Having just wrapped up The Queen of News <新聞女王>, Matthew Ho (何廣沛) shared that he misses the cast, especially working with Charmaine Sheh (佘詩曼), who went above and beyond to take care of everyone on set.
“I didn’t expect her to take such good care of her juniors. I’m starting to miss her! It’s not just me–all of the other cast said the same thing. The moment we finished filming, she left right away to work in China. I really admire her,” Matthew said. He is also inspired by her work ethic, “I never saw her check her script–she memorized it before we started filming. This is something that we can all learn from her.”
Entering post production, The Queen of News is expected to air at the end of the year. Matthew believes that the audience will like the drama as the story is very compelling. “I’ve fallen asleep while reading other scripts before, but this time I didn’t!” He also hopes that they can film a sequel, “The producer said there is a chance, but it would need a good script first.”
After Matthew sang his praises for Charmaine, reporters teased him to pursue her romantically. Matthew joked that many men also have the same idea, but Charmaine needs to be open to it. “I’m already very happy with our onscreen romance. She is very different from the authoritative character that she portrays. Everyone will fall in love with her–I don’t think it is possible for people to dislike her. I didn’t expect her to be such a nice person–she talks to every single person during filming breaks. She is very genuine and treats every colleague like that.”
Matthew’s next upcoming project will be filming for Extraordinary Prosecutor <非常檢控觀>, where he guest stars as Hera Chan’s (陳曉華) in one of the legal cases. The main cast will consist of Joe Ma (馬德鐘), Ricco Ng (吳偉豪), Winky Lai (賴慰玲), and Alice Chan (陳煒).
