5 Dec – Muslim Hui-Chinese actress JJ Jia recently blamed her filming crew for her lateness in attending a promotional event.
According to Jaynestars, on 1 December, the actress arrived 45 minutes late at a promotional event for a mobile phone brand in Mongkok. Her lateness reportedly caused the event staff to roam around pointlessly for nearly an entire hour.
However, in a press conference following the event, JJ apologised to the event staff, stating, "I only received the 3pm filming schedule for "A Change Of Heart" this morning and it took an hour for the filming to start. That is why I could not arrive on time. I am sorry. I am also upset with the sudden turn of events."
Asked if her lateness was caused by the production assistant's inability to work effectively, JJ said, "I don't want to talk behind people's backs, but I am very unhappy with their arrangements!"
This is not the first time actors have complained about filming crews. Earlier, Francis Ng and Julian Cheung reportedly blasted the "Triumph In The Skies 2" crew's production assistant for doing a poor job of handling their schedules and managing time.
