Leila Tong pretends to be a lawyer; hard to memorize lines/dialogue

Lately, Leila Tong is busy filming for TVB’s new series, ‘Bar Benders’, portraying a lawyer. Although she started out as a child star, and has been acting for some time but sees filming ‘Bar Benders’ as a big challenge in life because she never had to memorize lines that were long and complicated before. She doesn’t dare do it slow either, therefore would go straight home after work and start reading over the script, doing some ‘homework’.

Constantly making mistakes

Leila, while accepting our telephone interview earlier says, “This time it’s a lawyer character and there’s a lot of talking scenes done in court. Mistakes were made quite often and “NG’d? [retake basically] a lot of times. I was constantly saying sorry to the workers and other actors/actresses. I think after I’m finished filming this series, I wouldn’t be nervous about other scripts in the future and of course I could deal with those!?
