While TVB executives are hard at work to nurture the next batch of rising stars, current fadans, Fala Chen (陳法拉), Kate Tsui (徐子珊), Myolie Wu (胡杏兒), Tavia Yeung (楊怡) and Linda Chung (鍾嘉欣) are working extra hard in their leading roles for the new series being produced.
With just a handful of actresses who can take on leading roles, their schedules have been extremely packed, many times filming multiple series back-to-back.
TVB executive, Catherine Tsang (曾勵珍) is currently in works to produce new drama, The Love Firm <傳愛事務所> featuring Wayne Lai (黎耀祥) and Moses Chan (陳豪). However, the lead actress has not been confirmed yet. According to reports, Catherine is pushing to cast Fala Chen as the lead actress, however the filming coincides with Fala’s current filming schedule for Triumph in the Skies 2 <衝上雲宵II>.
In the end, both producers compromised with Fala’s early release from Triumph in the Skies, while delaying the production of The Love Firm.
When asked about the “fight” over Fala Chen, Triumph in the Skies’ producer, Tommy Leung (梁家樹) said, “It wasn’t a fight. We will do our best to accommodate everyone’s schedule because we all work for TVB. Fala just needs to finish her scenes for Triumph in the Skies in Great Britain, France and Taiwan. She should be done by early December and will be able to start filming for the new series.”
Tsui Ching Hong, the series producer of The Love Firm, explained that he could not imagine anyone else besides Fala for this role. “Her character is very cool, arrogant and strong. We need to find an actress who is of the same caliber as Wayne and Moses. We’re able to accommodate Fala’s schedule after filming Triumph in the Skies 2, so we should be able to start production in late November and start shooting the scenes with just Wayne and Moses first until Fala joins us in early December.”
Responding to reports that TVB producers are fighting over her, Fala said, “I’m just concerned about my lack of time to dedicate to studying the scripts since I’ll be travelling quite a bit for Triumph in the Skies 2, so I’ll need to be diligent about checking email to receive the scripts. I love being involved in Triumph in the Skies 2; I’m also really excited about the new series, especially because I get work with the two TV Kings!”
