Currently seen in Shadow of Justice <伙記辦大事>, Joe Ma (馬德鐘) has started filming new drama Doppelganger <雙生陌生人>. The cast, including Alice Chan (陳煒), Angel Chiang (蔣家旻), Roxanne Tong (湯洛雯), Tsui Wing (徐榮), and Matthew Ho (何廣沛), attended the costume fitting yesterday.
The story revolves around a lawyer and unsuccessful hipster, who although are biologically unrelated, share the same exact physical appearance. After meeting each other, their paths continue to intertwine and they eventually swap identities.
The new project presents a new challenge to Joe as he will play two characters at once. Sometimes, after reading the script and then falling asleep, Joe would feel confused as to which role he is playing when he suddenly wakes up. During filming, he would occasionally check with his co-stars and ask which character he is playing at the moment.
In the drama, Alice plays Joe’s wife, who is an elegant lady who cares about her looks. As this is a big departure from her previous role in Guardian of the Dark Night <黯夜守護者>, where she is a police officer and dresses casually, Alice reveals that she had to prepare before filming, “I started doing facials, hair treatments, and my nails again.”
