TVB new series Silver Mansion Golden Powder <銀樓金粉> held a blessing ceremony today to mark the start of studio filming. The series stars a host of veteran actors including Nancy Sit (薛家燕), Ng Wai Kwok (伍衛國) and Paul Chun (秦沛) as well as younger cast members Christine Ng (伍詠薇), Shirley Yeung (楊思琦), Nancy Wu (胡定欣) and Jack Wu (胡諾言).
Nancy (Sit) revealed that she plays Paul's first wife in the series and his character has three other wives, so there is a lot of conflict between them in the storyline. She said that her character is quite scheming and realises that sometimes it is necessary to take the wrong path in order to protect yourself. However, she said that in real life, she has never taken the wrong decision, no matter how difficult the situation has been.
In her spare time, Nancy has also been busy raising HK$10 million to build a clinic in the Tin Shui Wai area because the government does not plan to build a hospital there for another ten years. She has been busy drawing on her contacts in various professions to help out and she secured a lot of support earlier during her appearance in the Tung Wah charity show.
Shirley explained that she plays a maid in the series, which is a period drama set in the 1920's and in one scene, her character shows her body to the young master, played by Matt Yeung (揚明). She also has to film a scene where she is bathing under a waterfall and she said that she is quite worried about shooting this in the cold weather and keeping warm. She said she will also be bullied by Rebecca Chan (陳秀珠) in the show.
