Some of you might have been quite puzzled with my recent tweets regarding knowing how my mom’s going to look like and being my mom. Well, the mystery is over, this is what it’s all about.

WHAT IS THIS?
This is the imaging for my second character in the 180-long drama that I have been filming since December last year. She plays a 56-year old woman who is the mother of my current character who is a lawyer. While she was a gorgeous prostitute when she was younger, her heyday didn’t last too long, and that sort of lifestyle wore her down. A woman who is destined to endure hardship surfaces in the neighbourhood as a skillful con artist and preys on the characters in the show.
HOW IS THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN MOTHER & DAUGHTER?
The lawyer that I play is someone who seeks to uphold justice, who believes that the world should exist only in right or wrong. Her mother is the epitome of the kind of person she is fighting to put away so the association with this woman who bore her as a child would inevitably be one of the rudest shocks she receives throughout the show. The relationship they have is not going to be very pretty.
HOW WAS THE IMAGING PROCESS?
Although it is not clearly obvious, I have a fat bodysuit underneath the clothes and padded buttocks. It’s actually quite hot to have the layers. I also have a wig, a scar, wrinkles, freckles, spots and new teeth. The teeth was custom made to fit my mouth and this was done at the dentist. It took us a handful of visits to get the mould and fit right.
IS IT TOUGH WEARING THE DENTURES?
It takes some getting used to. It’s not possible to eat or chew and speech is slightly hindered because the tongue is obstructed by the dentures, but it’s a good thing because it helps me slow down my speech and be more convincing as older people tend to speak much slower.
