Starring Samantha Ko (高海寧) and Owen Cheung (張振朗), new TVB drama Falling in Love with You in Childhood <童時愛上你> was only announced in February, but progress came to a sudden halt. As the problem script will see some significant changes, filming will be delayed until June.
It is said that this is because of Eric Tsang’s (曾志偉) arrival at TVB, the changes he implemented may have also affected the drama department. The script was reviewed by TVB management and they had requested a complete overhaul.
Producer Liu Chun Shek (廖晉碩) admitted that filming has indeed been delayed. “There are many reasons. One is that the script can be improved. Two is because of the pandemic. We cannot film at some of the locations until the gathering restrictions have been lifted.”
Despite the script revisions, there will not be changes to Samantha’s character, a rich businesswoman who suffers from an unfortunate accident that leaves her with the cognitive ability of an 8-year-old. “Portraying a character who has the intelligence of an 8-year-old is very challenging, which is why I requested cast table reads. This way, we are able to give suggestions or point out any problems. I know that Samantha is under a lot of pressure, but that is how acting skills are improved. I am confident in her abilities,” the producer commented.
