Update on Acting’s Final — Cell

I find it hard to tell a whole story within a scene, so my approach was taking a scene out of a built-up story. (In the meantime, insert as many backstories as I can. ) My story is about a phone thief found out the phone’s owner is having an affair with his elder brother’s girlfriend. As this story is about revealing a bunch of truths, I thought that the best scene to act shall be the turning point, where the brother found out that his own younger brother is the theft and the affair.

The thief is named Andrew Lee while his elder brother, a discipline officer of the student committee is named Bradley. The phone owner who made a big news about the stolen phone, not knowing his secret was cracked by Andrew, is named Simon Heng.

The scene exchanges the status between the brothers. Andrew who knew things became clueless, while his chill brother has a secret plan in the end. Bradley is strict and disciplined but snaps during the conversation, turning him into a furious beast. Andrew is an indecisive yet naive person who didn’t think his plan thoroughly. He was relieved that he spoke out the truth in the end but he was worried by the unpredictable plan of his brother.

I wanted to act as Bradley as I hope to release the wrath out of me, but my partner Fish Png Chen Yu thinks the role doesn’t suit me well. Therefore, I will go after Andrew since I’m okay with both characters from the beginning.

Script: CELL 1b
