Will this happen? Real pilot as actor and the next airline based series may have all real people from the industry as actors?
Not a pretty sight in the airline industry
International borders are mostly closed. Everyone is afraid of the potential of COVID-19 being spread from outside the country into the country. Airlines are not flying. That’s a huge issue for everyone who’s working in the airline industry. Earlier article here: Now everyone cannot fly. That’s a serious issue. I have read how some pilots who lost their jobs are now venturing into the F&B industry here in Malaysia.
Well, in Hong Kong, the airline staffs have been given a chance to join TVB and become an actor instead.
Article in thestar.com.my Hong Kong broadcaster TVB has recently held an audition which was live streamed on Youtube on Dec 7 and this audition is exclusively for those from the airline industry. In that episode, four male and three female showed their potential in front of a panel of celebrity judges.
These prospective actors were grilled on their motivations to join the showbiz scene as well as their personal lives. According to 8 Days, the preliminary auditions, held a month ago, drew some 100 hopefuls. The grand prize winner will also be walking away with with HK$100,000 (RM52,470) besides acting opportunities. Do read the full article here: Article in thestar.com.my
Future airline based TVB series
Remember that famous series, “Triumph of the Skies,” (click to read more) where actors became pilots and stewardesses? Well, in the future, the marketing and publicity for a new series may be touting the fact that all the main actors in that new airline series will be real pilots and stewardesses. These actors may even be telling the director at the time that what he asked of them does not happen in real life! Haha.
Change is essential
In life, changes are always essential. If the airline industry did not work out well, perhaps showbiz may be that new spark instead. All the best yeah dear people from the airline industry. One thing is for sure though. As soon as international borders are open, get ready for revenge travelling. It will be a V-shaped recovery and at that time, many of these airline people in other industries may resume their career in the airline industry.
