While filming costume drama The Legend of Xiao Chuo <燕雲台>, Tiffany Tang (唐嫣) received royalty treatment on set after announcing her pregnancy in September.
Tiffany hired an entourage of 50 people to accompany her on the filming set, including makeup assistants, driver, personal assistants, and someone to constantly monitor the air quality index to make sure that the air around her is not polluted. Her 50-people entourage reportedly stayed with Tiffany in a five-star hotel for convenience to respond to her requests, while the rest of the production crew lived in a one-star hotel.
The production crew on set also took special care of the 36-year-old actress and made sure to thoroughly clean the set before and after filming to ensure a dust-free working environment. Because Tiffany also had a lot of horse-riding scenes, special upper body shots were filmed where the actress simply imitated the act of horse riding while using props. Because Tiffany’s belly bump continued to grow during her pregnancy, her costume had to be constantly altered to fit her new size.
On the other hand, Charmaine Sheh (佘詩曼), who also stars in the series, is treated a lot more modestly on set. While filming a horse-riding scene, Charmaine accidentally fell off the horse and immediately got back on to continue filming. Luckily, no major injuries were sustained.
