Next on the red carpet was supposed to be Nicki, the recent Golden Magnolia Award winner for Best Supporting Actress. However, Nicki had a feud with Kimberly, a fellow actress from the same film. Their fans were constantly at odds with each other, causing friction between the two. Kimberly was set to appear three spots after Nicki, which stirred Nicki’s discontent.
The later you appeared on the red carpet, the higher your status was. And the grand finale was always reserved for the biggest stars – the leading actresses and actors.
Although they were from the same agency, both were secretly trying to outshine one another. When the official announcement was made, Nicki’s name was listed first. But during the red carpet walk, Kimberly was considered to have had more experience and status, which Nicki found hard to swallow. This led to a backstage feud between their teams. None of them wanted to make the first move.
For a while, the red carpet was at a standstill.
Allison, dressed in a white backless gown, was standing backstage. As scheduled her for the middle slot. So, Allison was waiting.
newcomer, she was supposed to be the first to walk, but Patty had
At this moment, a staff member came out and made an emergency adjustment.
Emma spoke to Allison, “Allison, since Nicki and Kimberly are arguing, we’re having you walk the red carpet now to salvage the situation. The press might ask you a few questions.” Since there was no pre-prepared script, and this was happening unexpectedly, Emma was a bit nervous.
Allison nodded. “I understand.”
Recently, news had leaked that Allison was going to star in a new film by Wade. Many people were surprised, and some even called her a “resource magnet” for landing a role in a Wade film so early in her career.
Allison had barely any fans; she just had a few admirers based on her looks.
She had to keep her Twitter active every fortnight as per company rules. She had posted a few selfies. Her style was relaxed and comfortable, her makeup natural, giving off a youthful vibe. She had a few hundred comments on her post.
But still, Allison was a brand-new face in the entertainment industry with no films released yet.
The dress she chose was not extravagant. She didn’t like to flaunt herself too much. As a newcomer, she wanted to keep a low profile. She chose two gowns of the same design but different colors, a backless long dress, a deep V at the back, pure white with no extra jewelry. Her hair was loosely tied up. Under the photographer’s lens, her back was flawless, as smooth as silk.
Allison picked up her long dress and walked onto the red carpet. She didn’t walk slowly, unlike other newcomers who deliberately loitered to gain attention. She crossed the 20-meter-long carpet in about ten seconds, signed her name, and greeted the media with a slight smile.
The host looked at Allison as if she was a lifesaver. Following the prompt in her earpiece, she quickly asked, “Allison, I heard you recently joined Epic Entertainment and have already shot two films. Can you tell your fans…” The host paused, realizing that Allison was a newcomer and didn’t have fans yet, quickly correcting herself. “…tell me about these two films?”
Allison took the microphone and briefly introduced herself and the two films. Her voice, amplified by the microphone, was soft and clear, slightly husky, and very pleasing to the ear.
After her introduction, she handed the microphone to the host and prepared to leave. But with Nicki and Kimberly’s teams still arguing backstage, and the next person on the red carpet was not confirmed. The host quickly halted Allison from leaving.
