Zheng Ge Ping and Tay Ying

It’s been a long time since Mediacorp has done a martial arts-themed drama series – the last show of this genre was Code of Honour in 2011, starring Elvin Ng, Rui En, Andie Chen, Zheng Ge Ping and Paige Chua.

Actor-turned director Ge Ping will be revisiting the genre for 2019’s mid-year blockbuster series, The Good Fight, which is slated to air in June. No word on whether he’ll be acting in this show, however, as he steps into the role of executive producer for the third time, following Close Your Eyes, a Toggle Originals series, and Ho Seh Boh (How Are You?), a dialect show.

From what we’ve seen so far, the hunkle, fitness enthusiast and former taekwondo instructor is very serious about getting his actors into tip-top shape for their fighting scenes. He personally took it upon himself to hold several training sessions with Paige and Rebecca Lim, both of whom will be acting in The Good Fight.

Both actresses—together with his daughter Tay Ying—were seen executing several kicks and punches during their combat training session held a week ago. Paige, who does yoga regularly, is no stranger to martial arts; she once learned a few Krav Maga (an Israeli form of martial arts) moves for a magazine shoot and appeared to be the steadiest fighter out of the trio during the practice session. And Tay Ying, who has been trained in taekwondo since young, performed roundhouse kicks effortlessly.

With production due to begin in a month’s time, the actresses still have time to shape up and improve their fighting physique before the cameras start rolling. If you can do martial arts – and are keen to act alongside Paige, Rebecca and Andie in this brand new Channel 8 drama series, an open casting call for martial arts performers across all martial arts disciplines will be held this Sunday.

Come dressed ready to fight and impress. Participants will be judged by EP Zheng Ge Ping and martial arts and casting professionals. The panel is on the lookout to for “a gem of an actor or actress” who can be the next action star.  

More details can be found below and on Channel 8’s Facebook page.

The Good Fight’s casting call:
Date: October 28, Sunday
Time: 10am to 5pm
Venue: Mediacorp
Requirements: Singaporeans and PR only; aged 16 to 40 years old; all races are welcome

The Good Fight airs Jun 3, 2019, 9pm on Channel 8.
