TVB heavily promoted next generation successor Fala Chen, already started shooting series after series last year. She does not only win the 'Best Supporting Actress' award, but earlier TVB executive Virgina Lok praised her by name, that she will certainly be successful. The other night, Fala appeared as a successful businesswoman with ghetto looking man Louis Yuen in Mong Kok shooting for Shaw Brothers' new film The Fortune Buddies (A 'Fuk Luk Sau' film).
At 8pm, Fala was dressed as a successful businesswoman with Louis on the street shooting a first encounter scene. It was seen that Fala was quite powerful, surrounded by bodyguards defending her the whole time. After every camera angle, the two artists would watch the playback with the director and discuss on the next scene, very professional. As the shoot was coincides with dinner time, the streets were very lively and attracted a large group of passerbyers surrounding the scene to enjoy the shoot. At one point, the traffic was very congested as well.
Later, the group changed locations to a street market in Yin Chong Street and continued shooting. As the weather was blistering hot and the street was packed with street vendors, everyone was sweating all over. The assistants helped the actors wipe the sweat away. Had always been praised as a beautiful girl, Fala had her hairstylist fix her hair very often, extremely fastidious! Wonder if the shooting times were too long, but Fala's concentration started to decline. During the time when she and Louis were shooting their scenes, she NGed several times over 1 line, making Louis lose his interest.
