Elaine Ng (吳綺莉) played a mother who lost her son in ViuTV drama (理想國) and was present at the promotion activity with Danny Chan (陳炳銓), Kate Yeung (楊淇) and Ng Siu Hin (吳肇軒) on 28th July 2019. Elaine expressed it was challenging and the filming was smooth because of the assistance from the crew team and young actor.
When mentioned about the conflicts with her daughter, Etta Ng (吳卓林) during the shooting, Elaine replied she drew a separate line between work and personal affair and everyone suffered from stress, since Hong Kong was a small country. She was currently learning to handle it: “I do feel unhappy upon returning home because of the work at times and my family might not accept it. Everyone has his/her own experiences and Etta and I argue with each other before. She does it to the maid and me and I finally understand it is better to become a smooth talker. It is a pity that I am currently single and cannot try it on anybody.”
Elaine added that Etta and she remained friends and their relationship showed an improvement. Both did not keep in contact everyday and Etta’s health and positive mindset was the most important.
