The moment that book fans have been eagerly waiting for is finally coming next week! Princess Silver 白发 will see Rong Le’s hair turn white. Leading man Aarif Rahman reveals that it was his most unforgettable scene in the drama.
He was impressed with the ten pages of buildup that led to the pivotal moment and likened the experience of reading the script to that of a book fan’s. He became very invested in what was happening. When he reached the end, he took a deep breath and was in a state of shock. He also said that it got the cast talking among themselves since all of them – Sophie Zhang, Jing Chao and Luo Yunxi were in that scene.
In Mo Yanshang’s novel The White Haired Imperial Concubine, Rong Le’s hair of ebony black transforms into a snowy white hue overnight because of the machinations of Fu Chou. While Fu Chou loved Rong Le, she loved Wu You. Fu Chou schemes for Hen Xiang to pretend to be Rong Le and gives her a drug that will entice her to make love to Wu You. It is mistakenly ingested by the real Rong Le. Fu Chou sends Rong Le to lay in bed with Wu You without realizing who she really is.
On that fateful day with roughly 100,000 soldiers present, Rong Le never imagined that she would be humiliated publicly, much less in the watchful eyes of a large male audience. In the novel, she is a woman from a different period who has time travelled a thousand years.
With the adaptation of the novel into a drama, there’s always the question of how the story will be brought to life, and the episode 35 preview teases intense moments behind the red curtains. Will you be watching?
