Adia Chan Shares More Details About New TVB Drama “The Ghetto-Fabulous Lady”
The cast of TVB detective comedy drama The Ghetto-Fabulous Lady <褔爾摩師奶> held a large-scale promotional event on Sunday to talk about the upcoming show, which premieres in Hong Kong on Monday, February 25. The period drama stars Adia Chan (陳松伶), her first television drama since 2017’s The No-No Girl <全職沒女>, with Ben Wong (黃智賢), Alice Chan (陳煒), Tsui Wing (徐榮), Kaman Kong (江嘉敏), Jeannie Chan (陳瀅), and Dickson Yu (余德丞).
Set in early 1920’s Colonial Hong Kong, The Ghetto-Fabulous Lady follows Judy Fletcher (Adia Chan), wife of the wealthy Sir Philip Fletcher (Brian Thomas Burrell), a Hong Kong government official. Born into a poor family, Judy’s goal in life has always been to marry rich and obtain wealth. She mingles with socializes to escape property, but once she achieves that goal, a series of events leads her to fall right back into the bottom. After her husband’s mysterious disappearance, Judy learns to cope with her new identity and transforms into a female Sherlock Holmes, solving mysterious around the city. Ben Wong plays Kwan Yat-fu, Judy’s trusted butler who acts as her bodyguard and protector.
On the hardships of filming The Ghetto-Fabulous Lady, Adia said, “There are hardships to any job, but the worst has to be when you don’t have a bathroom around the area.
Jeannie Chan plays an artist who has other hidden abilities. “I don’t want to share too much because that’ll give away too much of the plot,” said Jeannie. “She seems like a simple girl on the surface, but she has actually been through a lot. She is jaded from it all. It wasn’t easy playing her, because I had to keep with this negative energy all the time. It was pretty challenging for me.”
Jeannie said the role made her afraid to meet up with friends, as she didn’t want her negativity to affect her friends. She didn’t meet up with any friends for two whole months. After filming ended, she immediately de-stressed by eating out. “I eat everything. It’s the one thing that makes me very satisfied. I’m very easy to please!”
