Dayo Wong and Dodo Cheng to Star in TVB Drama
Dayo Wong (黃子華) and Carol “Dodo” Cheng (鄭裕玲) may be reunited in a TVB drama next year! Dayo has confirmed that he will star in the project in 2013, after he completes his current stand-up comedy show.
The “Diamond Duo’s” War of the Genders <男親女愛> tickled audiences with its outrageous humor, making it a memorable classic twelve years after its initial release. The drama had peaked at 49 points and won critical and mass praise. War of the Genders producer Tsui Ching Hong (徐正康) has been invited to return to TVB, in which he hoped to fulfill audiences’ wishes to see Dayo and Dodo collaborate together once again.
Producer Tsui stated that he is currently persuading Dodo Cheng to act in the drama. “Dodo did not reject the idea. She only said it depends on the character and the script. Although I am putting myself before a big challenge, I hope it will turn into reality!”
Dayo Wong is currently brainstorming for ideas regarding his character in the upcoming drama. He has maintained in contact with Dodo Cheng since War of the Genders and the friends have no problems working together once again.
To deal with increased local television station competition, TVB has been eager to pull back the company’s former superstars to draw audiences. Andy Lau (劉德華) has been confirmed to star in an upcoming drama and Chow Yun Fat (周潤發) will consider filming opportunities as well. Esther Kwan (關詠荷) and Bobby Au Yeung (歐陽震) will also star in an upcoming love tragedy.
Jayne: It’s great to hear that Dayo Wong will be staging a comeback! Dodo Cheng has a wonderful timing for comedy… I hope they find an equally stellar supporting cast, as the supporting actors in War of the Genders left room for improvement.
