Experienced British actor John Simm plays a professor in White Dragon.
British Mystery TV Series Filmed at Ngong Ping 360
White Dragon, the British Independent TV mystery series, chose Ngong Ping as a setting for one of its episodes recently. Over 50 production crew members filmed at the Tung Chung Cable Car Terminal, inside a cable car and at Ngong Ping village all day on 14 November.
The story is about a professor, played by experienced British actor John Simm, whose wife has died in a suspicious traffic accident in Tai Po. Assisted by a local inspector played by Hong Kong actor Anthony Wong Chau Sang, Simm’s character comes to Hong Kong to investigate his wife’s death. The production crew filmed a scene where Simm’s character reflects on memories of his wife at Ngong Ping 360. Katie Leung, who played Harry Potter’s first girlfriend Cho Chang, acted in the same scene.
As the TV shooting was located in Hong Kong and involved local actor, it is worthwhile for the company to support their filming. The overseas audiences thus may have a glance at the beautiful scenery of Ngong Ping 360 and increase our overseas exposures and reputations.
