When youth runs headlong into talent it’s hard for audiences to wait on the sidelines for the natural progression of experience to catch up. C-actor Wu Lei has been on a tear since his breakout teen role as the sidekick to Hu Ge‘s main character in Nirvana in Fire, a role he filmed when he was just 13 years old and now he’s 17 and hitting all the potential out of the park already. The baby face has turned lean but the smile and twinkle in his eye is all that star factor which seems to comes naturally to him. C-netizens are taking note of his December birthday which makes him two months away from turning 18 years old and legally an adult. It’s not for any sleazy pining inasmuch as it’s an excitement to see him ready for young adult roles and what he will continue to impress in terms of reaching his potential. This latest Chic magazine pictorial definitely captures all his visual gawky at the cusp of manly aura perfectly.
