The producer took advantage of the situation and said hurriedly, “This is Ms. Caroline Evans. In addition to being the CEO of Evans Group, she also has a good relationship with Mr. Eddy.”
He was telling the truth. She was Eddy’s former fiancée.
However, Marietta didn’t care much about this. What she really admired was Caroline’s courage to stand up to authority.
She took out a business card and handed it to Caroline. “This is my business card. I’m currently writing a new book. I’m not sure if you would give me the honor of becoming my first reader?”
Caroline’s eyes lit up, and she said, “It would be my pleasure, Ms. Weiss.”
“So then we agree. Remember to contact me when the time comes, and I’ll give you a sample.”
“Okay.” Caroline nodded.
Marietta glanced at Sonia on the stage again. “I still think Ms. Sonia’s performance is more in line
with my vision of Grace.”
As soon as she said these words, gasps sounded through the venue.
The producer hurriedly looked at Sonia on the stage. “But …”
Marietta interjected with a raised brow. “What? Am I not qualified to pick the female lead?”
Marietta was different from the playwrights back home. As a big shot, she had more authority
than an ordinary playwright. She could even kill off the protagonist if she was upset.
The producer couldn’t afford to upset a big shot like her.
Without thinking, he said, “You’re right. Sonia’s portrayal of Grace is very consistent with the
writing. And her acting is natural and smooth. She deserves to have this role.”
Since the producer had spoken, the rest of the judges had no other opinions.
The change in the situation shocked all the celebrities and managers present.
They had never imagined that Caroline could help Sonia snag such a good role from Daphne.
On top of that, she hadn’t even used her position and status to do this. She had simply helped
Everyone immediately saw Caroline in a new light. Admiration, envy, and regret welled up within
Daphne, who was standing behind the stage, was so angry that her expression had shifted. She was about to throw caution into the wind and rush off the stage to question Marietta.
But her sharp–eyed manager quickly stopped her. Her manager pulled Daphne all the way backstage before asking, “What are you doing, Daph?”
“I’m going to question Marietta! Didn’t she agree to cast me? Why did she break her promise and pick Sonia?”
The manager held her head and grabbed Daphne. “Calm down, Daph! If you cause a scene, everyone will know you pulled some strings. That would be very detrimental to your image.”
“So what if I did?”
Daphne said confidently, “I’m Eddy’s second uncle’s wife! What’s wrong with pulling some strings?
The manager hurriedly covered Daphne’s mouth. “My goodness, can you keep it down?
Remember, you’re not actually married to him!
If she offended her fake husband, he may end up announcing the marriage as fake. Then,
everything Daphne had would disappear.
Daphne groaned in protest. After a long while, she glared at her manager, picked up a compact on
the table, and tossed it away in anger. “It’s all Caroline’s fault!”
At this time, the judges left one by one. As there were fewer and fewer people in the theater,
Caroline stood up and walked to the stage. Although she didn’t look back, she could feel Kirk
At the thought of Kirk, Caroline couldn’t help but hasten her steps in annoyance. As she walked
past the judge’s table, Caroline glanced at Dolly. But she didn’t recognize her and walked quickly
to the stage.
