TVB new series Special Duties Unit was doing outdoor shooting in Cyberport. Joe Ma led the SDU team to catch the king of thieves Kenneth Ma. There will be a barge-into-fire scene as well. Joe said without hesitation that shooting this series is very difficult because already many artists had been injured. This series also has several car chasing, jumping car and other dangerous action camera shots that haven't been shot yet, so the entire crew will be even more cautious. Asked if he requested for a stunts double to replace him? Joe expressed that he will urge for safety, if the scene is too dangerous, he will use a stunts double. He hopes to do the scenes himself as much as possible.
Yesterday it was Kenneth's 37th birthday, but he has to spend it at work. He said that after work he will meet up with his family to have dinner and celebrate. Speaking of his birthday wish, he joked: "I currently don't have a car, property or a girlfriend, I hope to get all three!' To start reaching for his 3 goals, first he's to buy a house and then pursue a girl, otherwise he won't have a place for them to meet. Asked what standards he has for choosing for a girlfriend? Kenneth wants a gentle, filial and home-loving girl because he personally likes to stay at home. Also, at his age, it is not suitable for him to be out in nightclubs or sing overnight karaoke.
Jessica Hsuan stationed in TV series, no intentions to develop outside
This Valentine's Day, Jessica Hsuan prepared a gift for her boyfriend. She said her boyfriend is not as romantic as everyone imaged because he's South African, her boyfriend was clueless about Valentine's Day, and even asked Jessica if Valentine's Day falls on February 14th every year. It was only after Jessica gave her boyfriend training that he understood how to celebrate with her. Recently, it was rumored that Charmaine Sheh and Bowie Lam aren't going to renew their contract with TVB when it ends and instead they plan to head out to develop elsewhere? Jessica felt that everyone feels differently and there are many factors to consider. If they feel that there are more opportunities outside of TVB, then it wouldn't hurt to give it a try. Asked about Bowie Lam not renewing his contract? She said: "Bowie is already at that stage where he has no demands, working outside may not be for the money." Jessica felt that shooting TV series suits her the best, she likes to work together with a big group of people, gives her a sense of security and stability.
