Many talents of Deng
Deng Lun first rose to fame last year after appearing on the popular romantic drama Ode to Joy 2 (《欢乐颂2》).
But Deng almost gave up the chance to take on the big role before he even got started. After meeting with the show's producer and director, Deng felt that the role – a rock singer – was too different from his daily life. He couldn't imagine himself playing rock music and dressing like a rocker. But the director told him that he would be portrayed as the hardworking leader of a pop-rock band. In the end, everything turned out well for Deng.
This year, the two TV series he's appeared in – Sweet Dreams (《一千零一夜》) and Heavy Sweetness, Ash-like Frost (《香蜜沉沉烬如霜》) – have also been received well. In Heavy Sweetness, Ash-like Frost, which started airing on Jiangsu TV on Aug 2, Deng plays Xu Feng, a Fire Deity who is the second son of the Heavenly Emperor.
今年，邓伦出演的两部电视剧 —— 《一千零一夜》和《香蜜沉沉烬如霜》也获得了不错的反响。在8月2日江苏卫视首播的《香蜜沉沉烬如霜》中，邓伦饰演天帝的二皇子、火神旭凤。
Xu falls in love with the happy-go-lucky Jin Mi, the daughter of the Flower Deity and Water Deity. Xu is cold and serious as a deity and a leader, but he becomes much more gentle when he's with Jin. The two have to overcome a lot of challenges and heartbreak before they can finally be together.
Although it was the 25-year-old actor's first time acting in a fantasy period drama, he didn't find the fight scenes to be difficult. He said it was the more emotional scenes that were harder to deal with. “Heartbreaking scenes can be hard for actors, as they need us to express strong emotions that viewers can see and feel,” he told NetEase Entertainment.
