Fala Chen Suffers Severe Neck Injury

Fala Chen (陳法拉) is on the wrong side of luck. While filming for Ronald Cheng’s (鄭中基) latest directorial project Mysterious Treasure <神秘寶藏> in Guangdong’s Hailing Island last month, Fala aggravated an old neck injury and was immediately sent back to Hong Kong for treatment. A few days ago, Fala was seen returning to the hospital for a routine check-up.

Portraying a pirate in the film, it was reported that nearly 70 percent of Fala’s screen time in the movie were fight scenes. Fala started her martial arts training several months before principal photography for Mysterious Treasure began, but having to film in temperatures over 100 degrees Fahrenheit every day for ten hours straight took a toll on Fala’s health, and fatigue eventually caught up with her.

Last month, Fala injured her neck while shooting an action scene in Hailing Island, Yangjiang. According to an insider, Fala lost control of her whip and strained her neck. Suddenly feeling a pressing pain at the back of her neck and numbness in her limbs, Fala immediately canceled her shooting schedule and returned to Hong Kong for a medical checkup. After receiving an MRI test, her physician discovered that she had two slipped discs in her neck, which caused the numbness in her arms and legs. Fala stayed at the hospital overnight for additional treatment.

The following day, Fala was released from the hospital and attended a grand opening ceremony for a jewelry shop. She admitted that she had suffered a neck injury and was receiving physical therapy.

“She refused to get a stunt double,” a source close to the set of Mysterious Treasure said. “She had many difficult action scenes and the director even advised her to get a stunt double, but she said she could handle it. The production company did buy insurance, but she got herself really injured, and that’s still troubling.”

  3. How can a production company not buy insurance when they know they will be filming difficult action scenes? And Fala can’t be so stupid as to not check this detail first before taking on the stunts herself. I wonder how factual is the article. I feel bad for anyone who gets herself injured though. Hope Fala recovers well.
