在美国好莱坞，每个年轻演员都盼望哪一天能够一举成名。实现这一梦想的途径之一，就是在一个大明星突然生病的时候，被邀请去替代那位大明星来拍电影 。“代替别人”就是我们今天要讲的习惯用语 fill the shoes.
Idiom：fill the shoes
Meaning: to take the place of some other person and do that person's work satisfactorily. (As if you were wearing the other person's shoes.)
1. But despite wearing Diana's ring, Kate will be free to carve her own future, William said: No one's trying to fill my mother's shoes.
