Dispelling Divorce Rumors, Yang Mi and Hawick Lau to Star in “The Prosecutor”
After the successful broadcast of 2016’s The Interpreter <親愛的翻譯官> and this year’s The Negotiators <談判官>, Yang Mi has agreed to film the last installment to the trilogy drama, The Prosecutor <檢察官>. Starring in the first two series respectively, Huang Xuan (黃軒) and Huang Zitao‘s (黃子韜) popularity received a big boost. Instead of pairing with another fresh-faced actor, Yang will instead film with husband, Hawick Lau (劉愷威), for The Prosecutor.
Fans are delighted Yang Mi will be reunited with Hawick onscreen. After falling in love on the set of Ru Yi <如意>, the couple’s subsequent projects included 2012 movie Holding Love <HOLD住爱> and 2013 drama A Clear Midsummer Night <盛夏晚晴天>.
More importantly, Yang Mi and Hawick co-starring in a new project together indicates that their marriage is still strong. Since getting married in 2014, the couple spends little time together due to their filming schedules. They even left their three-year-old daughter under the care of Hawick’s parents in Hong Kong. The couple’s marriage was further speculated to have dived after Hawick’s alleged affair with co-star Angela Wang (王鷗) in 2016, when he was spotted to have entered her hotel room several times.
Frequently facing divorce rumors, Yang Mi used her actions to prove that she still loves Hawick. Even after the Angela Wang incident, Yang Mi said she has “complete trust” in her husband. During the Lunar New Year holiday, Yang Mi flew to Hong Kong to spend time with Hawick and their daughter.
Fans felt that it was a smart move for Yang Mi to film The Prosecutor with Hawick, so she can simultaneously dispel divorce rumors and revive Hawick’s slumping career.
The Prosecutor will start principal photography on April 19. While Yang Mi will portray the role of a prosecutor, it is unclear what Hawick’s character will be in the drama.
