TVB Artistes Take COVID-19 PrecautionsGrace
Amidst the surge of COVID-19 cases on Hong Kong, actor Robert Mak (麥德羅) and singer Zaina Sze (施匡翹) respectively announce that they are tested positive. Their colleagues at TVB and RTHK are all taking precautions to prevent further spread and are self-isolating to protect their family and friends.
According to reports, over one hundred colleagues who had interacted with Zaina in the past few days went to get tested. Joey Thye (戴祖儀) shared on Instagram that she was tested negative. While, TVB has postponed all press conferences and meetups for the two days, daily operations are still continuing as scheduled.
The cast of TVB’s Seven Princesses <七公主> had their schedules canceled yesterday night. Aside from the actors, all staff and behind-the-scenes personnel had worn face masks. “Cancellations would affect the filming progress,” said Real Ting (丁子朗). “But we are confident that we would be able to pick things up back again.”
Lokyi Lai (黎諾懿), who has been filming Detective Investigation Diaries <刑偵日記>, told the press through a phone interview that he and costar Kayan Yau (游嘉欣) are currently self-isolating. Both actors were in close proximity with Zaina Sze.
“I’m still living in my house, but my wife and son are currently living with their grandmother,” he said. “My son is still very young after all. I have heard that Kayan was tested negative, which puts me at ease, but the staff and I will still go get tested, just in case.” Asking if his son misses him, he said, “He does. He would ask me why I’m not coming home. I have to tell him that I don’t want him to get sick. There’s been a new community outbreak. I don’t even want him to leave the house at the moment.”
Stephanie Ho (何雁詩) is also in self-isolation. Her PR agent was tested positive. Her fiancé, singer Fred Cheng (鄭俊弘) canceled his upcoming TVB event as a result.
“Safety comes first,” he said via phone interview. “We are currently well, thank you for all the concerns. Stay safe, everyone!”
