Francis Ng and Chilam Cheung Clear Recent Negative Reports
Francis Ng (吳鎮宇), Chilam Cheung (張智霖), Ron Ng (吳卓羲), Fala Chen (陳法拉), Him Law (羅仲謙), Nancy Wu (胡定欣), and other cast members of Triumph in the Skies 2 <衝上雲霄II> appeared at a promotion event in Kowloon City today. With viewership ratings consistently hitting above 30 points, Francis and Chilam’s acting were highly praised by viewers. Both actors denied recent negative reports about their family.
Tabloids claimed that Francis is a strict and authoritative father who believes he needs to be harsh to his son in order for him to learn and gain independence. Francis was quick to deny these reports. He further stated he is not planning to send his son abroad to Singapore for education, and would have him study in Hong Kong. Francis wants his son to face the local competition and learn more Chinese.
Chilam also clarified that he did not state that his relationship with Anita Yuen (袁詠儀) had suffered a rocky bump, contrary to what earlier tabloids claimed. They have been together for two decades and their relationship is very stable.
A Disastrous Ending
When Francis accepted an interview earlier in mainland China, he told the media spoilers about the finale of Triumph in the Skies 2. According to him, everyone in the drama would die via a plane accident. At the time, he said, “We were all on our way to the Maldives for a vacation, but the airplane blew up. There was a ‘pang’, and we all [died] in the tragedy…. Because of the sad ending, there were three minutes of silence.” Francis had also revealed there definitely would not be a third installment since the story is unable to be continued.
Hearing Francis’ words, many fans were upset and questioned whether TVB would dare film such an ending. It turned out Francis had made everything up as a joke. He laughed and expressed, “I lack a sense of humor. How can there be so many spoilers anyway? I just made up the most impossible ending. Can’t believe people actually trust me!”
In terms of how Ron was constantly scolded by Francis during filming, Ron helped clear things up. “[Francis] was only joking. The drama is so inspirational. Myolie and I will have a great ending,” he revealed.
Fala Chen to Quit Studies in New York?
Absent at several previous promotional events, Fala finally appeared today to meet up with the cast. She told the press she does not know whether she should return to New York to continue acting since many opportunities are awaiting her. “My teacher emailed to ask me, because they want me to continue my studies. But after I returned to Hong Kong, I received several film scripts in both Mandarin and English. It’s making me very indecisive!”
Fala expressed she is very happy at the moment to be free from management contracts, and currently does not plan to change the situation. She brought a bottle of red wine from the United States and decided to share it with Francis and Chilam during a dinner together.
At the event, Fala also reenacted her cake-baking scene from the drama. Chilam joked and asked, “What are the measurements of Jeannette Leung (梁政鈺)?” The busy Fala accidentally slipped out, “38 grams.” Chilam laughed and expressed, “Wow, that’s so heavy!”
