Just finished filming: TVB’s 刑事情報科.

I've just finished filming 刑事情報科 at TVB. My role was a police inspector in a special branch of the police force which specialises in getting information about suspects. There were several groups in our department. My group was responsible for tracking people and getting photographs of their activities. Overall, the story was pretty good.

Two months of filming, I had just one day of on-location shooting and fourteen days of studio shooting. Because the police station set is so large, it takes up the whole studio and whenever it's set up, we have to try to film as many scenes as possible. The later days of studio filming were quite challenging, more often than not shooting from 7 at night until 5 in the morning. I'd get back home at around 5.30 to 6 in the morning and then wait until my wife got up for work so that I wouldn't disturb her sleep. Staying up all night really hurts and you spend much of the next day walking around like a zombie; limbs feeling loose and numb and a brain that doesn't want to work.

Most of my parts in the TVB series are very small, just a few scenes, so it's rare that I get to spend so much time with other cast members. This time was different and it was great. We the cast spent a lot of time working and waiting together.

Some people have emailed and asked me with which other actors at TVB am I most familiar. Those would be the actors I 'grew up with' at TVB. You probably don't know most of them. They include 林家棟, 黃德斌, 麥嘉倫, 游飆 and 王維德, all dedicated people. There are many other wonderful people at TVB that I respect and enjoy working with. In fact, there are too many to list. TVB has given me a lot in the last eighteen years. The opportunity to know and work with these people is just one of the things they've given me and I'm grateful for that.
