To fans' surprise, Vic Chou recently revealed a warning he received from Dilraba Dilmurat, his leading lady in The Flame's Daughter, about acting with her. He ignored the advice but now agrees that she was right. What was the warning? It also has something to do with Zhang Bin Bin! Read on...

As Vic Chou recalled in a recent interview, Dilraba Dilmurat said to him , "Are you sure you want to act with me? Will you be able to carry me?"

She explained that all of her leading men were required (as demanded by the director) to carry her, but every one of them got wiped out.

Here's the very tall Dong Hua Dijun (Venue Gao) carrying the Red Fox Princess in Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms:

And, of course, the charismatic Zhang Bin Bin also carried his lady in The King's Woman. There was even a famous scene in which he carried her while half running, because her character was sick.

Vic Chou has reigned over the romantic dramaland for years, and the leading man thought to himself, "She's just a slender girl. How is carrying her a problem?"

So the disbelieving Vic ended up carrying Dilraba in multiple scenes for The Flame's Daughter.

That's not the problem.

The problem is, as the wiser Vic tells it now, it might require 30 takes to get just one scene right!

Toward the end of one scene, he said he was practically using the last of his strength as if he was "a baby sucking mother's milk" to get the job done right.
