The success of 2013’s Inbound Troubles <老表，你好嘢!> propelled Wong Cho Lam (王祖藍) to greater fame. Not only has Cho Lam earned opportunities to make lucrative appearances in mainland China, he has also gained more endorsement and film offers. The story of Inbound Troubles, penned by Cho Lam himself, was well-received critically, and TVB immediately green-lighted a second series, asking Cho Lam to return as the scriptwriter.
Success has inflated Cho Lam’s ego according to recent gossip reports. During the filming of Inbound Troubles’ sister production Come On, Cousin <老表，你好hea!>, which is currently airing, Cho Lam displayed arrogant diva behavior on set and sporadically changed dialogue during filming, upsetting the cast. Costar Roger Kwok (郭晉安) reportedly voiced his displeasure at Cho Lam’s inconsistency and the two argued on set. Cho Lam was also very willing to reveal spoilers of the series to the media, displeasing the producer.
In addition, the gossip reports claimed that Cho Lam was often absent at promotions due to scheduling conflicts. He did, however, attend a promotion event for the series on October 30, but when the organizers suggested that the cast should dress up in costumes in lieu of Halloween, Cho Lam refused, explaining that he is a Christian and cannot celebrate Halloween. The organizers had no choice but to change the promotion’s theme last-minute.
Despite these rumors, Cho Lam and Roger expressed their eagerness to work together again in a new project at a recent promotional event. Roger praised Cho Lam’s creativity and said filming for Come On, Cousin was very enjoyable.
