Promoted with endless opportunities since winning the Miss Hong Kong 2018 crown, Hera Chan (陳曉華) is currently filming Supernatural Sense <異空感應> with Carlos Chan (陳家樂). TVB is known for grueling hours, and lead stars often only sleep two hours every day during a project. Filming indoor studio and outdoor scenes nonstop, Hera’s health is crashing due to the lack of sleep.
“It was really bad a few days ago, and I thought I would fall ill. However, filming a running scene gave me a shot of energy. Exercise is really important. A lot of times we’re just sitting around waiting to film, so moving helps freshen you up,” the 27-year-old actress admits.
The new drama’s filming schedule is quite grueling and she feels that she has become quite hardy. Although the weather is getting colder, Hera has been sleeping in her car overnight. “Sometimes there is only one hour of break, so there is no point in going home. I bought a mattress, so that I can sleep for a bit in the car. Sometimes I’ll take a nap in the car during my lunch break as well.”
Although she is quite tired, she still believes that she is a safe driver because she will become very alert when she has to drive. She will likely have more time to rest after all the outdoor scenes are finished filming.
Nominated for Best Actress and Most Improved Female Actress at this year’s TVB Anniversary Awards, Hera continues to strive for improvement. For her new role, Hera admits “the most challenging aspect is lacking sleep, so I constantly have to remind myself to get back into filming mode. I also told the crew to tell me if there are any problems so I can improve.”
