With the rapid spread of H7N9 bird flu virus in mainland China, the cast and crew of "Always and Ever" (originally titled "Love Reverses Three Lifetimes of Fate") are wary about their safety as they travel to Fushan to begin shooting.
As reported on Popular Asians website, the drama's lead actors – Bobby Au Yeung and Esther Kwan took extra precaution by travelling separately in private cars while supporting casts; Ngo Ka Nin, Mandy Wong and Rebecca Zhu packed extra items for flu prevention.
Meanwhile, TVB also did its part to ensure the casts' safety, including cancelling media on-set visits, and renting out a local restaurant to serve its crew during the twenty-day work trip, eliminating risks of food contamination.
Mandy, who is also filming "The Hippocratic Crush 2", stated, "I am feeling under the weather since filming back to back. My family is very worried. They prepared face masks, hand sanitizer, and instant noodles to protect me from the flu."
The actress also expressed her frustration for not being able to try mainland's cuisine like she planned to, being the first time filming in China, after being advised against doing so by her family
