S.H.E's Ella lugs a 20kg fridge for new drama

S.H.E's Ella lugs a 20kg fridge for new drama - Saturday, August 22

Ella Chen (from Taiwanese girl group S.H.E) and actor Jerry Yan recently collaborated in upcoming Taiwanese drama series, Down With Love. It was originally scheduled to air in July, however due to the two main leads' conflicting work schedules, the debut date was pushed back to September instead, resulting in a large amount of monetary loss to the production team.

Jerry recently flew down to Japan for a week-long meet-and greet-session with his overseas fans. He went on a ten-day leave period, which left the production crew with no choice but to halt filming. Filming resumed yesterday as a member of the crew wryly said, "If they had easy work schedules, they won't be called big shots for nothing. We were already mentally prepared for this before filming started."

Despite the delay, the crew member was full of praise for Jerry's professionalism and shared that the actor was very accomodating. Although both artistes' contract with the production team had expired in July, they were very obliging to the crew's filming requests as they wanted to produce only the best results.

In an interview, Jerry's manager, Fenny, acknowledged that his contract with the crew expired late July. They had informed the crew beforehand of Jerry's album promotions and fan-meeting in Japan. The concerned actor even sent out encouraging text messages to the production team and informed them that his Japanese fans were eagerly awaiting the drama's release.

The production crew recently filmed a taxing scene which showed Ella's character carrying a refrigerator. The bubbly actress shared her initial shock when she read the script and claimed that it was "too exaggerated". She did not expect to be given the sole responsibility of bearing that heavy burden and initially could not stand up with the 20kg refrigerator on her back.

Ella relied on sheer determination and endurance to finish filming that particular scene. Fellow male crew members yelped in pain when they tried to carry the fridge. Like a true superwoman, Ella persisted and doggedly walked on for a few minutes with the fridge on her back, up and down a flight of stars with no help. The crew members were impressed and continuously sang praises of her willpower and good work ethic.
