Just a few days ago, I received an email from this film producer/director/consultant asking for Idy Chan’s representatives. At first, I thought it was one of the million spams that supposed to go into my “Spam” folder everyday. Then I googled the name of this producer, it’s so surprising that s/he is credited in many television works in the States and Canada. So I quickly replied back that I’m simply just a fan. The person replied me back within minutes asking if I would happen to know the name of Idy’s manager/agent, and once again, I disappointed the filmaker’s arguably genuine request.

Certainly that Idy isn’t in high demand in HK showbiz anymore and especially with her brief comeback for TVB’s “Catch Me Now” and cameo in Ann Hui’s docudrama “The Way We Are”, she received heavy and unwarrantable criticism from media, audience, and even her own fans. But what surprised me, that there’s still random filmakers out there are still interest in her. Of course, I wouldn’t know for sure if the true intention of this filmaker looking for Idy, but I bet anyone would quickly guess that the email is asking for her to offer a role… right?
Anyways, if Damian Lau didn’t meet Idy when filming in Vancouver, and if Idy wasn’t there at that very moment, we could never get to see her on screen again, the world would be completely out of touch with her. And that’s how I feel now since she disappeared after CMN to live her quiet humble life.
