[Oriental / TheSun] Yesterday Idy Chan Yuk Lin & Fala Chen had an outdoor scene for “Thieves With Principles (lit.) 盜亦有道” in Tsim Sha Tsui. Many passers-by were interested in seeing Idy, while many young men showed approval of Fala’s “nice dress”. Two generations of beauties surely guaranteed the market.
After 4 hours of shooting at a noisy location with Cheng Tse Sing the day early, Idy almost lost her voice & showed signs of having a cold. She thought producer would give her a couple days to rest, but the shooting quickly resumed yesterday. Idy said “The other day bumping into Liu Kai Chi, he advised me mentally prepared for laborious work, but for now I can deal with it. (Did this ever cross your mind things would be like this?) “There’s no original storyline, must read from the scripts, I never experienced this, quite strange, perhaps it’s the trend.”
Though Idy quickly adapts to acting again, probably with good relations with the crew & their encouragement. She even had a jump up to a foot high, & applauded by the staff that she’s not really old, making Idy didn’t know if she should laugh or cry. As for the new Fala, Idy commented “She’s quite initiative, hearing me asking questions on costumes, she gives me advices, very helpful hands.”
In the series, Idy & Fala will be playing a pair of good friends, but Fala on the first day of shooting showed a little anxious “She’s senior, I’m a little nervous. She’s really pretty & has good skin. I asked her about beauty tips at break time. She actually didn’t put on makeup for many years & only used water to wash her face.” Asked if Fala’s afraid that “senior” Idy would steal “the scene”, Fala said “No, she’s very natural in front of the camera, she’s really gentle.”
[I’m glad to see the media seem to cover the filming process of this series. I admire & envy people with good skin either by beauty secrets or genetically & I believe the latter plays the major part in having clear skin. Sadly I inherit bad genes. Good thing that Idy is playing Fala’s friend instead of the aunt or the mom! ha! It’d be totally major if I get to see Idy’s filming outdoor scenes when I vacation in Hong Kong next month, argh probably filming is done by then? Just a wishful thought!]
