Last Tuesday (4/3rd), the Silver Spoons, Sterling Shackles cast went up to Shanghai for outdoor shooting. TVB has been known to race against time when shooting series and also with the hot weather in Shanghai, the cast were naturally drying up. Lead actress Tavia Yeung shoots daily around the clock from 5am to 2am, and when taking the makeup hours into account, she practically gets no sleep at all. Suffering for 5 days in that kind of schedule, Tavia eventually falls ill. With her high fever, Tavia had no choice but to bring along her runny nose and continue shooting. Being the 'First Sister' really isn't as easy as expected!
After being with TVB for so many years, it is known that Tavia is a hard worker, but in the recent year she fell ill while shooting for The Other Truth where filterable bacteria got into her chin and she had to take half year off. This time, for the 40 episode Silver Spoons there are often last minute script changes, but her schedule in HK wasn't too tight, so it was pretty comforting for the 32 year old Tavia in the beginning.
However, why would TVB let you slack for that long? Last Tuesday, the majority of the outdoor scenes were set in Shanghai Film Park. Since the cast was so large, the crew was split into two. As the lead actress, Tavia had scenes with both of the crews, shooting day and night. One of the Staff revealed: "She was already not feeling well when she got to Shanghai, but had to work every single day. Basically she was in every scene. She worked from 5am to 2-3am, even an Iron Man would die!"
