Following the success of Highs and Lows <雷霆掃毒> and currently in the running for the TV King award, Raymond Lam (林峯) has not slowed down a bit. Currently filming mainland Chinese drama, Legend of the Purple Hairpin <紫钗奇缘>, Raymond was spotted enjoying the cozy company of costar, Michelle Ye (葉璇).
Since their collaboration in 2002 TVB drama, Eternal Happiness <再生緣>, Raymond and Michelle finally have another opportunity to work together 10 years later. It appears that their chemistry since Eternal Happiness has not faded one bit. Although romantically rumored in the past, the pair only admitted to being friends.
As one of the producers for Legend of the Purple Hairpin, Michelle had specifically recruited Raymond for this project. Michelle admitted, “From the time we conceptualized the script, I already imagined Raymond to play this role. I can’t imagine someone else playing such a handsome and loyal character who can also fight!”
Immensely popular in mainland China, Raymond commands a price tag of $400,000 RMB per episode, which is even higher than Kevin Cheng’s $350,000 RMB per episode. Yet as a favor to Michelle, Raymond agreed to film at a discount rate.
Since he has become much more handsome since they last worked together in 2002, Raymond reportedly enthralled Michelle and captured her full attention. During filming breaks in Hengdian, Michelle and Raymond are always seen chatting up a storm, talking quietly but laughing and giggling loudly.
At the end of filming one day, Raymond and Michelle returned to the same hotel in separate vehicles. However, reporters noticed that Michelle’s vehicle was making circles in the proximity and not headed in any particular direction. Raymond’s driver was driving extremely fast, even speeding at times. After an hour of finally fending off the reporters, Raymond and Michelle were still nowhere to be seen near their hotel in the wee hours of the night.
