Fala Chen Takes on Fighter Role in “Cheung Po Tsai”

Fala Chen (陳法拉) has started work on her new movie, Cheung Po Tsai <張保仔>. With Dayo Wong (黃子華) starring as the well-known pirate in the Qing dynasty, Fala will portray a good martial arts fighter. 

Since leaving TVB last year, Fala Chen hoped to break away from her television image and diversify her career opportunities. She took acting courses in New York City last summer to open up new perspectives and starred in a short for horror film, Tales from the Dark II <奇幻夜>Although she was offered numerous scripts, Fala chose her next project carefully. After a positive collaboration with Gordon Chan (陳嘉上) in Tales from the Dark II, Fala agreed to star in the director/ producer’s Cheung Po Tsai.

Principal photography for Cheung Po Tsai has already began. Since Fala portrays a Cheung Chau native in the movie, she went to the island to scout the local surroundings in preparation for her role. “I’ve been in Hong Kong for nine years, but this is my first time in Cheung Chau. On the day I went, it was a holiday and there were large crowds, adding to the lively atmosphere.”

Although Cheung Chau offers tempting snacks, such as tennis-ball-sized fish balls, Fala is unafraid of gaining weight due to her active role in Cheung Po Tsai. Benefiting from her dance background, Fala should be able to handle the physical requirements of the role. “There are [martial arts] scenes in the movie. I will be going to Mainland China for training and filming later.”

Due to the risks involved in filming, Fala will increase her accidental injury insurance coverage, which has become more costly in recent years. Fala said, “I’m okay with minor scrapes, as long as there are no big injuries.”
