Chinese producer, Yu Zheng has confirmed that Michelle Chen will play the female lead, Little Dragon Girl in his upcoming drama, Return of the Condor Heroes <神鵰俠侶>.

Yu Zheng, who has gained success in blockbuster dramas, Palace <宫>and Beauty <美人係列> said that Little Dragon Girl was selected from 66 actresses and Angelababy and Michelle was found to be the most suitable. Although Angelababy was rumoured to be the candidate playing the classic role, Michelle eventually beats her to it due to Angelababy’s conflicting schedule.

Many loyal followings of the Jin Yong’s wuxia novel quickly slammed at the choice of the Little Dragon Girl who criticised that Michelle is “too fat” and “not sophisticated enough”.

Responding on the criticisms on the Little Dragon Girl choice, Yu Zheng posted the audition photos of Michelle and blogged on his Weibo, “Why is there so much noise? There are no confirmed costume fitting photos, but the audition photos will kill all of you! I dare to say that you will be speechless.”

When the audition photos are out, many netizens are still not convinced that the star of You Are the Apple of My Eye <那些年,我們一起追的女孩> can fit in the Little Dragon Girl Role.

A netizen wrote, “The scene where Little Dragon Girl sleeping on a rope has mesmerised many viewers. Are you sure the rope can hold this Little Dragon Girl?”

Another netizen wrote, “We are not detesting you (referring to Michelle), but please do not ruin the Little Dragon Girl image in everyone’s hearts. Don’t accept the role, it will ruin you.”

Michelle’s fans have retaliated that she will add in a fresh breath to the role.

However, Hong Kong renowned director, Wong Jing is also not too impressed with Michelle. He wrote on his Weibo, “Such a fat Little Dragon Girl?”

  1. MichelleChenMiscast

    Michelle Chen doesnt fit the image to be xiao long nu at all, definitely the worst Xiao long nu ever cast.She doesnt have the elegance, beauty, and slim physique for XLN.
    She can’t hold a candle to the previous XLNs. Her chubby girl next door look is TERRIBLE for the character. She should know better as an actress than to accept such a miscast role.
    It doesnt help that all the other actresses are more beautiful and have better personalities. It makes you wonder what on earth possessed Yang guo to pick her, gah they dont even have any chemistry. It must be hard for Chen Xiao to act like she’s the fairest of them all when she looks like a common palace maid.
    I was looking forward to this drama but Michelle Chen’s crappy casting and acting has ruined it. Michelle Chen is too fat, too ugly and too old to play xiao long nu. She should know better.

  3. She is not fat, she just has the chubby cheeks which makes her cute…but I agree even though I like her. She does suit playing the role…in my opinion either liu shi shi or this other girl, I forgot her name, but liu shi shi is a good match to play that role.

  4. Please don’t cast her as little dragon girl. Her looks are very plain. Angela Baby would be perfect.
    The actor who played Yang Guo is already not great. I don’t think I will watch this drama because of the cast.
    Please also don’t have too much of fighting special effects. I like to see some real martial arts like what they did in the 90s or something like the 2012 white hair maiden.
