Wouldn’t Fiona have looked in a ‘60s go-go get-up? While we’re left to ponder the “What It Might’ve Been”, the Together cast are left to rue the controversial star’s absence.
Jeanette Aw: “I just found out, and I’m shocked. I didn’t hear her say anything about it at all. I was really looking forward to acting with her again after The Champions in 2004.”
Dai Yang Tian: “I know she had a few issues about portraying the character. It’s a real waste- it could’ve been a good opportunity for people to see that she’s got more than just a good figure.”
Elvin Ng: “I only remember her not being very sure about the role cos it’s not a very likeable one. But I’m sure Fiona has her reasons.”
Zhang Zhenhuan: “I knew something was wrong when I didn’t see her in the make-up unit this morning. We had a lot of scenes together, and I was really looking forward to acting with her.”
Kola Zhou: “When I read the script, I thought it was very suitable for her. I just can’t imagine anyone else playing the role.”
