The fifth wave of the pandemic is currently wide spreading in Hong Kong and TVB is considered a danger zone. Law Lok Lam (羅樂林), Chow Ka Lok (周嘉洛) and other crew staff went for quick test and were tested positive and TVB has halted all shooting for the dramas. It is estimated to suspend for 5 days and the filming could continue on 1st March, after the affected places are disinfected. However according to the news source on 28th February, TVB was pointed to resume the shooting on 7th March instead.
As Wayne Lai (黎耀祥) participates in TVB new drama, Qinggong (輕‧功), he accepted an interview from Ming Pao (明報) and said the location shooting was supposed to resume on 27th February: “This morning, I received a notification that the filming is delayed for a week and it depends on the situation. It is very serious and there is a high risk whenever we shoot. Yes, there is a slight delay but it is a good arrangement. I usually stay at home and cook.”
As for Kenneth Ma (馬國明) and Rosina Lam (林夏薇), they are filming Legal Spokesperson (法言人) series. Kenneth revealed he was supposed to work on 1st March but it was cancelled until further notice. Rosina disclosed she was waiting for the company’s arrangement and hoped everyone stayed healthy.
Next, Roger Kwok (郭晉安) is supposed to film new drama (曙光) and (回歸) and has yet to receive the notification. He said: “The government has mentioned that it is out of their control. The company makes a wise decision and I have to protect my children at home.” Alice said: “I feel very worried upon seeing the cases are increasing everyday. Yes, the filming is halted and safety is the most important.”
Finally, Moses Chan (陳豪) is involved in new series, Drug-Beating Strongmen (破毒強人) and supports the company’s decision: “It is best to go back to work when the situation becomes stable. It helps to reduce the risk of infection and let’s fight in this battle together.”
