Currently seen in War of Beauties (美麗戰場), Jeannie Chan (陳瀅) is on the radar to become one of TVB’s lead actresses. Modest in her new promotion as lead actress, Jeannie feels that she should be the last in ranking after Sisley Choi (蔡思貝), Katy Kung (龔嘉欣), Roxanne Tong (湯洛雯), and Samantha Ko (高海寧) due to her lack of experience.
While appearing on a talk show hosted by William Lam (林柏希), Jeannie opens up about being targeted by other actresses. As she got more opportunities, this also brought upon jealousy and scheming from other actresses. She recalls a specific event, “An actress went to talk to an upper-level manager and cried about not understanding why I am being given all these opportunities. She cried about how she has been with the company for very long and worked so hard. She also exclaimed that I am not that great and said that I am always late.”
Although Jeannie seems to have a smooth sailing career thus far, there have been times where she felt wronged. She recalled, “One time, I was filming with a male actor who was relatively new, so the director told him to really slap me. At the time, I was also quite new. He slapped me about 20 times. Towards the last few slaps, I couldn’t help it and started to cry, because it really hurt. The most unhappy part of the incident was that they ended up cutting my scene completely!”
Since starting her filming career with TVB, Jeannie has been linked to several male stars, including Alex Fong (方力申), Kalok Chow (周嘉洛), and Joey Law (羅天宇). When asked whom she would choose as a husband, boyfriend, and one night stand, Jeannie replied, “Can I choose someone else for one night stand? It would be Brian Chu (朱敏瀚)–he’s been training a lot and is really fit right now! As for boyfriend, I would choose Kalok, because he talks a lot, has a lot of interests, is playful, and is very active. I would choose Joey as my husband–he is very loyal and well-behaved.”
