Although Tavia Yeung (楊怡) and Him Law (羅仲謙) were caught spending time together numerous times by the paparazzi, the couple never directly admitted their relationship publicly. When asked if they were really dating, both Tavia and Him would unanimously reply, “Let nature take its course.”
Controversial Scenes in “Silver Spoon, Sterling Shackles”
Tavia is currently seen in TVB’s anniversary drama, Silver Spoon, Sterling Shackles <名媛望族>.The period drama, which documents the lives of a privileged family living in 1930s Hong Kong, stars Damian Lau (劉松仁) as the patriarch of the Chung family, while Tavia, at thirty years his junior, stars as Damian’s fourth wife. Damian shares numerous intimate scenes with his wives in the drama, and among them was his lip-biting make-out scene with Tavia, which aired several weeks ago. The intense scene turned Tavia into the biggest talk of the town immediately after its broadcast.
“I expected the scene to get a huge response,” said Tavia, who is known for portraying intelligent and obedient roles onscreen. “However, I don’t think that the audience should stereotype the actors.” Tavia explained that the main reason for the lip-biting scene was to show how much she loved Damian. “If we fast forward to modern day, I’m sure that many couples would also react in a similar way.”
Tavia laughed, “When it comes to intense, Elena Kong (江美儀) had even more intense scenes!”
Regarding the rumor that the scene was suggested by Damian himself, Tavia defended, “That scene had always been part of the script. Before we filmed it, the scriptwriters gathered the Chung family together to discuss how to make the scene as relatable as possible.”
Tavia is Him’s Biggest Supporter
Would Tavia be able to accept a much older man as her husband like her character in the drama? Tavia expressed, “First of all, I have never had someone much older than myself to pursue me. Because I never had that experience, I don’t know if I will oppose it.” Tavia then added with a chuckle, “Maybe it’s because many men are able to take good care of their looks, so they look much younger than their age!”
But Tavia does not need to meet her own Damian Lau. She already has her Him Law! Tavia met Him, who is five years younger, on the set of The Hippocratic Crush <On Call 36小時> last year. Their relationship grew from close colleagues to extremely close friends. Asked if Tavia ever plans to make her relationship public, Tavia suggestively replied, “Let nature take its course. It doesn’t need to be obvious.”
With Him’s good looks and body, he is subjected to numerous negative rumors. Often, Him is accused for being too flirtatious and overly friendly with his colleagues, which often causes him to send the wrong message to his female colleagues.
According to Tavia, Him is not like what the media claims at all. Tavia supported Him and said, “I also thought he was like that when I first met him, but after a few months of working together, I realized that he is actually very honest and responsible. He is a good person.”
Last year, Him was accused for beating his ex-girlfriend, Theresa Fu (傅穎). At the same time, Him reportedly cheated on Theresa multiple times while they were still dating. With such a negative reputation, would Him drag down Tavia’s career? “Everyone has a past,” said Tavia. “As a third person, I am not entitled to criticize someone else’s relationship problems. Every family will go through their own problems. I never ask; as for the other person, he or she has no need to explain. If he wants to talk about it, he will eventually talk about it.”
