Hyped up to be TVB’s biggest drama this year, Line Walker 3 <使徒行者3> has already started airing on myTV SUPER and online Chinese streaming services. While many of the cast, such as Raymond Lam (林峯), Michael Miu (苗僑偉), Benz Hui (許紹雄), Benjamin Yuen (袁偉豪) and Priscilla Wong ( 黃翠如), were heavily promoted for reprising their roles, Pakho Chau (周柏豪) was not in the cast credits despite having filmed several scenes in the sequel. With the omission, many fans are left questioning if the star will even make an appearance.
Playing a major role in the Line Walker: The Prelude <使徒行者2>, Pakho’s character faked his death and reappeared to follow Benz’s character to Thailand as his right-hand man. While there is room to explore Pakho’s character in Line Walker 3, many are disappointed that his role may have been downplayed or even shelved.
Last year, Pakho posted a political comment on social media urging Hong Kong residents to vote, which angered many people in China who threatened to boycott his works. Though Pakho reacted by deleting all his posts from his Instagram page, the damage was done. His screen time was significantly cut during the filming of Line Walker 3 in September 2019 due to the controversy. Now that his name does not appear in the cast credits, it remains to be seen whether Pakho may only make a cameo appearance or his scenes are cut entirely from the final edit.
