  1. This is so interesting. I’ve never heard of this type of casting before? It’ll be exciting to see who gets the role, because I think China needs some more fresh-faced, international-Chinese actors. You should post more of these, if there are any more opportunities.

  2. Color me impressed by the English in that flyer! Smart move to keep the English character descriptions short and sweet, though it’s funny seeing how much more in-depth the Chinese character descriptions are.

    Also, are they hinting that Chris Lee should apply for Yang Guo… LOL.

  3. Interesting! Nice that they’re not looking for experience, as long as there as a good director there is no need for that acting background. Hope they find somebody with talent instead.

    Haha! Love that part “headshot taken on a cellphone without any filters nor PS”

  4. Wow, this is interesting.
    I’ve been waiting for Tsui Hark’s ROCH, and I’mglad to see that he is looking for a fresh brand-new casts. Now I’m hoping that these newbies can act too.
