[Idy seems to have adopted a new signature, it’s totally different from her own in the ’80s and ’90s. Do those look like her English names initials? When she attended the 12th Golden Bauhinia Awards back in September with Simon and from QQ Video clip, she signed her name really quick & short. Andy is so artistic!]
[AppleDaily] Poster for “Thieves With Principles (lit.) 盜亦有道”
[Translated by Kit] Idy Chan 陳玉蓮 returned to the showbiz and has been busy shooting for TVB series “Thieves With Principles (lit.) 盜亦有道” over a month. She said she was quite surprised by the late release of the scripts and that the situation was very bad indeed. Good thing is that Damian Lau 劉松仁 has taken good care of her and the two enjoyed the filming very much thus she didn’t have any regrets of coming back.
Idy and Damian shot outdoor at St. Stephen Bay a day before. It seemed that they hit it off quite well and often paid for each other’s coffee. Damian said jokingly, “Women are born to be treated well” so they were happy to be working together. When asked if Idy had gotten used of filming. She chuckled, “Till this moment, we always received the scripts on the set in the last minute. I haven’t thought the situation was this bad. We even don’t know what to shoot next so how can we act and link the scenes together? And it’s difficult for us to arrange the clothes in order to make the shots consistent. (Have you regretted of the return?) No. But just didn’t expect something like this.”
Vote for Lee Si Kei 李司棋 and Michelle Yim 米雪 in the TVB anniversary
Since the plot is not consistent there are at least 3 scenes needed re-shooting. Idy and Damian has often changed scripts to fit their roles. Had she spoken to the producer? Idy grinned, “I’d asked Damian if it was the working pattern nowadays and he just told me stop questioning. He did speak to the producer but now he would say nothing and just sits aside. Anyway, some movements & scripts are impossible to fulfill as required by the plot. But I don’t need to speak it out since Damian will do it for me so I feel comfortable.”
Idy will be showed up as a guest to present the award of “Most Favorite TV Female Character” in the coming TVB anniversary. She said she was not familiar to the current female’s artists so she will vote for Si Kei and Michelle.
[Thanks to Kit for the translation! Last-minute/on-the-fly scripts are probably a new trend in filming industry. Good to see that Damian is there to take care problems for Idy & they get along well. Haha, veterans like to work with veterans and happen to see more veteran faces these days in the news.
Ray Lui 呂良偉 appeared on Stephen Chan’s Be My Guest 志雲飯局 & expressed that he’s interested in working with veterans like Damian Lau, Ha Yu 夏雨, Lee Si Kei and Roger Kwok 郭晉安, read full news here. And it seems that Mrs. Micheal Miu 苗僑偉, Jamie Chik 戚美珍, would be officially returning to the showbiz anytime now, she’s working on some performance for The Return of Enjoy Yourself Tonight [EYT] 再會歡樂今宵, read more here.]

[These clips are really one-of-a-kinds. It’s so funny how Idy started answering “half and half” for questions via voice distorting microphone and Andy played along. Very cute.]

[It’s interesting that Alfred Cheung 張堅庭 queried Idy about her life majority of the time in this episode. They mentioned they did work together before, that is Alfred directed a movie in which Idy and Simon Yam 任達華 were in. Anyways, I still don’t understand how this game played, perhaps I need to catch an episode of US version on NBC to get an idea of the game.]
[TVB’s Deal or No Deal] [Nov 4th] Idy Chan 陳玉蓮 appeared as the contestant on episode 27 [of Season 2 or episode 2 of Season 3] at Hong Kong TVB version 一擲千金 Deal or No Deal. She won the deal of HK$44,000 (~ US$5660).
[Download raw RMVB via BT here. I watched the “moment” clip on TVB website and not sure when this episode was filmed or it’s a live episode, but Idy’s voice was still hoarse and she spoke at low pitch. I just hope Thieves With Principles 盜亦有道 wouldn’t be her first and last TV series for her comeback, because its filming seems to take a toll on her. I’m kinda aware of the US American version of Deal and No Deal, but never actually see it so don’t really understand the game.]
