It is not easy to be TVB artiste and all must withstand the long shooting hours including overnight, regardless of the popularity. Lately, Raymond Wong (黃浩然), Selena Lee (李施嬅), Alice Chan (陳煒) and Shaun Tam (譚俊彥) are busy filming the new drama, Forensic Heroes IV (法證先鋒IV) directed by Mui Siu Ching (梅小青) and Alice established a new record of shooting for 46 consecutive hours on 1st February 2019.
Remember that Alice mentioned that she would work continuously without sleeping during a previous interview with HK01 (香港01) and used Deep in the Realm of Conscience (宮心計2深宮計) series as an example: “My working pattern remains the same since joining the industry. I will not take forty winks during the break as it makes me confused and loses concentration upon waking up. (What is the longest shooting hours?) I tried it more than 10 times and shoot for 3 consecutive days in this drama. I did not wash my hair and remove the head accessories in order to sleep for 3 hours. It is the worst experience.”
This time, Alice created a breaking record of shooting for 46 hours consecutively and continued the filming marathon. She had completed more than 30 scenes and the shooting took place at her “home” according to the series: “Honestly speaking, some scenes involve Akina Hong (康華) and Timothy Tse (鄭子誠) and I do not need to appear in all scenes. Thus, I can rest and read the script but not sleeping during those free time.”
