Gaining fame and wealth from a successful acting career in the mainland China, Kevin Cheng (鄭嘉穎) has been too busy to film any TVB dramas lately. Riding on Kevin’s popularity to attract more viewers, it was reported that 6 months ago, TVB executive Catherine Tsang (曾勵珍) and producer Tommy Leung (梁家樹) wished Charmaine Sheh (佘詩曼) to collaborate with rumored ex-boyfriend, Kevin Cheng, in the wuxia series, Cold Mountain, Hidden Dragon <寒山潛龍> next year. Kevin was supposed to play the role of the assassin, Ximen, and have a relationship with Charmaine.

However, Kevin refused the offer immediately after finding out that he would be playing opposite with his old flame, Charmaine. He allegedly told Catherine, “Are you joking? How can I be in the drama? If you really want Charmaine to be in the drama, you can find another actor. I will not be in it!”

Due to Kevin’s refusal to be in the drama, the cast and the script had to be altered immediately. Catherine was reportedly furious with Kevin for his lack of cooperation, slimming down his chances of winning the TV King award this year.

When asked about his chance of winning Best Actor Award for his performance in Gloves Come Off < 拳王>, Kevin replied, “I will face it with a playful attitude, because I am busy filming drama in mainland for the next few months. Without anytime to win over the voters, my favorite to win will likely go to Wayne Lai (黎耀祥).”

Kevin’s absence at the TVB Anniversary Gala and his hectic filming schedule in mainland will likely lead to zero TVB dramas for next year.

Kenneth Ma (馬國明) is taking advantage of the situation, as he will be starring in Cold Mountain, Hidden Dragon instead. Regarding rumors of Kevin’s refusal to star in the drama, Kenneth responded, “I didn’t even know that the role originally belonged to Kevin. I only filmed the promotional clip for the drama, so it’s not certain that I will star in it. I only know for sure that we will start filming The Hippocratic Crush 2 < On Call 36 小時2 > next February.”

When asked about Kevin’s refusal to costar with her, Charmaine said she has not even received the script and was unaware of his refusal. As for returning to TVB to film a series, Charmaine said, “No definite plan has been made for 2013. The cast, the script and the filming date have not been decided yet.” When the plans are finalized, Charmaine hopes that it will be a good surprise for everyone.

      I don’t think so since they are still friends. Why follow your ex on weibo if u can’t stand them?

      If Kevin did reject this series, I think the main reasons might be he had another mainland series planned (maybe BBJX2) and/or he has always hated filming ancient costume series.

      I find it hard to believe he wouldn’t want to film w/ Charmaine since they are good acting partners but if he did, maybe he really dislikes the possibility of their rumors being blown up by the media again. Oh well, it’s a loss for us fans.

      Btw, the article says Kevin was absent at the anniversary gala but he did come back to hk just for it. So he still gives tvb face.

      Or the other reason is they are back together and Kevin want to keep it low profile this time. So, he doesn’t want to play a couple with her. :D

      If this article is true, then it seems like TVB picked Charmaine over Kevin. So how come Charmaine hasn’t received the script or been asked to film it?

      If it was originally Kevin’s role, he probably rejected it because he’s making big bucks in Mainland.

      If I were Niki, I would not take Kevin Cheng back. If a man has given you up once, it can happen again in future.

        I think Niki Chow still has some feeling of Kevin Cheng. It will not be good for her if she is an sentimental person.

      • lil flower replied to lil flower

        hmm.. I don’t know whether niki still have feelings toward Kevin or not but i know that niki did says if there is a good script she is willing to collaborate with Kevin! and so do Kevin. so i will be rather glad if they still do stand a chance filming together at least they aren’t in bad terms now. :)

        Login or Register before you can reply to lil flower
      • Josie replied to lil flower

        If niki still has feelings for Kevin, then that’s even more reason why she shouldn’t collaborate w/ him. It would be too easy for her to get hurt again. Niki should only give Kevin a second chance if he is serious about wanting her back. Don’t chase a guy that already dumped u once.

        it’s really niki choices to collaborate or not! :) but at least i’m happy that kevin turns down the drama with charmaine.

      and kevin knows he doesnt have much of a chance in winning the award again this year

    • Gar replied to lol

      Those are my exact sentiments. I really think Kevin could care less about filming for TVB. He’s making tons of money in Mainland as well as making a name for himself there.

    I prefer Moses Chan to be the lead actor
    with Chermaine Sheh. Not Kenneth Ma. Not
    matching at all. I don’t think Kevin interesting in winning the award as now he is enjoying the highest paid acting in IP MAN.

    Lol… it’s still far away from April’s Fool.

    Charmaine has been offered several TVB scripts and declined. If Dayo really agrees to film You’re Hired 2, then maybe she’ll accept.

    Her per series contract with TVB is expiring next year and no signs of renewing yet. She might for the sake of expressing gratitude, or not since she will be busy with her production studio.

    • june replied to sehseh

      You’re Hired 2 would be a smart choice, if writers continue with the wit and savvy, and perhaps do without the cheese.

      I think it’s also best she not choose tvb grand productions, with all the nonsense preach and pretentiousness.

      Something slick, a strong and non-convoluted romance plot, though not necessary a romantic drama through and through, a strong male lead, and better yet if it’s inspiring. In a non-pretentious manner.
      Probably too much wishful thinking on my part.

      Sometimes I wish she’ll go act in a Korean drama. I can so see her in one. And totally owning the show.

    “Kenneth Ma (馬國明) is taking advantage of the situation, as he will be starring in Cold Mountain, Hidden Dragon instead. “

    It is strange that the article made it sound like Kenneth is a second option for the series. It is true that the actors in the sale presentation won’t necessarily be in the actual series. But, if the producer has not thought of him before, I would they cast him in the sale presentation.

    • sandcherry replied to Kidd

      I don’t think Kenneth Ma would mind anyway. He is a very nice person who just wants to film good drama series. Besides, he will make more money if he films one more drama series. He said he would prefer to make more money than to get an award. He is a very realistic guy and does not care too much about fame and seniority.

      It’s quite normal for the actors to be different in the sales presentation and the actual drama. I never pay attention to the sales presentation clips unless they are from already finished series.

    Oh dear, another controversy re Kevin. What’s he up to really? I just can’t believe he does not want to work with Charmaine anymore, in fact, I thought he would have just jumped at the opportunity given him to do so. He should at least say something now. He’s always liked Wayne’s acting and has voted for him a number of times, for Sheren too.

    • sandcherry replied to P. Tan

      If Kevin Cheng is a good actor, he should know who has good acting in TVB.

    • june replied to P. Tan

      I don’t know.
      I really don’t think they should be in the same series, not if they’ll be a couple.
      They can be very smoldering during certain scenes, but do nothing for each others’ acting. Just my opinion.

      Also, the thought of them in a wuxia together…doesn’t sit right. Not anymore.

      However, I’m in if there involves la femme fatale Charmaine Sheh smoking a pipe, and a Kevin Cheng…something. Undercover cop or starving artist. But the likelihood of this happening is very slim, so I’ll just dream on.

      It’ll be interesting to see him opposite Sheren. She’ll probably eat him alive.

    Whatever it is, like he cares whether he wins an award in this year’s anniversary. He’s highly appreciated in mainland and that’s where he wants to fully focus on. He’s not scared of TVB’s wrath :P

    I bet it’s all publicity, and charmaine and Kevin WILL star together and this just encourages viewers to watch more for hidden signs and then viewership will increase because of made up tabloid fodder throughout the screening of whatever drama it is. LOL

    The powers that be should really stop trolling around. I think both parties know they can’t possibly act together anymore. Not and be unaffected by the HK buzz. The resulting performances would turn out halfassed and awkward as hell.

    Charmaine needs a STRONG male lead to lead her, or a fresh face for her to coax the best out of him. I totally loved her with Sammul back in the days, and more recently in When Heaven Burns with Stanley. Her chemistry worked with Matthew during FH2 as well, within the dynamics. Sadly, there aren’t many left at TVB at her calibre, without reverting back to Moses et Joe…

    omg, hang on! There’s Michael Tse! How can I forget him! hmm…but their vibes are too similar though…

    Kevin can continue his martial arts/8th Prince/LawBa niche…or maybe this time he’ll get an image change and become Frankie type – healer/scholar/fortuneteller extraordinaire. Kevin in a lab coat has been done already, so no to that.

    I think Kevin should found other fishes in the sea before he dates Sheh to see if he really likes her likes her…

    Nikki is a lost case already, move on.

    Kenneth, wonder how the commercial is…?? I always wonder why they do a commercial when sometime the actor isn’t really the person in the commercial either …??

    I cannot wait for BBJX2 ^O^

    she does need more age appropriate roles, agreed
    but age appropriate roles for her doesn’t really limit her choice of role types. Not just yet. She’s still got so much energy. But I don’t know about mother roles. Mother of young kids, sure, but not for adults. Unless as a stepmom.
    Which will be good to watch.
