He accepted an interview with Sina Entertainment recently to talk about his experience filming the movie, his feelings after getting famous, and also his plans for the future. At one point, the interviewer asked him if he had any hesitations after seeing the script contained an upper body nude scene. Xiao Zhan responds, “Yes, yes…there is an upper body nude scene. My hesitation is that I am too skinny. I am worried after everyone sees it, they won’t have a good impression. Actually, I did gain some weight for “Xiaofan” at the time to fit the character more. So during that time, I didn’t restrict my diet. I don’t know what the result is after filming. Please be understanding, if you think I am too skinny.” Xiao Zhan revealed he was around 65 kg at the time, which is about 143 lbs.

His “dark past”

The interviewer also asked him if he would watch his prior works and reflect on what he gained and lost. Xiao Zhan said he does, but the interviewer asks if he watched all his prior series, he shyly says no. When asked which series he didn’t watch, Xiao Zhan doesn’t know how to answer and says, “Really this cruel? Anyways, I will choose one to watch.” The interviewer then brings up a funny series he had filmed and said his performance was good even though the series was kind of “silly”. Xiao Zhan is speechless and says, “It wasn’t good. It’s part of my dark past, but I think it’s fine. It’s part of my experiences growing up. Everyone can see my improvements.”

  1. I have been following Xiao Zhan and hope he continues to follow his dreams. It is first time I have followed anyone in Chinese entertainment. I think he has helped his country a lot by representing good qualities. Makes me respect the culture, and the people.

  2. Hi I do agree with Jamie….there is a price to pay for fame. So for us out here, can we give him the benefit of the doubt and let him grow into this industry. I am sure he will come out strong and might surprise us…let’s give him space to grow and breathe. I still love Untamed..call me old fashioned or traditionalist. I just love the setting and story. I am impressed with Sean and Yibo…

    Love from Fiji Fan..

    1. Xie-xie Margaret. Your comment spot on👌👍

      I’ve watched The Untamed the 7th time and never tire. As a diehard fan of classical wuxia genre, I’ll be rewatching it in future as when I miss it. Besides the casts espc XZ and WY, the heart-warming unique storyline of the two, it’s also the instrumental theme song entitled ‘WangXian’ throughout the series, the ziter and flute is zen-like hauntingly soothing and enchanting. It has become my daily morning must-listen-to theme music at home that includes the collection of songs album. Best wishes of a Happy Prosperous Chinese New Year 2020!

      1. I too am a fan of the Untamed series.As an American, I love the music of the theme song. Can anyone translate for me? What do the Chinese words mean in the song?

  3. Aah Xiao Zhan can be considered a newbie in the acting world. He is still young given time he’ll excell in his acting craft. Actuaĺy he has already shown his brilliant potentials in previous series. No doubt abt it he has what it takes to be a great actor – innate talent and diligence. Way to go Xiao Zhan! Take care of health whether u r buffing up or not. Also be conscious when in public eye. There’s a price to pay for being famous. Luv ur acting and yez can be better given more roles. Be watching u!👌 🥰
