Filming is well underway for Ch8 blockbuster drama The Dream Makers 2, as cast members Jeanette Aw, Romeo Tan and Edwin Goh recently geared up for a series of action scenes.

As Romeo and Jeanette are celebrities in The Dream Makers 2, the dramatic device of “story within a story” is heavily employed in the plot – there are numerous scenes where they have to “shoot a drama” during filming.

In one of those scenes, Zhao Fei’er (Jeanette) had to jump off a four-storey tall building at the former Tanjong Pagar railway station. Having experienced various physically demanding shoots in the past, Jeanette is no stranger to the wire works. Although the actress does not have a fear of heights, trying to pull off the stunt while “fighting” in midair is no easy feat.

Besides Jeanette and Romeo, Edwin, who plays a stunt man in the TV station, was also involved in some fighting scenes as a “stunt double”. Unfortunately for Qi Yuwu, who graduated from Guangzhou Physical Education Institute, he could only watch from the sidelines and not show off his moves because of his role as a director (Jason Lam) in the drama.
