1st look at Fann Wong范文芳+Li Nanxing李南星+Rui En瑞恩 in the new MediaCorp Channel 8 drama ‘On The Fringe 边缘父子’
In ‘On The Fringe 边缘父子’, Rui En plays a “中途之家”义工，协助囚犯在出狱前适应社会，善良、乐观，虽因意外导致双目失明，却积极面对人生，从不怨声载道。她知道田一邦(Li Nanxing)当年是误入歧途才犯案，其实本人十分正直，遂不断鼓励他开创人生新篇章，并立阻田一邦被反派刘佳丽(Fann Wong)拉入黑道。
Rest will be a luxury for Rui En 瑞恩. First it was ‘A Tale of 2 Cities 乐在双城’, next comes ‘The In-Laws 麻婆斗妇’ (still shooting). Immediately after that, she jumps straight into another drama production ‘On The Fringe 边缘父子’ to be followed closely (maybe even overlapping) with the production of ‘The Righteous 正义武馆’ (she has to do kung-fu) and ending the year with the production of Unriddle 2 最火搭档2.
She will have to work very hard to differentiate the various roles (so far so good) given the unanimous vote of confidence from the various demanding Executive Producers. You either end up with audience finding it ‘too much’ of the same Rui En or you succeed in becoming the next most admired character actress after 黄碧仁 and 李锦梅...
And it is really exciting to have Fann Wong 范文芳 becoming 有情有义黑社会大姐头，内敛不外露，不怒而威，在帮派头目死后，接手管理众弟兄，但面对“内忧外患”，问题重重，深陷危机，这时更发现自己有孕在身。她知道田一邦(Li Nanxing) 重情重义，设法拉拢他。。。We will be seeing Fann Wong soon as a simple minded ugly-duckling ‘superwoman’ in the upcoming drama ‘Be Happy 生日快乐’ this month...followed by her August’s 黑社会大姐头’On The Fringe 边缘父子’ and possibly one more role in last quarter of the year... But first let’s take a look at the 1st trailer of her upcoming role in ‘Be Happy 生日快乐’:
Everybody loves Li Nanxing 李南星 – the Ah Ge of all Ah Ge. He became a household name when he first acted in ‘On The Fringe 边缘少年’ decades ago...now he is back as 田一邦aka前“边缘少年”，出入感化院，后因抢劫兼严重伤人被判入狱，妻子与他离婚。话不多，冷酷，重义气，身手敏捷。出狱后发现一直未见面的儿子正步上歧途，想方设法阻止儿子走上自己的老路，父子间冲突不断。他摆脱不了黑势力，被大姐头刘佳丽拉入阵营，义工莎莎则希望把他拉出来，走回正途。
Besides Zhang Yao Dong 张耀栋 as the evil 新一代黑道老大, we also get to see a strong cast like Yao Wen Long 姚玟隆, Eelyn Kok 郭惠雯 (who is enjoying rising popularity in Malaysia now with her 理温馨亲情电视剧’The Seeds of Life 渔米人家’), Pang Ling Ling 潘玲玲, Brandon Wong 黄炯耀, Zzen 章缜翔, Constance Song 宋怡霏, Alan Tern 唐育书, Rayson Tan 陈泰铭, Taiwanese newbie Kate Pang 庞蕾馨, Chen Tian Wen 陈天文, Chen Guo Hua 陈国华, etc.
The drama will also introduce a new ala ‘Joshua Ang of 2011′ as the son 子 – Edwin Goh 吴劲威 was last seen in ‘Fighting Spider’ and the Zoe Tay’s movie ‘割爱’ and has since grown up looking even better than before (see a photo he recently took with Female magazine):
