Fala Chen is very much anticipated about her upcoming TVB series working with Idy Chan, Damian Lau, & Joe Ma starting next month. “I’m very anticipated to collaborate with Idy Chan, in the play she & I will have many scenes together, her portrayal of SLL really deep roots people’s heart”. Joe Ma, “the scandalous king” which the media call him. Fala Chen doesn’t believe that working with Joe will cause any negative rumors between them.

[I know almost nothing about Fala Chen, she’s in the news a lot, & she often appears very appealing. I too don’t know much about Joe Ma, but there’s so much negative tabloid news about him. He’s married with kid & seems to be a nice, family man, who happens to be better looking. I guess people tend to perceive that handsome guys are unfaithful & flirtatious? I know that there won’t be any speculations about Idy & other co-stars in this series, but then again, others always reference her as SLL & that, perhaps, annoys her. ]

    yah i agree. i’m sure Idy wants pp to remember her as THE actress Idy Chan, instead of the character she portrayed.

    i know nothing about Fala Chen either. i’m pretty much clueless about the newest generation of artists. about Joe, not looking forward to watching him, but oh well…

    Hmm…seems like both Joe and Fala is looking forward to collaborating with Idy. So glad to hear that. Yeah, I agree with you that the press tends to refer to Idy as SLL and she’s annoyed with that (actually, I’m quite irritated with that too).

    As for Fala Chen, somehow, I think she resembles Idy to a certain extent. Her looks and smile, I mean. For those who don’t know anything about her, she’s Miss Chinese International 2005 first runner up and you know TVB tend to promote their pageant winners a lot these days. I have a hard time understanding her accent though.

    As for Joe, I never really liked him. Yeah, and all his rumors, I don’t like. I don’t even think he’s handsome. He usually plays the evil and greedy type of characters that gives me a bad impression on him.

    Idy and Damien pairing up. I use to dislike Damien a lot after watching Yesterday Glitters and An Awakening Story, but he kind of redeemed himself in The Drive of Life. So I’m fine with him pairing up with Idy. He’s a great actor even though he looks kind of old now.

    I can see that Joe isn’t somebody’s favorite here! HAHA! That’s interesting to hear there’s some resemblance between Fala & Idy? I would prefer to see Idy plays opposite Adam Cheng, who ages better than Damien Lau. I believe they are almost the same age.

    really? i always thought Damian is younger than Adam, cuz he looks younger. if they’re at the same age, then Adam ages better but Damian still looks younger to me.

    about Joe, i got negative impression of him from watching his villain roles. i think i 1st saw him in Kindred Spirits, in which he was a player. he was married, but still lied to Kenix to fool her. his most unforgettable performance, to me, gotta be his role in At the Threshold of an Era. gosh, he was so convincing that i cant bring myself to like the actor. he’s an excellent actor, that i must admit, but still, his character Yip Wing Jun still leaves a deep negative impression on me.

    i actually hope that Idy could pair up with Michael Miu; Adam is a good choice as well. however, i’m glad she could work with Damian. i havent seen them collaborate before so this should be refreshing. she had worked with Adam several times so i dont anticipate them as much.

    Perhaps it’s been such a long time since I last watched Damien Lau’s work, I don’t think I have anything against him or any roles that he played. Maybe TVB will have Miu & Idy working together on the next project? Let’s just hope so!
