TVB 45th Anniversary drama, Silver Spoon, Sterling Shackles < 名媛望族> will pick up the time slot of The Last Steep Ascent<天梯> starting October 22. The premiere episode will run for two hours.
The story centers around the influential Chung family in 1930s British Hong Kong. The patriarch of the family, Arthur Chung (Damian Lau 劉松仁) is the colony’s first Chinese barrister. Although he is characterized by a strong sense of justice and modernity, Arthur is a very stubborn man, and he leads a hypocritically traditional family.
Arthur has four wives and one lover. His first and official wife, Koo Sam Lan (Mary Hon 韓馬利), hails from a prominent and noble family. His second wife, Aisin-Gioro Yee Ma (Idy Chan 陳玉蓮), is the princess of the fallen Qing Dynasty and his true love. His third wife, Yvonne Yik (Elena Kong 江美儀), is the strong-minded daughter of a banker. His fourth wife, Hong Tsz Kwan (Tavia Yeung 楊怡), is a Peking opera star. His lover, Chiu Dan Dan (JJ Jia 賈曉晨), is a dance hostess who seduces Arthur for his money.
Arthur’s eldest son, Charles (Kenneth Ma 馬國明) idolized his father as a child, and he followed his father’s footsteps to become a barrister. However, the open-minded Charles never liked the idea of polygamy, and it is for this reason which made him grow more distant from Arthur. Second in the family is Arthur’s bastard son, Jimmy (Vincent Wong 王浩信), who never seems to have a goal in life. Youngest daughter, Elaine (Sire Ma 馬賽), is in love with the poor policeman Yung Tat Chi (Adrian Chau 周志文) and later marries him, much to her parent’s disappointment.
Charles falls in love and proposes to the independent Kwai Siu Yau (Rebecca Zhu 朱晨麗), who worked as a production’s assistant for a theater troupe. Believing that her boyfriend Kam Muk Shui (Ron Ng 吳卓羲) was dead, Siu Yau falls for Charles’ charms and marries him. Muk Shui returns as the leader of an underground triad, and extracts revenge on the Chung family by destroying the family from the inside.
Tavia Yeung and Elena Kong Drowns Damian Lau with Kisses
The 63-year-old Damian Lau definitely still has the heart and energy! A majority of the drama’s lovemaking and kiss scenes will center on Damian Lau’s character, Arthur, with his third and fourth wife, portrayed by Elena Kong and Tavia Yeung respectively. Elena seduces Damian by giving him exotic dance performances every night. Tavia and Damian frequently engage in violent kissing sprees!
Damian laughed, “Kissing is nothing! All of my wives are very pretty! When we do intimate scenes, it is very sexy and I can easily get in the mood. It seems very real!”
Although Damian’s character may be the luckiest man in the drama, his character’s ending is definitely not so pleasing to hear. Damian revealed the spoilers, “This drama isn’t just about the girls fighting for my affections and power. Near the end, my son and I successfully abolish the practice of polygamy. When Mary Hon dies, my character will undergo a huge change. My most beloved is Idy Chan, but both she and Elena Kong will leave me to be with their true love. I finally realize that I actually love Tavia Yeung the most, and I will try to win her heart back.”
