Maggie Shiu Reminisces Filming “Blood of Good and Evil”
Recently, classic TVB drama Blood of Good and Evil <我本善良> is being aired again on television in the midnight time slot in Hong Kong. The series, which originally aired in 1990, brought back many nostalgic memories to viewers. Maggie Shiu‘s (邵美琪) unforgettable pairing and on-screen chemistry with Deric Wan (溫兆倫) also led to a long-standing friendship between the two.
Maggie admitted to tuning in each night to watch the re-broadcast. “It’s delightful to watch the series again. It has already been 28 years ago! It made me think back about all the memories from when we filmed outdoor scenes in London. Like the silly times when Deric used to play pranks on the dogs! When I watch it and recall these memories, I would be inspired to reach out and message him. My fans have also recently visited all the places that we used for backdrops in London. Those places seem to have become attractions!”
In addition, Maggie’s recent drama My Ages Apart <誇世代> was also a success and beat out several high-budget TVB anniversary dramas to win the Best Drama award. However, Maggie was notably absent when the entire cast and crew went on stage to accept the award. Maggie recently made a public appearance while attending the celebration banquet for the drama. Due to other work obligations, she was not in Hong Kong on the night of the awards ceremony and expressed regret for not being on stage to receive the award with her cast mates. “I’m happy that the series got an award and also happy for everyone! I feel pity though because I was not physically there at the time. I have never received an award before, so this would have been my opportunity to go on stage! Next year, regardless of who wins, I’ll barge out there to celebrate!”
