Francis Ng and Fala Chen Dispel Rumors of Rift
Triumph in the Skies 2 <衝上雲宵II> producer, Sharon Au (歐冠英), dismissed reports of a rift between Francis Ng (吳鎮宇) and Fala Chen (陳法拉) on the film set of the anticipated blockbuster drama, as erroneously reported by Hong Kong tabloids v.
“The rumors are totally baseless,” producer Sharon Au exclaimed, “The reports were exaggerations of a scene from the drama they shared together a few days ago. Francis and Fala had previously collaborated in a film together, so they already have tacit understanding of each other. The whole production team knows that these rumors are not true. Fala’s love for acting is growing stronger, and she is a very hardworking actress. Why would Francis be angry at her?”
A crew member of Triumph in the Skies 2 confirmed Sharon Au’s statements to the media, and said, “Francis and Fala got along really well on set. Francis takes really good care of Fala, and he is also a great mentor to her.”
Francis is Fala’s Good Mentor
Fala Chen also dispelled the rumors in a long-distanced phone interview with the Hong Kong press. Fala laughed, “Francis is my idol! I will definitely do all my homework, and I will cherish all the learning opportunities he has provided me. I am very happy and blessed with this trip. Not only do I get to earn money for filming, I also get to travel to Europe as my first overseas filming experience, and I get to have my own personal teacher (Francis). Over 80 percent of my scenes for this trip will be with Francis, and he has led me well. Of course, this means that I must work even harder than before! Francis is really good at what he does. Not only is he an excellent actor, he is also very good at taking care of others. He will often pinpoint the parts I performed poorly in, and he will not hold back with the criticism. My pockets are very full!”
Francis Wants to Kiss Chilam
Francis denied the rumors in the same long-distance phone interview, and laughed, “They were all just for laughs. The tabloid reporter also apologized to us. I do curse, but never to a woman. After these rumors, I don’t think Fala and I would be rumored to be lovers next, right?”
The actor also humorously revealed that while they were filming in the town square, the crew encountered a town square LGBT kissing event. Francis laughed, “It turns out that there was a special event for gays to kiss. Too bad Chilam Cheung (張智霖) wasn’t with me at the time. If he was with me, I want to try it with him!”
Nancy Wu and Kenneth Ma are “Brothers”
In related news, Francis and Fala’s costars in Triumph in the Skies 2, Nancy Wu (胡定欣) and Kenneth Ma (馬國明) are rumored to be getting back together after breaking up earlier last year. The ex-couple were often seen hanging out with each other on set, and Kenneth was claimed to be patching up his relationship with Nancy, although the actress is already in a widely publicized relationship with advertising executive, Patt Sham (沈栢淳).
Nancy clarified the rumors through her Weibo, and wrote, “The story was over a long time ago. There was no illicit relationship nor was anyone getting back together with anyone. There was only love between two colleagues and best friends. It is that simple.”
Sharon Au also stepped up to defend Nancy and Kenneth, expressing, “Nancy and Kenneth have many ‘brotherly’ scenes in the drama, which explains why they are always seen together.”
