“Highs and Lows” Cast Reveal Inside Scoop During Filming

By on September 28, 2012

“Highs and Lows” Cast Reveal Inside Scoop During Filming thumbnail

It is no question that Highs and Lows <雷霆掃毒> is one of TVB’s most anticipated and talked-about series of the year, perhaps due to the fact that Raymond Lam (林峰), TVB’s biological son, and veteran actor, Michael Miu (苗僑偉) co-lead in this dramatic and action-packed series about the Hong Kong Police’s Narcotics Bureau.

To promote the highly rated series that is currently airing, TVB Magazine asked their thoughts about the roles they played, providing an inside glimpse of the filming process.

Michael Miu (苗僑偉)

“We seldom see TVB series revolving around drugs and narcotics, so I thought the content was very fresh.  I also admire the staff doing a lot of research for the drama in order to portray the material accurately. For example, I didn’t know that the Narcotics team had to learn how to make drugs.”

Regarding his character’s stubborn approach in relationships, Michael said, “It’s my first time working with Elaine Ng. In the series, we are divorced with a son. Although she wishes to get back together, my character didn’t want to because he knows that the lines between good and bad are blurred in his life and he didn’t want to involve them.”

Elaine Ng (吳綺莉 )

“I never felt that I could star in police dramas because I’m so tall. I always felt that it is more believable when I portray a professional in the modern day, so this role was perfect for me. Although I had a few action scenes, most of my work is sitting in the office so it’s much easier compared to the other cast who had to run constantly!”

Kate Tsui (徐子珊)

“In order to get a better understanding of my role as a drug addict, I visited a rehab center to study the behaviors of drug addicts. I remember seeing a man who looked well-educated and clean cut walk in for a cup of Mei Sa Tung. Then when he left the facility, he spit part of the drink into a plastic bag and put it away.  I later learned that addicts do that in order to save it for later when the addiction hits or sell it for money. I couldn’t believe that I witnessed it personally, it was an eye opener for me.”

Raymond Lam (林峯) 

“I was a little chubby when we first started filming, so I think the director purposely put me in so many running and chasing scenes so I could lose weight. This is my first time filming an action-packed drama and it’s much more difficult than filming a period drama, because you don’t have a lot of beautiful and natural surroundings to distract you. Every single punch, roll and fall was real. Luckily I had the stamina to withstand it all during filming.”

Ben Wong (黃智賢)

“My character’s ambition and strive for perfection led him in the wrong direction, because he kept using a lie to cover another lie. I tried my best to act out his inner struggle, but when it comes to the action scenes, that is a different story. I remember filming until 2 AM and I was exhausted from the  running. Since all the clinics were closed, I had to look for a masseuse. We’re not stuntmen after all, so the action scenes really took a toll on our bodies.”

Ella Koon (官恩娜)

“Filming an action series is quite difficult. There was a time where I was running so much that my thighs could no longer move! It was also my first time holding a gun and I had to learn how to pull the trigger without closing my eyes. After filming for a while and getting used to it, I started to love the thrill and excitement of filming in an action drama.”

    1. Veejay says:

      I think that’s the first honest statement I saw coming from LF.. LOL “I was a little chubby while filming the series..etc” I actually laughed at the comment but at the same time, salute him for being honest ;)

    2. simplitee says:

      I love this series so far! Action packed, face paced and witty dialogues! Oh and not to mention how cute and smart Wai Sir is! :D

    3. Fox says:

      So far the series is good. Better than all TXB one I watched this year with fast paced melody and intense contents. Like it.

      • shu says:

        very good drama so far,but LF sucks as a an police officer,he simply lacks the authority.he try to play cool but it is actually overacting, he looks more like a triade member than a police,a laughing sir wannabe i think,but he fell totally in his attemp.

        • Fox says:

          I get you :). LF sucks in your mind, ok. He is doing good job in my mind, ok. Not a problem.

          Btw I think Heung Sir in the beginning is closer to Laughing Gor than Happy Sir. Heung Sir acted undercop and he is the cool but emotional guy. Happy Sir is more of a smart but weird guy. He dun act cool, he is just himself and doesn’t care for other.

        • shu says:

          dont misunderstand me i have nothing against LF as a human being,actually he is really a good guy in real.i hear a lot good things about him.

        • Fox says:

          Yup, he is nice to fans, good mannered. Not all Txb artists Ive met can do the same thing.

    4. Addy says:

      This drama is so far so good! There were some illogical parts in the first 2 episodes that got me thinking wtf, but it’s getting better. I hope the rest of the drama will keep up with this pace of suspense.

    5. Hannah says:

      I’m loving the pace of the series. Very action-packed in the first week. Hope it can continue with the momentum.

      HAL reminds me a lot of LOO. Best series? Very possible. Also, TVB should stick to cop series.

    6. Xue feng says:

      Best series in 2012!!! Thumbs up for Raymond!!

    7. Michael says:

      Elaine Ng just looks weird. Googled her and learned she looked fine when she was young and won Miss Asia. But she was most famous for having an affair with Jacky Chan.

      • Larry 3 says:

        She looks so out of place especially with her figure, why cast her?

        • shu says:

          do you ever hear about network in this circle? not only in this circle but the whole fk society depends on network,if you dont have,you never come far in this world,no matter how good you are.

      • Fox says:

        I just find she really looks alike with Linda Chung.

        Her parts are a big draggy but I think she did ok.

        • Sherrie says:

          worddd^^ when i saw the poster with the peoples relationships ..i thoguht she was linda lol. And yea… she doesn’t seem comfortable when she acts..no expression.

        • Michael says:

          linda doesn’t have bags and double chin

        • sure-lee says:

          Elaine Ng looks like Linda Chung???? Sorry, but I find zero resemblance.

        • Nicole says:

          NO way she looks like LInda. Linda looks sweet. Elaine Ng is just ugly.

        • swtlav3ndar says:

          I totally agree with you Fox!! I watched Old Time Buddy – To Catch a Thief, released in 1998, a few months ago and I literally thought Elaine was Linda.

          It’s not fair to compare Linda to Elaine now since one is 28 and the other is 40. Plus, of course Linda has better make-up now compare to when Elaine was at her age.

        • Fox says:

          I still see the resembles, especially to Linda in person with less makeup when I saw her. But Elaine has smaller nose. She is like Linda of ten years lster

      • sure-lee says:

        I copletely agree. She does look weird…like, very odd. I can’t realy explain what it is, but it’s something about her facial features + expression.

      • Gar says:

        So far I’m enjoying the series after watching 5 episodes but I’m not too crazy about Elaine’s acting. Her expressions are very stiff and it’s so unnatural when she speaks her lines. Her scenes totally ruin it for me.

    8. ALovesFung says:

      Just love LF finally playing a cop! His character is cool and smart! LF is so handsome! Love Fung!

    9. Cynthia says:

      I don’t know about you but I see a strong resemblance between Elaine Ng (吳綺莉) and Linda Chung.. I had to look at her three times to realize it isn’t Linda! If anything, she can pass as an older sister of Linda!
