Fala Chen Hopes to Reprise Her Role in “Triumph in the Skies” Film

With Francis Ng (吳鎮宇) and Chilam Cheung (張智霖) confirmed to resume their roles in the Triumph in the Skies <衝上雲霄> movie, Fala Chen (陳法拉), who played bubbly pilot trainee Holiday in the drama, also hopes for the chance to reunite with her co-stars in the upcoming film.

Fala left TVB in May 2013 after working for the company for seven years. Wishing to break into the more lucrative film industry, the 32-year-old enrolled into acting classes while taking a break at home in the United States. Soon she appeared in her first post-TVB film, Tales From the Dark 2 <李碧華鬼魅系列:奇幻夜>. Towards the end of 2013, Fala took another extended break to spend the holidays with her family, and announced that she will film Mainland dramas in the new year. Her previously completed Mainland project, The Sound of Desert <星月傳奇>, is also scheduled to air in China in 2014.

Returning to Hong Kong recently, Fala attended a film premiere on March 24 where she spoke briefly about her interest in joining the Triumph in the Skies movie cast. Admitting that she has not been offered a part in the movie, Fala believes that the film version may have a completely different format and story, and would not be too disappointed if she is left out from the casting list. “We have already filmed everything for the drama. I actually think that my character is complete as is.”

Even if she misses out on the opportunity, Fala still gives the film her blessings and hopes that it will be as popular as its small-screen counterpart. Because she is allegedly on bad terms with the crew after arriving to work late while shooting the drama, some believe that Fala has little chance of appearing in the film. In addition, producer Tommy Leung (梁家樹) had earlier expressed that he is considering Mainland actresses for the film’s lead female roles, making Fala’s casting even more unlikely.

    I thought I read it as Fala Chen getting the part in the film and I felt my heart stop. I’d hate to see her in the film.

      Tavia? Lmao Tavia’s only market is television series. I have yet to see her in a movie.

      Tommy wants an A-list actress aka GYY, LYF and the likes. No TVB actresses currently match that level of popularity.

      • Fox replied:

        Moreover acting in movies is different to TV series. So it’s more reasonable for Tommy to aim the movie actresses.

        I think MW dun understand that to have such a funny suggestion.

    I don’t wanna see her in Triumph in the Skies movie version. I have had enough of Holiday in the sequel. We need actress with high caliber to carry the film. Don’t ruin it once more. I’ll be devastated.

    I love to see Fala Chen in the movies because her acting is not bad plus her appearance is so beautiful, cute and attractive. Chinese actresses may be better in acting but no pure and pretty like FC.

    Fala’s character in TITS2 is annoyed. Also, I don’t like her acting. I skipped most of her parts.

    I’m so happy she is not in it. I despised her terrible acting in TITS2. She did okay in some scenes, but others like crying, she completely falters. I think Michelle Ye has a decent mainland fan base right? If anything, they should bring her back. I would love to see that. Oh yea, please don’t screw things up again.
