Charmaine Sheh's series "Maiden's Vow" started with good ratings, averaging at 34 points, but last week, the viewer numbers fell, leaving everyone a little worried because as show's progress, the ratings normally go up and it is rare to see them fall in this way. However, Charmaine responded in an interview at Metro Radio yesterday saying that she was not too worried about the drop in ratings: "Last week all the ratings fell across the whole spectrum and not only 'Maiden's Vow' fell. I believe this is because of the start of the racing season, hopefully it will climb up again soon."

Charmaine will begin filming for the TVB and CCTV 60-episode joint epic production "Changing Times", for which a grand press conference will be held today (Thursday). She will be filming for eight months on this series that will have location filming in Canada, Beijing and Ningbo. Other cast members include Jessica Hsuan, Myolie Wu, Ron Ng, Michael Miu and Raymond Lam. In the show, she will play a pair of arguing lovers with Raymond. Asked if she will have some lines in Mandarin, she says she does not know and the script team are still in discussion. She says: "I am worried that people may not accept me speaking in Mandarin, but if I really have to do this, then I will be asking an expert to coach me."

Below is Ray's character information which I have translated from Fung Forever. If reposted my translation, please give due credit. If you have the time to copy and paste the article, surely it won't hurt to take a few more seconds to credit the rightful owner. Thanks!

Ray's character decription:
From 26 to 40 years old. In the beginning, he was arrogant and proud. Later, he met many setbacks and gradually matures.

The story begins with Ray just returning from overseas. He is a proud person and his family owns a huge enterprise. His father is Damien Lau while his mother is Wong Shuk Yi.

At earlier stage, Ray was arrogant because he is very good at doing business and because of this there was a period where his family business flourished. This made him a little proud. However, his family bankrupted and he met many setbacks. He has to start from bottom again, and his character gradually matures. Along the way, he met with a lot of people who helped him.

Ray said that he is working hard to keep his hair long because he came back from overseas. He also have to speak Mandarin and he will have many scenes with mainland casts. In addition, he mentioned that this role was a very long and challenging role, but he will work hard on it.
