TVB held the costume fitting for its new drama, Cousin, You Are Good <老表，你好嘢>, yesterday. The drama features the refreshing pairing of Roger Kwok (郭晉安) and former ATV actress, Joey Meng (萬綺雯). In addition, Wong Cho Lam (王祖藍) has been promoted to scriptwriter for the new comedy!
After successfully recruiting ATV’s former #1 Sister, Alice Chan (陳煒), TVB successfully persuaded Joey Meng to act in Cousin, You Are Good. ATV drama, My Date With a Vampire <我和殭屍有個約會>, was a cult classic and shot Joey to popularity. Although Roger Kwok will be working with Joey Meng for the first time, he indicated that he had watched her performance in My Date With a Vampire. Joey said that she watched Roger in Queens of Diamonds and Hearts <東西宮略>.
Joey complimented TVB City for its large size and amenities, likening it to an elite university campus. As a newcomer at TVB, Joey said, “Currently, I am most familiar with the security guards because I frequently ask for directions.”
Wong Cho Lam Promoted to Scriptwriter
Cousin, You Are Good will be Wong Cho Lam’s first TVB scriptwriting project. In February, it was revealed that Wong Cho Lam had approached the TVB Production Department with his idea for the story, which was partially based on his real life experience. Wong Cho Lam revealed that the new drama will draw upon the increasing migration of mainland Chinese in Hong Kong. TVB was delighted with the idea, thus allowed Wong Cho Lam the chance to demonstrate his writing skills.
By transcending his acting duties and crossing over to scriptwriting duties, Wong Cho Lam came under fire earlier. An anonymous TVB insider criticized Wong Cho Lam in lacking the proper qualifications to take on the important scriptwriting duties.
Wong Kwong Leung (黃光亮) and Wong Cho Lam will portray father and son in Cousin, You Are Good. Due to the actors’ physical resemblance to each other, fans mistook them to be truly father and son in real life. Wong Kwong Leung said, “We do not look like each other at all! I do not understand why such rumors surfaced!”
Wong Kwong Leung teased Wong Cho Lam, “Did you go through puberty yet? If you were taller, then you will look like me. Your current height is like Mimi Chu (朱咪咪)!”
Whitney Hui to Star in First TVB Role
2011 Miss Hong Kong First Runner-up, Whitney Hui (許亦妮), will appear in her first TVB drama in Cousin, You Are Good. She admitted that she was nervous about her first acting role. In the series, Whitney will be a third party in Louis Cheung (張繼聰) and Ivana Wong’s (王宛之) relationship, but was not concerned that the audience will scold her. Whitney said, “This often happens in real life.” Asked whether she had personally experienced a third party involvement in a relationship, Whitney said simply, “If you are compatible, you stay together. If you are incompatible, then you break up!”
Cousin, You Are Good is a TVB comedy produced by Wong Wai Sing (黃偉聲). The series also stars Mimi Chu, Helen Law (羅蘭) and Wu Fung (胡楓) .
