With its previous sequel ending on a teasing note, filming for Forensic Heroes 5 <法證先鋒V> is currently under way. While screenwriter Mui Siu-ching (梅小青) was supposedly keen for Charmaine Sheh (佘詩曼) and Linda Chung (鍾嘉欣) to be back for cameos, it was Bosco Wong (黃宗澤) who returned to add star power to the fifth instalment.
Bosco-Venus Romantic Arc
Bosco plays a senior forensic examiner who romances Venus Wong’s (王敏奕) Head of Major Crime Unit. The role, originally Pakho Chau‘s (周柏豪), eventually went to Bosco as Eric Tsang (曾志偉) extended his invite after Pakho turned it down to focus on his concert and family.
On October 29, the two were spotted filming an outdoor scene on an overhead bridge at Wan Chai, purportedly a bicker scene, where Venus was seen tailing behind Bosco distractedly.
Bosco Reveals Signs of Ageing
Dressed in a suit and cool black shades, Bosco looks admittedly ‘chok’ as he appears deep in thought while standing on the bridge. A close-up take then has the camera zooming in on his facial expressions, with the 40-year-old showcasing various emotions one after another, via furrowing his brows and pursing his lips. Perhaps due to his exaggerated movements, Bosco’s forehead wrinkles appeared prominent, unwittingly highlighting his age gap with co-star Venus Wong, who is eleven years his junior.
As for Venus, she was spotted with an entourage of two assistants helping with her hair and makeup in between takes. Despite passers-by crowding around the set, the two actors were able to remain fully immersed in their onscreen roles.
