The onscreen couple shares their filming stories in “Paranormal Shop”.
Playing a couple in upcoming drama Paranormal Shop <異搜店>, former Miss Hong Kong Hera Chan (陳曉華) and actor James Ng (吳業坤) share their filming experience. Though working together for the first time, they established an easy bond due to James’ sense of humor.
Though he looked forward to his kissing scene with Hera in the drama, this turned out to be a big disappointment. James complained, “I haven’t done the scene even after waiting for two months. I’m afraid the scenes weren’t needed anymore. They said Hera was supposed to initiate the kiss, but I think the producer said the scene would be cancelled. I was a little dismayed, and will add scenes in other parts.”
When Hera asked if he had gotten her approval for what he wants to add, James replied, “I discussed it with you, it’s only to add some hand-holding scenes so we’ll seem more like a couple.”
Finishing Hera’s Leftover Food
Asked if James had used his courting tricks on her, Hera shared, “He is always saying I’m fat until I actually become worried about becoming fat. Since I don’t get enough sleep, he would tempt me to join him for supper and ice cream. But he’s really a good man and always treats everyone to food–it turns out that this hearsay about him is true!”
Since she is full of praise towards James and is currently, is Hera fond of James’ type? Immediately turning down the suggestion, Hera said she does not know him enough, but added that she likes men who have an interest in music, play sports, and go mountain hiking. Hearing this, James quickly declared himself a good fit as he sings, takes karate, and goes mountain driving, but Hera refused to let him have his way. “It’s mountain hiking, not driving,” rebutted Hera.
Continuing his banter, James showered praise on Hera for completing her scenes without outtakes, whereas he had to re-shoot his scenes three to four times. Growing to know each other very well over the past three months of filming, James does not mind eating Hera’s leftover lunch. James explained that Hera only ate only one or two mouthfuls of her food, so he finished it for her. Though he posted about the incident on social media, he asked Hera not to mind as he was just sharing the anecdote for comedic effect. “Environmentalist, do you like it?” he cheekily added. Avoiding a direct response, Hera only said, “I’m an environmentalist.”
