[TheSun] Idy Chan 陳玉蓮 hadn’t acted for more than 10 years, recently she just finished up filming a TVB series “Catch Me Now 盜亦有道”. Originally, Idy thought it’s just a small “homework assignment”, but in the end she feels like returning to the old road and still has interest (in acting).
Back in the old days Idy’d film until the wee hours of the morning, however it didn’t occur to her that there’s no difference now “I didn’t realize that filming until 5-6am, and then starts again next day at 9am, so many days I didn’t get to go home and had to sleep in the car. Though I didn’t know that TVB has new regulation that cars can’t be parked over 24 hours, so I have to drive the car out and in. Then I tried to rest at artistes’ restroom but the air is no good, and causing me coughing non-stop all night.” Although it’s a long filming process, Idy still thinks that her situation is not that bad “Seeing the cast of “The Gem of Life 珠光寶氣” situation, must do all dress up and make up to film. (Will you ask for certain break time on next filming?) Actually it was clearly discussed but just didn’t work out, nothing could be done.”
Asking if Idy’d film again, she frankly said “Really don’t know! (No more interest?). No, it’s just I myself as a pious person has violated my own rules, must self reflecting, leading a pious life is tough, must not repeating bad habits, I see myself having so many problems.”
Embracing kids but not Damian Lau 劉松仁
Idy set out “Three No’s” from the start and refused holding hands with leading man Damian, but she tightly hugged her son in the series, Idy laughed “No problems at all with kids, it’s all about age discrimination. However Damian once said that all depends on the women’s wishes, can’t be forceful.”
