“Destined to Love You” Cast Shares Filming Experience
Currently filming in Hengdian, the cast of Destined To Love You <偏偏喜歡你> met with the press to discuss share their filming experiences. Joe Chen (陳喬恩) discussed the romantic scenes she has with Jia Nailiang (賈乃亮) and Bosco Wong (黃宗澤),
The cast appeared impeccable in their costumes. Despite the frigid temperatures in Hengdian, the actors had a number of action scenes in the lake and suffered in the cold water for hours before being able to change out of their soaking uniforms. Even when their lips turned purple from the cold, the male cast did not let out a word of complaint.
Nailiang also admitted to having lost significant weight from intense weight training in order to portray this role. He also had to endure real slaps from Joe in a scene where they accidentally kissed. Although Nailiang cried out in pain afterward, Joe did not hold back on her teasing comments, “You didn’t have a lot of color on your face that day; I was helping you!” Although Nailiang had a reddened face for the rest of the day, he complimented Joe for being a great onscreen partner.
Pointing out that many of Joe’s onscreen male partners received a popularity boost after working with her, Nailiang admitted to reducing his pay to film Destined To Love You. Cherishing the opportunity to work with Joe for the first time, Nailiang commented, “Joe gives her co-stars a lot of chances to incorporate their own ideas into filming. A lot of the little ideas in my performance were actually suggested by Joe.”
Known for her warm personality, Joe got along well with both Nailiang and Bosco. There was no awkwardness in the romantic scenes.
