Chilam Cheung and Charmaine Sheh Nostalgic Over Filming of “Return of the Cuckoo”

Chilam Cheung (張智霖) and Charmaine Sheh (佘詩曼) promoted their new movie, Return of the Cuckoo <十月初五的月光>, in Macau today. The lead stars were greeted by an enthusiastic crowd of fans.

Fourteen years ago, Chilam and Charmaine were a memorable pairing in TVB drama, Return of the Cuckoo. In November, director Patrick Kong (葉念琛) announced filming a movie version to continue the story where the drama left off. The cast and crew has been filming in Macau.

Touring Macau on a double decker bus to reminisce their filming experience, Chilam and Charmaine were surrounded by their loving fans as soon as they stepped off the bus. Despite the hundreds of people that huddled around them, the stars warmly greeted everyone and shook hands with them. The cast also handed out holiday presents to pedestrians.

Feeling nostalgic, Chilam said, “It feels like it was just yesterday. It feels like I just started filming.”

With her pixie cut and plain jeans, Charmaine looked exactly like her character from the classic TVB drama. Not having aged one bit since then, Charmaine expressed, “I feel like everyone here hasn’t changed at all! My mom – Nancy Sit (薛家燕), my dad – Kwok Fung (郭峰) too.”

Another Baby For Chilam Cheung?

Chilam and wife Anita Yuen (袁詠議) put a lot of effort in raising their son, Morton Cheung. Now that Morton is eight years old, it is rumored that the couple plans to have another baby. Chilam said he would let things fall into place naturally. “To have a second one would be great, but I’ll be happy even if there’s only one [child]. I’m easily fulfilled.”

    I hope this movie is the last one by pretty Charmaine and Chilam. Too many unfair remarks by Media on Charmaine each they filmn together! Prefer to see Charmaine with sexy singles in drama/movie to match her style and looks. The latest fab is Charmaine and Louis K hot passionate kisses in TITS movie…Yeah! Watch the video cliphttp://tieba.baidu.com/p/3474222878

    Would love to see the movie version, given that Chilam and Charmaine have mature in their acting thru the years!

    Charmaine looked very young in the above photo. Definitely she has aged quite a bit after “Return of the Cuckoo” in 2000, ie. 14 years ago. She was only 25 years old. However, she still looked young in the photo…… hopefully in the movie too.

    Don’t understand why this movie is filmed 14 years after the drama series was aired.

      It is impossible to look the same after 14 years. However, Charmaine looks good and young in the above photo. Chilam has also aged quite a bit after 14 years.

        Everyone ages since none of us are immortal and can be forever young. But the most important thing is to be able to age well.

        Chilam only ages a little bit, but Charmaine ages more than him.

    Yeah. Charmaine looks so young, sweet and cute in the above photo. I hope Charmaine will film a drama with Kevin Cheng instead of with Chilam. Charmaine and Kevin look great a couple 🙂

    I can’t wait to see this! I wished it was a drama or for them to do another drama together but the amount of attention they get can be cumbersome for them. I love them as an onscreen couple so here’s hoping there’s more in store later!

    ageing is inevitable…what is important is to age gracefully.

    Charmaine looks good in any hair style, because her face is sharp…but the present one is very nice.

    I wonder if Chilam uses botox or what is his secret for being youthful because he looks very young for his age.

      Looks very young for his age? How do people his age usually look like?

      I think botox-free on his face. His facial expressions are fine.

    I felt that there is a distance between them now, maybe due to the pressure given by the media?
