Recently TVB has been criticized for going down the "Heavy Flavor" (unacceptable/disgusted things) trend. Following Kate Tsui's 1 second gang rape scene in Highs and Lows, Tavia Yeung's rape scene in Silver Spoon, Sterling Shackles and Samantha Ko's rape and back-revealing scene in Friendly Fire, yesterday Sire Ma reveals she's the next victim in new series Will Power and will have a rape scene as well.
Sire is currently filming new series Will Power with Wayne Lai, Moses Chan, Fala Chen and Vincent Wong. In the series, Sire plays a manager for Lengmos and has to look like a Japanese girl. For this role Sire dyed her hair into a blond color, but because of an allergic reaction, her hair has been itching and swelling. She said: "I cannot dye my hair because I get allergic reactions and TVB did tell me not to do dye it, but this time I insisted to do it." Sire expressed she's paired up with Vincent Wong and they will have intimate scenes together, including a bold back-revealing scene. Recently, there has been a chain of rape scenes in TVB series, when asked if she'll be a victim too? She exposed: "I do have one, but I will not say who my co-star is yet. I hope everyone can feel that I'm a devoted actress and will take on different challenges."
The TV scale in TVB series is getting bigger and bigger and has been attracting a lot of attention. Some people requested TVB to reduce the "sprinkling salt flowers" (porn) in their series, Will Power producer Tsui Jing Hong explained: "Although the recent rape scenes have been hot topics, but the rape scene in Will Power is necessary for the storyline and it is not what the public is saying, that there is a 'heavy flavor' trend." Producer Tsui expressed the rape scene has drama elements to it, his TVB costume dramas in the past had rape scenes too, but he has no intention to make rape scenes the selling point of the series. "Rape scenes indeed have a drama effect, especially for law series. Rape cases are seen in Chinese, Japanese and Korean dramas." Producer Tsui does not hope rape cases will get all the attention, audience should also pay attention to the storyline before and after the rape case and not on the raping process, "I don't understand the online culture, rape is clearly a terrible thing, but why do people want to see a longer rape scene? Why do they want to see the actress show more meat or if there are any exposures?"
They haven't filmed the rape seen yet, but Sire has already done the kiss scene with Vincent. The two started off as a couple, but Vincent exposes his true nature later in the story and rapes her. Producer Tsui said: "Artists will communicate with their co-star and the director before filming. Actually, we all know the TV scale, if there are people who have their own imaginations on the rape scene or feel dissatisfied and look down on it, then I can say as a professional in the television field, this is a stupid thought. If there are people who anticipates to see the scene, then I suggest you not think too much and just focus more on the storyline."
