Yang Zi turned wooden shooting kiss scene with Wallace Huo in Battle of Changsha
|Shooting this scene turned Yang Zi into a piece of wood. I notice that Wallace Huo has a tendency to stroke his female co-star's face before a kiss. Some acting style never changes!|

Transcript of fan recorded video:
Wallace Huo: I was like...I was like...why on earth did she look like that?! She didn't move at all. Then the [director said] "cut." When I leaned back to take a better look [she said] "I'm so sorry! I'm sorry! Please give me another chance. I got too nervous." We tried a second time and she reacted the same way. Super cute and funny. Like this...[he imitates Yang Zi's reaction. See photo above]
Yang Zi: Actually, during shooting when the director called out "action" and Hua Ge (Wallace's nickname meaning "Older Brother Hua") started to lean loser to me, I thought the director would say "cut." But the director ended up not saying anything. So I freaked out and didn't know what to do. What should I do? What should I do? Should I kiss him or shouldn't I kiss him?! Should I turn away or should I not turn away? So it ended up that way..."
Wallace Huo: It well went the next try. But she eventually would have to deal with these types of situations. In her future film projects, she'll have broader choices...[host interjects]
Host: Do you get to kiss your female co-star in every project?
Wallace Huo: Nope [couldn't hear what he says next]
Host: Do you always like to add extra scenes to your dramas? Like kiss scenes?
Wallace Huo: Yeah. I frequently add them, [audience laughs] if I feel there is a need for them. But I would always discuss it with my female co-stars beforehand. Like 'Do you think this will be okay?'
Host: How did your female co-stars respond?
Wallace Huo: Most would just say "Okay, let's do it!" [audience laughs] A large majority are extremely professional actresses. They usually don't mind filming these types of scenes.
Host: Yang Zi. You shouldn't have a problem now. You have practice!
Yang Zi: [couldn't make out what she said in the beginning] So next time if I still need to film kiss scenes, and if I kiss well, then I'm going to give Hua Ge a call and say "Hua Ge, Happy Collaboration!"
