After the success of The Defected <鐵探>, TVB is following up with a new drama starring Kara Wai (惠英紅) and Philip Keung (姜皓文), and Vincent Wong (王浩信). The artistes are already busy researching and studying for their roles for the drama, which is a detective thriller revolving around different mental illnesses. Filming will start in April.
Kara Collaborating with TVB Again
When Kara won TVB Best Actress for her role in The Defected, she stated that she was interested in working with TVB again. Luckily, fans do not have to wait long to see this happen. It is reported that Kara will play a much more intense character compared to her role in The Defected. However, when the media asked Kara for more information, Kara was tight lipped and replied, “The company is discussing [the details]. I don’t know anything else.”
Philip Starts Grueling Training
To prepare for his role and to show a healthy image, Philip recently started an extreme workout regime and has been running three times a day.
In an interview, Philip confessed that he signed on for the new drama but he didn’t know who his co-stars are, “I really didn’t know that it is Kara! It’s great that it’s her. The last time we worked together, it was comfortable and the atmosphere was great. Tentatively, I will be playing the role of a senior officer. We haven’t discussed the full details of the script. Everything is at the preliminary stage.”
When asked about his salary, Philip shared that it didn’t matter and he cared more about working with a good cast, “In fact, TVB Executive Felix To (杜之克) said he wanted the original cast of The Defected to film the new drama, and it wasn’t necessarily going to be a police drama. The idea was later shelved. This new drama is also very good and I can work with Kara again.”
