Bernice Liu Suffers Foot Injury From Prop Trolley

Bernice Liu suffered an injury to her toe after a props trolley rolled over her foot and she was in so much pain that she cried uncontrollably. After treatment in the hospital, an X-ray fortunately showed no fractures and she insisted on continuing filming again yesterday with a bandaged foot, showing her commitment!

Filming on Monday evening for her series "The Entire City Dances", Bernice had an accident with a colleague who was pushing a trolley and this caused her toenail to split and pierce her skin. Her foot was also very bruised and swollen like a 'pigs foot'. As she was in so much pain, she hid behind the prop wall and cried so much before having the injury treated at the Tseung Kwan O Hospital and after having an X-ray, she was sent home to rest. Although the doctor advised her to rest for four days, Bernice still carried on with her work as she filmed on location yesterday.

Asked about how the accident happened, Bernice said: "At the time, the trolley hit two toes on my right foot and because I was wearing the open-toe dancing shoes, my nail split and it went into my flesh, so it was extremely painful. Fortunately there were no broken bones and the doctor gave me four days to recover, afraid that if I stand too much, the swelling will not go down." She says that the crew member did not do it intentionally, so she will not bear any grudges against him. In order to avoid delay to filming, Bernice still continued with her work and she wore a slipper with the word 'safe' written on it and she explained that this was a gift from her mother: "My mother wanted me to stay safe, so she bought a pair of slippers that says 'Safe coming and going' on them. 2006 went smoothly for me, I only suffered a cold. Small illnesses are better than big ones."

Co-star Steven Ma indicated that when the accident happened, all he saw was Bernice crying and when he went to comfort her, he just heard her say in English something about 'the cart' and he had to ask Kate Tsui to translate for him. He smiles: "I have given another of my firsts to Bernice as this was the first time I have massaged a girl's toe. I don't mind though because I just wanted her not to hurt so much."
