Linda Chung Stands Firm; Appearance Fees Will Not Be Pushed Down
Yesterday, Linda Chung (鍾嘉欣), Nancy Sit (薛家燕) and the rest of the cast attended a promotional event for TVB’s new drama, River of Wine <九江十二坊>. When asked about a magazine report stating a list of the 2008 appearance fees of TVB artists and about being one of the top twenty earners of that list, Linda smiled and said, “I’m happy! A big thank you to the company for giving me opportunities. Even if I was busy filming drama series, they would arrange some time for me to shoot an advertisement or for some appearances.” (Reporter: Is there a difference in price of your appearance fees between 2008 and now?) “They were very stable. There is just a little increase however no one can push my asking price down because my manager is very firm with regards to this.”
Besides this, male leads Bowie Lam (林保怡) and Sunny Chan (陳錦鴻) were both busy filming in the Mainland and thus could not attend the promotional event. Being one of the main leading ladies, Nancy Sit was supposed to bring her team to Shenzhen for a performance but finally persisted on showing up, “My personal academic center has been organizing social etiquette lessons, teaching kids to turn ‘young chicks’ into becoming more disciplined, polite and courteous. I will bring them to perform at a later time but for promotions, no matter what, I will definitely rush back to do it.”
