“Brother’s Keeper” Finale Breaks 35 Ratings Points
With the finale drawing a whopping 35.2 point viewership rating, Brother’s Keeper 2 <巨輪II> is now the record holder for most-watched TVB ending over the last two years.
Producer Amy Wong (王心慰), who initially did not plan for a third installment jokingly said she may have to reconsider matters.
Grace Chan Grateful for Rape Scene
Although Brother’s Keeper 2 started off with fairly average ratings, Grace Chan‘s (陳凱琳) rape scene with her step-father, played by Hugo Ng (吳岱融), became a hot topic among viewers. While the scene was highly controversial, Grace voiced her gratefulness in being given the opportunity to play the challenging role of Nana.
Grace expressed, “I’m very happy and very thankful! I hope everyone will give me a chance and see how much effort I put in. I hope everyone allows me to improve. The high ratings are not an outcome I achieved on my own – the storyline was very good from start to end! I gained a lot from filming this drama!”
In response to previous allegations that boyfriend Kevin Cheng (鄭嘉穎) was highly disapproving of her rape scene in Brother’s Keeper 2, Grace said, “Kevin was very understanding and he knews that it’s a good thing for actors to try different roles. He’s very supportive and when I have questions, he helps me.”
39 Episodes Worth of Pressure
Reprising his role in this second installment, male lead Edwin Siu (蕭正楠) finally let out a sigh of relief after the grand finale. While he was pleased with the ending, Edwin revealed that there were a lot of pressure filming the series.
Fortunately for Edwin’s fans, they can see him again in his new series, Two Steps from Heaven <幕後玩家>. When asked whether or not these two series will help him take home the Best Actor title, Edwin explained that he was never one to think about winning awards. However, the actor jokingly said the ratings were boosted due to viewers being homebound as a result of Typhoon Haima.
Kristal Tin (田蕊妮) was also very pleased with the turnout of the finale. The actress disclosed, “Although I’m playing the same character in the sequel, there were a lot of challenges. It doesn’t matter what the ratings were in the past, but I was very happy with this current performance of ‘Reckless Ying’. I’m very lucky to have played her again and it’s good enough for me that I was able to finish off the series with a happy ending.”
