Starring Wayne Lai (黎耀祥) and Louisa So (蘇玉華), TVB’s upcoming romantic drama Time for Marriage <男大當婚> held its costume fitting press conference in Tseung Kwan O’s TVB City on September 12. The 20-episode series is produced by Fong Chun Chiu (方駿釗), who has produced dramas Missing You <幸福摩天輪> and the yet-to-air Outbound Love <單戀雙城>.

Described as a “small production,” Time for Marriage tells of a love story between a prominent businesswoman and her chauffer, respectively portrayed by Louisa and Wayne.

Wayne expressed his excitement in working with Louisa and laughed that it is hard for him to find a suitable partner to costar with. He hopes that this new pairing will offer a breath of fresh air for the audience.

Louisa pointed out that the last time she had worked with Wayne in a television production was over ten years ago. She used to joke to Wayne that she wanted to marry his son. “I used to call Wayne my father-in-law. Now his son is growing well. Let me see my hubby!”

Time for Marriage also costars Natalie Tong (唐詩詠), Tony Hung (洪永城), Ram Chiang (洪永城), Benjamin Yuen (袁偉豪), Mary Hon (韓馬利), Stanley Cheung (張景淳), and Chung King Fai (鍾景輝).

    You know TVB is desperate when Louisa left as a 3rd line actress on a 4 year hiatus, and returns as a first-line actress.

    Not taking anything away from Louisa though, she’s a great actress, and I like her, but she does not deserve a female lead, just handed to her like that.

      Um…..but she wasn’t 3rd line before hiatus. She had lead actress starring roles in series like Wasabi Mon Amour, Winter Melon Tale, Misleading Track etc. before.

      She’s quite lucky TVB didn’t overlook her this time around as her first drama back THC2, is just supporting and now gets to lead her own drama again (as she should)

        Compared to Priscilla Wong ( always giving lead roll) Louisa so is ten times better than

        Agree. Louise So is an experienced good actress and has acted many TVB drama series as 1st or 2nd lead actress.

      Why is she not deserving the female lead role when you yourself acknowledge that she’s a great actress?

      And Al is right. Louisa So is hardly a 3rd line actress. She’s at least 2nd line if not first line.

      She has been lead or second lead in the following series
      – Misleading Track
      – Phoenix Rising
      – Wasabi Mon Amour
      – Winter Melon Tales
      – A Bride for A Ride
      – Men in Pain

        Louise So is a 1st lead actress in a play and has acted many lead roles in TVB drama series. She is a good actress and is a good match for Wayne, age wise. I prefer to watch Wayne paired up with her than with Nancy Wu, Natalie Tong or Elaine Yiu.

        There are many actors/actresses that are great, but aren’t given first lead opportunities, just take a look at Nancy Wu, for example. She can destroy any actress that had entered TVB in the last 5 years and was given a leading role, but Nancy, was never even given a second lead, until recently. She was playing 3rd lead for years.

        Yeah you guys are right, I only remembered Louisa as a 3rd line actress (2nd lead at most for a series or two) in the last few years. Didn’t realize she actually had first lead roles.

      Louis has been a lead before. She is experienced and is actually a good age match for Wayne. I like her acting, but I am surprised that TVB was willing to give this to her. Would you rather see Wayne with younger people again (Bulet Brain)?

        Wayne Lai needs to pair up with this kind of actress who is middle aged and acts well. I am sure that Wayne will have more sparkles with her than with Sire Ma, Natalie Tong, or Nancy Wu.

        Agreed! Wayne with Louisa and Christine (Ng) are much more fitting.

      She is better to be a lead actress ten times better than Priscilla Wong. If Priscilla Wong Can be a lead actress why not for Louisa So? Her acting really natural and good to watch.

        Louisa So is a great and natural actress! I think she was the female lead in Misleading Track! =)

        And as for Priscilla, well I liked her acting in karma rider and reality check (: But I don’t want to see her over-promoted either. Most of the second-line actresses (eg. Nancy Wu, Mandy Wong, Elaine Yiu, etc.) are pretty good and deserves a chance to lead a series!

        I feel sorry for these actresses, i.e. Nancy Wu, Elaine Yiu and Mandy Wong. They deserve better promotion by TVB.

      Agree! She was definitely evil. It shows that she’s a good actress and can handle supporting and main roles.

    I have some doubts whether this series will be successful. It does have Wayne Lai and Louisa So but given that Font Chun Chiu’s a newbie director and his first work of Missing You wasn’t a hit. Nevertheless, I really hope this series won’t disappoint!

      It seems like a small production and not like those grand ones Wayne usually stars in.

      • Shrimpboat replied:

        If I were Wayne, I’d be relieved. Not being a grand production makes the expectations lower and people can actually enjoy the drama without being nit-picky about every single little thing.

        A comedy drama is hard to be a grand production. TVB now just wants to make material art and comedy series. Wayne must follow TVB’s direction.

    Good to see Louisa back. Like Wayne said, there aren’t that many actresses around his generation. So, it’s good that he has another option now.

    Too bad that Elaine isn’t filming this series anymore! I hope she films a grand production soon!

      TVB does not seem to promote Elaine Yiu, despite her good acting. Sigh ~

    I remember watching her as a newbie in the Louis Koo version of Condor Heroes. Even then she was more natural than some ‘veteran’ actors now and miles ahead of the current pageant winners. Its just that in all the shows that she has had significant roles, the show wasn’t great. Just cos she isn’t promoted, doesn’t mean she can’t act. TVB have done that to many of the 2nd and 3rd liners

    Looking forward to this! And finally Wayne is back to age-approriate pairings too. He seems quite relieved for that as well. Also TVB’s 20-episode series tend to be of a better quality…less possibility of boring episodes in the middle.
