Joyce Tang and Evergreen Mak were in Sai Kung to shoot for Meet The Daughter-in-Laws. The scene was about Evergreen jumping into the sea because he thought Joyce cheated on him, and then Joyce jumps in as well to rescue him.
In the series, Joyce plays a superstar. She was dressed in an exaggerated heroine costume for the scene. Evergreen didn't know how to swim, so he swallowed some sea water and choked.
Fortunately, they were able to get through the scene smoothly. Having to rescue 100kg Evergreen in the water was indeed a challenge for Joyce, who joked: "No fear, Fat people can float better.
"Also, when I took lessons on scuba diving, I had to learn how to rescue people from the water as well. Although I haven't learned up to that extent, it was still no problem for me, just as long as he doesn't move too much."
Evergreen does not know how to swim, and he expressed that he often gets teased by his son, reports Oriental Daily.
"Last time when I filmed a scene where I jumped into the Shing Mun River, the director arranged a frogman to hold onto me below the water.
"I actually lost over 10 pounds, but for this series the producer told me to gain the weight back."
