Wang Luodan says she embodies the same virtue as the character she plays in author and racecar driver Han Han
's upcoming directorial debut, "The Continent."
The actress made the remark during the film's premiere on yesterday.
In the film, Wang plays a prostitute that services guests at a road hotel. Though she is expected to swindle the extra yuan out of her unwitting customers, she is reluctant to act dishonestly.
"The role I play in the film is a girl with a pure and honest character. She charges money for her services at a set price, never asking for more. I share that same sincerity toward people in real life."
Also in attendance at the film's Beijing premiere was director Han Han, actors Feng Shaofeng, Bolin Chen, Joe Chen and actress Yuan Quan.
"The Continent" tells the story of a group of childhood friends that go on a "somewhat reckless journey" together.
The film rolls onto mainland screens this Thursday.
