Jesseca Liu And Jeremy Chan Want To Romance Each Other On Screen; She Says They Would Be “Bold”
Producers, are you reading this? The real-life couple star in new Mediacorp dramedy Crouching Tiger Hidden Ghost but do they play a reel-life couple?
Ghost-themed Mediacorp dramedy Crouching Tiger Hidden Ghost is not the first time celeb couple Jesseca Liu, 42, and Jeremy Chan, 39 are acting opposite each other on screen. They'd worked together on 2014 miniseries, Who Killed The Lead, and 2019 movie, When Ghost Meets Zombie.
But… in this new drama that’s currently showing on meWatch ─ Jess stars as Lin Xiao Fang, a spirit bound to an apartment building, while Jeremy plays Ma Da, a self-proclaimed psychic ─ they actually fall for each other.
Well, kind of.
In any case, this basically seems like the perfect setting for the married couple ─ they are celebrating their fourth wedding anniversary in July this year ─ to showcase their relationship on screen, right?
Unfortunately, as they let on during a phone interview with 8days.sg, there aren't really any romantic scenes between them in the show.
“Our characters aren’t exactly a couple lah. After all [I’m a] ghost, while [Jeremy’s] human. There are just a little romance-related scenes, but that’s about it,” says Jesseca.
