Pakho Chau’s Screen Time Cut Short in “Line Walker 3”?

TVB’s anticipated sequel, Line Walker 3 <使徒行者3> has started filming in August and Raymond Lam (林峯), Kenneth Ma (馬國明), Benz Hui (許紹雄) and Pakho Chau (周柏豪) are confirmed to be joining the cast. While Pakho was a major character in the drama’s previous installment, his screen time is reportedly cut short in the new drama after receiving criticism from Mainland Chinese netizens for his political comments.

At the end of Line Walker: Prelude, Lok Siu Fung and Foon-Hei Gor, played by Pakho and Benz respectively, traveled to Thailand to rebuild their lives. As Lok Siu is now Foon-Hei’s right hand man, logically Lok Siu would be an important character and would have considerable screen time in the upcoming drama. However, after one month of filming, Pakho has already completed filming all his scenes.

While the production team decided to not replace Pakho’s role with another actor, it is speculated that Pakho’s screen time would be filled by Benz. When the media reached out to Benz for comment, he replied, “I don’t know. They haven’t started filming my parts yet.”

      @m0m0 Seems alot of people dislike him but I like him. Haha I like his screen time w/Priscilla in the prequel. Since Raymond Lam is back they are probably just focusing on him mostly which is depressing and I will skip. Never like the first series anyway. lol….

        @wm2017 I don’t think people dislike him. But because his post on the IG back on 2nd July asking people to registered for Voter. This angered Chinese netizen, they accuse him as Hong Kong Independence.
        Line Walker 3 is the co-production between TVB and Tencent China , so to please the Chinese, they have to cut him short.
        Poor guy and bad luck. I don’t think he did anything wrong.

      @jimmyszeto Totally agree. Never liked him as a singer or actor. Like Shawn Yue, he’s pretentious AF.

    I wonder just how many artist roles are affected by the HK-China conflict? Was Pakho comment enough to affect his career?

    It didn’t make sense that his character is still alive. Also, since his character left with Benz’s, I don’t understand how Benz hasn’t started filming yet. The plot already sounds so random and is too overloaded with “main” actors.

    He’s ok-looking. But his acting is just so-so. Nothing to shout about.
