It was by no means a walk in the park: veteran artiste Bryan Wong had to strip down to his “tighty whities” in public last Saturday to film a crucial love declaration scene for his character in upcoming Channel 8 drama Hand in Hand.

With the National Day Parade rehearsals happening in the vicinity, the area was more packed than usual and the actor’s almost-naked streak caught the attention of many curious onlookers – both locals and tourists alike.

“There was a stark increase in the number of extras we had on set!” chuckled Bryan, who shared in a phone interview with Toggle that he had spent three months preparing for this scene by working out at the gym in the morning and at night. And his efforts in the gym clearly paid off.

The Hand in Hand actor was first seen wearing a spaghetti-strap floral dress which he eventually had to take off to reveal his buffed and tanned body, wearing nothing but a black pair of shorts – with a love note to his onscreen girlfriend (played by Sora Ma) emblazoned on it.

Said pair of black shorts was eventually peeled off, too, leaving Bryan almost naked in a pair of super mini FBT running shorts, as he took a run in the Merlion Park with his onscreen lady love in hand. Judging by the photos, it was no mean feat for the actor who, thankfully, had a white bathrobe on hand to shield his modesty during the jog. Phew.

Bryan shared that he went on a strictly no rice and no carbs diet one month ago and had to hit the gym despite his hunger pangs. He also did not drink water two days before the shoot and could only moisten his lips by dabbing water on it. “It was unbearable to watch others eating,” he lamented, “It was an arduous process [to bulk up] but definitely worth it.

Bryan shared that he took the necessary preventive measures to avoid any indecent exposures in public. “I’m embarrassed to share what I did, but the moment the director yelled ‘Cut!’ I put on my bathrobe immediately.”

It was a good thing he didn’t have as many NG (not good) takes and the scene wrapped after a three-hour shoot on site. Bryan added that he went on an eating rampage after the shoot and even had breakfast twice this morning.
