I bet many of you have already seen this on TV as it has been aired 4 times since last week. To those who really made time to stay at home to watch, thank you so much. Honestly, I didn't expect there would be many people watching as I thought this was just a short documentary TV show, nothing was interesting. Only after many people told me that they watched my TV show, I knew I was wrong. Thank you once again from the bottom of my heart.
In fact, this wasn't my first time acting with Mediacorp. The first drama I did with them in 2011 was Point of Entry as supporting role in one of the episodes in season 2. Surprisingly, the highest-rate one hour drama did not give me as many compliments as the 30 minutes TV show did. I received so many positive feedback from my friends, my clients and my fans about how natural my acting skill was, how well I acted...That really means a lot to me!
In Point of Entry, I acted as a Vietnamese prostitute, whereas in Crime Watch, I played as a mama-san (commonly used to describe a woman who manages the female workers in bars and brothels). In a way, I got promoted in my job, lolz.
Shooting Crime Watch was much easier and faster than shooting for Point of Entry. I managed to remember the script faster and I only had to re-take 3 times for each scene. The only problem was I had to speak in Vietnamese language throughout the show, specifically in the Southern accent (Ho Chi Minh). This might sound weird but for a girl who is originally from the North (Hanoi) and has been living abroad for almost 10 years, this was, indeed a challenge. So, my dear Vietnamese friends and fans, please pardon me if I didn't sound like a Ho Chi Minh girl in the show.
Now, here are some "Behind the scenes" photos I would like to share with you, I know you wanted to see this.
Getting hair and make-up done at 6am at Mediacorp make-up unit as our shoot started at 7am sharp.
First day at the shoot.
Shoes, bags, sunglasses are mine. Cloths are from Mediacorp.
Photo bombing with the crew. I was so happy to see the same old people that I worked with during Point of Entry time.
This camera was so much heavier than I thought. Salute the cameraman!
I know how it feels to have your hands handcuffed.
How could a mama-san look so cute like that? :D
Finally, here is the video that you all have been waiting and asking me for.
