2007.11.07 Idy Chan has no regrets over making her comeback
November 6, 2007 at 16:20
[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.]

it’ll be nice to see the veterans returning to the screen. Jamie is a nice choice.
late scripts, this happened during the filming of At the Threshold of an Era as well. they constantly changed the stories so artists only received their scripts at the last minutes. this is tough!
like Idy, my vote goes to Michelle Mei Suet. however, she has a slim chance of winning, if not at all. Lee Si Kei is a fine choice. despites Heart of Greed’s popularity, i feel that the villainous character of Mei Suet in The Brink of Law deserves the award more than anyone.
