"Legal Mavericks 2" halts filming after actors fall ill

3 Feb – The filming of TVB's new series, "Legal Mavericks" had to be postponed recently after five of its lead stars fell sick almost simultaneously.

As reported on Mingpao, producer Lam Chi Wah who was asked about the situation, stated that Vincent Wong, Sisley Choi, Owen Cheung, and Jessica Kan were the first to have fallen ill, followed by lead actress Kelly Cheung, whose subsequent sickness led to the cancellation of the day's filming.

"They had been shooting day after day, and I think they fell ill from the wind and rain while filming on location. At present, we will let them rest and take care of their health," he said.

On the other hand, TVB Assistant Director for Drama Production Tsui Ching Hong said that the company has taken sufficient measures to ensure everybody's safety on the set.

"I understand that artistes need enough time to rest, so I have reminded all the supervisors to arrange their schedules flexibly so that they can have ample rest time," he said.
