After Lawrence Ng (吳啟華) confirmed in starring in The Hippocratic Crush <On Call 36小時> sequel, it was widely speculated that the actor will reprise his role as “Dr. Paul Ching” from the Healing Hands <妙手仁心> trilogy. However, during a recording for an episode of TVB variety program, Let’s Play with Our Food <皆大歡喜之溏心風暴>, Lawrence said he hoped that he will portray a different character instead.
“I’m still not sure what character I will be playing, but I want to have a new image,” Lawrence said. “Dr. Ching was a very iconic character, but it might get boring. I actually want to be a villain, or someone like the weird one-eyed doctor, ‘Black Jack’ (manga character).”’
The sequel was originally planned to begin filming at the end of the year. However, to accommodate Lawrence’s schedule, TVB postponed the filming to February 2013.
Lawrence revealed that he invited Ada Choi (蔡少芬) to film the sequel, but she turned him down, reasoning that she is too busy. Currently without a female lead, Lawrence asked the press for suggestions. When the press suggested the pretty Christine Kuo (苟芸慧), Lawrence’s eyes lit up and asked, “Who is she? Is she really pretty? What time does her drama air? I’ll take a look when I go home tonight, and then make a suggestion to the crew!”
Besides Lawrence, original The Hippocratic Crush cast members, Kenneth Ma (馬國明) and Tavia Yeung (楊怡) will also return in the sequel, but it is currently unknown if they will reprise their roles from the original.
