News: 东山飘雨西关情

Charmaine Sheh & Joe Ma's 4th Time Together
28 February 2008

Liza Wang (汪明荃) led the cast of new TVB series The Turbulence Of East And West <東山飄雨西關晴> at the show's costume fitting ceremony today. Celebrated recently for her new image of being the bossy mother-in-law, Liza has a new screen family for this period drama in the form of Charmaine Sheh (佘詩曼) and Joe Ma (馬德鐘). Also in the cast are Raymond Wong (黃浩然), Selena Li (李詩韻), Edwin Siu (蕭正楠), Kiki Sheung (商天娥), Evergreen Mak (麥包) and Rocky Cheng (鄭健樂).

Adopting the personality of her bossy character, Liza laid down the law by announcing that no-one was allowed to check their scripts after entering the set and everyone had to arrive on time. Later, she said that she was just joking and smiled that she believed none of her colleagues would have such bad habits.

Playing a couple again for the fourth time in the new series, Charmaine and Joe were asked if they were worried about starting up rumours again during filming. They both said that they were not worried at all because the gossip generated in the past was extremely false and they know each other very well now, so there is no longer any danger of it any more.

Charmaine's character is a very bold young lady who builds a successful business up from a humble congee cart. She revealed that her character will have romantic ties with Liza's two screen sons, Joe and Raymond, but is prevented from marrying into the family by the bossy mother.

Asked if she was worried about having conflicts with her future mother-in-law, Charmaine said tactfully that seniors should be respected. As for whether she would be prepared to live with her in-laws, she said that it was hard to say at the moment, because it would depend on the situation. She added that she would not like to be abandoned when she grows old. However, she said that many older people are very open-minded now and will allow their children to enjoy their married life.

Ivy: Pretty busy today...taking some lunch time off to update. Some comments on the costumes...terrible especially for Liza's costume. Looks so granny. Hope there will be some changes to the costumes of the main casts in the series. Also Lydia's funeral was yesterday and want to share with you guy's Joyce Cheng's tribute speech to her mummy. A nicely written speech.

"Have you ever seen a shooting star? They are rare and you can only see them in the sky for a moment. When they appear, they glisten and shine. Mum, you were my shooting star. It is not your infectious smile or your trademark hairstyle or glasses that I will remember, because these were not the elements that made you. You were always the shimmering shooting star in yourself."

Joyce, Lydia will not only be your shooting star but every one of ours too.

Also the tribute will be broadcast live from the Hong Kong Colliseum on this Sunday, 2nd March 2008 starting from 1.20pm on Astro Wah Lai Toi, Channel 311. TVB8 will also be broadcasting it on the same time.

Ivy : That Charmaine fan is too nervous. Haha. When she was asked if she has a question to ask Charmaine she kept on giving well wishes instead. Haha. Charmaine kept on grinning and in the end gave her a shoulder hug. If I were her hmm I'll ask Charmaine loads of questions until Tavia's sister(the reporter) would have to say stop stop!! Alright maybe not...maybe when I am in her position I would be too star strucked too! Enjoy the clips!

updated March 1st!

Got to know from Joyce that fan is actually her cousin! Haha. And she is not a Charmaine fan and Tina already gave all the answers to her beforehand! That's so funny and planned! No wonder she had no questions for Charmaine! And Charmaine already knew that it was planned. I'm betting Joyce would gladly exchange positions with her cousin.
