Eddie Cheung Complains about TVB’s Poor Working Conditions
Filming for TVB action drama Sniper Attack 2013 <神槍狙擊2013> is coming to an end soon. On Saturday, Eddie Cheung (張兆輝) and Kate Tsui (徐子珊) filmed a series of car chasing scenes by the Tai Po Industrial Estate. Chasing after a criminal with Kate’s black sports car, Kate had to suddenly stop the vehicle when a cargo truck slams in front of her way.
The actors filmed the scene without a stunt double. Asked why Eddie, who was sitting in the passenger’s seat, decided not to get help from a stunt double, Eddie laughed and said that he trusts Kate’s driving skills. Eddie compared Kate to an “action choreographer” and joked, “There is nothing to be afraid of. If anything, we’ll just crash.”
Known as the “Racing Queen” among her colleagues, Kate expressed that although she had experiences in car racing, she admitted that she was quite terrified during the shoot. “Someone (Eddie) was next to me! I got scared.” She added that the scene also attracted a lot of onlookers, and she was afraid she would crash into some pedestrians.
Eddie Cheung Running on 30 Hours Without Sleep
Although Eddie has already fully recovered from his ear injury, he revealed that his health is still not in the best of shape. “I think I’ve caught a cold. I haven’t been feeling 100 percent. Because production is coming to an end soon, my rundown sheet is packed. I started filming location scenes today at 6 in the morning. It will be nonstop filming until 7 at night, when I continue to film some studio scenes. That will keep going until 9AM the next morning, when I will go do some location shoots again. That will last all the way until night too. It is thirty hours in a row. Filming movies are not as laborious.”
Eddie then added in afterthought, hinting at TVB’s carelessness and poor treatment, “They don’t care about [us]. It is all about getting the mission done. How will anything good come out of it?
Sniper Attack 2013, produced by Kwan Wing Chung (關永忠), also stars Kathy Chow (周海媚), Michael Tse (謝天華), Alice Chan (陳煒), and Eliza Sam (岑麗香).
