Wayne Lai To Star in “Rosy Business 3”; Scriptwriter Cheung Wah Biu Returns to TVB
Wayne Lai (黎耀祥) won two TVB Best Actor awards from starring in Rosy Business <巾幗梟雄> and No Regrets <義海豪情>. Credit must be attributed to scriptwriter, Cheung Wah Biu (張華標), who fleshed out Wayne’s characters fully. It was understood that Cheung Wah Biu will return to TVB in October 2011 and will partner with Lee Tim Sing (李添勝) on new series, Rosy Business 3 <巾幗梟雄 3>! Upon learning of the “Iron Triangle” collaboration, Wayne was extremely happy. Perhaps he may even win a third Best Actor award!
In his May birthday celebration, Wayne made a wish that scriptwriter, Cheung Wah Biu would return to TVB. Producer Lee Tim Sing confirmed that Mr. Cheung will make a comeback after a 14-month departure, while resuming his role as Assistant Creative Director.
Rosy Business 3 To Film in April 2012
Tim Gor said that it would be difficult for Rosy Business 3 to have continuity from Rosy Business and No Regrets. “Sheren Tang (鄧萃雯) and Wayne Lai’s characters already died and we can no longer continue their characters. Perhaps there are some elements of continuity in the story, such as setting the time line in the 1960s or pre-modern period. The story will be independent from the earlier series.
“I have set the filming period with Wayne, which will occur in April 2012.” (What about Sheren?) “She is currently busy filming in mainland. I have to discuss the matter with her. Hopefully, she will have time!”
Currently working for a television studio in Taiwan, Cheung Wah Biu indicated that he did not adjust to living there. His wife was upset [and wanted him to return to Hong Kong]. “I did not finish my current work projects yet. It has not been settled yet. During the summer, my wife came to visit me in Taiwan. I have been in frequent contact with Tim Gor and Wayne Lai!”
Wayne was extremely happy about Mr. Cheung’s return. Wayne noted, “I heard that Cheung Wah Biu will return to TVB. My dream came true!” (Are you filming Rosy Business 3?) “Tim Gor mentioned this to me. By the time the new series is released, it would be two years since No Regrets. The audience should have a fresh feeling.” (Do you feel pressure?) “I am not worried. They have fought in many ‘wars’ before. I believe there will be new material for the audience to watch!” Unfortunately, Sheren Tang did not respond to the reporter’s inquiry at the time of the news publication.
Jayne: This is wonderful news! TVB finally realized that Cheung Wah Biu was an invaluable asset and likely gave him a big pay raise when asking him to come back and work for them. Hopefully they give Mr. Cheung and other members of the scriptwriting department more money to retain and attract new talent.
