Despite the lawsuit drama with SM Entertainment and his departure from EXOLuhan has been having the time of his life with the box office success of his Chinese movie, “Miss Granny“.

With his newfound fame in China, the former idol group member has been offered to star in multiple films. One of the films he is set to star in is “The Great Wall”, an upcoming movie by Zhang Yimou.

On 2nd July, Luhan attended the movie’s press conference in China alongside the director and the official cast members. It was a star-studded event as Hollywood A-lister Matt Damon and Hong Kong legendary singer-actor Andy Lau were among the cast who attended the press conference.

Best known for his role as Jason Bourne in the “Bourne” film series, Damon’s recent film credits include “The Monuments Men”(2014), “Interstellar” (2014), and “The Martian” (2015). We can very well assume that he could’ve left the audience swooning, especially when he debuted a new hairstyle during the press conference.

However, his charm was eventually overshadowed by Luhan’s popularity in China. When asked how he felt about working with so many Chinese cast members, Damon stated “it’s been a great experience”, despite being a little overwhelmed at Luhan’s fans who turned up at his hotel in China.

He added:

I think the first night where we started shooting there was something like 400 flower arrangements came to the hotel and took up the entire hallway.

Andy also jokingly added that he thought that flower arrangements were for him.

Matt Damon is starring as a battle-scarred mercenary in search of treasure in the 15th-century-set sci-fi flick that has a budget of $150 million. Pedro Pascal, who is best known for his role as Oberyn Martell in “Game of Thrones”, will play his sword-wielding partner. Willem Dafoe (of “Spider-Man” fame), Jing Tian, Zhang Hanyu, Eddie Peng, Lin Gengxin, Zheng Kai, Chen Xuedong, Huang Xuan, and Wang Junkai are also starring in the movie.

Luhan, who plays a soldier, recently took to Weibo to share all his selfies with the cast members.

Take a look at his selfie shots with the cast in the gallery below:
