[22:21] 2012/01/24【 東方互動 專訊】 劉松仁、陳玉蓮、楊怡等日前齊為新劇《名媛望族》趕工,監製莊偉健細心炮製蓮子百合糖水慰勞他們,令眾人甜在心頭,雖然蓮妹角色思想複雜,但松哥卻大讚她能演出那份觸不到的氣質,令其驚喜不已,而後輩楊怡則演四姨太,笑言拍攝時不時向蓮妹偷師。


[Translation extracted from JayneStars] Despite the Lunar New Year holiday, Damian Lau (劉松仁) had to film TVB drama, Prominent Family < 名媛望族>. Despite being accompanied by “5 wives” on set, Damian did not feel better. Producer Chong Wai Kin (莊偉健) especially prepared a sweet lotus seed and lily bud dish for the cast and crew; Idy Chan (陳玉蓮) and Tavia Yeung (楊怡) fully enjoyed the dessert.

After Catch Me Now < 原來愛上賊>, Idy Chan and Damian Lau resumed their partnership in Prominent Family, in which Idy portrayed Damian’s second wife. Due to the complex character, Idy needed to warm up initially for the role; however, she became more immersed in her performance recently. Even Damian felt that Idy’s interpretation lent a unique temperament to her character.

Damian’s “fourth wife,” Tavia Yeung, wrapped up filming at 3 AM last night. Despite the late hour, Tavia and Idy ate the sweet lotus seed dessert at the studio and got along well together [despite their characters’ rivalry]. Tavia took the opportunity to learn acting tips from Idy.

[Translated by aZnangel @ AsianEU] Damian Lau and Idy Chan will have a bed scene
Damian Lau is very ‘lucky’ in TVB new pre-modern series The Prominent Family. Aside from pairing up with Idy Chan once again, Damian will also have four other wives — Mary Hon, Elena Kong, Tavia Yeung and JJ Jia. The age ranges from young to old. He laughed and said he can highlight the spirit of brotherhood in Chinese men through this role. As for luck of having so many wives, he laughed: “It’s not a benefit to me! It’s a benefit to them!”

Damian said his collaboration with Idy this time around sparked more than last time: “Because we have a bed scene, I have one with all my wives. Also my role has large emotional variations, I will be crying crazily!” Idy laughed and said in reality, Damian should find a young girl to moisten himself. He immediately replied: “Can just dream about it! Not necessary, I can’t handle it!”

Filming 40-episode long series, both Damian and Idy mentally prepare for lack of sleep.

This sales presentation clip for the series has been out for a few weeks already, but I didn’t notice Idy’s photo until recently…

OK, not sure what happened to the 2nd Madame on these first shooting scenes, but I can’t help having to pull out the similar scene from the famous “The Grand Canal”. “Princess” will always be “princess” <3
