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.

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


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。」
