Flora Chan Ousted From “Triumph in the Skies 2″

By on July 7, 2012

Flora Chan (陳慧珊) was eager to increase her workload after her husband, Mike Chung (鍾家鴻), filed for personal bankruptcy in February. Although Flora said that she will be filming for TVB this year, it was rumored that Flora had offended Tommy Leung (梁家樹) by refusing a custom-tailored role in Silver Spoon, Sterling Shackles <名媛望族>. Flora may have fallen out of favor with TVB and will no longer appear in Triumph in the Skies 2 <衝上雲霄2>!

At a Neutrogena promotional event in February, Flora expressed her intent to film for TVB again. When asked whether she will appear in Triumph in the Skies 2, Flora said, “We will see how things turn out. I still have an outstanding filming contract with TVB. I will definitely film for TVB this year, but I am not sure which drama it will be.”

Flora Chan Blacklisted by TVB?

Prior to Mike Chung filing for bankruptcy, he had approached TVB that Flora still had an outstanding contract to film 2 dramas with the company. Tommy Leung created a custom role for Flora, who was asked to portray Damien Lau’s (劉松仁) second wife in Silver Spoon, Sterling Shackles. The drama was increased from 30 to 40 episodes due to plans to cast Flora.

Unfortunately, Flora refused to film Silver Spoon, Sterling Shackles at the last minute. Since Tommy Leung had gone through extreme pains to revise the script especially to focus on her character, he was angered by Flora’s sudden change of mind. Idy Chan  (陳玉蓮) was asked to replace Flora’s role instead.

It was reported that Tommy Leung never forgave Flora Chan after her refusal to film Silver Spoon, Sterling Shackles. When pre-production planning for TVB heavyweight drama, Triumph in the Skies 2, started earlier this year, Mr. Leung decided to not cast Flora in the drama.

An insider stated, “Mike Chung indicated to TVB that Flora was very busy. But she will set aside priority for Triumph in the Skies 2. Afterward, rumors quickly spread that Flora will appear in Triumph in the Skies 2. But Tommy Leung never intended to cast her! Flora is already troublesome, but her husband is out of control!”

TVB executive, Virginia Lok (樂易玲), was asked to clarify whether Flora will appear in Triumph in the Skies 2. Ms. Lok said, “Flora was never included in the cast list, even at the beginning of the project.” When asked if Flora will film for TVB at the end of the year, Ms. Lok said, “Not right now.  From now until the beginning of next year, we already marked the artists who will be appearing in the dramas. Flora Chan is not on the list!”

Regarding rumors that Flora had offended Tommy Leung, Ms. Lok said, “It is because there has not been a suitable role yet!”

Jayne: It appeared as if Flora may have had a disagreement with TVB, based on Ms. Lok’s response. “Triumph in the Skies 2″ is getting crowded and no doubt the story will focus more on Myolie Wu anyway.

    1. sandcherry says:

      Yeah, I heard that Flora’s husband, Mike Chung, made a lot of noises in every drama series that Floria was part of the cast. It had annoyed all the top producers.

    2. misssy says:

      So which is it? Wasn’t there a personal interview that she did not too long ago stating she was taking a break and going back to school and now it’s she’s still interested in drama?

      • anoninhk says:

        that’s what i read too. she is or will be pursuing a master of education degree at hku so that when she returns to the states later on, she can be a teacher. anyway, no offence to flora fans but i would have preferred idy chan to flora in SSSS anyway, and TITS2 can do with or without flora’s character really (it was pretty much finished in the first part).

        • sandcherry says:

          “I would have preferred Idy Chan to Flora in SSSS anyway” ……. Agree + 1. Idy Chan is prettier than Flora Chan.

          Flora is not pretty at all, and she is getting quite old in her last TVB drama series.

        • hello says:

          but i would have preferred Flora over Myolie in TITS2 anytime…

          too sad Flora is ignored by TVB… wish she can cancel the contract and go with the CTI….

        • vivien says:

          Myolie is already looking old recently, but Flora is older.

        • hello says:

          its not abt looking old or haggard, its who got better acting skills.. and haven’t seen Flora in a series for a long time…

        • vivien says:

          Flora is better but both Flora and Myolie aren’t that great. They’re not up to Esther, Marianne, Ada level.

        • Fox says:

          If we are talking about TITS the continued storyline then I perfer Myolie’s Zoe over Flora’s Belle.

        • fiona says:

          belle was an annoying role. I think not having her doesn’t hurt the series since the entire cast already huge and strong

        • fiona says:

          current cast of triumph by confirmation order:
          Ron Ng,
          Fala Chen,
          Francis Ng,
          Myolie Wu,
          Kenneth Ma,
          Rebecca Zhu,
          Julian Cheung,
          Elena Kong,
          Kelly Fu,
          Him Law,
          Toby Leung

        • a-pop says:

          So far, I excited to watch Julian, KM,Ron and Fala. The rest of the cast also not bad.

        • fiona says:

          TVB killed Zoe and make Myolie a new role and give Fala both Francis and Chilam. Wonder if TVB isn’t pleased with Myolie working a lot in mainland.

    3. vivien says:

      It’s obvious TVB will focus on award racer Myolie.

    4. vivien says:

      Idy Chan’s part in SSSS might be just lead in name LOL. TVB focus in TY because some behind the scene staff said TY has more scenes than others LOL. That’s why some speculate that Fala left because her role isn’t as important.

    5. llwy12 says:

      Um, this article is not accurate…Flora Chan did an exclusive interview with Mingpao a few weeks back where she said she was going back to school and so won’t be acting for at least 2 years (if not more)…also, she stated in the interview that she already notified TVB and they know about her plans to return to school! Her interview was actually quite detailed and she outlined exactly the reasoning behind her decision.

      I guess the reporter who wrote this article doesn’t read Mingpao…LOL!

      Here’s the link to the translated article:

    6. Fox says:

      She is following her master in HKU. But maybe they want to.make some free promotions to TITS2.

    7. Funn Lim says:

      Why she wants to be in an overcrowded series instead of one that will focus on her is beyond my understanding. Bad career choice or she knew Silver Spoon, Sterling Shackles has a terrible script?

    8. fiona says:

      Shocking! Fala gets both Francis Ng and Chilam in Triumph! Myolie gets Ron! Whatis this?

      Zoe died and Myolie will be a new role
      Myolie pair with Ron
      Fala has a triangle with Francis and Chilam

      【消息】 #衝上雲霄II# 兩位女主角的感情線—— @胡杏兒 :分飾ZOE和全新人物兩個角色,ZOE去世,全新角色為維修員,不善與人溝通,與 @Ron吳卓羲 有感情線, @唐亦琛SAM 對其有亡妻情結。

      • fiona says:

        Unless Ron is the first male lead which which I doubt Francis and Chilam can settle for second and third male leads, this means Fala is leading over Myolie. Unbelievable!

        • fiona says:

          Myolie’s role is fresh and interesting however. An introvert technician.

          This still doesn’t mean Fala can easily rig herself to take over the female lead position!

        • Hannah says:

          Do share how Fala rigged herself to take over.

          You’re just going around expressing your dissatisfactions.

        • Wtf says:

          Not fala rig it, her rich bf rig it!

          We all know fala quit ssss cos she don’t like to be 2nd to tavia!

        • Veejay says:

          MAYBE tvb is promoting Fala as the next tv queen. who knows? So audience can have other choice rather than sticking to one tv queen.

      • vivien says:

        ROFL Fala show her fangs! Yikes that means one of Chilam or Francis will end up alone!

      • pandamao says:

        If this is true, I can understand exactly what is happening ..

        both Chilam and Francis will not be involved enough to develop a well thought out story to take the lead therefore chilam and francis are big stars with supporting roles. Instead of giving Myolie that part in TITS2 and also over complicate things by assigning her a part time male here and a part time male there, they just rewrote her whole character.

        to me, this makes sense. it’s by no way a demotion to Myolie Wu or a promotion to Fala Chan. the situation was just not in TVB offer.

        TVB only confirmed Francis and Chilam are part of the cast but never how much of a role.

        I’m definitely bummed out though.

        • vivien says:

          It will suck if Francis and Chilam are big names with supporting roles! I hope not!

        • Hannah says:

          This makes sense. Perhaps, Francis and Chilam are the main in “names.” The producer did say Ron will have a big role…

        • lol says:

          The producer did say Ron will have a big role…

          If this is the case, Myolie will still be the lead? I wish so, but it will be awkward to have Sam become less important than Ron.

        • advo says:

          So both Francis and Chilam are just token characters to inject some A-list publicity? Disappointing.

      • lol says:

        What a disappointment

        • lol says:

          won’t it be awkward for Francis to have his brother’s love interest looking like his dead girlfriend.

          I still can’t accept that TVB can wipe off Zoe when Myolie is still around to continue

        • nemesis says:

          also awkward for Issac to date someone looking like his brother’s dead girlfriend. I already pity Myolie’s new role, people only care abt her cos she looks the same as their dead friend.

        • lol says:

          then this will be an excuse to create a brotherly feud between Francis and Ron

        • Hannah says:

          About Issac and Zoe, I thought there was somewhat of a relationship between them in the first part. More so from Ron’s character. So, perhaps, it will be developed in the sequel.

        • pandamao says:

          @hannah –

          I agree on the Isaac and Zoe relationship. In the original org chart, it showed Isaac with a crush on Zoe but it seem like that story line was removed.

          There’s probably going to be some flashback scenes of Isaac liking Zoe which fuels the relationship between the two in the sequel.

    9. kevin says:

      i think tvb is pairing ron with myolie to tell his fans that ron has never been demoted

      • vivien says:

        poor Ron. Those crazy fans are at fault too because they everyday keep saying TVB demote Ron for Ruco. Jeez

    10. Jonnie says:

      Hey there… Does anyone know if there are any TVB tours happening??

    11. P. Tan says:

      Leading actors should, of course, take up leading roles. I don’t think I’ve come across them in secondary roles. It certainly would create great disappointment if that happens.

    12. Jenny Mok says:

      80 HKD per episode for Francis and Chilam, I’m sure there will be a twist to the story. If its to follow the first part, a twist of fate then it does surprise me that the story will focus on Fala Chan’s character. It would be hard to write the sequel to have Isaac’s character supercede Sam’s character based on the first part. So to have Ron take up first lead spot, would be hard if he returns as Issac.

    13. Jenny Mok says:

      I meant 80k HKD

    14. Mad says:

      This is a waste of space. It wasn’t that good the first time no need for a part 2. Sheesh TVB really doesn’t know which sequels to be producing. If they had half a brain this wouldn’t be one of them.
