Amber Tang’s (鄧卓殷) sudden departure from TVB series Doppelganger <雙生陌生人> is allegedly due to her boyfriend Arnold Kwok‘s (郭子豪) jealousy over her kissing scene with a male co-star.
Actress Yuki Law (羅毓儀) admitted that she was called in after Amber left the production. Receiving the notice only a week before filming began, she had to memorize all her lines in a short amount of time. While Yuki was unaware of the reason behind Amber’s departure, it is speculated that it had to do with the heated kiss scene with Telford Wong (黃庭鋒) in the drama.
Although Amber was slated to take part in the series, rumor has it that her boyfriend Arnold Kwok (郭子豪) was extremely against her kissing Telford onscreen. Respecting her boyfriend’s wishes, Amber left before the production began. Reluctant to give a straight answer, Producer Lam Chi Wah (林志華) simply said, “After discussing, we had no choice but to switch to a different actress.”
When asked about her feelings on being a second choice, Yuki said she does not mind picking up the role after Amber gave up her part.
With Doppelganger currently underway, Stars Academy <聲夢傳奇> singers Yumi Chung (鍾柔美) and Rock Ho (何晉樂) will be singing the opening theme. Although details are still to be finalized, Lam Chi Wah will make the announcements as soon as he receives confirmation.
