Michelle Yim Looks Forward to New Challenges
Michelle Yim noted, “Fortunately, the filming for Big Eunuch was delayed, thus I had a chance to join the cast! I had to refuse many other filming projects in order to take this role!” However, she did not mind losing out [on money] to take on a good script and the chance to work with good costars. Michelle revealed that the scriptwriters put a lot of effort into constructing the dialogue, which often contained rarely used phrases and will pose as a new challenge for Michelle.
Wayne Lai: “Li Lianying Is Not Evil!”
Wayne Lai indicated that no matter who his costar was, he was happy. He looked forward to collaborating with Michelle Yim, praising her for her extensive experience. During the filming process, they complemented each other. Big Eunuch has already completed 10 days of filming. Wayne joked that he was “completely castrated” to portray the eunuch character, Li Lianying. At the prayer ceremony, Wayne knelt before Michelle and escorted her hand as per palace formalities.
Wayne indicated that Big Eunuch did not resemble the typical palace fighting series. The drama will also explore the journey of Li Lianying rising from a low-level eunuch to become one of the Empress Dowager’s must trusted confidantes. Wayne revealed that he will portray Li Lianying as a 20-year-old to 40-year-old man.
The Li Lianying character gave the impression that it was an evil role. Wayne said that it was difficult to classify Li Lianying purely as a good or evil character. He explained that Li Lianying knew how to deal with interpersonal relationships extremely well. Historically, it was known that he had money-making mechanisms and knew how to establish harmony between his subordinates and superiors. Thus, it was difficult to say that he was an evil character. Wayne indicated his excitement and enthusiasm in taking the role.
In an earlier report, it was revealed that Nancy Wu and Wayne will portray the love relationship of a palace maid and eunuch.
