[part 1]✨ Jeffrey Xu can’t bear to torture Felicia Chin in new TV drama
Local celebrity lovebirds Felicia Chin and Jeffrey Xu are set to take on their first drama together since officially becoming a couplealmost two years ago – but their onscreen relationship is nowhere as saccharine sweet as their real-life romance. “I feel happy yet uneasy [to be working with Felicia] at the same time,” Jeffrey told Toggle at yesterday’s imaging session for Life Less Ordinary, a 130-episode long-form drama that premieres in October. “When I read the script, I got upset and asked the writers, ‘Why must you torture me?’” As it turns out, Jeffrey’s character Xu Tao is a typically “macho” guy who bosses his girlfriend Lin Shu Qi (played by Felicia) around. “He loves her, but he’s selfish and puts his dreams to be an actor above her, which I might find hard [to portray],” he said, seemingly baffled at the thought of a man not treating his woman like a princess.
There’s also the possibility of severe squabbles on set (just ask folks like Xiang Yun and Edmund Chen, or Chen Li Ping and Rayson Tan), and the challenge of having to pretend like any genuine clashes never happened. “To be honest, working with your other half is quite dangerous because it’s hard to avoid friction, and you might have to act all lovey-dovey on screen even after you’ve had a big fight, so it can be difficult,” Felicia mused.
However, the pair chooses to look on the bright side of their collaboration: Jeffrey believes that since they’re practically joined at the hip, they can take the opportunity to dive deeper into the story and their characters together, while Felicia is excited to present a new image of themselves to the audience. “As long as he stops treating me badly when the cameras stop rolling!” she quipped.
Don’t worry, Feli, judging by the besotted way Jeffrey was eyeing you throughout our entire conversation, that won’t be a problem at all. [©@toggle_sg ]
