Raymond Lam Strongly Supports Charmaine Sheh’s Performance in “My Sister of Eternal Flower”

Raymond Lam (林峯) and Kate Tsui (徐子珊) appeared at a promotion event yesterday. Raymond and Charmaine Sheh’s (佘詩曼) new TVB series, My Sister of Eternal Flower <花花世界花家姐> was accused of discriminating against mentally challenged people. Raymond pointed out that Charmaine’s character found a job in the series and was more intelligent than he was in the office. “I did not receive that particular complaint. Perhaps everyone’s perception was different!”

Viewers also complained that Charmaine replicated Roger Kwok’s (郭晉安) performance in Square Pegs <戆夫成龙>. Raymond strongly supported his partner,  “Whether it was the interpretation, body language, or tone of voice, Charmaine’s performance was very, very good. I told myself to deliver a better performance, so that we can balance out! ”

When reporters mentioned that Raymond’s ex-girlfriend, Mavis Pan (潘霜霜), may come to Hong Kong for promotional purposes, Raymond noted that he will not respond. Asked whether Raymond feared that Mavis may further provoke him, he was not willing to answer. Raymond stressed that he was currently focused on preparing for his upcoming concert.

Kate was spotted wearing the same woven bracelet that Ron Ng (吳卓羲) wore. Kate denied the rumors with Ron and noted that she got the bracelet from a master. The bracelet was intended to guard her health and many artists wore the same type of bracelet. Kate stressed that she would only date a man from outside the entertainment industry.  Asked whether she had feelings for Ron, Kate said, “The rumors have been circulating for too long; I have become numb!”

    Can anyone give examples of female actress/es that gave an excellent performance as a mentally disabled/challenged person either in movies or tv?

    Funn Lim: below 30 points throughout the series is consider a rating disaster. 30 and above, consider a success . . . and quality of the series doesnt matter either way.

    Ive seen celebrations 30 and above…. not 30 and below. Thats TVB making big stink about it.

    Funn Lim: “When is a series considered rating disaster? I see celebrations for 31 points, 41points, 21 points.. always celebration?”

    this seris.U guys are just haters no offence .I enjoy watching this seris and I know that there are people out there who like watching it as well if no one like it the rating would be zero .But I also know that this seris will get better.If u guys complain soo
    much then why don’t u try act like a mentally person .I don’t think u guys can do better then Charmaine.

      much then why don’t u try act like a mentally person” which is the usual replies to criticisms which is lame since we want our money’s worth and we want to enjoy a good performance with a good story but everytime we criticise we are called haters just because we have standards and we don’t compromise. “I don’t think u guys can do better then Charmaine” which is again lame since how do you know?
      “My mom teach me that when u don’t have something nice to say to someone don’t say it” which is true so why don’t the lovey-doveys practice that towards the so called haters? My mom well myself actually taught myself a bit of objectivity in criticisms would do the world some good, or at least would do the person expressing the opinion some good.

    While I’m ok with the story line so far… I honestly don’t feel any connection btwn Ray and Char.

      @Judy, Connection as in emotional connection between the two characters or chemistry between the two actors?

      I don’t sense an emotional connection between the two characters and that’s pretty much expected since the intellectual gap between Sister Fa and Chiang Yik are on two completely different levels. In terms of chemistry, this isn’t Raymond and Charmaine’s best collaboration either. Charmaine looks so much older than Raymond in here.

      Right now, I’m most interested in Toby and Pierre’s storyline. I wonder if he will develop into a villain or is he just ambitious on his own? Toby improved immensely in here; her emotional scenes where she yells at her brother, Jazz, is actually quite convincing.

      • Judy replied:

        I don’t see an emotional connection nor romantic chemistry between char & ray. I think emotional connection is possible (Jessica and Roger had pretty good emotional connection in square pegs), but it just didn’t happen in this story. Have you seen “I am Sam” starring Michelle Pfeiffer and Sean Penn? The emotional connection btwn all the character’s was phenomenal.. “Sam” had such great character depth even though he was mentally challenged. I think the way they wrote Char’s character (and Ray) is so one dimensional that it’s hard to see any kind of connection between the two characters.

        I definitely like pierre & toby’s story line better.. Pierre’s character is much more complicated than all the others. I have a feeling that there is a story behind Pierre’s family history and Raymond’s grandfather… I feel like he is gonna try to drive the business down the drain.

        I, on the other hand, am more interested in Charmaine and Raymond’s story followed by Jazz’s story. Some how, I find Toby and Pierre’s story boring even though I like both actors and I think they acted well, especially Pierre.

        @ Chriselle

        I’m really interested to know why Lily dated Jazz in the first place. She’s such a materialistic girl and she beautiful. She can go for ‘better guys’. But, why she stuck with Jazz for so long? I like to know how Jazz court her. I believe she truly love Jazz at one time.

        I like Gau Gau. But, I think her dad raise her wrongly. She’s more intelligent than Fah actually. If her father did not pamper her so much, but, instead try to let her work like Fah, she can be independent and look after herself when he’s not around.

      • Chriselle replied:

        @Kidd, So far there’s only been one scene of Lily if I remember correctly. I took a break from the series for two weeks and only recently did I went back to it. It’s when she brought her puppy up for Sister Fa to babysit while she went on a dinner with someone else.

        Maybe Lily does realize the realities of life and know that Jazz will like her for who she is and not only for her beauty, like most wealthy men are believed to be after. Maybe she realizes that Jazz will be by her side during her ups and downs and be there for her when he’s needed.

        When Jazz told Toby that, “You know, it’s really hard for me to find someone who I like and who likes me back…”

        My initial impression was that Lily was only using Jazz, but I think you made a good point. With her beauty, she didn’t have to be with Jazz, whose poor, short, and below average in terms of looks. While Jazz isn’t a superficial person, I think he can be tempted at times. I also wonder why he likes Lily. Because Lily is so pretty, I wonder if he was ever distracted by her physical appearance.

        Btw, I feel that the actress herself has a ton of make-up on. I see that in many of her series except Pages of Treasures, which she played a poor teenager girl. It’s mainly the foundation that makes it look overdone.

      • Chriselle replied:

        @Kidd, I also forgot to mention that maybe Lily doesn’t like how Jazz doesn’t have any determination or ambitions to achieve higher and that’s prolly why she’s a bit fed up with him.

        Login or Register before you can reply to Chriselle
      • Kidd replied:

        @ Chriselle

        This could also be true. In one scene, Jazz think back to the time they were together and there was a scene where they were happy together. Maybe Lily later realise she wants more than just a simple life.
