Ruco Chan and “Hidden Door” Cast Do COVID-19 Testing Every Day

Hong Kong is experiencing its highest infection rates since the outbreak of COVID-19, with the daily number of cases peaking at 614 yesterday. Safety concerns have been heightened at TVB, after two staff members and one production crew member tested positive. Since TVB artistes have to film without any masks, the cast of Hidden Door<隱門> have taken extra precautions by doing COVID-19 testing every day.

Producer Amy Chan (王心慰) said contingency measures are already put in taken, “We have cancelled scenes which would have taken place at risky locations. We’re adjusting our filming notices to film only in safe locations. A lot of our outdoor filming locations have been cancelled.”

As male lead Ruco Chan (陳展鵬) has a young daughter at home, he has been extra cautious and went to the hospital for COVID-19 testing. “It’s inevitable to be worried. I get tested every day for peace of mind. Since actors can’t wear masks during filming, we really have to be more careful. When we are outside filming and a pedestrian asks for a photo together, I make sure to put on my mask first. I hope everyone maintains a safe distance, and those waiting for their scenes should keep their masks on.”

Echoing the same sentiment, Mandy Wong (黃智雯) and Roxanne Tong (湯洛雯) said they have also been getting tested every day as well.

In Hidden Door, Roxanne has many scenes with Ruco as they portray characters at odds who later fall in love. Ruco joked that he had underestimated Roxanne’s strength, “We have many action scenes, so I decided to [test] her strength, and was shocked to learn how powerful she is.” Roxanne revealed that Ruco initially thought she was very feminine, but she was able to complete the action scene in one shot.

Earlier rumors claimed that Roxanne’s boyfriend Kenneth Ma (馬國明) moved in with her, but she clarified that she is still living with her family. Since she is filming two dramas, she found a temporary place closer to work in Tseung Kwan O so that she could rest. Reporters shared that Kenneth’s ex-girlfriend Jacqueline Wong (黃心穎) also lives in that complex, but Roxanne said she would not feel awkward if they bumped into each other.
