Linda Chung and Ruco Chan Hang Mid-Air in “Big Wheel”
Linda Chung (鍾嘉欣) and Ruco Chan (陳展鵬) were filming on location at Kowloon Bay (九龍灣) for TVB drama, Big Wheel <巨輪>.
In one scene, Linda has to climb down from a tall building to escape from gangsters, and is stuck hanging onto an air conditioner. As she is about to fall to her death, Ruco arrives in time to rescue her. In order to escape, the couple hugged each other tightly, and jumped from the building onto a delivery truck.
This is not Linda’s first time performing a stunt where she has been suspended in mid-air, but this scene required her to hang from 3 stories high. She was screaming from time-to-time, and needed to take breaks to calm down during filming. Linda had a stunt double for some shots of the scene, but in the most dangerous scene, she chose to jump with Ruco onto a delivery truck.
When the crew was hoisted them up on the wires, Linda appeared to be very nervous. Luckily, the scene was finally completed when Linda and Ruco bravely landed without any injuries. The crew and the production team applauded Linda and Ruco for a job well done.
Earlier, Linda revealed that the story of the new drama is set around the 1990s. She borrowed some her of mother’s old clothing from the era to wear during filming. She said, “My mom is happy to be my fashion consultant and told me to chose whatever I like. She even took pictures of her 90s wardrobe and sent it to me.”
As for filming the dangerous wire-suspension scene, Linda said she had a similar experience while filming an ancient drama, but this time it felt more real. She said, “I treat it like it’s free bungee jumping at an amusement park.”
In addition, Ruco praised Linda for being professional. Appearing in several police dramas, Ruco had experience with many action scenes. Ruco also revealed there will be quite a few car-chasing scenes in the new drama. The martial arts team from Shaw Brothers was responsible for the wire suspension scenes, which gave Ruco assurance.
