TVB’s new drama Shameless Youth <青春不要臉> began filming this week in Tsim Sha Tsui. The cast features Dickson Yu (余德丞), Tiffany Lau (劉穎鏇), Karl Ting (丁子朗), Joey Thye (戴祖儀) and Nicole Wan (尹詩沛). Set in the 1980s, Shameless Youth will bring back a lot of nostalgia for viewers, including the pop culture and iconic fashions from that decade.
In a recent scene, Dickson, Tiffany, and Nicole were filming in a restaurant, where Tiffany asks Nicole to nominate her for the Miss Hong pageant. As Tiffany and Dickson will be playing a bickering pair who ends up becoming a couple, they were asked if there are any kissing scenes. Tiffany laughed and responded, “I won’t share this information yet.” Nicole teased that she has some “physical” scenes with Dickson, who explained, “We’re not fighting each other. It is more of her hitting me.”
Dickson is delighted that Shameless Youth is set in the 1980s, which allows him to learn more about that era. Since he and Tiffany have to learn how to ice skate, this made his bottom hurt after falling many times. Tiffany said, “It’s really hard. I have to pretend that I am an expert at it. I fall a lot even though I have been practicing.”
Though the physically-exerting role equates to shooting three dramas, Dickson feels confident that he can handle it. Many have been concerned about Dickson’s state of health after he had sudden cardiac arrest in 2018. He has lightened his workload ever since recovering from his near-death experience. However, many still fear that the young actor was still suffering from some underlying illness when he appeared tired and pale while hosting a soccer show. Looking refreshed on the filming set of Shameless Youth, Dickson shared that he is in good health is well. He said, “After two years, I am just so excited to be filming dramas again.”
