Greetings and salutations, fellow stargazers! This is your Showbiz Sista on the set of the upcoming Channel U drama, Marry Me, on which filming has recently commenced.
But first, a pause to insert a true story from Yvonne Lim: “When people ask, ‘What’s the title of the drama?’ and I say ‘Marry Me’, they say, ‘No, I’m not going to marry you’!”
Yvonne, together with Jesseca Liu and Ya Hui, play a trio of friends with successful careers who, for one reason or other, just can’t seem to meet and marry Mr Right. Thomas Ong, Pierre Png, Yuan Shuai and Jeffrey Xu also star as potential candidates.
And what about the happily-married Pierre, who plays a taxi driver in love with Jess? Does he find women difficult to understand?
“You can either see them as a problem or you see them as a mystery,” Pierre theorized. “When you see them as a mystery… everything is interesting, and you are intrigued by just about every response you get out of her. Whereas if you find her a problem, you just want to find a way to avoid that problem – maybe you come home a little bit later, when she’s fast asleep!”
Catch Marry Me starting Feb 27, Wednesdays to Fridays at 8pm on MediaCorp TV Channel U. Showbiz Sista, signing out. Live long and pop corn!
