Rookie actress Grace Chan (陳凱琳) starred in three dramas back-to-back since winning Miss Hong Kong 2013. Last year, the 23-year-old made her acting debut as Wayne Lai’s (黎耀祥) younger sister in the TVB anniversary drama Overachievers <名門暗戰>, earning positive responses for her performance. As one of TVB’s top promoted newcomers, Grace said she must learn how to fight for the chance to rest.

“I’ve come to realize how important sleeping actually is,” said Grace.

Her second drama, Quid Pro Quo <四個女仔三個Bar>, is set to premiere on January 26. Asked if she felt any pressure acting as the female lead, Grace insisted that she was not the only lead, explaining that all the ladies in the series have equal screen time.

Currently filming time-traveling drama Captain of Destiny <張保仔>, Grace revealed that there is still one more month of filming left. Afterwards, she will have to prepare for her new series, The Vampire <殭>. Filming in Hengdian for the first time for Captain of Destiny, Grace said it was so cold she used six heat packs in a day. Asked if she had any time to rest, she said, “I rested well when I was in Hengdian because I didn’t have to work every day.”

Moon Lau in Debut Drama

Miss Hong Kong 2013 second runner-up, Moon Lau (劉佩玥), also stars in Quid Pro Quo. She is very nervous about the drama, as it is her debut series. She is thankful to have seniors such as Ram Chiang (蔣志光) to guide her during filming, which has calmed her nerves significantly.

“Although it’s my first time filming a drama, I tried my best. I am very open to criticism as it is a very important part of the learning process. I give myself 70 percent,” said Moon when asked to grade her performance.

Also confirmed to star in The Vampire, Moon will cut off her long hair for her role. Portraying a mature and cool assistant, Moon said her role is completely different from her real-life self.

    I’m quite sick of Grace, I’m more excited about how Moon Lau will perform, she has the least noise out of the three MHK. I’m very curious to see how she will perform. I’m rooting for her! She has a sweet image and personality.

      They overwork everyone and I think if Grace cannot handle it in the long term then her show biz career will be very short lived.

        It is not just TVB artists. I heard that in spite of the adequate hours of rest that many claim that mainland artists get, I know heard mainand actor Yu Bo did not sleep for a whole week. There are many other artists who do not sleep for days. Even Christine Ng said that she did not eat any solid food for days. Life in the circle is really tough and it seems that Grace may not be able to handle it.

    Given that she is still kind of a newbie, and there is a general buzz/demand for her, I guess this is her ‘bok sat see garn’ to make a name for herself early days to carry into the future if she really wants this career and to stay in the industry for the long haul.
    Also, I thought she did a great job in Overachievers, I didn’t really get why some people said “she only did well because she was playing a character similar to her real life self”, cause there must’ve been pressure to act naturally on camera in front of people and interact with more experienced TVB artists, even if she was just “playing her real life self”.

    Omg, not her again. She’s more overpublicized than overworked. This photo certainly presents a striking resemblance between her & the wicked witch of the west.
