “Sister Xi”, but also didn’t forget to secretly give ‘herself’ a portion.

    可惜这份情要让奚墨代领了,看起来她还很不乐意。

Unfortunately, Xi Mo would have to receive this care and concern on her behalf and she doesn’t seem quite happy about it.

    奚墨说:“她说她给你炖了鸡,分了一份给我,是不是你让她来的。你觉得我白天看过那只死鸡惨状,晚上还有胃口再吃鸡肉么?”

Xi Mo said, “She said that she made you chicken soup and gave me a portion of it. Did you ask her to bring it to me? Did you think that I would still have the appetite to eat chicken after seeing the miserable state of that dead chicken during the day?”

    她如此好脸面,可不会说她当时看见鸡汤,差点就要吐了。

She is so prideful, she wouldn’t say that she almost vomited when she saw the chicken soup just now.

    “你当时抱着死鸡时不是挺镇定的么,难道也有心理阴影了?”阮夜笙低头,继续看剧本。

“Weren’t you quite calm when you carried that dead chicken? Don’t tell me you were also traumatised?” Ruan Yesheng lowered her head and continued reading the script.

    “所以的确是你要她来的?”

“So it was really you who asked her to come?”

    “你干什么。”阮夜笙往后退一步,眼波揉来挡去,显得有些委屈:“你觉得我是故意的,膈应你胃口,在这来朝我兴师问罪的?在你心里,我就这么坏女人?”

“What are you doing?” Ruan Yesheng took a step back and her eyes moved about appearing aggrieved. “Did you think that I have done it on purpose to ruin your appetite, so you came here to confront me? Am I such a bad woman in your heart? “

    她说话七分带媚,三分含嗔,但凡面前站了个心智不那么坚定的人,都要被她这声酥了心。

She spoke with 7 point charm and 3 point anger. Whenever someone with a less determined mind stands in front of her, they would be saddened by her voice.

    奚墨脸上没有半点波澜。

Not a single change could be seen on Xi Mo’s face.

    心里恨不得现在往她嘴里塞只鸡腿。

She couldn’t wait to stuff a drumstick into her mouth right now.

    “你想多了。”奚墨睨着她。

“You think too much.” Xi Mo glanced at her.

    然后依然平静地开口:“如果是你让冯唐唐来的话,我先谢谢你的好意。不过我今天见了死鸡,实在没胃口,所以我一口也没有吃,都给颜听欢吃了。”

Then, she calmly said, “If it’s you who asked Feng Tangtang to come, I would first like to thank you for your good intentions. However, I saw the dead chicken today and really do not have the appetite for that, so I didn’t take a single bite and gave it all to Yan Tinghuan.”

    阮夜笙有点愣,顿了顿,说:“你来找我,就是为了告诉这个?”

Ruan Yesheng was a little taken aback. She paused for a moment and said, “You came to me just to tell me this?”

    “我是来确认下,如果是的话,那就是想告诉你这个。”奚墨一脸严肃地解释:“你特地托人送了东西给我,我没有吃,给了别人,但是这不代表我拂了你的好意,本意我是领受的,但是今天情况特殊。”

“I came here to make sure. If it is really you who asked her to come, then I want to tell you this.” Xi Mo explained with a serious look, “You specially asked someone to give me something, but I didn’t eat it and gave it to someone else. However, it doesn’t mean that I am brushing aside your good intentions. I’ve accepted your intention, but today’s situation is special.”

    阮夜笙心里一阵讶异,感觉眼前这女人有时候的确是认真得一板一眼的,跟直板子似的,竟然还有点可爱,她心绪起伏,表情也跟随变来换去,最后噗嗤笑出来了。

Ruan Yesheng was surprised. She felt that although the woman before her was indeed so serious sometimes and rigid and inflexible like a board, she was actually a little cute. Ruan Yesheng’s mood experienced ups and downs and her expression also changed along with it. In the end, she broke into laughter.

    奚墨:“……”

Xi Mo: “…”

    笑!就知道笑!

Laugh! All you know is laugh!

    你脸怎么不抽筋呢!

Why does your face not experience any cramps!

    不对,那是我的脸!

Wait no, that’s my face!

    阮夜笙笑了一阵才忍住,看着奚墨的眼睛,轻轻说:“我的确想得有点多的。”

Ruan Yesheng laughed for a while before managing to hold it back. She looked at Xi Mo’s eyes and said softly, “I do think a little too much.”

    她把剧本轻轻搭在奚墨肩头,蜻蜓点水般一点:“你也想多了。”

She put the script lightly on Xi Mo’s shoulder like a dragonfly tapping the water and said, “You thought too much too.”

    灯光再度往这边扫,那边林启堂一直在和工作人员说话,声音忽大忽小。奚墨在这种嘈杂中眯了眯眼,将阮夜笙的剧本挪开了。

The lights swept towards this side again. Lin Qitang has been talking to the staff over there, his voice sometimes loud and sometimes soft. Xi Mo squinted her eyes amidst the noise and moved Ruan Yesheng’s script away.

    “开始工作了。”阮夜笙笑着说。

“It’s time to work.” Ruan Yesheng said with a smile.

    奚墨看她一眼,转身离开。

Xi Mo gave her a glance and turned to leave.

    机位就绪,晚上的夜戏就数奚墨的最累,因为她有打戏。

With the camera in place, they were ready to start. Xi Mo’s night scene is the most tiring because she has a fighting scene.

    其中有一段是定厄的哥哥作为刺客夜袭邓府,被邓绥的父亲邓训擒住,邓训那时心里起了疑心,为了试探定厄,命令定厄亲手斩杀那名刺客,定厄在她哥哥的默许下,最终亲手结束了她哥哥的性命。这段早在奚墨去试镜时就演过,驾轻就熟,邓训的扮演者也是知名的老戏骨,这次看在林启堂的面子上帮个忙,客串几段,演技当然也是没话说的,这条很快也过了。

There is one part in which Ding E’s brother attacked Deng’s mansion at night as an assassin, but was captured by Deng Sui’s father Deng Xun. Deng Xun grew suspicious at that time. In order to test Ding E, he ordered Ding E to kill the assassin herself. With the acquiescence of her brother, Ding E finally ended her brother’s life with her own hands. This part was already acted out by Xi Mo when she went for the audition, so she was familiar with it. Deng Xun’s actor is also a well-known senior actor. He was helping out this time for the sake of Lin Qitang and made a few guest appearances in the show. His acting skill is of course undeniable and this scene passed very quickly.

    之后那场打戏就很重要了,堪称前期的一个转折点,林启堂特地将邓府这几段夜戏集中拍摄。

The next fighting scene will be very important and can be called the turning point for the early part of the show. Lin Qitang is especially focused on filming these night scenes that take place in Deng’s mansion.

    刺客再次来袭,这次颇具规模,邓府上下都乱了起来,定厄作为从小被投在邓府的暗桩,自然也被委派的最重要的任务。邓训被刺客头领引到外院,定厄杀了几名刺客,跟着邓训到了外院,和邓训一起迎敌。

The assassins striked again, this time on a large scale, and Deng’s house was in chaos. As a spy planted in the Deng’s mansion since young, Ding E was naturally appointed the most important task. Deng Xun was led to the outer courtyard by the assassin leader. Ding E killed several assassins and followed Deng Xun to the outer courtyard to face the enemy together with Deng Xun.

    灯光特地打得很晦暗,还带着一点青白诡异的效果,到处是飘忽的光影,晃得邓府花树摇曳,有如鬼魅。

The lighting was purposely made dim, with a little bit of greenish-white strange effect. There are moving lights and shadows everywhere, swaying on the flowers and trees of Deng’s Mansion and feeling like ghosts.

    奚墨一手提剑,一路疾跑,后面摄影机跟随,其中一台跟拍特写她的脚步。

Xi Mo sprint all the way with a sword in her hand. Cameras followed behind her, one of which was taking a close-up of her footsteps.

    她的脚步开始十分从容,不带半点凝滞,仿佛此刻的定厄心里毫无杂念,只有明确的目标,后面却有点趋近紊乱,因为这时候她看到邓训,想起邓绥了。播出时特写并不会全部依靠奚墨的面部,还依靠她的肢体语言,比如这时候脚步就显得比较重要,她得依靠脚步的变换展示角色的心境。

Her footsteps were very calm in the beginning. It did not have the slightest bit of hesitation as if there were no distracting thoughts in Ding E’s heart at this moment but only clear goals. However, it became a little disorderly afterwards. It was because she saw Deng Xun and thought of Deng Sui. When the show is aired, close-ups won’t rely entirely on Xi Mo’s face, but also on her body language. For example, her footsteps are more important at this time, and she has to rely on the change of her footsteps to show the mood of the character.

    这段戏十分压抑,而且定厄也几乎是没有台词的,奚墨全凭表情和肢体表现这个角色的复杂性。

The scene is very oppressive, and Ding E has almost no lines. Xi Mo had to express the complexity of this role solely by her expression and body.

    邓训扮演者被演刺客头领的男配刺伤,捂着胸口站在一旁,喊道:“定厄!”

The actor who was acting as Deng Xun got stabbed by the male actor who was acting as the assassin leader. Clutching his chest, he stood one side and shouted, “Ding E!”

    机位不断移动位置,奚墨从阴影里跃出,面无表情地和男配斗在一起。

The cameras kept changing their position. Xi Mo jumped out from the shadows and fought with the male actor expressionlessly.

    “咔!”没过一分钟,林启堂打断了。

“Cut!” It hasn’t even been a minute and Lin Qitang asked them to stop.

    这段太过重要,林启堂就比较吹毛求疵,说:“阮夜笙你刚才出来时有点太快了,这里要慢一点!再来一遍!”

This scene was just too important, so Lin Qitang was more nitpicking about it. He said, “Ruan Yesheng, you were a bit too fast when you came out just now. You have to be a little slower here! Do it again!”

    奚墨点点头:“好的,不好意思林导。”

Xi Mo nodded: “Okay. I’m sorry, Director Lin.”

    机位就绪,灯光一晃,奚墨再度跃出,寒剑一闪。

The cameras got back to their position again. As the lights flickered, Xi Mo jumped out again and her cold sword flashed.

    这次掐着时间跳出来的,好歹没问题,林启堂没说话,默认拍摄继续,奚墨出剑,那边蒙着脸穿着夜行服的男配提剑挑来。

Xi Mo jumped out at the right timing this time and there was no problem. Lin Qitang did not say anything and allowed the filming to continue. Xi Mo drew her sword. The male actor who was wearing assassin clothes and had his face covered raised his sword and came over.

    武术指导上来指导,打斗时虽然动作慢,全靠后期加速,但是拍摄时招式还是得到位,出手要凌厉,表情也要到位,有时候奚墨还得被威压吊高了出招。她以前拍电影时就早已经习惯吊威亚了,有时候甚至要吊上一整天,不过这样来回折腾头晕眼花的,也的确够呛。

A stunt coordinator came to instruct their fighting. Although the fighting would be slow and would be sped up during post production, their moves still have to be in place when filming. Their moves have to be sharp and their expression must also be correct. There were also times when Xi Mo had to make her moves after being lifted up by wires. She was already used to hanging on wires when she was filming in movies in the past. Sometimes, she even has to be hung up in the air the whole day. However, being tossed about in the air sure makes her very dizzy.

    阮夜笙站在远处,默默看着奚墨吊威亚,邓绥不会武功,全凭定厄保护,阮夜笙这部戏全程都不必受威亚的苦,都由奚墨接了。

Ruan Yesheng stood in the distance and silently watched Xi Mo being hung on the wires. Deng Sui does not know martial arts and relies on Ding E for protection. Ruan Yesheng didn’t have to suffer from being hung on wires throughout this scene and it is all taken on by Xi Mo.

    刺客被定厄制服,奚墨挑起剑,直指男配咽喉。

The assassin was subdued by Ding E. Xi Mo raised her sword and pointed it at the male actor’s throat.

    邓训扮演者命令道:“定厄,快杀了他!杀了他!”

The actor acting as Deng Xun ordered, “Ding E, quickly kill him! Kill him!”

    奚墨眼珠一滑,瞥向命令者,突然伸出一掌,拍在邓训扮演者胸口。

Xi Mo’s eyes turned and she glanced at the person ordering her. Her palm suddenly reached out to strike the chest of the actor acting as Deng Xun.

    这个地方设定是要命的催心一掌,邓训没有防备,立刻要口喷鲜血,而且这血也被林启堂要求喷得要有视觉效果。

At this scene, the setting was for a palm strike meant to take his life. Deng Xun was caught off guard and is supposed to spit out blood immediately. Moreover, Lin Qitang requested for this blood to be spitted out with great visual effect.

    一掌拍过去,那个扮演邓训的老戏骨骇然睁大眼睛,表情痛苦,跟着他就要按照剧本咬破血袋,口吐鲜血。

After the palm strike, the senior actor acting as Deng Xun widened his eyes in shock with a pained expression. Following that, he would bite through the blood bag and vomit blood according to the script.

    奚墨早已经准备好了,在戏里出不来,这个喷血的时候她必须保持双眼注视,到时候会有面部表情特写。

Xi Mo is already long prepared and can’t leave the scene. When Deng Xun is vomiting blood, she has to maintain eye contact with him. There would be a close up on her expression.

    然而老戏骨在那表情狰狞地痛苦了半天,也不知道怎么没咬成功,血愣是没喷出来。

The senior actor has been having a pained expression for a long time, but for some reason, he couldn’t bite through the blood bag successfully and the blood never sprayed out.

    两人僵持在片场。

The two of them froze at that scene.

    老戏骨:“……”

Senior actor: “…”

    奚墨:“……”

Xi Mo: “…”

    “咔!”林启堂喊道:“又怎么回事!道具上去看看!”

“Cut!” Lin Qitang shouted, “What’s wrong again! Props technicians, go take a look!”

    片场又恢复了嘈杂,工作人员上去检查,给老戏骨换了个没问题的血袋。

The set became noisy again. The staff went over to check and replaced the senior actor’s blood bag with a working one.

    老戏骨向来在别人面前德高望重惯了,现在也有点尴尬,朝奚墨说:“阮小姐,不好意思啊。”他演戏那么多年,当然知道拍摄时入戏情绪很难酝酿,一旦酝酿好了突然被打断,到时候再来酝酿就很麻烦了。

The senior actor has always been respected by others and has already grown accustomed to it. However, he also felt a bit embarrassed now. He said to Xi Mo, “Miss Ruan, sorry about that.” He has been acting for so many years, of course he knows that it’s very hard to get into the right mood when filming. Once the right mood is suddenly broken, it will be hard to get it back again.

    奚墨微笑道:“不是李老师你的问题,道具难免有纰漏的,我们继续吧。”

Xi Mo smiled and said: “It’s not your fault Teacher Li. It’s inevitable that props might have some flaws. Let’s continue.”

    重拍开始,令老戏骨惊讶的是,眼前这个演员又很快进入了状态。

When the filming restarted, the senior actor was surprised to find that the actor before him got into the right state very quickly.

    她就像是一个分裂的人,戏外一个人,戏里一个人,完全没有重叠。

She was just like someone of split personality. She was this person outside of acting and was another person when acting. There were no overlaps at all.

    这次成功咬破血袋,鲜血按照要求喷到了奚墨脸上,喷了满脸,镜头赶紧过来给她脸部大特写。

After successfully biting through the blood bag this time, the blood was sprayed on Xi Mo’s face as required. The blood sprayed all over her face and the camera hurried over to get a close-up of her face.

    满脸都是那种不舒服的道具血,奚墨心里自然是很不舒服,不过她的状态并没有受到影响,她站在晦暗不明的光影中,鼓风机吹着她的长发和服装,她满脸是血,就连睫毛似乎都未曾颤动一下,在这种变换的光中显得冰冷麻木,空洞得像一把死去多年的剑。

Xi Mo’s face was full of the uncomfortable prop blood, so she naturally felt very uncomfortable in her heart. However, this didn’t affect her acting. She stood in the dark under the obscure light and the air blower was blowing her long hair and clothes. Her face is full of blood but even her eyelashes don’t seem to tremble at all. It appeared numbingly cold in the ever changing light, and hollow like a sword that had been dead for many years.

    定厄曾对年少的邓绥说剑是有灵魂的,因为要保护邓绥,她将是邓绥的剑。

Ding E once said to the young Deng Sui that swords have souls. To protect Deng Sui, she will be Deng Sui’s sword.

    可是这一刻,杀了邓绥的父亲,剑的魂死了。

But at this moment, after killing Deng Sui’s father, the soul of the sword died.

    定厄的魂,也跟随死了。

Ding E’s soul has also died along with it.

    阮夜笙马上就要进场,她将奚墨之前的一举一动看在眼里,心底彻彻底底地奚墨的演技震撼了。

Ruan Yesheng was about to enter the scene. She saw every single move of Xi Mo previously and her heart was thoroughly shocked by Xi Mo’s acting.

    她一直知道奚墨的演技好,从大学起,她就知道。

She has always known that Xi Mo’s acting skill is good, and she knew this since university.

    她收藏了奚墨的每一部作品,感受她在戏中的每一个角色的魂魄风骨,欣赏的同时默默学习,却很久没像现在这样亲临现场,近距离地看到奚墨的表演。

She has collected every work of Xi Mo and felt the soul of every character in the shows. As she appreciated her acting, she also quietly studied it at the same time. However, it’s been a long time since she got to come to the scene in person and watch Xi Mo’s acting up close. 

    林启堂示意阮夜笙跑进镜头,阮夜笙提了裙摆,失魂落魄地跑进这个堪称地狱的屠杀现场。

Lin Qitang signaled Ruan Yesheng to run into the scene. Ruan Yesheng lifted her skirt and ran into this hell-like massacre scene desperately.

    “父亲!”她带哭腔喊,嗓音颤抖。

“Father!” she cried out with her voice trembling.

    老戏骨躺在地上敬业地装尸体,胸口插着刺客男配的那把剑。

The senior actor laid on the ground, dedicatedly pretending to be a corpse with the sword of the male assassin stuck in his chest.

    阮夜笙扑过去抱着“尸体”,满脸是血的奚墨站在镜头中央,她开始移动,跟拍机位也开始跟随她而去,她走到阮夜笙面前,居高临下地看着阮夜笙。

Ruan Yesheng rushed over to hug the “corpse”. Xi Mo, who had a face full of blood, stood at the center of focus of the camera. As she started to move, the cameras also started following after her. She walked up to Ruan Yesheng and looked down at Ruan Yesheng.

    阮夜笙抬起头,眼睛通红,眼泪将掉未掉,只由下往上看着她。

Ruan Yesheng raised her head. Her eyes were red and her tears were about to fall. She only looked at her from the bottom up.

    四目相接,奚墨看着阮夜笙梨花带雨的模样,知道这是假哭,她心里一紧,那一瞬突然在想如果这女人倘若真的哭,会是什么模样?

Their eyes met. Xi Mo saw Ruan Yesheng’s teary look which looked like a pear blossom covered in rain water and knew that it was a fake cry. Her heart clenched. In that instant, she suddenly thought: If this woman really cried, what would it look like?

    阮夜笙擅长演戏,假哭真哭可能是一样的,或许难以分辨。

Ruan Yesheng is good at acting. Her fake crying and real crying might be the same, or it might just be difficult to distinguish.

    这种意外的分心让奚墨有点不舒服,她缓缓跪了下来,递过长剑,单膝着地道:“我没保护好家主,小姐请杀了我。”

This unexpected distraction made Xi Mo a little uncomfortable. She knelt down slowly and handed over her long sword. With one knee on the ground, she said, “I didn’t manage to protect the family head. Please kill me, Miss.”

    定厄这时对邓绥说谎,她是不敢直面邓绥的,于是奚墨将眼睫垂了,只是看着面前的尸体。

Ding E lied to Deng Sui at this time, so she did not dare to face Deng Sui directly. Hence, Xi Mo lowered her eyes and only looked at the corpse in front of her.
