Artistes Wish Savio Tsang a Speedy Recovery
There have been reports that 58-year-old actor, Savio Tsang (曾偉權), is currently battling lung cancer. However, the media has not been able to reach his cell number to confirm the news. Regardless, Savio’s colleagues and friends from the industry hope that he will recover soon.
With the release of Forensic Heroes 4 <法證先鋒IV>, Savio was initially cast in an important role as Alice Chan’s (陳煒) love interest. Producer Mui Siu Ching (梅小青) expressed that she wanted to reunite Savio and Alice onscreen after their successful partnership in Deep in the Realm of Conscience <宮心計2深宮計>. Due to his sickness, Savio resigned from his role after one day of filming and he was replaced by Timothy Cheng (鄭子誠).
Alice said, “While we were filming, Savio said he wasn’t feeling well. He went to the doctor’s the next day for a check up. He has a really important role in the drama so Mui Siu Ching asked if he could do it. Due to his health, he declined but agreed to a cameo role. I don’t know about his condition right now, but I hope that he will recover soon.”
Producer Mui Siu Ching also confirmed that Savio’s condition had improved slightly after the series started filming, so she cast him in a cameo role in Forensic Heroes 4 instead.
In hopes of learning more about Savio’s health condition, reporters reached out to Mui Siu Ching’s younger sister and former artiste, Cutie Mui (梅小惠), who had dated Savio for 13 years. However, Cutie expressed that the two have lost contact, “I don’t know about his health condition, but I wish him the best and hope that he is recovering. With the current coronavirus outbreak, I hope that everyone’s health is okay.”
