I think this series looks pretty interesting. I can't wait to see Bernice and Leila in it. I've always watched to see a series which has Bernice and Leila in it. Now I finally can. From the news report they had the other day about this series, it seems pretty interesting. I hope they will have more news about it later on because I want to learn more about this series.

Wow, Bernice looks very pretty in this series. Can't wait to see both Bernice and Leila in this series.

TVB Latest Grand Production - 'The Legendary Ren Jia' 《盛世仁傑》
Sunday December 30, 2007 Hong Kong

Credits: TVB Chinese News Collection/on.cc
Translated by: evodrift @ asainfanatics

TVB latest drama: 'The Legendary Ren Jia' <盛世人傑> held a costume fitting ceremony today, where the cast members dressed in their period costume's made an appearance . Members of the cast in this grand production amongst others are:
Kent Cheng (鄭則士), Sunny Chan (陳錦鴻), Sonija Kwok (郭羨妮), Bernice Liu (廖碧兒), Leila Tong (唐寧), Claire Yiu (姚嘉妮), Tracy Ip (葉翠翠) and veteran; Lee Heung Kam (李香琴),

Kent was pleased to be working with Kam again after their return from ATV and he expressed that previously either at TVB or ATV, they did not really have the chance to work with each other. This time in this series, they will be playing the role of mother and son. Kam revealed that she has accepted roles in two series for TVB after her return and aside from 'Prosperous', in January she will also be filming 'Heart of Greed 2' <溏心風暴2>. Asked if she'll find it difficult? She replied with a laughter that she won't know but since both producers had asked her to take part, she felt bad to turn them down.

After returning, she commented that she don't know most of the newer artiste but had watched Bernice and Sonjia's dramas before. She added that all along, she don't like to take part in period dramas but this time it's during winter, she believe she can cope. Asked if she had made known to the station the number of hours she need for rest: she replied no but the producers have been told by Miss Chen to look after her. She also feels that irregardless of talents, equipment and sets; all are very good. Costumes are also much prettier.
Asked if her fee is more than that of ATV: Didn't think about that, if there's work, I'll work.

This is Kent's second series after returning to TVB and also the first time collaborating with Bernice. Reporters pointed out that rumours always surround Sonjia. Kent laughed and replied that all these years he did not have any rumours and believe it's a misunderstanding in Sonjia's case. Asked if he was concerned about Bernice's poor grasp of Chinese would slow down progress during filming;
Kent expressed that it will not but obviously we don't want the progress to be slowed down due to this, that's why it's a must to study the scipt well. When reporter pointed out that in Bernice's previous ancient drama 'Devil's Disciple' <強劍>, she was critised for her poor cantonese.
Kent feels it's not fair to put it that way as she has been working hard to correct them. It's not her responsibility if her Cantonese is not good, on the contrary it's the Company's responsibilty.

Sonija's character this time round will be that of Kent's wife. She will be playing the role of a loving and caring mother to an eight year old son and also the stepmother of Bernice. Actually, this is not her first time playing the role as a mother. Asked if she is worried about being
type-cast in such roles, she replied with a smile that she's not because it's a process one has to make in acting.

Asked if this series marks the end of her suspension, Sonija expressed she's tired of talking about the past. Reporters commented that this time round she should be free from gossips, she smiled that she's very happy. Although it's the first time she and Bernice will be collaborating, she feels that they should not have any problems.

When asked if it's the Company's intention to 'clean-up' her image by giving her such a role:
She replied: Maybe and that she's happy there will not be anymore rumours and hope the role will bring her some credit but she emphasized that it's not on purpose to change her image.
Of course this time round with the role of a good person, she's still happy.
She added that the most important thing now is to communicate more with her screen son as he is very shy

Sonija Kwok Becomes Bernice Liu's Mother - Blessing Ceremony
Credits & Thanks to Serena@http://asian-gossip.blogspot.com/
31 January, 2008
Source

TVB's new series 《盛世人傑》 had a worship ceremony for the first day of filming. The artistes in attendance were Bernice Liu, Sonija Kwok, Cheng Jut Si (鄭則士) and Li Xiang Qin (李香琴). Lydia Shum and Qin Jie (琴姐) are good friends. Qin Jie revealed that Lydia's health is good recently. They went out for vegetarian dishes a month earlier. She encouraged her to be careful of the food she was eating. Sonija's character in the series is the mother of Bernice and the stepmother of Matthew Ko. She is very happy to be called “mom” even though it is in the series only. For this series, there are a lot of ancient words for dialogue but fortunately Sonija's Chinese is good. Sonija should be able to handle it. Lately there are reports that Michael Tao and his wife is reuniting. Sonija said that she would not respond to it.

Also, Edison Chan and other artistes are involved in rated R pictures on the internet. Even though, the photos authenticities were not proven yet but it has incurred a lot of attention. Sonija doesn't know Edison personally but she feels that the photos are not real. She doesn't plan to examine the photos. Sonija said that as an artiste, she needs to protect herself from these situations. Luckily she only has pictures of dogs and cats on her phone. It won't contain any pictures of males to prevent misunderstanding. Someone uploaded pictures of an AV girl who resembled her onto the internet before this scandal happened. So Sonija doesn't view those pictures as a sign of her not supporting the behaviour. It is very important for girls to know how to protect themselves.

Bernice did not view those pictures because she doesn't want to support that behaviour. She feels that everyone has their privacy and doesn't need to make it known. People should not be debating this because it affects the people who are involved. She hopes that the media would stop publishing those pictures or else it becomes encouragement for the perpetrators.

New Years spent memorizing scripts, Leila Tong tries to find time for fun

Leila Tong always gives people a sense of being care free and lively, but this year she has to change all that to becoming more "serious" to fit her character in her new series.
As for New Year wishes, Leila expressed that all she hopes is to be healthy for the next year. Having experience in the movie, music, and series industry, Leila's New Year wish is only to stay healthy. "I'm always sick! When flying around I usually get sick.

The worst when I threw up a lot. That time I was sick for a long time, I was suddenly hungry at night so I went around to find some food to cook...who knew after that I got really dizzy and the started throwing up. I was sick for the rest of the day, so now I'm more careful about what I eat."

Leila's currently filming the TVB series 'The Legendary Ren Jia' "盛世仁杰" and unfortunately she only has 2 days of break during the Chinese New Year Holiday. She laughed that she will use these days wisely, "Besides having a New Years Dinner with my family, I also have to memorize lines!

Although I really hate memorizing stuff, but because in this series, the dialogue is long and difficult to remember, so I really have to keep practicing. I need to keep reminding myself not to play too much during the New Year. Its really hard to get into character with all the festivities around me."

27 February, 2008
by evodrift

Bernice attended a function in Macau and she expressed that recently she's got a few assignments there. She is contemplating of buying a house there as a vacation house. She also mentioned that she is having a hard time filming 'The Legendary Ren Jia' and have not been sleeping well for the last four days.

Fighting Girl Bernice Liu, so cold that hand hurts

Yesterday Bernice Liu and Queenie Chu were filming outdoor scenes. Lately the weather has been rather chilly. Although they are filming an ancient series, but the costumes are thin and they needed to have heat packets under in order to stay warm. Because in the series there are many fighting scenes, causing pain for Bernice.

Queenie and Bernice yesterday filmed outdoor scenes for new series 《盛世人傑》. Because the weather was cold, they both had heat packets under the costumes to stay warm. Western girl Bernice, recently had to film many fighting scenes, she says: "lately the weather has been extra cold. Just like today, early in the morning I had to film a fighting scene, fought so much that my hand hurts, have film in many places." Speaking of saying lines and acting at the same time, Bernice says that she has asked Kent Cheng for some pointers, she says: "he gave me a lot of advice, in the series he plays my dad and there are many scenes where we speak together, he told me that even if you NG, its ok, the most important thing is to understand the meaning. Because the reaction expression is also very important!"

Does Not Mind looking weird
In the series, Queenie plays an empress, although her make up and hair needs some time to prepare, but she says she does not mind. "The most important is to be beautiful, at first I was worried that my ancient look, looks weird, but luckily after trying out the costumes co-workers said I looked good, I like it myself too!"

The scene above is about our whole family is being arrested and sent to prison. The prop shackle I'm wearing is very light, but for close up filming they put on really heavy ones and I have to cry.
I have a lot of crying scenes in this series.
