At the just-concluded 36th Hundred Flowers Awards for Popular Films, Jia Ling's "Hello, Li Huanying" won the Excellent Film Award.
However, at this award ceremony, the lead actor Zhang Xiaofei, who sat on the stage, was no longer surrounded by the spotlight.
You know, Zhang Xiaofei is the hottest "national mother" in 2021, and she is the focus of attention wherever she goes.
In fact, the movie "Hello, Li Huanying" has changed the trajectory of many people's lives, and the one who benefited the most was Zhang Xiaofei.
From an obscure little actor to the Golden Rooster Awards actress.
Zhang Xiaofei suddenly became a top actress and was loved by countless people.
However, only a year later, Zhang Xiaofei returned to her "strange circle".
The sharp decline in resources has once again become the "small transparency" of the entertainment industry.
So why did Zhang Xiaofei, who had unlimited scenery before, become like this?
Can she still catch fire?
From dance to acting, he became a classmate with Yang Mi and others
In 1986, Zhang Xiaofei was born into a working family in Liaoning.
In the era of family planning, Zhang Xiaofei became the only daughter in the family, and her parents gave her all their love.
Because his parents were both workers and his income was acceptable, Zhang Xiaofei did not suffer any hardships when he was a child.

Before the age of 5, Zhang Xiaofei's childhood was very happy.
Whenever she is free, her parents will take her around.
When Zhang Xiaofei turned 5 years old, her mother began to let her participate in various interest classes, hoping to expose her daughter to different things.
Among the various interests, Zhang Xiaofei's favorite is dancing.
This is also the thing she has insisted on for the longest time.
In order to let her daughter receive more professional training, Zhang Xiaofei's mother entrusted someone to find a famous dance teacher.
Because the dance class where this dance teacher is located is far from Zhang Xiaofei's home.
Therefore, Zhang Xiaofei's mother will personally pick up her daughter to learn dance every day.
At that time, although Zhang Xiaofei was still young, he never cried bitterly when he was learning to dance.
Even on a snowy day, she never left a lesson behind.
Winters in the north are exceptionally long and cold.
Sometimes because the dance practice is too late, Zhang Xiaofei and her mother can only walk home for a long time.
On the road full of ice, Zhang Xiaofei's mother also fell down several times.
These scenes were all written down by Zhang Xiaofei one by one.
Zhang Xiaofei, who grew up, wrote about this matter on social platforms.
She described her mood at that time with this sentence:
"We were really bitter at that time, and I thought you were strong and great."
In Zhang Xiaofei's view, it doesn't matter how hard and tired she is when she practices dancing by herself.
She only felt sorry for her mother and had to accompany her every day.
However, effort pays off.
After learning to dance for a few years, Zhang Xiaofei was successfully admitted to the Central Ethnic Dance Major.
This year, Zhang Xiaofei was only 11 years old.
But at that time, she had to leave her hometown alone, go to Beijing to learn dance, and start the days of north drift.
From a small county to Beijing, Zhang Xiaofei took 6 years to complete this goal.
The hardships were known only to her.
Zhang Xiaofei, who arrived in Beijing, did not dare to relax, and there were many talents in the school, and if he did not work hard, he would fall behind.
Therefore, Zhang Xiaofei was more diligent than before.
She made a detailed study plan and had to get up early every day to practice the basics.
Four years later, 15-year-old Zhang Xiaofei was admitted to the Chinese Armed Police Cultural and Labor Corps.
She was one step closer to her dream of dancing.

Just when everyone thought that Zhang Xiaofei would shine in the dance.
She made a surprising decision.
After four years in the Chinese Armed Police Cultural and Labor Corps, Zhang Xiaofei gave up his dream of dancing.
Instead, he chose to apply for the Beijing Film Academy.
Zhang Xiaofei is a person who likes to challenge.
When she found that she preferred to enjoy being an actor on stage, she resolutely chose the path of an actor.
In 2005, Zhang Xiaofei was successfully admitted to the Beijing Film Academy.
She became classmates with Yang Mi, Yuan Shanshan and others.
Because he had never been exposed to acting before, Zhang Xiaofei worked extra hard and won many scholarships after that.
Compared with other classmates, Zhang Xiaofei seemed too quiet.
But that's her character, not arguing, just doing what she wants to do.

It is worth mentioning that even Zhang Xiaofei never likes to be in the limelight.
But she is still the highlight of the class.
Because Zhang Xiaofei has excellent professional knowledge, he is a well-known academic bully.
If the students don't understand something, just ask her directly.
At that time, in addition to Yang Mi, a child star, Zhang Xiaofei was also favored by teachers and classmates.
Everyone thinks that the two of them have a bright future and will break through a career in the show business circle.
Especially Zhang Xiaofei, although she had been learning dance before.
But she is very smart, she knows a little about acting, and she is born to be an actor.
In addition, Zhang Xiaofei received a film appointment when he was a sophomore.
The heroine of two films in a row is something that others envy.

The sophomore played the heroine, and then no one cared
In 2007, Zhang Xiaofei, who was studying at university, was selected by director Shen Dong to star in the movie "Beacon Lady".
In the movie, Zhang Xiaofei played the heroine Lin Xiaotong.
She has since started her acting career.
In film school, every student dreams of being chosen by a director.
Because it means they can officially enter show business and open up their popularity.
Therefore, Zhang Xiaofei at that time undoubtedly became the object of envy of all his classmates.
Her classmates envied her for acting without leaving school.
The following year, Zhang Xiaofei received another play.
Actress in the movie Shakespeare of the Pie.

At this point, Zhang Xiaofei completely became a well-known figure in the class.
Before she graduated, she had already acted in two movies.
In 2009, Zhang Xiaofei successfully graduated with the first place in his major.
After that, Zhang Xiaofei was admitted to the China Broadcasting Art Troupe with excellent results.
Became a host with a staff.
From learning dance to becoming an actor, Zhang Xiaofei seems to have gone very smoothly.
In these aspects, Zhang Xiaofei has achieved good results and has become a role model for many people.
However, what happened next made Zhang Xiaofei's life fall to the bottom little by little.
In order to continue their dream of being an actor.
Zhang Xiaofei was the host while going to the crew to look for opportunities.
However, reality soon gave her a blow in the face.
Zhang Xiaofei ran into walls everywhere and did not receive a play.
Even if Zhang Xiaofei was once the heroine of the movie.
But because those films weren't well known, few crew members knew her.
Therefore, Zhang Xiaofei can only take time to be a host and earn a meager salary to make ends meet.
In the face of difficulties, Zhang Xiaofei did not want to give up.
She still harbors a dream of being an actress.
In order to show more face on the big screen, Zhang Xiaofei can only go to various crews to run dragon sets, hoping to get more opportunities to act.

However, in the most difficult time, Zhang Xiaofei did not even have the role of dragon set.
Once the protagonist of the film, she faced the dilemma of not filming.
In the years after graduation, Zhang Xiaofei spent the most difficult time in his life, sometimes unable to eat.
In a later interview, Zhang Xiaofei described those days this way:
"Starvation became commonplace then, and I often couldn't even remember when I ate my last meal."
As the first professional in the past, he is the best in the eyes of teachers and classmates.
Now he has become too much to eat.
Zhang Xiaofei, who started from a high starting point, did not know how her life had become like this, and she could not find the answer at that time.
Zhang Xiaofei participated in the program
Just when Zhang Xiaofei's acting career plummeted.
Yang Mi, Yuan Shanshan and others became popular for a while.
With the broadcast of "The Legend of Paladin 3", Yang Mi became a hot actor.
Find her director one by one.
In 2011, Yang Mi even relied on the play "Palace Lock Bead Curtain".
It has become one of the "four small flowers after 85" and has gained a firm foothold in the entertainment industry.
After that, Yang Mi even wired Yuan Shanshan and introduced her to director Yu Zheng.
Under the support of director Yu Zheng, Yuan Shanshan also began to emerge in the show business circle, which was liked by many audiences.
Compared with Yang Mi, Yuan Shanshan and other classmates.
Zhang Xiaofei's acting career is like falling into a "strange circle".

Whether it's playing the main role or playing a supporting role.
The film and television dramas that Zhang Xiaofei has starred in are not popular.
If you study carefully, you will find that Zhang Xiaofei plays a similar role type in those film and television dramas.
In this way, Zhang Xiaofei slowly "fixed" his acting path.
The rest of the directors naturally did not ask her to act.
During that time, in addition to starvation, Zhang Xiaofei was often ridiculed by the producers.
In an audition, a female producer said directly to Zhang Xiaofei:
"Your face looks a little weird."

This made Zhang Xiaofei very stunned.
She didn't know exactly where her face was strange.
Although Zhang Xiaofei is not a melon face beauty in the traditional sense.
But she is also not the "ugly woman" that people call her.
In fact, it is not that Zhang Xiaofei really looks strange, but that she was too "small coffee" at that time.
In the showbiz circle that pulls high and low, without fame, it is doomed to be ridiculed and looked down upon.
Zhang Xiaofei is such a situation.
Become a sketch actor and star in "Hello, Lee Huan Ying"
No background, no drama, no resources, as such a "three no actors".
Even if Zhang Xiaofei tried harder, it would not help.
Just when Zhang Xiaofei's life fell to the bottom.
The appearance of a person completely changed the trajectory of her life.
In 2012, 26-year-old Zhang Xiaofei met Jia Ling, 30.
Zhang Xiaofei finally ushered in a new turning point.
At that time, Jia Ling had already opened her popularity through "Sesame Open Door".
At that time, Jia Ling's sketch "Woman's NTh Power" was missing a supporting actor.
So she found Zhang Xiaofei.

For Zhang Xiaofei, who has studied acting.
Playing the role of a sketch is not a problem.
But in the face of Jia Ling's warm invitation.
Zhang Xiaofei was still caught in the entanglement.
Zhang Xiaofei's original dream was to become an actor, not a sketch actor.
However, after careful consideration.
Zhang Xiaofei still agreed to Jia Ling's invitation.
In fact, when there is no food to eat, you can first let go of your dreams.
Filling his stomach and saying that this was Zhang Xiaofei's plan at that time.
Zhang Xiaofei, who played the sketch
Although sketch actors do not have as much weight as actors, they at least have a salary.
It can allow Zhang Xiaofei to temporarily get rid of a poor and destitute life.
In this way, Zhang Xiaofei opened his own road as a comedian.
With the help of Jia Ling, Zhang Xiaofei participated in programs such as "Comedy Story" and "Happy Comedians".
In 2015, Zhang Xiaofei also partnered with Feng Gong.
He starred in the sketch "Little Cotton Jacket" and appeared on the stage of the Spring Festival Gala.
Since then, Zhang Xiaofei has often appeared in the CCTV Spring Festival Gala and won the love of some viewers.
In addition to acting in sketches, Zhang Xiaofei did not completely give up his dream of being an actor.
Zhang Xiaofei and Feng Gong starred in the sketch
At a time when the economy has improved to some extent.
Zhang Xiaofei began to go to various crews to find opportunities to act.
Once, while filming, Zhang Xiaofei's eyes were unfortunately injured.
However, before Zhang Xiaofei could deal with his wounds, the crew members scolded.
Scolded Zhang Xiaofei with a bloody head.
At that time, Zhang Xiaofei unconsciously shed tears.
She did not shed tears because of the pain of the wound, but because of the setback to her self-esteem.
In the years of acting, Zhang Xiaofei was tired and tired of filming, and she never cried.
Only when his self-esteem is frustrated, Zhang Xiaofei will cry.
When the good sister Jia Ling learned of Zhang Xiaofei's encounter, she immediately posted on the social platform:
"Little actor, fate is really cheap, quickly become a big name!" You are one drama away from becoming your sister's idol. ”
Although Jia Ling's words are very direct, this is the current situation of the entertainment industry.
The entertainment industry is a vanity fair, and unsung actors can only endure all kinds of unfair treatment.
When filming, Zhang Xiaofei always has various scars on her body, which makes Jia Ling feel painful.
In 2016, Jia Ling, who was independent of the portal, established the Big Bowl Entertainment Media Company.

That year, Jia Ling signed Zhang Xiaofei.
She became the company's first female artist to sign a contract.
Jia Ling and Zhang Xiaofei are not just the relationship between the boss and the employees.
They are sisters who share suffering and are confidants who can talk to each other.
In this year, Jia Ling put the sketch "Hello, Li Huanying" on the stage.
This skit is also the prototype of the film of the same name.
Partnering Jia Ling is still Zhang Xiaofei.
In his sketch career for many years, Zhang Xiaofei has been Jia Ling's "royal" partner.
As long as Jia Ling and Zhang Xiaofei stand on the stage, the two will burst out different sparks.
After becoming a signed artist of Big Bowl Entertainment, Jia Ling constantly let Zhang Xiaofei participate in various programs.
This increases her exposure.
With jia ling's support, Zhang Xiaofei's career is slowly on the right track.
Although at this time, she still tepidly starred in some sketches.
But she has also been invited to a number of variety shows.
In 2019, Jia Ling adapted "Hello, Li Huanying" into a movie.
Let Zhang Xiaofei play the role of Li Huanying.
At the time, no one knew that the film would become a dark horse.
It will earn more than 5.4 billion at the box office in the future.
This is Zhang Xiaofei's second time to become the protagonist after many years, and she cherishes this opportunity incomparably.

During the filming, Zhang Xiaofei was very dedicated.
Even if she was injured, she continued to shoot after a simple treatment.
Become a "national mother" and return to the "strange circle"
There is a volleyball scene in the movie.
This is a big challenge for Zhang Xiaofei, who has never played volleyball.
In order to present the most authentic side in the movie, Zhang Xiaofei deliberately learned to play volleyball.
During the filming of the whole movie, Zhang Xiaofei never complained.
As soon as there was a little dissatisfaction, she would ask for a remake.
It is precisely because of Zhang Xiaofei's professionalism that Li Huanying, who has touched countless people.

After the release of the movie, Zhang Xiaofei became popular overnight.
She has become the most well-known "national mother".
It is no exaggeration to say that the movie "Hello, Li Huanying" has made Zhang Xiaofei gain a firm foothold in the entertainment industry.
From a "little transparent" to a top actress.
Zhang Xiaofei's value has changed dramatically.
Before the movie was released, Zhang Xiaofei went to attend a ceremony.
The organizers didn't even prepare her place.
When those traffic stars sat around the round table and chatted, Zhang Xiaofei, who was wearing an affordable dress, stood next to him with a cramped face.
Even the staff present did not break the siege for Zhang Xiaofei, and the scene was very embarrassing.
However, who could have predicted that Zhang Xiaofei would make a gorgeous turn after that.
Become the hottest female star of 2021.
When Jia Ling became the world's highest-grossing female director, Zhang Xiaofei also successfully won various awards.
After this, Zhang Xiaofei, who participated in the event, was already sitting in the second row, which was enviable.
As the saying goes, "red gas" raises people.
At this time, Zhang Xiaofei's whole body was radiant.
In the past, she could only wear some affordable clothes.
Now Zhang Xiaofei has put on high-end brand clothing such as Prada.
Only from the clothing point, we can see the change of Zhang Xiaofei's coffee position in the entertainment industry.
With the popularity of Zhang Xiaofei, the clips of her previous participation in variety shows and being bullied were once again found.
In 2018, Zhang Xiaofei, who participated in the variety show "I Am an Actor 2", became a partner with Sun Qian and received a lot of cold eyes.
Because of "The Biography of Zhen Huan", Sun Qian became a well-known star with "Aunt Qin Xi".
Zhang Xiaofei participated in the program
Therefore, when participating in variety shows, Sun Qian always ignored Zhang Xiaofei's request and even forcibly changed her words.
These behaviors of Sun Qian made Zhang Xiaofei crouch in the corner and cry silently.
From rehearsal to acting on stage, Sun Qian, who plays a big name, has not played against Zhang Xiaofei once.
Let Zhang Xiaofei become a tool person to foil her.
And when he participated in the program "Youth Alumni Association" with Yuan Shanshan and others.
Zhang Xiaofei encountered a similar thing again.
Yuan Shanshan and others were a bit famous, and they joked with Zhang Xiaofei.
Say she snores when she sleeps.
Before Zhang Xiaofei was red, Sun Qian, Yuan Shanshan and others bullied her, and no one supported her.
But after becoming a "national mother", Zhang Xiaofei's true love fans suddenly increased a lot.
Under the maintenance of these true love fans, Yuan Shanshan can only apologize to Zhang Xiaofei on social platforms.
During that time, as long as it was Zhang Xiaofei wearing clothes.
Even used cosmetics will become a bestseller.
On December 30, 2021, Zhang Xiaofei was even more outstanding in the movie.
Won the Golden Rooster Award for Best Actress, the scenery is unlimited.

On the podium, Zhang Xiaofei did not say that he had previous hardships, but tearfully thanked Jia Ling.
Zhang Xiaofei's luckiest thing was to meet Jia Ling.
The two people who felt sorry for each other cheered each other up, which broke out of the sky.
2021 is Zhang Xiaofei's highlight year.
Her every move will be noticed, and she has become a veritable A-list actress.
Just when everyone thinks that Zhang Xiaofei will continue to develop in the entertainment industry with such a momentum.
She seemed to have disappeared.
Only one year later, Zhang Xiaofei's name no longer appeared frequently in the headlines of major platforms.
In addition, it is difficult to see Zhang Xiaofei's figure on the big screen.
Whether it's a skit, or a film or television drama.
Zhang Xiaofei seems to have returned to her "strange circle".
Zhang Xiaofei was not easy to become popular, and she should have seized this opportunity to get more resources.
However, during this critical period, Zhang Xiaofei's "National Fan Support Association" was actually disbanded.
You know, as long as you are a popular star, there will inevitably be a fan support meeting.
Whether it is a pick-up, or a variety of programs to help.
This fan meeting will be very useful.
However, Zhang Xiaofei's fan support will be gone.
Her traffic and resources are greatly reduced.
At the same time, Zhang Xiaofei also jumped from the "old owner" and left the big bowl entertainment.
Signed a contract with Zhao Liying's Hesong Media.
Since then, Zhang Xiaofei has slowly faded out of the audience's sight.
Zhang Xiaofei once said in an interview that she wanted to get rid of the nickname of "national mother".
Try different roles in acting.
However, for now, Zhang Xiaofei has not yet achieved this goal.
"Hello, Lee Huan Ying" is still her only masterpiece.
In fact, Zhang Xiaofei did not need to rush to transform himself.
Since the audience recognizes her "mother" role, she can continue to develop in this direction.
After all, in the rapidly changing entertainment industry, new people are emerging, and anyone can become a top star.
The chance to become famous is fleeting.
Zhang Xiaofei, an actor who has been precipitating for ten years.
I hope that she will once again surprise the audience with her superb acting skills in the near future.
What do you think are the reasons why Zhang Xiaofei became a "little transparent" in the entertainment industry after he became popular?
