Tavia Yeung Was Admitted to the Hospital

The cast of TVB’s new period drama, Property Protector <守業者>, are going through rough schedules. It was reported that the cast members of the Leung Choi Yuen (梁材遠) drama, such as Raymond Cho (曹永廉), and Katy Kung (龔嘉欣) have been suffering fatigue.

The stars were reported to have had no more than three hours of rest per day, and Katy Kung also admitted to have pulled an all-nighter for studio filming. Lead star Tavia Yeung (楊怡), who was scheduled to appear at the Shanghai TV Festival to promote The Hippocratic Crush 2 <On Call 36小時II> yesterday, backed out at the last minute, reportedly falling ill.

It turned out that Tavia’s situation was more serious than expected. Yesterday, Tavia’s sister and fellow actress, Griselda Yeung (楊卓娜), replied to a worried Tavia fan on Weibo, saying, “[Tavia] slept in the hospital for two days. She was released last night! Don’t worry!”

Tavia also reassured her fans that she is feeling well and resting. She wrote on her Weibo, “Thank you to all the fans, although I didn’t come [to the festival] today. I apologize. But I did see the beautiful flowers you all gave me. Thank you everyone for the hard work! Much appreciated.”

  1. I thought a couple of weeks ago TVB just promised to give enough breaks for their artistes. Guess all of that is just BS

    1. The did- but starting from 2014 next year… T_T in the meantime, they are still trying to kill their own artists’ in the process of making them work as slaves.

    1. she looks much older than her age in almost if not all of her recent pictures

    1. Yeah. TVB has that effect on their artists. I say she looks haggard… Poor Tavia

  2. Oh boy, tvb overworking their staffs again. Aren’t there labour laws in HK? and yes, she does look old and tired in the above picture.

  3. Sadly, until a TVB contracted actor or actresses dies they won’t change their ways.

    1. Actually, no…even when an artist dies, they still won’t change (look at what happened to Chan Hung Lit — though not sure if he was actually under management contract or not)….the only way they will change is if laws are enacted and enforced and they get taken to court….if it hits the pocketbook, then maybe, just maybe they will consider changing….

      1. New laws protecting the working conditions of actors and actresses will only work if there are people that have the courage to expose TVB.

      2. Who is Chan Hung Lit, Ilwy 12? What happened to him?

      3. Chan Hung Lit was the Taiwanese actor that acted for TVB. I think he got a heart attack while filming that one long series “Off Pedder” and passed away in the middle of filming.

      4. Mr Lee is right. That’s why Sheren Tang did the right thing. It’s a shame that some of her co stars ostracised her instead…

  4. Sheren Tang did every artist a favor already by speaking up about the bad ways of TVB, but nobody seems to be supporting her either. Which is all understandable since people need a job and the money. They can’t afford to offend the big bosses at TVB. However, you can’t expect change if the masses don’t speak out. Those that have to suffer the bad work hours choose to work in that environment….can’t feel too sorry for them.
    Tivia isn’t really ageing well at all. All these sleepless nights aren’t helping either. She already has gobs of makeup on too….can’t hide much more!

    1. Sheren has actually done the artistes a huge favour by speaking out. Because of her remarks, tvb issued a statement stating that a new policy will be undertaken next year which allows artistes at least 8 hours of rest after filming.

      1. Yes, but don’t forget that TVB adamantly denies that the changes had anything to do with Sheren (especially the 80% script thing). TVB publicly stated that they had already planned to make such changes “since the beginning of the year”…to further add insult to injury, at the same time that they made that announcement about the 8 hour rest time and 80% scripts, they also took away their artists’ freedom of speech by ‘warning’ them not to air their grievances to the Media but rather talk to TVB management behind closed doors….

        So yea, Sheren did all TVB artists a huge favor and even though everyone knows it, no one dares to say anything (and I didn’t see one single person thank her for it either!).

        So there you have the upside down world of the TVB-controlled HK television industry!

      2. There is a culture of fear in TVB, speak out and your career would be buried.

  5. The policy is 8 hours of “off time” not 8 hours of sleep. So if you factor in commute time between work and home and complete your “3S”, you really have about 4 hrs of quality rest. You don’t have time to meet with family, friends or time to go shopping for necessities unless u don’t sleep.

    1. They need more celebrities that can actually act =D

    2. They HAD the good acting celebrities a while back, but because of how poorly the company treats their staff over the past decade/recent years in terms of providing the basic needs of rest and a reasonable pay for the amount of effort/time/work they put in…not to mention 620s favouritism and the company’s illogical sense in promoting the wrong ppl, AND to top it all off-producing bad scripts, no doubt the good artists’ had/have considered leaving or have already left.

      Even with the amount of artists’ they have under their roof now, they could at least train them to become better at acting at least-recruiting more celebrities would most likely mean recruiting MORE newcomers.

      1. Even back in the days, TVB was known for their low pay and overworking of the cast and crew, so this is nothing new. I wonder if they will ever learn?? It just seems to be getting worse and worse. No wonder many who become famous leave TVB right away to dig gold in China. However, back in the days that was not an option since China hardly filmed or did any series. They only filmed a few of the classics like Dream of the Red Mansion, Journey to the West and Romance of the 3 Kingdoms.

  6. >scheduled to appear at the Shanghai TV Festival to promote The Hippocratic Crush 2 yesterday, backed out at the last minute, reportedly falling ill.

    The ironic thing is that real doctors put up with more stress/hours than actors, and Tavia can’t handle it.

  7. I had to suffer all nighters and all for graduate school so I know the pain that the TVB actors are going through. At least they still get paid, we as students did not get anything and still had to pay for this and that.

    1. I’d like to think that tvb artists’ endure a lot more pain than pulling all nighters for exams. This is their job, so they do suffer from a lack of sleep for not just a few nights, but continuously. And of course, getting paid for it seems better off than students, but they put their entire health aand energy forward and get paid peanuts =S

      Most times its not even a choice for them to choose whether or not they have to stay up all night working, because they just have to or else they’d affect the entire crew and colleagues. If their performance is poor, they are dragging down the rest of the production crew into the waters.

      1. In a sense, but when I was a grad student I had to do it continuously so it was not just one or 2 nights. But yea, they endure more pain than we do in the long run. I don’t think they would always get paid peanuts because as you can see, a number of them have quite a bit of money and live well so it’s not like they are living in poverty.

      2. I think those who made it work harder outside TVB series, with ads and appearances. So they definitely are not paupers. But can you imagine that you filmed tirelessly and still have to work on other jobs, it definitely will take a toll on their bodies. I think Tavia must know that there is a limit to her youth, and she is working too hard to build her retirement nest?
