Maria Lai Chi San's second season of TELLING MARIA will air next week. Yesterday Chi San attended the press conference at Television City. She revealed that this time guests will include Donnie Yen Chi Tan, Harwick Lau Hoi Wai, Ng Man Tat, Patrick Tse Yin, Shawn Yue Man Lok and Sammo Hung Kam Bo. This time the lead actors' age range was very wide, from the Cantonese film era Best Actor Tse Yin to the younger generation like Yue Man Lok and Lau Hoi Wai. This time she still asked the guests to tell her a secret that they have never told anyone.
The first episode's guest was Yen Chi Tan, originally Chi San and Chi Tan were training class classmates. Did Chi Tan court her then? She said that at the time she already had a boyfriend so Chi Tan did not have a chance. She also revealed that among all the guests, the most unexpected was her making Yue Man Lok cry. She has never seen him cry. At the time she felt very guilty and did not know how to comfort him. She did not know how to react at all. Chi San also thanked Ng Man Tat for appearing on the program during his recovery period. She felt that he was like a teacher, with his own acting principles. Now many people are following his lead.
Often saying that he wanted to check reporters into the wall, Sei Gor talked about everything with Chi San. Nicholas Tse Ting Fung also helped with the shoot. Would she make a second season of TELLING MARIA 2? She said that would be very difficult because the first season already had 30 episodes. She has almost exhausted all the possible guests. Instead she might keep working with actors. The most difficult was scheduling. Originally she really wanted to visit Big Brother Jackie Chan, but they could not find the right time. Big Brother promised to come for season 3. Simon Yam Tat Wa and Stephen Chow Sing Chi were both very busy and could not make time either.
