Behind the Scenes …

Q: Can you tell us what difficulties you have encountered while filming Fresh Off the boat? Are there any interesting or unforgettable memories? 

A: Scheduling is challenging, as finding a balance between filming, schooling, and other extracurricular actives can sometimes be tough. Another difficulty we have encountered is memorizing the lines. Luckily, we have a great acting coach who assists us on the side.

The moment when we were told that we got the roles is very unforgettable to us. Also, during the audition, we were already kind of connected since the chemistry among us was great. Even now, just hanging out and being around each other is memorable, especially because funny situations often happen on set. Going to Taiwan for filming was definitely another interesting memory. 

Q: 談談你們拍Fresh Off the Boat 辛苦的地方是什麼?有什麼好玩或難忘的經驗嗎 ?

 

A: 要在忙碌的拍攝日程、學校課業再加上額外的活動之中找平衡點,所以時間安排對我們來說會比較辛苦。還有就是背台詞,不過還好我們有很好的演戲指導會從旁協助我們。

當我們得知選角被選上,那個時候是非常難忘的。還有在試鏡過程中,我們互相都已經有了很好的交流,所以當我們三個在一起相處也都會製造很多好玩的回憶,尤其是在片場,常常會有好笑的事情發生。另外,前陣子去了台灣拍戲也很酷,非常有趣。

Q: Did you experience any culture shock during the trip for filming in Taiwan? 

A: We tried out lots of new foods like oyster egg (“I think it is pretty good,” Forrest recalled), stinky tofu, and snake blood shots, but specifically for Hudson, he had some crazy foods such as chicken feet, fried pig blood, duck liver, etc. “I still get nightmares about them,” said Hudson. Although we tried a couple of those foods before visiting Taiwan, most of them were still brand new experiences to us.  

 Q: Did you learn any new Chinese vocabulary/phrase?

A: We learned one Taiwanese phrase “jiǎ bà mǔe” (in Chinese it means “Have you eaten yet?”) from Ian. We actually did not learn many new phrases because all of us do speak some Mandarin. Most people in Taiwan speak Mandarin as well so we were still able to communicate with them a little bit with limited phrases.

 

Q: 聽說前陣子你們去了趟台灣拍戲。你在台灣當地有沒有受到一些文化衝擊?

A: 我們嘗試了很多新的食物像是臭豆腐、蚵仔煎 (Forrest回想起來說“我覺得還蠻好吃的”),還有蛇血!特別是Hudson,他吃了很多很另類的食物,從雞腳、炸豬血糕到鴨肝。“這些食物讓我到現在都還會做惡夢”Hudson笑著說。雖然有幾樣食物我們再去台灣之前就有吃過,但是大多數對我們來說還是一個全新的體驗。

 Q: 你們在台灣有沒有學到一些新的中文,可以跟我們分享嗎?

A: Ian有教我們兩個一句台語“呷飽袜”(國語的意思是你吃過了沒?)。其實我們在台灣沒有學太多新的詞,因為我們都會說一點國語。大部份的台灣人也都是說國語,所以雖然我們會的國語詞彙沒有很多,還是可以稍微跟他們溝通。

Q: As an Asian American, are there any plots in Fresh Off the Boat that you can relate to? 

A: There are many plots we can relate to since the screenwriters consider each of our identities when creating the plots. They slightly change the characters to fit us and our personalities. The ways in which our characters act, speak, respond, and the things that they like are very much like us. 

Q: 身為華裔美國人,你有沒有遇過跟劇情中類似的經驗?

A: 我們常常可以感覺到劇情跟現實生活相似的地方,因為Fresh Off the Boat的編劇會參考每個人的特質、個性去編寫我們的角色和劇情。比如說劇裡角色行為舉止、說話的方式都跟真實的我們很類似。
