Confirming an air date after a long wait, Another Era <再創世紀> will finally premiere on September 10 on Hong Kong television screens and August 29 for IQIYI users.
Although Roger Kwok (郭晉安) is the only person left from the original cast of At the Threshold of an Era <創世紀>, he will not be reprising his well-received role. Instead, he will be playing the new dramas’s main antagonist, who is seemingly charismatic on the outside but is really a scheming villain.
Having already watched the first eight episodes of the series, Roger expressed his confidence in the show. He said, “I trust that the series will really bring everyone together as it reflects upon how the Hong Kong society has changed in the last decade. From an actor’s standpoint, I’m really thrilled about production; it looks good and has a great script. The actors are like one big family too.”
When he took part in At the Threshold of an Era in 1999, Roger was one of the younger actors on set. However, now that almost two decades have gone by, Roger laughed and said he is now a senior and mentor to the new group of rising stars. He smiled, “It’s actually a very natural thing – I used to be the person looking up to the more senior artistes.”
With TVB’s awards ceremony in several months, Roger was asked about his chances on winning the TV King award again for the fourth time. Despite his confidence in the series and his acting, Roger admitted that he does not really have the competitive mindset to win any awards this time.
Tavia Yeung (楊怡) and Niki Chow (周勵淇) who will be starring in Another Era was also present at the official press conference along with the rest of the cast, including Pakho Chau (周柏豪), Gloria Tang (鄧佩儀), and Rainky Wai (蔚雨芯).
With Tavia’s birthday on August 30, reporters wondered if Tavia will also celebrating with her husband, Him Law – who’s birthday is on August 28. When teased that she may have pregnancy news for Him as a birthday present, Tavia laughed and said she will leave this up to fate.
