    Default Charmaine Sheh & Joe Ma's 4th Time Together



    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.

    You are right SehSeh, the customes in here arent pretty. Pre-modern series gerenally have very gorgeous customes, the Cheong Qui (spelling??) are always so beautiful and I honestly think those dresses brings out our eastern beauty BEST (especially if you have the body and legs for it... haha).

    And the hair... OMG, that'll need some getting used to. I think I'll have to try extra extra extra hard not to let that bother me too much. Why cant they stick with the "Monroe" curls and call it a day? Sometimes unique it good, but this is just WEIRD!

    Default Blessing ceremony

    Liza Wang advise sick cast member to take leave



    [Singpao 19/03/08]

    TVB new series "The Turbulence Of East And West" led by Liza Wang, Charmaine Sheh, Joe Ma, Edwin Siu and Raymond Wong held blessing ceremony at filming studio yesterday. The cast prayed for a smooth filming. With the recent spread of flu disease, some of [HOG2 ] cast fell sick and they had to stop filming a day to disinfect the studio. When asked if she was afraid of the flu, Liza noted that everyone must be careful.

    When asked how many days have Liza started filming, whether it's tiring and if she is worried of getting sick, she gave a big reaction after hearing the questions: "Choi (touch wood)! We have to be careful. If anyone feel unwell they should take leave. However, I have already taken a health check before starting work. I was surprised by the reporters because they rushed toward me as soon as I got off the car." They also asked if she have called Sir Run Run Shaw to ask about his condition, Liza expressed that she did not. She didn't contact Madam Fong, but she hope that there's nothing serious with Uncle Six (Sir Run's nickname) and he is healthy as always.

    Charmaine says that she like working with Liza, because she could always go back on time and sometimes even a few hours earlier. When asked if she knew about [HOG2] casts stopping filming and the studio have to be disinfected from flu, Charmaine expressed that she is not too worried and they did the same thing during the SARS period. She will be taking vitamin C and supplements to strengthen her immunity system. She excitedly disclosed that after finishing filming the parts in Hong Kong, they will be going to Zhongshan to film outdoor scenes. It turns out that Zhongshan is Charmaine's ancestor hometown. They will be filming there for 3 weeks and if she have free time, she will be visiting her relatives because she never went back before.

    On the other hand, this is Edwin's first series after signing management contract with TVB. Previously he has been filming series in Beijing. He is given the opportunity to work with solid actress like Liza and Charmaine in his first series. When asked if he is used to the filming here, Edwin expressed that though it's his probation period, he feels okay because the cast and crews are kind. Hes also happy working with a group of good actors since he could learn from them. When mentioned that everyone have to be punctual when working with Liza, Edwin indicate he knew this therefore he has always been punctual for work.

    To accommodate his new role, Joe tanned his skin and lost around 10 pounds. Due to the influenza, a lot of schools closed early for holiday, therefore his son is also on holiday. Because his son enjoy a lot of different extracurricular activities, he will be more careful during this influenza period.

    Easterly have a more faster plot and less complex storyline, in fact at first I don't have high expectation in the series (man chor era being not exactly everyone's favorite) but turns out that this series is quite good. In fact the ever-complaining-picky hk discussion forum members voted preference of Easterly over Gem.

    Liza's character is a bit different from her previous bossy roles, her character is interesting.
    Raymond and Charmaine pairing is quite sweet too (cheesy, but still cute)

    So give it a try.

    only liza is good in this series,
    the way charmaine talks is SO annoying. can't stand it.
    Frankly I don't see a difference in the way she interprets her roles, from maiden vow, to 7 sisters with gallen and anne heung, you can just slot her scenes from this series into any of the other series in the same era, and they will flow, because she doesn't bring any depth into her character.
