Drug Scandal May Cost Candy Chang Meaty Roles

By on December 5, 2012

Drug Scandal May Cost Candy Chang Meaty Roles thumbnail

In late November, Candy Chang (張慧雯), of The Hippocratic Crush < On Call 36小時> fame, was arrested for drug possession. Police stopped the car she was in when she and a male companion were found speeding along the San Tin Highway. After a search, the police found 13 bags of marijuana in the boot of the car.

Currently, Candy is on bail pending further investigations and will have to report back to the police station on December 28. Previously given a role in TVB drama, Master Understood <師父‧明白了>, she has to be removed from the cast because of her suspension in TVB now.

After a meeting with The Hippocratic Crush executive producer, Poon Ka Tak (潘嘉德) yesterday, there were speculations that Candy may be taken out of the sequel, in which she has a big role.

Too Disturbed and Confused

Accompanied by TVB Senior Executive, Virginia Lok (樂易玲), Candy attended a press conference to clarify herself. She expressed that she felt disturbed and nervous over this matter. She vehemently denied that the marijuana found in the car belonged to her.

“I did not come into contact with the drugs. Because the case is still under investigation, I cannot share too much. However, this incident has taught me to be wiser, to be careful of whom I befriend.” Candy added that the male suspect was a platonic friend she got to know 2 to 3 weeks ago. However, on the night she was stopped by the police, she claimed that the man was just a driver, who was introduced by a friend, to take her home.  It appears that Candy’s current statement did not match her previous explanation.

End of Acting Career?

Candy is hopeful that this drug scandal is not going to affect her career as an actress. When asked if she is still going to be part of the cast of The Hippocratic Crush 2, she said, “I am not sure. I just hope everyone can give me support and advice.”

Virginia Lok, who earlier stood by Candy’s innocence, clarified, “Candy has a large role in The Hippocratic Crush 2, but we will only begin filming next year so decision will only be made after we hear about the development of the case.”

    2. Littlec says:

      Really hope she can be in THC 2!

    3. hie says:

      Unlucky girl!

    4. Daisy says:

      She might be able to revive her career!
      Amigo beat his girlfriend, and now is slowly getting good jobs again
      There was actually evidence of Him beating Theresa but for some reason it didn’t effect him..
      Gillian had that sex scandal with Edison but career is still going on strong
      Maggie Wu also had a sex scandal but this event had made her more famous.

      Of Candy ends up being acquitted she has a strong chance of making a comeback

    5. christy says:

      this time its drug related, those were kind of slightly different …
      Shes screwed man.

      • Catie says:

        So what you are saying is that violence and sex scandals are better off than drugs? Yes, being involved in certain drugs by any person is considered illegal and breaking the law, but hey, that doesnt make violence or involved in sex scandals any better or worse.

        Also, the full details of the case aren’t even released yet, saying she’s screwed imo is exaggerating.

    6. Hannah says:

      How big was her role going to be? There are Tavia and Mandy, and with the addition of Louisa So and Eliza Sam, Candy’s role is probably not that big. Also, wasn’t there a rumor that Jing Jing will die in the sequel to make way for Eliza as Him’s new love interest? Hmm

      • Little fishy says:

        -.- really? Wonder this rumour come in before or after the scandal :p? Another case of eliza down our throat -.-?

        • Hannah says:

          It was before. Eliza is currently TVB’s favorite. We’ll be seeing her for a while. I think she’s the most promoted artist right now, even more than Christine Kuo and Rebecca Zhu.

        • Linnh says:

          This rumour is so screwed up, they keep Mandy and Benjamin, TY and Kenneth but ruin Him and Candy just to promote Eliza? Well i shouldn’t be so surprise if it happends, something must be ruin anyways, because TVB is just that way.

      • 939393 says:

        It was stated that Candy will have a major supporting role, i guess right on Mandy’s back. and URGH, killing of Candy to make way for an untalented and annoying actress? -.-

    7. Catie says:

      If it didn’t affect her career, it certainly has more or less affected her image. Hope she can get through this soon and move on. IMO, she has potential as a good actress, hope her opportunities in receiving roles don’t come to a hault.

    8. Nat says:

      Hope Candy can be given a second chance! I liked her in Hip Crush. I’m excited to see the addition of Eliza Sam in the series.

    9. Uni says:

      If she is going to star in HC2 PLEASE get rid of those ugly glasses. She wasn’t even famous to begin with so it should be easy to revive her “career”

    10. game says:

      she can always get other jobs

    11. truth says:

      she’s working for a big company, no? how come they didn’t fire her?
