Return of the Cuckoo movie: First time for Charmaine Sheh to film drunk scene
'Century couple team 世紀情侶檔', Charmaine Sheh (佘詩曼) and Julian Cheung (張智霖) were reunited again when filming movie version, Return of the Cuckoo (十月初五的月光).

Three of them were eating, drinking and sharing their old memories at open-air food stall together. However, Charmaine started to give up on herself after losing her husband and turned to drinking and gambling instead. Once, she was gambling with people from connections and was piled with drinks after losing. Initially, Julian wanted to help but Charmaine pushed him away and drunk the whole bottle of whisky.
Received encouragement from director when filming drunk scene
Charmaine is well-known as good drinker and disclosed the details about one day before filming drinking scene: "The director asked me if I filmed any drunk scene before and I said nope and he asked me to give it a try. But I have no idea if the effects is good and he said it did not matter and can film it again. He gives me lots of encouragement and I decide to give it a try." Charmaine expressed she became daring to act after drinking: "I was tipsy when filming and able to understand Kwan Ho's pain when putting in full devotion. I feel that my performance is different is slightly different from the past."
Not afraid of dirty when sleeping in back alley
In the movie, tipsy Charmaine felt emotional and was smoking after drinking at open-air food stall in back alley and committed suicide by slitting her wrist. Fortunately, Julian discovered it and rescued her. During the filming, Charmaine put in real feelings and her hands were not in control and failed to light up a cigarette but managed to film the scene in one take. Although Charmaine is TV Queen, but she does not mind sleeping at wet and dirty back alley and indeed a professional actress.
