TVB drama, Never Dance Alone <女人俱樂部>, received positive reception since airing. The drama follows a group of high school friends, who are now middle-aged women, search for happiness and reconnect as friends again. Executive Producer, Eric Tsang (曾志偉), is thrilled by the drama’s success and hopes to make a movie version. Although he wants the female cast to resume their roles, Flora Chan (陳慧珊) was reportedly so difficult to work with that she will be left out of the new movie.
Carman Lee (李若彤) shined the most in her role as a meek housewife who repressed herself to please her husband, mother-in-law, and daughter. Eric was reportedly most impressed with Carman’s natural acting, ageless beauty, and fit figure. Due to Eric’s preference, this led to Rachel Lee‘s (李麗珍) reported jealousy.
Eric treated the cast to a recent trip and spoke about upcoming plans to make a film version of Never Dance Alone, which will be released by his newly established production company. He openly praised Carman in front of everyone, while Gloria Yip (葉蘊儀) glued herself by Eric’s side hoping to increasing her onscreen time. Fennie Yuen (袁潔瑩) and Alvina Kong (江欣燕) downed too many drinks and ended up in an argument, which still left them upset the next day after.
As an award-winning actress, Rachel did not want to have less screen-time and remain in Carman’s shadows in the new movie. Angie Cheong (張慧儀) is uncertain whether she will have time to take on the new filming project, as she will be busy taking care of her adopted son, Hanson, and managing her business in Mainland China.
When Eric reached out to discuss the movie plans with Flora’s husband, Mike Chung ( 鍾家鴻), he allegedly asked for an outrageous filming price. Eric decided to drop Flora out of the project since she was also repeatedly absent from promotions for the TVB release of Never Dance Alone.
Carman Lee Hopes Original Cast Can Return
Currently enjoying a boost in popularity after returning to television screens, Carman is swamped by a host of job offers. During a radio interview, Carman said she is uncertain about the details for the Never Dance Alone movie, but would be interested in the project and hopes that the original cast can return. Asked on rumors that Flora Chan will be ousted from the movie and her relations with Rachel Lee, Carman said, “Flora is a work colleague, but I’m very friendly with Rachel! When Eric organized an celebratory trip to Taiwan, Rachel and I went too!”
