Jason Chan Gains Acting Skills from Wayne Lai
Missing You <幸福摩天輪> is the first drama featuring Jason Chan (陳智燊) as the male lead. Lacking filming experience compared to veteran actors, Jason admitted that he was nervous when he initially began filming. Luckily, his chemistry with Linda Chung (鍾嘉欣) later kicked in, which made everything run along smoothly. Currently, Jason is busy catching useful acting skills from collaborating with TV King, Wayne Lai (黎耀祥), in the drama, The Love Firm <傳愛事務所>.
Jason revealed that in the past, he would busy himself by simply memorizing the script of a drama. In doing so, he neglected the importance of other factors associated with acting, such as his emotions and movements. Fortunately, there were many kind and experienced actors such as Wayne Lai, who would provide him with tips and reminders.
“I learned a lot by working with Wayne. Usually, I thought that I could just enter the film set and start filming as soon as I had my lines memorized. But when I saw how much preparation Wayne made, I started following his approach. He had several annotations marked on his script, and it is much more organized that way.” Jason said.
Would Jason want Wayne to be his mentor for acting? He replied, “I had thought of that, but I think acting while I learn at the same time is the best.”
Not Interested in Girls Within Entertainment Industry
In the past, Jason occasionally had rumors with Sarah Song (宋熙年). He once again denied these rumors, but revealed that he does not mind them. “I’ll see it as a way of publicity! Of course, it should not hurt my image.” Jason told the media that he is single at the moment, and he will not date a girl within the entertainment industry. “Sometimes, we won’t know things until we try. I believe communication is the most important thing. I know that it is hard to give your other half a sense of security when you’re in the industry, since girls are easily jealous. However, I feel that if I am truly dating someone, I have the confidence to provide my girlfriend with a sense of security!”
Since Jason grew up in Great Britain, reporters asked whether he prefers girls from foreign countries or traditional Chinese girls. “It doesn’t matter, as long as she has a quiet, dutiful, and caring personality.” Jason laughed and went on, “My past girlfriends were all like that, but nobody in the world is perfect.”
