On the first day of filming, Alexander didn't turn up as he didn't have any scenes. On the second day, he had one scene. Arriving at 10 am, he didn't rush to get prepared, but instead he had sat down on a chair to observe the filming.

Due to Alexander's presence, even the actors without any scenes came. However, due to Alexander's frosty aura, no one dared to approach him or even come close to him, causing an invisible barrier of three meters around his spot.

During lunch time, everyone gathered for the packed food and Alexander was no exception. He accepted the food without any complains and began to eat silently.

He ate gracefully, emitting an aristocratic air. After his meal, he entered the dressing room to get prepared for his role.

The scene Alexander had today was with Helen.

Helen had started filming in the morning and was already prepared by lunch time. After Alexander was ready, Helen's makeup artist immediately came forward to touch up her makeup before the lighting and filming crew positioned themselves.

Alexander and Helen both debuted around the same time and had acted as a couple in multiple blockbusters. Both possessed good looks that matched each other, garnering the "Best on-screen Couple" title.

Since they had worked together multiple times, they were familiar with each other's working style. Even if they weren't acting as a couple this time, they were able to portray the atmosphere and emotions required for the scene perfectly. The smooth filming earned endless praises from the director as he continuously shouted, " Good! Great! Keep it up!"

Halfway through the scene, the director called for a break, signalling for the makeup artist to touch up their makeup.

Alexander took two sips of the water his assistant had passed him before waving it away. After getting his makeup touched up, he went to the filming location to wait.

After Helen finished touching up, they continued with the scene.

After getting everyone immersed in the filming previously, they also stunned those watching with their acting in the second half of the filming. They perfected the scene to the point people started to question if it was reality.

The second half of the scene finished successfully and, by the time the scene ended, the set was deep in silence. After about ten seconds, the director came back to his senses, shouting, "Cut."

After that scene, the filming for the day officially ended.

They were filming in a resort, and since the filming had to be done in private, the whole resort had to be booked, resulting in all the crew members having to stay in the resort hotel.

Since there weren't enough rooms for the full crew, only the more famous actors had an individual room. The rest shared a room with their managers.

After resting in the hotel room for a while, Isabelle and Camila both went to the restaurant on the third floor for dinner.

Dinner was buffet style, so they both took a plate of food each. As they were searching for a seat, producer Johnson, who was seated by the window nearby, waved to Isabelle.

"Izzy, sit here! We can discuss the filming for tomorrow."

Producer Johnson was seated at a table with six seats. five of which were already filled by the director, the male lead Jake, Helen, and Alexander, leaving only one seat empty. Coincidentally, it was the seat beside Alexander.

Isabelle walked towards the dining table with the plate. She hesitated and only when producer Johnson spoke to her again did she look up at Alexander. Her husband remained oblivious, chewing his food wordlessly. Isabelle placed her plate on the table cautiously before sitting down stiffly.
