Charmaine Sheh Rescues Baby From Railroad Accident

Charmaine Sheh Sze Man and Joe Ma Tak Chung were filming in Tuen Mun yesterday for "Phoenix Quartet." They were shooting a railroad derailment scene. Charmaine and Joe were filming very long hours and both felt very tired. But when they filmed before the camera, they immediately got into their roles. Even the weak Charmaine appeared to be quite strong when she had to run around carrying a baby in her arms for the scene. TVB set up props to make the derailment look more releastic. They dispatched several extras for the scene. Charmaine had to carry a baby in her arms and luckily the baby was very obedient and did not resist.

Charmaine said afterwards that it was not hard work. "It's been okay. The baby is quite cute too!" When the baby sat on Joe's lap, the baby sat comfortably and securely, it appears that Joe has considerable experience with babies!

"Phoenix Quartet" features several independent stories across different historical timelines. As a result, there have been instances where Joe and Charmaine have been filming various scenes in different stories on the same day. Joe said, "It's inevitable to be confused! The whole series is grounded on the same lead actors. However on the same day, I have experienced playing 3 different characters in 3 separate stories. However, I tried many new opportunities in this series, such as imitating Mao Zedong and Elvis Presley!"

Charmaine agreed with Joe's comments. "I have been confused too. Sometimes I will forget which actors play my characters' parents. Both Joe and I have called each other by the wrong names before!"
