Ali Lee Wrongly Calls Kenneth Ma by Real Name When Filming Series
Roger Kwok, Kenneth Ma, Natalie Tong, Ali Lee, Kelly Cheung, Matthew Ho, et al. attended the blessing ceremony of "Big White Duel". Kenneth acts as cardiothoracic surgeon 'Tong Ming'; partner Ali revealed that she mixed it up during work before: "Sometimes I wrongly called him by his real name, 'Ma Ming'. Had to immediately correct myself". Kenneth expressed that he has a romantic storyline with Ali and Natalie in the series, but it is underplayed. He said, "No kiss scenes. I also want to have [some]! Ha ha". He immediately changed the topic to Roger, saying that his scenes with Kelly and Ashley Chu are rather intense. Ali previously revealed that she was scared of fainting upon seeing blood; portraying a doctor this time requires having to encounter bloody surgery scenes. She laughingly said that there were no difficulties: "I am actually scared of seeing my own blood. Not scared of seeing other people's blood. When I was younger, I cut myself while making salad before...immediately got shocked and fainted upon seeing myself bleeding, but nothing happened when I saw bleeding during filming".
Roger Kwok and Kelly Cheung Ask Each Other for Guidance
Regarding Kenneth saying that he had many intense scenes, Roger laughingly said that they were already cut out: "Leave it for filming the movie version first. I do not have intense scenes. Perhaps Kenneth just said that because he was jealous of me". Roger said that filming is very smooth and pleasant. Maintaining one's weight is the most labourious. Have to concentrate on memorizing the dialogue and learning how to use the surgical equipment from real neurosurgeons. He laughingly said, "I am not scared of blood. I have also vomited a few buckets. There is more dialogue than when playing a lawyer; there is also a lot of English mixed in. I will ask Kelly for guidance then. Her English is good; if [I] do not say it well, then it is related to her". Kelly welcomes teaching Roger English; she can also take the opportunity to ask him for guidance on speaking Chinese. She laughingly said, "My Chinese is not good. Would not feel sorry if I were to ask Roger. If [I] do not speak Chinese correctly, then it is related to him".
