Charmaine Sheh longs to leave maternal home (TVB) and head north to make money
Last night, the Hong Kong Performing Artistes Guild presented Charmaine Sheh with the Most Outstanding Actress (Television) Award. Yesterday Charmaine attended a public event and expressed that she wanted to go personally to accept the award, she said: "It's a pity I couldn't make it. I feel the award is a great source of encouragement. (Consolation Award?) No, my award is the outstanding actress award. (Did you want to go accept the award together with Moses Chan?) I don't know who won the awards. (Celebrate with him in private?) I won't be able to celebrate for a while, I have to rush back to Wuxi to continue filming until the end of the month. Then I have to rush back to shoot Forensic Heroes III. (It was rumored that Frankie Lam and Kevin Cheng are not qualified for the roles, so they were excluded from the cast?) How so? Every TVB Artist is a star, saying it like that is unfair to the artists. (You have a lot of pressure?) I have pressure every time I shoot a series, have to communicate with the producer because we fear people may get bored of watching."
Series based on production quality
Charmaine denied that she's terminating her TVB contract due to being displeased that Sheren Tang got the TV Queen award: "Why would I be displeased? There will always be someone who gets the award, and someone who doesn't. It's not that I didn't get any awards myself. (It's just a consolation award?) What is considered a consolation award? Are we suppose to just have 1 award? I don't know where the rumor is blown from. I am still a TVB artist, still have a 1-2 year contract and still discussing. (What requests do you have?) A pay raise. (How about awards?) Why, it can be like that? I feel what's needed is quality productions. (How about personal benefit?) Well if the series does well, then I'll have personal benefit. (Head outside of TVB?) I have considered it. The Mainland market is huge, have a demand of HK artists, the money is pretty good in terms of filming series in Mainland. But adding the ribbon-cutting events, advertisements, public events, etc. the earnings are descent. Still have to look at the quality of productions."
