Charmaine Sheh, Susanna Kwan, Michelle Yim, Fala Chen and Moses Chan yesterday filmed the sales presentation for period drama, Lau Sam Ho. The weather was hot yesterday although it is now Autumn. When Charmaine was not filming, she quickly used an umbrella to shield herself from the scorching sun. Kevin Cheng will, reportedly, be part of the cast but he did not make an appearance yesterday. Apparently, Kevin was filming something else in the studios.
The concept of filming sales presentation every year is merely for sales and advertising purposes. Sometimes, series that are planned may not actually be filmed, or sometimes the cast may change. However, Charmaine, Tavia Yeung, Michelle Yim and Susanna Kwan hope that this period drama will be filmed successfully. Susanna expressed that she wants this series to be filmed because she has never filmed a period drama before. It will be a fresh experience for her, plus she said the ancient costumes are very beautiful. The role of the villain once again falls on Michelle Yim.
Lau Sam Ho is reportedly HK's version of Jewel in the Palace. The story is about the power struggle of the womenfolk in the palace. Moses Chan will take on the role of the Emperor, while Charmaine, the titular character - Lau Sam Ho. She will start off as a humble palace servant and work her way up until she successfully becomes the Chief of the Royal Kitchen.
Charmaine also hoped that the series will be filmed and also keep the cast feature in the sales presentation. She wants to work with both Michelle Yim and Susanna kwan.
