Bernice Liu, Shirley Yeung, Kate Tsui In New Series

Bernice Liu Bik Yee, Shirley Yeung Si Kei, Kate Tsui Tsi San, and Michelle Mai Shuet were at the costume fitting for new series "Breakthrough Action" ("Dat Wai Hang Dung"). Ron Ng Cheuk Hei and Steven Ma Chun Wai have also been confirmed to appear in the series, but they were unable to appear at the costume fitting due to their work schedules.

"Breakthrough Action" is produced by Mui Siu Ching and the series will revolve around horse racing.

The leading ladies all appeared in expensive designer fashions yesterday. The crystal-studded sunglasses which
Michelle Mai Shuet wore was especially sponsored by an American designer. There are only 2 pairs of these sunglasses available in the world. Madonna was once willing to pay $780,000 (USD) for them, but was still unable to purchase them successfully. Producer Mui Siu Ching also mentioned that in the series, the leading actresses will be wearing a lot of designer clothes from sponsors.

Bernice and Shirley will be portraying characters which they have never acted before. In the series, Bernice Liu's character is born in a wealthy family, so she will have a lot of beautiful clothes to wear. Bernice will be returning to Hong Kong as a student from Canada and she will be paired up with Steven Ma. (Will Bernice have any kissing scenes with Steven?) Bernice said she doesn't know yet.

Also another challenge in portraying her role is that at the outset of the series, her character will only be 16 years old. Thinking back to the time when she was only 16, Bernice said that she wore heavy eyeglasses at the time. Bernice will also be singing the sub-theme song in the series.

Bernice wore DKNY at the costume fitting yesterday. She also mentioned that as her character is very feminine, she will be wearing high heels most of the time.

Shirley Yeung will be playing a villian in the series. Her character is a fashion designer who will do anything in order to succeed. As a result, Shirley's image will be more mature in "Breakthrough Action."

Earlier there were reports that Shirley, in order to earn money to purchase a new home, went to some crude location to stage a concert. Rumors also claimed that Shirley was taken advantage of by the men present. Shirley was bothered by the rumors and explained, "My concert arrangements were made by TVB. I was only performing by myself. The audience was quite excited in seeing a Hong Kong artist. But the tabloids exaggerated on the story."

(Did Shirley dress very sexily at the concert?) "Not really; I did not dress sexily intentionally. Please do not write anymore about these rumors."

Several days earlier, Steven, Ron, Shirley, and Kate went to practice horseback riding to prepare for "Breakthrough Action." Aside from Kate, the other actors had already had basic horseriding training from filming previous series. The horseriding lesson was just a refresher course to help them master the basics.

As Shirley had previously fell from a horse while filming "Blade Heart" in Beijing, she was very careful when she got on her horse. Shirley said, "Since I had a horse riding accident before, I do feel wary. If I fall again and hurt my spinal cord, then it will be quite troublesome. But I will try to overcome my fears."

Kate had been on a horse before while competing in Miss Hong Kong. Although she never had formal riding lessons, she finds horse riding to be a lot of fun.
