Him Law and Mandy Wong to Star in Drama With Liza Wang

TVB’s “Top Treasure,” Liza Wang (汪明荃) was often paired with young, upcoming talent to boost their star power. In 2005, Liza starred in one of her first comedies, War of In-Laws <我的野蠻奶奶>, successfully raising the popularity levels of Myolie Wu (胡杏兒) and Bosco Wong (黃宗澤). Liza’s was also credited in bringing the “Three Gods” Louis Yuen (阮兆祥), Johnson Lee (李思捷), and Wong Cho Lam (王祖藍) to greater prominence. Liza’s latest call of duty from TVB was apparently to raise the popularity of rising stars, Him Law (羅仲謙) and Mandy Wong (黃智雯), in new drama, Mother To Mother <媽不得媽媽>.

Since their breakout onscreen coupling in Suspects In Love <搜下留情>, Him Law and Mandy Wong, have been regarded as rising talent by TVB. The pair can be seen recently in hit Hong Kong drama, The Hippocratic Crush <On Call 36小時>. With the recent exodus of artists, TVB producers were left scrambling with few actors to work with and forced to deal with last minute cast changes. Raising Him and Mandy to first-line actors would offer more flexibility in casting choices.

Producer Poon Ka Tak’s upcoming romantic comedy, Mother To Mother, will feature Liza Wang and Gigi Wong (黃淑儀). Filming was scheduled to occur in March. Him will portray Liza’s son in the drama. Him promised, “I will make full preparations and be on time for filming. There is a certain degree of stress, but I will treat it as if taking a ‘driving test!'” Mandy thanked Producer Poon for being her talent scout and offering her prominent roles as early as Suspects In Love.

Last year, it was declared that Producer Poon would film a sequel to A Chip Off The Old Block <巴不得爸爸>, even announcing that the name of the sequel would be named, Mother To Mother. At the time, Mr. Poon had announced that the original cast would be featured in the sequel, but a significant amount of time has since elapsed. Thus, it was unclear as to how much of the original cast will be able to partake in Mother To Mother, as well as whether the new drama bore resemblance to earlier leaked details.

    Perhaps TVB was too scared of featuring the hotter couple, Tavia Yeung and Him Law, together so quickly in “Mother to Mother.” Thus Mandy has become his other best onscreen partner. :)

      I don’t think they’re the hotter couple. I would not use the word “hot” when describing Tavia but people are just curious of this unlikeliest pair

        I believe Jayne meant “hot” in the sense that they’ve been receiving a lot of attention from the press as of late.

        I do like this Him/Mandy pairing, though. They make a rather pleasant looking couple!

        i know gosh mandy looks way older than her age. him law always looks much younger next to her and tavia too. the only girl i see him good with is YOYO CHAN or some name like that. they are both very cute together.

      They should have tavia cameo as liza’s character in flashback scenes thereby making her in fact, Him Him’s mother.

    WHY IS TVB SO EAGERLY PROMOTING A WOMAN BEATER??? I find the public is so easy to forget and forgive…..people like Chris Brown and Hims Law are still hot in the industry !!!!

    • Vivien replied:

      because him him is hot and acting good and most potential young actor in TVB and he wasnt charged by law for woman beater only by theressa

        yeah those bruises didn’t mean anything theN??? It’s not as if she didn’t make this all so… SO APPALLING that TVB still want to use this guy after what he did…sure he is good looking… but so as all these wife and women beater and PSYCHOPATH …. geeezzzz

      • apple replied:

        and for acting.. I don’t find it that great… POOR TERESA… her career is definitely over.. makes me wonder why she didn’t press charges on him.. probably she knew she was going to get sue by FILMKO more if she kept going on ….

      • Vivien replied:

        That’s exagerated. Theresa invoke the fight first so she also share the fault not him him alone. besides him him’s job is acting and looking hot and not being a moral leader geez

      As long as txb see Him can make big profit to them, I dont think txb needs to care of what “minority” think of Him as woman beater. I’m not saying I support women beater, I hate them infact..I was just speaking from a profit making organisation view.

      Yeah, Tvb is desperate these days so many newbies to promote still they choose a woman beater.

      • Veejay replied:

        or maybe HIM him is 620 new taste of boytoy? 620 Probably got tired of having less masculine handsome men like Kevin and LF so that’s why she’s starting to collect mascular boytoy like him? not sure..

        manlier as in mature right?

        Him Him gives ppl that he’s a body builder.

        What I meant was maybe 620 changed her taste from mature and pretty men like LF and Kevin into a bodybuilder and young man.

        When Onion was lying on the couch, his arms were stretching out the shirt sleeves.

        I almost expect Him to have a Hulk moment where he gets angry and his muscles rip off his shirt.
        That might’ve been better than him punching out his pt’s son.

        Maybe his women threated Txb lol. 620’s taste seems to be the same for years. She still stays with KC after years and nothing seems to change it. EEG night proved so. Him Him can be new guy but won’t last long as long as KC is still there

        It is too obbious, no need me to say. How can 620 tains your Him Him? Most of guys get through her hands have a better image and more fans than before her involvement.

        If the series is merely about topless guys, I will give it a pass. I like them with clothes and want to leave their topless images to my imagination, not in real life :p. I’m scared of ruining the love in me like MM in MOL.

        but is Him signing something with TVB? I found it funny that TVB promotes an outsider to frstline earlier than their own bunch of newcomers such as benjamin Yuen, Matthew Ko and other newcomers. I’m not complaining because Him is easy on the eyes and his acting isn’t bad

      1) Him Law has positive onscreen presence. It makes people like him.
      2) His rumors with Tavia probably also helped. I mean, Tavia’s a huge upgrade from Theresa LOL.
      3) A lot of his celebrity friends support him, which makes it different from Chris Brown’s case. Chris Brown’s case, it’s obvious to what he did to Rihanna, but with Him Law, it’s double-sided.
