With rehearsals underway for his new stage play with Power Chan (陳國邦), Shek Sau (石修) has been so busy with work that he even missed his own son Sam Chan’s (陳宇琛) wedding in England.
Although Shek Sau and Power having been TVB artistes for many years, this will mark their very first collaboration. They will be taking on substantial roles in the stage adaptation of traditional Chinese opera, Reincarnation of the Red Plum <再世紅梅記>. Known for their passion and diverse range of acting skills, Shek Sau and Power generated immense chemistry together during rehearsals. In addition to practicing their lines, Power shared that they have also been rehearsing their voices for singing and dancing. “It is very different from opera singing. In the stage version, we will focus on speaking words and on the lyrics.”
Shek Sau is so committed to this project that he could not find time to attend his son, Sam Chan’s wedding. The 68-year-old actor admitted, “Originally, I had plans to go, but I had rehearsal for this play and other work obligations. Work comes first. There is a lot of chemistry collaborating with Power, so I canceled my trip.” When asked whether his son was disappointed, Shek Sau replied, “No. As an artiste, our time is very unstable. I looked at pictures; I know he is very happy in England.”
