Grace Chan, Mandy Wong Film “Captain of Destiny” in Hengdian
Grace Chan (陳凱琳) and Mandy Wong (黃智雯) flew to Hengdian today for on location filming of TVB drama, Captain of Destiny <張保仔>.
Grace Chan Travels with Mother
Grace was accompanied by her mother on the Hengdian trip. Since winning last year’s Miss Hong Kong pageant and quickly landing leading roles in TVB dramas, Grace spent little time with her parents. Grace took the filming opportunity to spend more quality time with her mother.
Grace laughed, “My mother said she can read a book and do her own things; she will not be bored as long as she can spend time with me. She really likes watching me film and wants to see how the production goes. My mother brought a pot so she can make soup.”
Mandy Wong Prepared to Face Cold Weather
Visiting Hengdian for the first time, Mandy brought a large suitcase full of warm clothing. Afraid of the cold temperatures, Mandy even brought a down jacket and plenty of blankets and sweaters. Jealous that good friends Bosco Wong (黃宗澤) and Niki Chow (周麗淇) both have their own places and toiletries in China, Mandy said she had to bring her own personal items, including bed sheets and pillows.
Tony Hung Takes the Lead
Landing the lead role in grand production Captain of Destiny, Tony Hung (洪永城) expressed his excitement despite the hectic filming schedule. Tony felt lucky that he is playing a pirate and not a prince. Praising Ruco Chan’s (陳展鵬) ability to memorize his difficult lines as a prince, Tony said, “I think being a pirate is more relaxed. Ruco’s lines are very long and difficult to memorize.”
Asked if he minds that promotional materials such as the 2015 TVB calendar focused more on Ruco’s role, Tony responded, “It doesn’t matter, as long as the poster is pretty!”
