Louisa So and Wayne Lai Satisfied with “Rear Mirror’s” Results
After a 15-gap, Wayne Lai (黎耀祥) and Louisa So (蘇玉華) collaborated together in TVB series Rear Mirror <載得有情人>. Despite the long time gap since their last collaboration, the pair enjoyed working with each other and still had great on screen chemistry. Playing a romantic couple, Wayne and Louisa jokingly added that they should request to have a kiss scene in the rain next time to make up for the lack of intimate scenes in Rear Mirror.
In the drama, Wayne plays a divorced father who meets strong career-driven woman, Louisa, and works as her chauffeur. A romantic story of an older couple, without the passion and sizzle seen in younger relationships, may not be appealing to all audience demographics. However, Wayne and Louisa are very satisfied with the results. Their detailed performances received praise, proving that good acting and a production with heart will inevitably catch viewers’ attention.
Wayne said, “I think this drama can be regarded as tasteful. The best productions should be able to achieve this. There is no need for it to be too deep; the audience can absorb what they can see.”
Louisa commented, “I think Hong Kong productions have underestimated the viewers – they’re smarter than we think and they know how to watch series. I think this time, viewers must have thought that the story was refreshing. When we create productions, we think of how to excite and create freshness for viewers. If we don’t follow those steps, we shouldn’t be creators or artistes.”
Similar to her role in Rear Mirror, Louisa is a woman who focuses the majority of her time on work – she has been dating her long-term boyfriend, theater actor Poon Chan Leung (潘燦良), for 18 years and has yet to tie the knot. Louisa felt comfortable with their dating status for many years, but she that she finally her boyfriend’s proposal this year. Louisa joked that she will affirm her marriage announcement when if Rear Mirror‘s ratings reach 40 points.
