Who will be the right Little Dragon Girl?
After months of searching, the jasmine-like appearance, outstanding performing skills and booming
popularity of Sun Feifei made her the clear choice for the role of
the Little Dragon Girl in the soon-to-be produced TV Series The Return of the Condor
Heroes(dir. Shen Diao Xia Lu).
At first, the producer of the series intended to invite Zhou Xun, who played Huang Rong in another famous novel by Jin Yong, to play the role of the Little Dragon Girl.
However, the choice was criticized by both the TV station and the fans of Mr. Jin Yong, who insisted that Zhou's appearance and temperament did not make her the right person for the role.
In fear of losing the favor of the domestic and overseas markets, the investors and directors were forced to reconsider the actress who would play the Little Dragon Girl.
After twists and turns, Sun Feifei became the lucky one by defeating other competitive candidates, such as Jiang Qinqin and Liu Yifei.
Sun Feifei, who has years of experience under her belt but is not yet widely known to Chinese audiences, graduated from the Beijing Dance Academy.
In a recent soap "Beijing, My Love" co-produced by China and Korea, she acted as a graceful college student, and won much support in Korea. The series will screen on CCTV in the coming October.
