Favorite TVB onscreen couple, Esther Kwan (關詠荷) and Bobby Au Yeung (歐陽震華), will collaborate to film new TVB drama, Love Reverses Three Lifetimes of Fate <情逆三世緣>. Taking care of her young daughter, Esther has not acted in a TV series for many years. Esther said, “I am back filming TVB series because of Bobby. I know he will take care of me and will not allow me to work too hard!”
Esther and Bobby have not worked together for a number of years. Yesterday, they were present at a costume fitting along with other cast members, Ben Wong (黃智賢 ) and JJ Jia (賈曉晨), for the sales presentation of the new drama. Love Reverses Three Lifetimes of Fate is a love story that spans a thousand years, and it will begin during the Song Dynasty and continue to the 1950s, 1960s, and the present day.
Bobby joked, “After hearing the producer’s idea for the sales presentation, I felt so old.” Esther also joked, “Bobby has to take care of me. Bobby is already is his fifties; he cannot suffer too.” The cast will be filming on location at Foshan, China.
Bobby Convinced Esther to Film Again
Esther admitted that her decision to return to TVB was largely due to Bobby’s request. Esther said, “Bobby is a good partner. The producer and scriptwriter told me once I was interested and agreed on the filming date, they will write the story. The script was practically written exclusively for Bobby and me.”
Will Hire Nanny for Daughter
Esther will hire a nanny to take care of her daughter once the filming begins. Esther’s daughter is excited about Esther’s return to work. ” My daughter said that since I will not be around, there will not be anyone always telling her to do her homework.” Since her daughter is older now, she feels secure even without Esther presence at all times.
As to whether she will attend the upcoming Golden Horse Film Awards with her husband, Nick Cheung (張家輝), Esther said her attendance will be unlikely. It will also depend on the circumstance for the local awards.
Bobby as Justice Bao
For the scenes taking place in the ancient era in Love Reverses Three Lifetimes of Fate, Bobby will play the legendary Justice Bao. Bobby joked, ” They told me I need to use a fake beard. The producer said that according to legend, Justice Bao originally did not have a brown-colored face, but it turned brown due to poisoning. I wonder if he ate dark soy sauce chicken.”
When asked whether he is worried if the production crew was fairly inexperienced, Bobby said, “There is no point worrying. I decided to be an actor; I have to honor my contract and I owe TVB 50 episodes, so I will try to pay them off first. I don’t want to owe anyone.” Bobby also mentioned he will star in Tommy Leung ‘s (梁材遠) new series in the beginning of next year.
