“Heart of Greed 3” Cast Confirmed: Not All Will Return

Not all of the original cast members will return for the third installment of TVB’s Heart of Greed <溏心風暴> franchise. Aside from powerhouse leads Louise Lee (李司棋), Michelle Yim (米雪), Susanna Kwan (關菊英) and Ha Yu (夏雨), most of the younger cast members will not be returning to the franchise next year.

Heart of Greed was a big hit when it originally aired in 2007. It revived the careers of Louise Lee and Ha Yu, and pushed young stars such as Linda Chung (鐘嘉欣) to commercial success. In 2008, its sister production Moonlight Resonance <溏心風暴之家好月圓> surpassed its predecessor’s ratings achievement, peaking to 50 viewership points.

In early 2016, with the return of producer Lau Ka-ho (劉家豪) to TVB, the studio announced its plans to make a third installment. According to a reliable source, Louise Lee, Michelle Yim, Susanna Kwan, and Ha Yu have already confirmed their participation in the project.

Linda Chung, who gave birth to a daughter in Vancouver two months ago, will not be returning for the threequel. Raymond Lam (林峯), Tavia Yeung (楊怡), Fala Chen (陳法拉) have also bowed out due to scheduling conflicts.

new-hog3-castOut of the younger actors, only Bosco Wong (黃宗澤) said he will be back for Heart of Greed 3. Moses Chan (陳豪) may not return. Replacing the younger generation of cast members will be Priscilla Wong (黃翠如), Sharon Chan (陳敏之), Eliza Sam (岑麗香), and Vincent Wong (王浩信).

Heart of Greed 3 will continue to focus its theme on powerful families in the food business. The first two installments centered on a family-owned seafood shop and a bakery shop chain, respectively. The third installment will be about a family-owned cha chaan teng (Hong Kong-style restaurant). Filming starts January 2017.

  1. Hmm the younger cast is not attracting me to watch this drama at all. Maybe thats because there’s no one left at TVB.

  2. Why Sharon Chan? I would rather Linda return instead of watching Sharon in this grand production.

    Isn’t Sharon expected to give birth this year-end? Can she participate since the filming will start in January 2017?

      1. @janet72

        Me too not a fan of Sharon. Her acting is not impressive although she has been acting for quite long.

        Yes…i agree that casting Ruco Chan will add more anticipation towards this drama. But i’m glad that there are Bosco & Vincent Wong among the casts.

  3. Actually tbh, I am fine as long as HaYu, Susanna Kean, Michelle Yim and Louise is on the show. They can hold up the show by themselves. Having Pricilla in is not bad too. But wonder why they don’t include a more famed actress, like Nancy or Mandy or even Ali Lee, who is on the rise. Grace seems not bad too.

    1. @dramadrama with you on this one. I enjoy watching the older cast so don’t mind if some of the young one doesn’t return. Hope Bosco get a bigger role in this one though.

      Don’t see Grace Chan so yippeee!!

      1. @dramadrama i know. I like him in the first one. Then his character kinda suck in the 2nd one as they end up promoting raymond. With raymond out of 3rd one, hopefully bosco will get a better role.

    2. @dramadrama Agree with you on the keeping the veterans. As for the younger cast, Vincent is ok but Sharon Chan’s acting is mediocre, not too fond of Priscilla Wong, Eliza and Edwin (though he wasn’t mentioned) as well.
      And hopefully, no more Sisley, Grace or Jason.
      More importantly, the script needs to be good.

    3. @dramadrama @bearbear They’ve missed out Chris lai. Why doesn’t he join the sequel of Heart of greed 3? It’s not that I’m against them adding new cast members but without all the original cast members, the drama doesn’t feel like Heart of greed anymore.

      1. @unknown If they keep all the veterans, at least it’s still semi-linked to the Heart of Greed, unlike the DIF series with the entire casting replaced when they released part 4. Though I am a fan of Louis-Jessica, I still think the name should be changed rather than milking it.
        As for HoG3 or any upcoming series, TVB should consider giving more chances to other artists, especially those who better acting after being supporting artists for years, like what they did to Nancy. Even younger artists like Stephanie Ho, though not of main actress standard at this point, can be given more screen time perhaps? It’s really high time for TVB to spare us from Grace and Sisley. We are the audience, we should have a say in whom we get to watch on TV.

  4. This is like the poorer’s man version. But the previous versions weren’t great. As long as no one claps and talks in rhymes.

  5. I’m actually ok with the younger cast. Especially looking forward to Vincent. His acting and facial expressions are great for roles that require strong emotions.

  6. Wait I thought Steven Ma supposed be in this drama too isn’t it? It would be nice if Niki Chow included in this drama too bad she just don’t act much like before. I kinda missed her acting.

    1. @asian2015

      Steven Ma is casted in Beyond The Realms of Conscience…not this one.

      I miss Niki Chow too. Well, i’m somehow relieved when i know that Nancy Wu & Ali Lee are not included in this drama. Although both are good actress, but i’ve been watching them quite often lately…lol

      1. @diana80 I know right? This 2 ladies has been in so many drama this year for some reason. Omg!! Imagine Ali she’s going to win the best actress this year you won’t be surprised even though she didn’t win the most improved award last year because of that Grace Chan who ruined everything on every drama she’s in.

      2. @unknown Well maybe he wants to spend more time with his wife or he need to take a little break from filming who know. I have noticed tvb have not nominated him that much either for some reason I mean he’s been with tvb like his whole life already and still the same old same for him.

  7. No raymond really sien. Btw should put wayne lai ma…that time wayne lai was just a keh leh feh inside the drama..But her speaking and scolding skill already astonishing!

  8. 1st one was good, second was ok i didn’t finish it. Maybe i am just not into rich family fighting over their inheritance kinda show.

    1. @hannah @funnlim They’ve missed out Chris lai. Why doesn’t he join the sequel of Heart of greed 3? It’s not that I’m against them adding new cast members but without all the original cast members, the drama doesn’t feel like Heart of greed anymore.

  9. Given TVB’s track record with sequels recently, this doesn’t really give me any confidence that it will be any good. Who knows, I could be wrong, but if I’m a betting man, I’d be leaning towards TVB ruining yet another franchise with a crap sequel rather than towards it being any good.

  10. Ha Yu will be starring in Singapore’s long-form sitcom starting in November. A long-form sitcom usually lasts at least 2-3 months, and is filmed as it airs. It might also take longer to film as it is a popular series. I wonder if this will affect Ha Yu’s appearance in HOG 3.

  11. I’ll be watching this only for the older generation and hopefully they’ll be the focus point of the serie… the young new cast nothing is interesting and lacks talented senior. Just Bosco won’t cut it…

  12. Ha yu

    Bosco replace Moses
    Vincent replace Raymond
    Sharon replace Linda
    Priscilla replace Tavia
    Eliza replace Fala
    ……. Replace Chris?
    ……. Replace Vincent?

    ….. Replacr Bosco?
    …… Replace Kate?
    …… Replace Louis Yuen?
    …… Replace Lee heung Kam?
    ……. Replace Wayne?
    ……. Replace joseph Lee

    Louis yuen ust also return as “Uncle Ball”!!!
    Thats my request!

    As for 中仔.. Matthew Ho is a good replacer.

    I also do think that Ruco will look nice in this drama. Raymond Wong will play the role from Bosco

    Ps: LOUIS YUEN as UNCLE BALL u is a must!!!!! 🙂
