On April 21, the chief producer of the 94 version of "The Romance of the Three Kingdoms" Ren Dahui said in an interview that when they filmed "The Romance of the Three Kingdoms", the two leading actors, Tang Guoqiang and Bao Guoan, were paid only 225. Renminbi, such a salary is indeed incredible now.
Ren Dahui also revealed that at the time of the filming, 600 actors were paid, which accounted for a total of percent of the total investment in "The Romance of the Three Kingdoms" It's five o'clock. This ratioIt is indeed very small. At that time, the "Romance of the Three Kingdoms" was filmed for three full years. Because there are many special effects, the total investment is as high as 80 million yuan. It is precisely because the money is spent where it is needed that it will finally present such a classic "Romance of the Three Kingdoms" to the audience.
Although the pay is low, the actors in the show are very Dedicated, Tang Guoqiang and other leading actors have dedicated their wonderful acting skills. Such a play is still well-produced even if it is revisited more than two decades later. Now it is very difficult to produce such a domestic drama explosion.
I don’t know when the actors’ salaries have risen. In many cases, the salaries of the protagonist of a drama can account for more than half of the total investment. . As the actors’ salaries are getting higher and higher, more and more non-actor professional stars have also started their acting careers. They have high salaries, but the final productions are hard to say. In fact, most of the investment will be invested. It’s invested in the protagonist. How can the remaining money support excellent other creative environments? The choice of actors for an excellent work is certainly important. However, if the proportion of actors is too large, they will follow too much because of small losses. The topicality of traffic stars will make the whole work worse.
However, the radio and television has previously issued a high salary limit for celebrities. It is clearly required that the salary of celebrities cannot exceed 40% of the total investment. And as time passes, the traffic is not What is valued by the audience is that the acting skills of the actors are more recognized by the audience than the flow. Now I look at Tang Guoqiang 20 years ago. At that time, he took the pay of 225 yuan an episode, but tried his best to perform well. Each of his own plays, such dedication, is what every actor should learn. Only with such an actor can he create outstanding works.
