Dubbed as the golden couple in Armed Reaction <陀槍師姐>, Bobby Au Yeung (歐陽震) and Esther Kwan (關詠荷) may reunite again onscreen!
As TVB is gearing up for increased local competition next year, the drama production team has been pressured to produce more blockbuster dramas. Production executive, Tommy Leung (梁家樹) has invited Esther Kwan to return to TVB, reuniting with her old partner Bobby Au Yeung in a love drama!
A Tragic Love Story that Transcends 1,000 Years
Esther and Bobby may pair as a tragic couple in a catastrophic love story which transcends 1,000 years. Esther’s character is under a curse in which she will die in the arms of her lover, Bobby in three different eras, Song Dynasty, the 1960s and the modern world. Other supporting actors will include Ben Wong (黃智賢) and Ngo Ka Nin (敖嘉年).
Producer Chong Wai Kin (莊偉建) admitted that he has approached Esther and was confident that she and Bobby would create sparks again onscreen. As it was still in the initial discussion, producer Chong revealed that they still needed to iron out certain issues.
Esther and Bobby to Be Main Leads
As the story revolves around the tragic couple, Esther and Bobby will be the only lead actors in the entire drama. “They will be leading the drama from beginning to the end. However, there will be other actors such as Ben Wong and Ngo Ka Nin. Besides the cast, we also pay much attention to the film location. As we are filming in the 1950s to 1960s era, we will travel to Foshan TV City for shooting to present a more realistic backdrop.”
Esther Excited to Reunite with Bobby
When the reporter sought confirmation from Esther, she was surprised and said, “How do you know about it so fast? TVB did talk to me, but it is still at a preliminary stage. I find that the story is very unique and I like it very much.”
Talking about her old partner Bobby, Esther said, “This partner really attracts me. After working together in Armed Reaction, we did act together again as a couple. In The Legendary Four Aces <金裝四大才子>, I paired with Nick Cheung (張家輝) and not with Bobby. We have not worked for over ten years and it’s important to have a good partner. After all, we know each other’s working style and we do not need to find time to figure out our style again. It’s more comfortable this way and I really wish to work with him again. However, the discussions are only in the initial stage and they have not materialized yet.”
Esther Craves to Act Again
Revealing that she has rejected TVB’s invitation before due to unsuitable roles, Esther craves to act again. “I rarely watch drama nowadays, but sometimes, I will itch for acting again. In the past, I can act a few characters in a year. Realistically speaking, I only act one character now.”
Bobby Persuades Nick to Release Wife
Sharing that they had great chemistry, Bobby has not been able to find a partner that matched him so well. Bobby also hopes to work with Esther again and even tried to persuade Nick to release his wife.
Revealing in a light-hearted tone, Bobby said, “I called Nick and asked him to let his wife to film again. It’s better that she partners with me and does not need to worry about having any rumors with me. It’s better than partnering with Benny Chan (陳浩民)!”
Nick Cheung Supports Esther
Although Nick has turned down TVB’s invitation many times due to conflicting schedules, he is supportive of his wife returning to TVB. “I know that she has liaised with TVB before, but it’s really up to her to decide if she wants to act again. I do not lock her at home. If there is a good partner and good script, I will definitely support her to make a comeback. Even though the family needs her, I will still let her return to filming. Our daughter is also older now. As for me, my schedule is fully packed now.”
Esther also revealed that Brittany is more independent and she can return to work with a peace of mind. However, Esther will first need to find someone to take care of Brittany before she will consider filming again.
