Joey Thye and Kelly Ng Lose Weight for New Drama

Joey Thye (戴祖儀) and Kelly Ng (伍樂怡) are collaborating for the first time in a new TVB drama. Though the two have starred in variety shows and Joey had appeared in last year’s Wonder Women (多功能老婆), their acting experiences are still limited.

The director arranged a special training to help Joey and Kelly prepare for their upcoming roles. Although unable to disclose the drama’s details, the two actresses did share that they will be playing students.

Due to the coronavirus situation and spending more time at home, Joey and Kelly gained weight earlier.  Since gyms have temporarily closed and she personally likes to snack at home, Joey had gained as much as ten pounds. She started working out at home recently and has successfully lost six pounds in the last two weeks.

Participating in Miss Hong Kong 2017 and one of the top five finalists in the pageant, Kelly has hosted travel program Fun Abroad (3日2夜) and had minor roles in dramas over the last three years. The 27-year-old actress doesn’t think acting as a student will be too difficult in the upcoming drama, but sees the challenge in bringing out her character’s personality distinctly on screen.
