Tavia Yeung and Michael Tse were shooting a marriage proposal scene for TVB new series Justice Pursuit & Attack on the busy street in Causeway Bay. Nearly 500 bystanders and tourists watching the scene, pushed through into the restricted area and obstructed the shoot. On camera, there were suddenly a few hundred extra temporary actors that appeared, this time TVB really profited! Tavia Yeung can't help being too charming, one four eyed man successfully got close to her and kept taking pictures, which frightened Tavia a bit and didn't know what to do. In the end, a staff had to come in and protect her. Because of the crowded street, at one point, the police came by to check on them.
In one scene, Tavia and Sharon were taking a stroll on the streets and were surrounded by a large group of pedestrians. During the time, a four eyed man dressed in a white suit came close and stared at Tavia and took close up shots of her. Tavia was a little frightened, but remained calm. The staff besides her immediately went forward to protect her. Tavia later expressed: "That man wasn't a temporary actor. Actually that's how it is when shooting on a busy street, I wasn't frightened. I was just afraid it would hinder us from shooting the scene. We have to use time wisely to complete the scene." Tavia stressed she didn't have any body contact with the man because she was protected by the staff around her. Asked if the four eyed man's eye expressions made her feel uncomfortable? She said she didn't care and didn't look at him.
Later, the scene where Michael proposes to her was a big deal. He first told Otto Chan to lay out the red carpet, and then dressed in a white suit, Michael sang Tavia a love song on the red carpet to confess his love for her. Good friend Sammy Leung was by his side capturing the whole thing on video, while Sharon Chan and Benz Hui were on the side cheering for them. Tavia appeared very surprised. Later, the two had a dance in front of the 500 onlookers, but didn't have any kiss scene.
When asked why she didn't have a kiss scene with Michael? Tavia said: "That's how the scene was arranged, I rejected him and then left. This is one of the big scenes in the middle of the series, it's pretty shocking, but not too difficult." When asked if she had ever thought of how it would be like when rumored boyfriend Him Law proposes? Tavia laughed: "Most important is to find a suitable partner, doesn't have to be anything big. We already have too much attention, artists shouldn't have too much attention, just let nature take its course and everything goes normally, I'll be happy enough."
Michael gets rejected, the Crowd goes silent
When Michael did the proposal scene, his face and ears turned red. Everyone cheered when he made his proposal to Tavia. Michael laughed and said, he was so nervous he started sweating and his heart beating loudly: "That moment felt special, the live audience really made a nice atmosphere. Just now when Tavia rejected me and left, the entire crowd at Causeway Bay went silent! That was a very real reaction, priceless! It made me think of back when I proposed to my wife, the young man feelings all came back! Its quite cute. (Did you know Tavia was frightened by a man staring at her?) I had people approach me too, only thing is to try best to protect her during idle time."
