The drama has been well-received by viewers in Mainland since it’s aired and ranked among the top favorite dramas by netizens. They also wish to have Damian Lau’s and Idy Chan’s characters ended together. However producer Waikin Chong explained “The drama already filmed with satisfactory ending, no need to film another finale.” Many TV stations already purchased syndication rights for the drama.

陳玉蓮早前亮相無綫台慶亮燈後,即趕返內地繼續探訪工作,未能出席《名媛望族》其後的宣傳活動,重擔相信要落在拍檔松哥及楊怡身上。

There’s 2 live promotion events for “Silver…” 《名媛望族》, one already happened on the 15th of this month, but Idy can’t attend on both. Director Chong Waikin explained “Nothing much we can do, Idy could only attend the Anniversary Lighting, because of her work obligation in mainland China, she needs to go back there, quite sad, so she’s put the burden of promotion work on Damian Lau and Tavia Yeung.”

Note: The 2nd function will happen today

At the interview for TVB program “Best Actor” 《最佳男主角》 hosted by Luisa Maria Leitão 黎芷珊 this week featuring Tony Leung 梁朝偉, Anthony Wong 黃秋生, and Andy Lau 劉德華. Once again, Andy answered on his relationship with female artists in the circle like Anita Mui 梅艷芳, Rosamund Kwan 關之琳, and Idy Chan 陳玉蓮. He said “I did tell Idy my feelings, but she simply just gave me a smile.” Later he gave up knowing Idy was dating Chow Yun Fat 周潤發. “She could have been my girlfriend” he expressed.

In the afternoon on Sep 22nd after just returning from Tibet, Idy Chan immediately rushed to a cosmetic center in Guangzhou. As it’s already winter in Tibet, and still wearing a thick leather jacket, she had no time to take it off to get ready for the grand opening of “Meien Medical Aesthetic Hospital of Guangzhou”. At the event, Idy was quite interactive with the fans on answering questions about beauty, however the focus of the talk was about the girl name Hua Yanwen whose face was genetically masked with big “mole” on 2/3 of a cheek and often bullied by peers. After the ceremony, the “Love Clinic” established and the manager together with Idy presented the girl $10,000RMB and free of charge for her first treatment at the center.

Idy also briefly mentioned her role in the upcoming “Silver Spoon, Sterling Shackles” 名媛望族 “The character is quite resentful, just reading the scripts alone made me want to cry, and there’s crying in almost every scene.”

It’s believed that Andy has agreed to film a drama for TVB with Eric Tsang’s 曾志偉 pursue, and it seems that Chow is also in the talk to film for TVB also. It’d be great if Idy be part of these dramas as a guest cameo. In the meanwhile, I’m impatiently waiting for the airing of “Silver…”

不可有獨立思想 不能常聯絡家人
陳玉蓮收徒注重樣靚身材正

金庸筆下的小龍女特立獨行,現實中的陳玉蓮亦自成一派,「我相信有神的存在,但我不是基督徒或天主教徒,跟隨師父多年,無論靈性與智慧,我都有很大進步。」近半年來,她穿梭國內不斷行善,其中一個重要項目,是「收徒弟」。「面試了好幾百人,幾乎都是家境貧困的女孩,如果可以跟到我,那是非常幸運,可說改變她們的一生。」

三年前拍罷無綫劇集《原來愛上賊》,陳玉蓮又轉趨低調,除了偶爾客串港台節目以外,她全力修行與行善,不常在港;最近海港城與聖雅各福群會復康服務合辦「泥造人 樂造人」陶藝展覽,身為聖雅各福群會陶藝工作室創辦導師的蓮妹,亦因身在內地未能出席開幕禮,找着蓮妹,伊人正身在重慶。「最初,是一位日本陶藝家告訴我,很多大學都有藝術治療,一邊教人、一邊自己學習;智障人士做陶瓷,不應該着重展品得到幾多人讚賞,在反覆將泥土搓爛的過程中,讓我們重新改造、自我反思,就算是我這些所謂『正常人』,一樣要學懂謙虛,真誠地面對批評,勇於承認自己的不是。」

我說,蓮妹積極行善十多年,很偉大,她果然回應得很真:「我係咪好偉大?都係o架!譬如上山區要行幾個小時,很多人說,陳玉蓮可以用錢解決一切,叫人去行不就可以嗎?但我寧願親力親為,這不是要大家覺得我偉大,而是要了解實情,就一定要身體力行,好讓其他人知道,凡事並不是唾手可得。」作為義工,她希望給弱勢社羣最大的幫助,最近的一大動作,是計劃挑選幾個年齡介乎十三至十七歲的小妹妹,收為徒弟。「這個年紀的小朋友,思想未固定,如白紙一張,好教 啲;但兩年前,有一個廿多歲的女孩,剛讀完大學,跟她說我的理念,她立即願意跟我。」跟蓮妹幹些什麼呢?「主要做義工,我也會找專人教她們打功夫、英文、禮儀,當我做代言或其他演藝工作,她們就會做助理;除了照顧起居飲食,我還會定期給錢她們的家人。」

不排除收男徒弟

◄校長宣布陳玉蓮想收一名徒弟,幾百個女學生隨即如蟻附羶、蜂擁報名;但接見了所有人,蓮妹說,仍未有一個完全合她心水。

蓮妹收徒的淵源,始於幾年前替港台主持節目,接觸了「青鳥」與「紫藤」兩個關注性工作者團體,有機會跟一些來自四川、重慶、貴州的年輕女生傾偈,留下深刻的印記,決意要幫助她們脫貧。「我不可能幫助所有人,做善事一定要認清自己的能力,好多人做義工,未學懂游泳就跑去做救生員,救人不成淹死了自己。」她收徒的概念獲得貴州政府支持,一間學校的校長對着全體學生宣布:「陳玉蓮想收一個女徒弟,有人願意追隨她嗎?」全校千多名女學生,有三、四百人立即響應,湧到蓮妹面前報名,場面哄動。「大陸有一孩政策,有人提我:『陳玉蓮,父母不會將孩子交給你的!』但若是聰明的話,就知道跟隨我的好處,有些家長一聽我的理念,即時就說:『什麼時候帶我的女兒走?』」為什麼不收男生?她笑:「我不懂帶男生,大家一起生活,還是女生比較容易溝通!不過,我也不排除會收男徒弟,最好性格溫馴、身材健碩,陪着我一起入山區,比較有安全感。」

在貴州見了好幾百人,還是不合蓮妹眼緣,後經朋友介紹,收了兩個小妹妹,共同生活了一個月,蓮妹說她們仍未算正式徒弟。「好多條件都爭,我一定要白裏透紅,身材好,不是model那種,我要豐滿型,男人看女人,看靚女人都會舒服啲,我要天天對着她,當然希望有個漂亮女生在身邊。」蓮妹收徒講求外在條件,又會提供一連串學習機會,是想培育弟子進入娛樂圈嗎?「完全不會排除這個可能性,但也要看她們有沒有這個材料,再因材施教。」

突然好想拍打戲

有幸入門,成為陳玉蓮的弟子,需要遵守什麼戒條?「沒有什麼特別戒條,她想走,隨時都可以,唯一是不可以整天聯絡屋企人,如果我們剛好到她的鄉下做義工,譬如成都,她當然可以回家放假;作為學徒,也要百分百服從,不可以有獨立思想,意見固然可以提出,但不能脫離我們的想法。」有云養一個小孩要四百萬,雖然蓮妹想收十三至十七歲的弟子,但起居飲食與教育經費也屬不菲,錢從何來呢?「沒有任何人捐獻,一分一毫都是我、師父與幾位同修師兄弟一起集資的。」據聞之前蓮妹曾在香港與加拿大分別中過兩次彩票,獲得合共五千萬獎金,故將之回饋社會乎?她有點遲疑,但還是禮貌地笑着回應:「這個好難答你……總之,是我與所有同修一起出錢吧!」

師父認為,蓮妹應該將自己的修行告訴年輕一代,最直接的方法,就是拍一部電視劇,讓更多人認識或記起她,再宣揚自己的理念,是以零七年她復出接拍《原來愛上賊》,之後無綫再為她度身訂造一部功夫劇,卻因檔期間題而押後。「我突然好想拍打劇,TVB好疼我,本來為我開拍一部以太極高手李暉為藍本的古裝劇,檔期都傾好晒,但開拍前TVB說,因為另一部劇要多用十幾天廠期,但我的期完全不可以調動,結果拍不成,我也覺得好可惜。」這股忽然冒起的「打氣」猶在嗎?她哈哈笑:「還在呀!有些人聽完會說:『你這把年紀還拍打戲?』我說很有趣呀,希望稍後有機會成事吧。」
